Re: Old Settings files

Hi Colin

Yes that's correct, you no longer need the countries.xml file.

Best wishes

Re: AS Font query

The simplest answer is that it isn't really possible - this is why the FH rich text feature was my number 1 'wish list' request for 15 years. However, you may be able to get acceptable results as long as you consistently use the same font and font size in AS and FH (including reports). See this arti...

Re: Search and Replace Plugin

Yes I found this LinkID stuff quite difficult to deal with when I first started to implement this feature. But this thread has encouraged me to go back and look at it. Although AS is technically correctly recording the data (just to reassure David and others!), in the next version it will not create...

Re: Search and Replace Plugin

Hi Mike I'm fully willing to accept AS might be doing something wrong here because this is a relatively new feature, but I've mimicked David's birth source and it seems to work correctly. Things that AS does that might not match what you've seen in FH: The IDs might not be sequential (e.g. there cou...

Re: FH7 Source Template definitions in AS?

No, the source template is created in FH. In AS you simply link to it - so in the Source Template editor you would click on 'New' and then select the template from the list and click Save. So actually it takes just a few seconds to import it. However, the AS Source Template Editor can be used to spe...

Re: FH7 Source Template definitions in AS?

Yes any source template you create in Family Historian can be imported into AS, it doesn't have to be in the essential collection. The only thing to understand is that AS currently only supports the use of source templates with the default 'method 1' (splitter) sources. Once the source templates hav...

Re: Odd behaviour with accented characters

Thanks for letting me know about this Peter. It flagged up that the handling of rich text accented and other characters was more complex than I'd accounted for. I'm hoping I've fixed this so can you try out this version and see?

Victor, I think Peter is talking about a transcription of a census in a table in the source text rather than an image.

Re: problem viewing landscape *.RTF reports in MSWord

Well the page on the screen was in portrait mode so if you're saving that it makes sense that it will be formatted in portrait. I looked for a way to change it to Landscape and the only place where I could see that was in the Printer Setup. Changing it there changes it to landscape on the screen and...

Re: Entering un-related people in census?

I think opinions would differ. Personally I wouldn't add them to my family tree but would just add them in the source text manually.

Re: Narrative Report Source Text Table issues

Yes AS does have a 'fit' button that automatically scales census columns and this helps a lot but doesn't solve the problem for wider/later census records. I did make the suggestion during FH7 testing to split the table over multiple rows. It is something that I might end up doing in AS but I'd pref...

Re: Person IDs in Ancestral Sources

The idea of the source text generated with help by the Auto-text feature is that it helps to create a transcription. So including a column of IDs in there would move away from that concept. However, if you use FH7 and the Rich Text sources there is an option to include a hyperlink to each individual...

Re: Web Clipper

Maybe, but that cannot "import facts from most websites"! The facts must be created in the usual ways. Only Text from Source, or Notes, etc, can benefit from cut and paste of formatted text. I suspect they're using the word "facts" as in the usual meaning of "information" rather than the technical ...

Re: FH7 create new source record for an event

Yes I agree with Mike, it does seem wrong that the option has gone and should be reported. The original options from FH6 that you refer to are still there if you right-click on an Individual rather than a fact. I'm not suggesting that helps you but it does illustrate an inconsistency.
