Re: Using FH Family Trees on Independent Website

I am not a user or expert on Wordpress, but it should be quite simple to do. I have a research website on two family names - www.http://www.bourchier.tantrem.com/index.php - where I have done a similar thing by adding a couple of lines of html into one of the standard php pages, in this case the ind...

Re: Apparent corruption of Saved Charts

As an update to my previous post on corruption in saved charts, I have been notified by Calico Pie that the bug has been resolved and the fix will be included in the next point release, probably 7.0.4. No date yet on the availability, but should be soon.

Re: Narrative Report - Highlight Mentioned Records tickbox

and my initial query on here and to CP Support did not have any mention of a website or hyperlinks, just Mentioned Records coming from the Publish Narrative Report!
No wonder we get so confused!

Re: Narrative Report - Highlight Mentioned Records tickbox

colevallygirl, you must be working on a different version of FH than I am. I'm on 7.0.3 If I select Publish -> Narrative reports -> Descendants by Generation, select C W S Munro as the head person, then click OK, I get a report. Now I click Save Report As and select pdf file - no links. Save Report ...

Re: Narrative Report - Highlight Mentioned Records tickbox

Picking up on this from your original query, were the pages for the parents in the report in question? If there weren't then of course there wouldn't be any potential links. At the time that I reported this here in the Forum and to support, 'Mentioned Records' did NOT mean a hyperlink, as you canno...

Re: Narrative Report - Highlight Mentioned Records tickbox

Well, to me after all the discussions above, that Highlight Mentioned Records is a misnomer and as useful as a chocolate teapot! We, the users, cannot change who or what gets added as a 'Mentioned Record', nor the colour of the output from Blue. If you do use the Narrative Report in a dvd or web gen...

Re: Narrative Report - Highlight Mentioned Records tickbox

The response from CP Support is : "Mentioned records" are in fact record links. The Records Window and the Book Window does not support record links, but report designers can implement references to records as record links, and if you use one of these reports when generating a website, the record li...

Re: Apparent corruption of Saved Charts

Please be aware that there is a 'bug' in v7.0.3.0 which I have reported in support ref #469349 about the saving of charts, particularly the All Rels. What I found was that I could open up an all relatives chart and everything looks perfect. Now I saved the diagram as a F H Chart. Keep this original ...

I cannot find where the tick box is mentioned in the Help system, hence the query. With an unticked Highlight Mentioned Records this is what ...

Re: V7 PDF creation very slow, creating huge files

Are you saying that the Text from Source fields for both sources and citations and also Notes for both sources and citations are being truncated when included in reports? For notes is it just source and citation notes or also other notes as well?...

I, too, received a soft release email for 7.0.3 and it has now meant that I can see what is actually coming out in a report, Descendants by Generation for 15 gens and approx 2,200 individuals, with pictures, sources, etc amounting to over 410 pages. AND, I can save it to pdf in a reasonably good tim...

Re: All Relatives chart has drawn incorrect lines

Yes, Mike. I can get the lines to show apart by moving the Smith lines to the left, so it is a case of overlapping lines when they should not be. I am now going to add the 3 children of John Coote and his wife Emily, which will probably throw up some more lines. Update. Closed down the chart without...

Firstly, I have logged this as an issue with CP #469349, but it has effectively stopped me from responding progress to a client, as I cannot afford to have errors like this! Has anyone else had this kind of issue? In adding a family tree, and wanting to produce an All Relatives Chart, the chart has ...

Is anyone else having this, or seen this problem? First time I start FH, then select the project from the project list, click Open project, it takes about 15 seconds to load the gedcom and show the Individuals list. I can then immediately search and select an individual, and do an edit to his name o...
