As suggested I used a query to find the blank note fields in my exported gedcom file. Either of the two Custom Queries in the FHUG 'Downloads' section could be used on my file. ie Individual Notes.fhq or Find all People with Local Notes.fhq By sorting on 'Note' on the query all the blank fields appe...

I am currently exporting my FH gedcom to import into TNG 8. I have about 400 notes mainly related to individuals and I have editted the notes so that selective parts or all of a note are private with the [[ ]] facility and not exported. That works fine. What I am finding however is that if I make al...

Having found the archive pages I used the 'Find' facility in Explorer, put my user name in the find box and paged through the archive.

Against my profile I noticed my total posts was 30. The post I was looking for appeared to have had gone. My question is 'Are posts archived pe...

V4 nbsp;- upside down text

Is this problem confined to XP or has anybody had this problem using Vista?

I am looking at evaluating FH V4 on Vista Home Premium 64 bit and would be interested if anyone has had the problem on Vista. Reading the tread it appears that only XP is affected.

Where do I find Read Only FH

I want to send someone my Gedcom and associated multimedia files on a CD so that they can view my tree in Read Only FH.

Where do I find the link to download a copy of Read Only FH. I can't find it on searching.

Will there be a V4 Read Only ?

Keeping FH4 on two pc's in sync

Thanks for reply Jane. I would have thought one of the main reasons for having the Project folder was that all the data required for a project was 100% in it (or could be if all the multimedia files were copied into it). The holding of parameters in Application Data folders and in the Registry would...

Keeping FH4 on two pc's in sync

In the past with FH V3 to keep my data in sync on two pc's it was necessary to transfer not just the latest Gedcom file but also the Application settings and data. In my case as I use flags on diagrams I also had to take into account the connection between icons and flags stored in the registry. In ...

Moving FH and display of flag icons on diagrams

As suggested I exported the diagram file and did the edit. As I had nearly 50 icons there were the same number of path entries in the file to edit. Using Wordpad and 'Find and Replace All' saved alot of work updating the paths. The diagram was loaded and the default set and hey presto it worked...Th...
