Re: Sharing a note

You can link media to any Source that is linked to the Note Record, but not to the Note Record itself.

Re: Moving in Ancestors view

The Preferences dialogue for the Focus Window (accessible via Customize View… ) has Max. Ancestor Generations (space permitting): but if you try to enter a value greater than 5 an error box tells you to “Enter an integer between 2 and 5.” Earlier versions of FH did not have the Focus Window, and man...

It may not be PC on this forum, but I dont want my source images or family photos located within fh as no one else in the family owns fh software.
Storing images and family photos in folders within the FH Media folder would not prevent access by a user without FH software.

Re: "Cannot load file" error

I was able to load the file OK; it took several minutes and generated a massive exception report, but no error messages. FH Focus Window at bottom right has: Individuals: 879234 Families: 305277. My 9-year-old laptop has 6 GB RAM and I recently upgraded (free) from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

Re: GEDCOM Exporting Data Does Not Contain Data Just Imported

If you want everything in an FH GEDCOM file to be available for Import to something else, you don't need to do an Export at all. Just Import the FH GEDCOM file.

Re: Ancestry DNA tests

Have you thought of using Named Lists? You could have a Named List for each of your Groups, and add relevant records to it; the records in a Named List can be a mixture of Individual, Family, Note, Source, etc. One advantage of this approach is that any record can be in more than one Named List.

Re: Website created with FH software - can I include that in a WYSIWYG Website software programme

I found that I could navigate that over-long string of black boxes, but only by using the keyboard down and right arrow keys. I think I counted 32 items, which suggests the need for a more hierarchical menu structure.

A possible solution requires two queries.

Then use an Individual query with row conditions to Add Unless… in this N...
