Re: Diagram Icons in FH7

Mike I read all that in the Help segment. The problem was the ProgramData folder After a lot of Googling around I discovered that the ProgramData folder is HIDDEN. I then had to find how to UNHIDE (?) it. The problem has now been resolved, but it is becoming apparent that a degree in computer progra...

Diagram Icons in FH7

Having come to grips with some of the changes - including the Text from Source stuff - I find that I am unable to use the Icon facility in Diagrams as I used to do. I have used the icons downloaded from Brian's Icons for Censuses, B, M, and D, recording , little pictures of Miners, Ships, etc. These...

Lost Expression

Many moons ago I asked for assistance in identifying Ancestors with coloured Diagrams. Due to circumstances I have lost this Expression. It was a derivative of =IsAncestorOf(%INDI%,FileRoot()) ,starting with my Grandparents. Thus the File Root part would be taken by my grandparents whose RID's are 1...

Re: Narrative Report Heading how to change it?

If you go to Report Options > Page Layout > Header, you will probably find
"Descendants of Emily Matilda Nash/Payne by Generation".
You can edit this out just to read "Descendants by Generation", or remove it completely.

Re: Relationship to Root

Right click on one of the Record Labels (ID, Dates, etc), click on Configure
Click on Relationship to Root and use the Right hand arrow to place it in the Column list. you can then move it up and down to where you would like it to be.

GRO PDF Sytem

I feel that I should bring an apparent anomaly in the GRO's PDF email system to your attention. I recently ordered a PDF image of an ancestor's Death certificate, indicating in the box "Your reference" that she be the "Wife of Samuel...". This was to isolate the correct certificate from several deat...

Re: vertical diagram

Maybe you are looking for one of the Diagram variants shown under View > Standard Diagram Types.
The Descendant, Pedigree and Bow Tie Charts all print in a horizontal aspect, which is what I think you may be after.

Re: Creating a new record type

I use the Emigration fact and add the arrival date and ship in Notes, as per the attached screen shot.
(If it was an Emigration, that is. You can use a similar method for Transportation, but you will have to create a Custom Fact.)

I treat occupations in a similar way. Enter Occupation as 'labourer" and reports show "...he was a labourer...".
