Fact Text appearing in Reports

i have just looked at a "Record Detail - Individuals" Report and spotted an unusual (to me) occurrence. Where the Residence Fact used the default Text, {date} {individual} lived {place} <with {other=resident}> , the Record Detail showed Date, Place, Address, Source, Multimedia Object. Where I had us...

Correct, Mike. It was an old posting which I looked for in my postings but didn't find, possibly by not entering the right Search criteria.

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...".

Stupid me! I missed the Ancestor query and tried to use the different Relative queries.

I have also incorporated the refinements suggested by Mike.

Thanks again. (You would think that after 10 years I would have found that).
