Actually the Census option mentioned is used by many users. We are all extremely grateful.

Re: Link to Frame

As digital storage is cheap, maybe best not to crop images such as this - to show the context of the whole page.

I am playing devil's advocate - exploring what might be possible. Just discussing - that's all.

Re: FH and Cloudbooks

Thanks Mike. It should be possible to connect a decent sized screen. "At least 100Mb of hard disk space is required to store the program and accompanying files". So I would imagine that there should be enough room for FH and AS after the space that Windows 10 has occupied. The idea of Cloudbooks is ...

Re: Select Diagram Root

Many thanks Lorna. Like you one of the first things I did in v7 was to select that option. Then when I went to find it again I skipped "Enable One-Click Diagram Display from Toolbar" because that title did not immediately ring a bell.

Select Diagram Root

I have forgotten how to bypass the Select Diagram Root dialogue. In other words I like to select the root of a new diagram by selecting the individual in an existing diagram.

For over 18 years using FH, all of my Birth, Baptism, Marriage, Banns, Death, Burial and Census etc images are linked to the Individuals concerned. The images are my sources. Works fine and is simple and fast to implement. Icons in my diagrams denote which images I have and and have not found for ea...

Re: FH7 and Record Flags

My flags and icons are unaffected. But, Ancestral Sources v7 no longer supports flags. I only use AS for census entry. As a result I have changed all of my census flags to census expressions. That works fine, but in the case of the Canadian 1911 census etc I end up with two "11" icons. I have not fo...

Re: How Can I 'Flag' Something That I Can Easily See in Focus View?

I would suggest using "Has Flag" in Queries. Fast and effective to display a list of people that have been assigned a particular flag.

Re: Change from Flags to Expressions for Diagram Icons

Mike, It looks like your =ContainsText(%INDI.CENS[year=1911].PLAC%,"Canada") is picking up the "Canada" from "Calgary, Alberta, Canada" census place that Ancestral Sources creates alongside the date for that census "1 June 1911". I would like the expression to pick up the "Canada" from my Source Rec...

Re: Change from Flags to Expressions for Diagram Icons

Thanks Mike. =ContainsText(%INDI.CENS[year=1911].PLAC%,"Canada") does work but as the %INDI.CENS[year=1911]% expression is already in place I end up with two "11" icons. To answer your question, I have not used any expressions until the last couple of days. This is the first time I have tried to use...

Re: Change from Flags to Expressions for Diagram Icons

I am also Changing from Flags to Expressions for Diagram Icons.

%INDI.CENS[year=1911]% works just fine for my source and flag named "1911 Census".

What expression would I need for my source and flag named "1911 Canada Census" please?

Re: A visual marker for a 'provisional' relative

I use the In Progress flag for any person that is not absolutely proven to belong to a tree. The In Progress flag box is customised to show a heavy dotted outline, and the men at work icon clearly indicates work in progress. Use the Has Flag query to create a table of people that are in progress.
