Re: Death & Burial entries

One way to do this is to create a source for the certificate and then turn on Automatic Source Citations with that new source as the input record and then add it to the Burial and Death facts. Otherwise you can select more than one fact in the facts dropdown list with click and ctrl / shift click on...

Re: Marking and connecting DNA relatives

I do a surname study and have several hundred unconnected trees in one master FH project. It is easy to add an 'unconnected' individual just go to Add > Unrelated Individual and add the person then build their tree backwards and add to it in the normal way. When you get to the common ancestor you ju...

Re: Review Folder Permissions Plugin Snippet

Mike I have in fact set it to E:\ for the projects folder. I have other mapped folders on my Mac HDD for other Windows apps to access. It seems as though it is FH that is reporting the location \\VBOXSVR\Family_Historian_Projects as that is what is set in the Project Window. I have now set it to E:\...

Re: Review Folder Permissions Plugin Snippet

@Mike

My Mac folders are mapped drives so do have a Windows drive letter assigned. It seems as though your plugin seems to be ignoring the mapped letter and actually looking at share folder structure. Could you swap it to look at drive letters?

Mervyn Thanks for that information. I hadn't done any digging into the reasons.

A couple of interesting things. The new one failed to install on the VM and overwrite the old version came up with unable to install. I manually deleted the old one and installed the new one fine. Still an issue though.

Re: Multi media files

I attach as 11 separate images to one source. However, with a good image editing programme they could be combined into one image. Load the first one and then increase the canvas size to 11 times its current width or height whichever you prefer and then drop each of the other images into it. The save...

Re: Crossover/PlayonMac/Linux winhttp download problem

I have given up with Codeweavers, unfortunately I only renewed my licence on 25th of last month. Their support is next to useless for anything but the simplest problem. If it wasn't for the coexistence issue of FH and AS I would get my money back and stick with POM.

Re: Crossover/PlayonMac/Linux winhttp download problem

@Mike

Just a thought what process does FH itself use for updates? The reason for asking is that Crossover copes happily with updating versions of FH say from 6.2.x to 6.2.7. Why can't plugins use the same method and not use winhttp.

Still working with Codeweavers about the winhttp issue though.
