Mac Crossover Users update

If you are running Crossover on a Mac (I don't know about Linux) make sure you do the update to v18.5.0. I have been running the beta and it does not now crash Family Historian when you update a gedcom in Ancestral Sources that is open in FH. :D :D

Re: New Multifact plugin

@Mike

Is it worth adding a zip file of the pl folder to the KB? It may make it easier for people having similar issues.

Re: New Multifact plugin

SUCCESS

I zapped the pl folder in PlayOnMac and copied again from my VM and the plugin is now working fine without the change suggested by Helen earlier in this thread. :D

Does your pl folder have anything other than lua files in it? That is all that mine has and yet the error messages indicated that some dll's were missing.

Thanks for that but what is the edit required? There is no reference to C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\Plugins\ in the plugin code.

Re: New Multifact plugin

I have spent the afternoon trying to resolve this and can't. Those files do not exist in those locations on my other Mac that uses a virtual machine, so I am at a loss. Why is pl needed for this plugin whereas others don't seem to require it.

Re: New Multifact plugin

I will do some more digging this afternoon but it looks like one of the updates to Wine or the Mac may have messed with something.

I now get this error message.

Looking in the pl directory none of those files exist.

Re: New Multifact plugin

I don't have the Research facts plugin installed I removed it as I found I didn't use it.

This may be a Wine issue as I run on a Mac. But all the other plugins that I use run fine.

Re: New Multifact plugin

When I run the plugin I get a 'This plugin requires pl support...' Clicking OK I get the error message ' An error occurred in Download please try later.

Can I get pl support elsewhere and add it before running the plugin?

Re: PAF5 inport

There are a couple of options that I am aware of. 1: Download the free version of Ancestral Quest, it will read the PAF file and convert it to a Gedcom that you can upload to FH . 2: Download PAF from one of the many sites that have it available for download such as http://mpafug.org/PAFprograms.html

Re: Problems with extended families in AS

Don't forget in AS you can add unrelated individuals by clicking the icon of the person with a plus sign on it. I use this for servants etc when adding census entries as I have found on several occasions they later become spouses to people in my tree. If the role is not in the dropdown list you can ...

Re: Age at death

I have done some more digging and found the answer to my own question. Under the 'All' tab you can alter the age in the death fact but the only option is less than 1 day not the 4 hours shown in the records, presumably a limitation of the Gedcom format. There are more date options than normally show...

Age at death

Where does FH get its age at death from? The reason that I ask is the incorrect calculation of it. In the screenshot below the child died 4 hours after birth so was born and died on the same day so was only 4 hours old. As you can see FH has calculated this as 1 day and I would like to edit this but...

Re: Latest GEDCOM file changes

What happens when you click on Go To in Legacy? Does it just show you that persons record or does it show more than that? If it just shows the person record then it is the same as FH Updated in the Records window.

Re: FH Support Ticket System Feedback

I am of the opinion that this is a must. It isn't rocket science as if the bug is corrected then surely it is documented internally and it must be easy to pass that information on to us end users.
