Re: Using FH Family Trees on Independent Website

It may be worth looking at an alternative such as the SVG Family Tree Generator. This will import your gedcom and produce a tree in either HTML or SVG format for displaying on your website. There is an article on the Knowledgebase about this SVG Family-Tree Generator

Re: A Tale of Two Laptops, FH v6 & v7, & Crossover!

Yes that is correct if you uninstall one it can be re-used elsewhere. I took the inferece from the above that you could have 2 installs on one machine and because the Mac address was the same then they would be regarded by CP licence validation as one device. This is not the case they are regarded a...

Re: Make the installation of the pdf driver optional

As far as installation on PlayOnMac (POM) is concerned, I suspect that it locks up during/after the installation of NovaPDF and can't recover because the 'Windows Virtual Printer' can't be created. If you 'force quit' POM after lock up and then relaunch it you would probably find the everything has...

Re: A Tale of Two Laptops, FH v6 & v7, & Crossover!

Thanks Mervyn, that’s a useful clarification. Presumably the same applies to Wine under Linux? Somebody who has a spare second licence and wants to play with an emulator might be more inclined to go ahead if the host PC is effectively invisible. Mark This is not the case; during the beta testing, I...

Re: FH v7 and windows emulators WARNING

With the release of v7.0.3 of Family Historian the major issue with running FH on Crossover has been resolved in that reports now display correctly on the screen. I have successfully installed it on a Mac running Mojave and Crossover V20.04 in a 64bit Windows 7 bottle. I have yet to confirm that AS ...

[Wish List ref 570] Make the installation of the pdf driver optional

The inclusion of the Nova PDF driver is now unnecessary as Windows 10 includes a pdf printer driver. It also prevents users installing FH v7 in PlayOnMac.

It would therefore be beneficial to both Windows and Mac users to make the option of this driver optional.

Re: Import gedcom with photos from online url

Mike the media has not been imported into FH that is the issue.

The gedcom spec says that the Record ID can be constructed of any characters up to 22 characters long. I have come across some really weird ones with people sending me examples for testing against my Wordpress plugin.

Re: Problems Running FH V6 with Crossover on Mac

I think I may have a solution. Irene Remove the Morrison project from your iCloud sync.

That may well be...

This indicates that the file/folder is 'in the cloud' and needs downloading.

I would like to see a current screenshot of the appropriate folder in the Mac Finder not in the Crossover file manager.

In finder go to Documents/Family Historian Projects/Morrison.fh_data and see if the Morrison.ged file is there.

Report back on what you find as then we may well be able to help.

Re: Problems Running FH V6 with Crossover on Mac

If you used the standard My Documents folder then that is mapped to the Mac Documents folder so check to see if your project files and backups are stored...
