Re: Attach Media

Tatewise,

Thanks for pointing out the delay options for updates.
MS are not known for resolving issues very quickly so I think I will use the longer options.

Re: Attach Media

Folks, Tatewise you just pipped me to it. There are definitely issues with the 1909 upgrade on the MS Community web pages. Most appear to be related to the search function and file folders which seem to be similar to the issue I have. I have been going through various offered solutions like the repa...

Re: Attach Media

Folks I am or rather was doing much the same as yourselves. Instead of a Work in Progress folder I downloaded media to the default Download Folder, adjust, edit, crop etc and saved it still within Download folder. I then moved it to the relevant project media folder (drag and drop). More or less wha...

Re: Attach Media

Mike, What you are describing is exactly what it used to do. After moving media to relevant project media folder I could go add/from file and navigate to project media folder, search, double click on media file and it was added to the individual. If I repeated that process for another media item I d...

Re: Attach Media

Tatewise, Thanks for taking an interest in this issue. Any media I am trying to add into a project is always added to the appropriate media folder before hand. Screenshot 1 is what I get now, but manipulated by navigating the folders section, to as near as I can to show what I used to get. When goin...

Up Down Arrows in Facts.

Up Down Arrows in Facts. Using FH V6.7 I have gone through the advice shown in the Knowledge Base regarding the above but the arrows remain greyed out. They work perfectly well moving media items up or down but do not work for facts. All the facts in both these individuals are in date order. A Death...

Re: Copy and Paste fact to other individuals

Apologies I can see the blue dots referred to now but have never come across that situation before.
Could it be that I am trying to copy facts from one tree to another? Can this be done?

Copy and Paste fact to other individuals

I am using FH Ver 6.2.7. Until the other day I was able to copy a fact from one individuals record and paste it in to another individual within the same tree by using the Copy and Paste buttons. Now when I highlight a fact and click on the copy button I get this message "Only individual facts marked...

Re: How to use a To Do list

Following instructions on the list I have managed to create a To Do List which produces a report of BMD I need to find for all individuals that have an entry in the Facts. I have also a To Do Tasks which lets me select either Births, Marriages or Death seperately for all individuals. Both these repo...

Re: To Do List & Tasks Sorting

Mike,

I have followed all the details and it is working great. I also re-did the To Do Task query so that it also sorts on surname.
Thank for spotting the discrepancy in the 2nd (Buddy) Expression.

Many thanks for your excellent help.

Re: To Do List & Tasks Sorting

Hello Mike, Thanks for the reply and Q1 renaming the To Do tabs worked a treat and I now know Q3 is as it should be. However Q2 the sort by surname still has me baffled. This is what I am working from. The following Column Expressions work in FH V5 and above: • =FieldText(FactOwner(%FACT%,1,MALES_FI...

To Do List & Tasks Sorting

I have been using FH probably to probably only 10 or 20 % of its capability. Basically keying in data. I am now trying to use some of the items from downloads and links to help create lists of records that I can use to further my research. Provided I have detailed instructions I am happy to attempt ...

Marriage detail in Chart boxes

Is there a way to get the marriage details in the box of the direct family line? The marriage details seem to appear in either the direct line box or the spouse one at random whether male or female. I would like to see the descendants box contain the marriage details and not the spouse. I have looke...

In other Genealogical software I have used there is a way in which an action or to do list can be made. It can be created and used for both individuals and families to list the next steps to be taken. This is particularly useful in large family trees. I cannot find a way of doing this in FM. Is ther...

FH v 5.0.9 using Win 7. I am brand new to FH and have come across a few issues you may be able to advise on. 1. In the Facts tab is there a way to select a line of text and drag it to another area of the fact. Much the same as in Word or similar word processing packages. At the moment the only way I...
