Re: My Heritage hints not working

Now FMP isn't working either! I've reported it to CP.

Re: Parish Marriages England 1837-

Thank you, Nick, I've changed the template to get the witnesses shown in the text. I'm not so concerned about the entry number box as I hadn't seen it before. Is there a way of showing the county/state for the marriage in the text box as I enter it on the AS but it never seems to appear in the auto-...

Re: Parish Marriages England 1837-

I noticed that if I use Generic marriage R similarly the Generic marriage data only, it enters the witnesses but not the spouse's father's name? In the 1837 Parish auto text, there is a space for the entry number, presumably from the marriage record but there isn't a box on the AS plug in to enter t...

Re: Parish Marriages England 1837-

I don't think it's anything to do with the tweak that brought witnesses to the top of the list. It looks like the witnesses have not been included in the Auto text R that I used?

Parish Marriages England 1837-

I used AS to show a marriage, added all the details but when I used Auto Default R text, the witnesses didn't appear and I had to add them manually?

My Heritage hints not working

Since the update to FH7 I keep getting a pop up saying the cache is full, see attached.

Re: Method 1 or 2

Is there an easier way, Nick, of using the primary, secondary, etc, comments in the overall FH7 records, not just individual censuses, etc?

Re: Backing up settings

The problems I had with some of the new features have been resolved by you and the team here so I believe I'll be OK with FH7 particularly as I don't use diagrams and such like.

Re: Backing up settings

Exactly Mike, thank you, I'll make a new folder for FH7 settings but I can't see why I would wish to keep the previous settings for FH6 as if I migrate to another pc in the future I'll surely continue with FH7?

Re: Method 1 or 2

Thank you Nick, seems a very good explanation and the Default R looks much nicer than the previous one from FH6 so I'll go with it.

Re: Method 1 or 2

A further problem seems to be that when I save the AS and it returns me to FH7, in the case of a census for a family shows each individual at that place, date, etc, but used to allow me to add whether it was a primary, secondary, etc, fact especially in the cases of children's births but it doesn't ...

Method 1 or 2

The new version of AS -Data Entry 1, has further confused me as I don't remember if I was using Method 1 or 2 in the previous versions on FH6. The Auto text now has 2 options and I'm again unsure which is best to use or why? Why does the text entry also show in the notes, hopefully, it doesn't appea...

Backing up settings

After the installation of FH7 it seemed a good idea, after making various amendments as discussed on here, to back up the FH settings. However, I kept getting messages saying the previous folders were out of date and would I like to keep them or delete them? Bit of a dilemma!

Yes, Mike, I seem to remember having that same problem with FH6 that is why I used the note box. Pity CP didn't fix that.

Re: Publishing report

Thank you, Mike, that worked and I tried 'where within source' but it only shows 'volume' and not 'page' as it seems unable to paste the 2 lines that I copied?

Re: Property window and citations

I am using the cog at the top of the property and citation boxes, I press 'customise property box' and I get individual at top and 2 panes but the left-hand pane doesn't say what Helen said so I can't move it to the RHS?

Publishing report

When I enter a source/citation such as a birth, I enter in the note, the volume and page number of the GRO record or fhl number if for FSO. However, when I see the preview of the published report the numbers are not shown only the GRO or FSO text? Is there a way around this as people reading a repor...

Re: Saving a new Citation

I agree with the OP especially being an 'old codger' and being a bit of a technophobe, it's very off-putting not having a save button. Initial use frightened me! Also, the fact that there are now 3 types of additions to make a source is of concern as not having had that choice with FH6 I didn't know...

Re: FH7 Property Box

Gardengirl exactly I'd like the yellow bit next to the property box not below it but cannot see the option to change it to what I had on FH6, the old adage 'if it ain't broke don't mend it' comes to mind! I've tried the 'floating option' but all that does is make the focus window go across the whole...
