Re: Second screen display problem

Thanks for the replies.

I am not good at updating systems things. I think (!) I updated a driver, but it didn't help.

I know how to fix/rearrange the screen. When I get too annoyed, I shall go to a local computer shop.

Thanks again -

Second screen display problem

My configuration is a laptop - Lenovo Thinkpad with a Samsung screen attached. In order to see a lot of data at once I usually run FH on the attached screen. When moving from tab to tab on the main screen (main tab then facts tab) the following happens: Capture.JPG To fix it I move the 3 little dots...

Re: Questions from TMG Refugee

Mike -

I didn't know about customizing the facts tab. Thank you for the instructions. That is just what I needed.
The width of the columns didn't matter, it was the data in the columns.

I will start a new thread about the screen format - I do have problems.

Thanks - Linda

As you can see the first occupationWork shows the note. However the Military, the next occupatioinWork and the CauseDeathMemo do not show. You can click on a fact to see the note, but I can't see them all. I must go to the notes tab

Re: Questions from TMG Refugee

In reply to Carl's point nbr 1 - about the person view showing all facts - The fact's tab shows most of the information - however one needs to click on the Notes tab to find notes about the fact - and that is where important information is displayed. It would be much easier to have all the info abou...

Re: Standard name

Thanks for all the replys!

Names are definitely a challenge. Thank...

Re: Standard name

Thanks for the replies. The index I am talking about in FH is the records window. I use an online system, Second Site, which when I transition to FH I will be using GedSite - a website builder from John Cardinal. That system has an index of everyone on the site. I don't think in FH you can search by...

Standard name

In TMG I have a name tag that is a standardized name. For example - Sargent can be spelled many ways, including Serjeant. For Peter Serjeant I have another name tag called custom-name, which is Peter Sargent. I have the name tag set not to print, but it is used in indexes, including an online system...

change status of fact type

I would like to change the status of some facts - change the status to disabled. I don't see how to do this. These are facts that I do not intend to use, that I will never use. Most are in the standard set and cannot be deleted.

Thanks for the help -

The name in the family box is not OK. How do I fix that? Actually I don't need the ID number, just Mr before the name.

Re: Plugin Export Gedcom File

Mike - Coming from TMG I have not understood attributes very well. I tried to export my data using attributes as much as possible, but the Occupation data did not fit well so I made it into an event. I never imagined that it would be OK to have the same name fact be either an attribute or an event. ...

It is a fact, a custom fact, and the status is checked. There is also something else called Occupation. However, this is an attribute. It is in ...

Re: Sentence different from property box & report

Mike -

Thanks, it worked. But not until I fiddled with the report options, which you had mentioned. I guess the checkbox 'include event attr/notes' means those notes that are not identified in the sentence templates.

Thank you - this solves lots of problems.

I would do it myself, except that there is no way to export 'as an infant' to the death age field which means I would have to post-process,...

Hi Mike - It works great. I didn't realize I had so many 'non-conforming' deaths. And then I realized they were all from my TMG event DeathInfant. I changed those to death in TMG and put 'as an infant' in the memo field in TMG. I will go through my data and figure that out. But in the future, when I...

Re: Importing from TMG death of a baby

Mike - TMG does not have an 'age' field in the death tag (or in any other tag). It's much easier for the computer to calculate the age. Therefore I changed the FH standard death tag to calculate the age, which shows up in years - I am happy with that. Under 1 year old the age is 0. I am not happy wi...
