Re: Witness notes

Thank you for this dicussion - I too use Witness Notes extensively and while I don't often print, I do value the sentences appearing in the Property Window when the Witnessed fact is selected. As the discussion started with Wills, you may be interested to know that I have also created a custom Wills...

Focus Window Abbreviations

For the main couple or individual in the focus window: is there a way to customise the abbreviations for Baptized and Buried? Currently they are showing Bapt'd and Buried. The children show bap. and bur. I have looked through the Tools, Fact Types options and cannot seem to find an option that chang...

Re: Newspapers fact

I too have a Newspaper fact and have made a sentence: {individual} is mentioned in the newspaper {date} {place} : {note}. The Note field I use for a summary eg Failure to pay rates, and I put the full text of the article in the source text. I've found that it (so far) has covered all instances.

Re: Narrative Descendants by Generation Report

Thanks Mike. I have customised my sentences to remove the name of he/she aspect because I feel that those are redundant aspects so I guess I have shot myself in the foot so to speak. Any suggestions as to a work around?

Re: Understanding FH Queries

Thank you to those who gave me guidelines on how to remove my empty Died facts - like many others I am sure, I do prefer not have have calculated births and deaths if I actually have baptisms and burials and are never likely to have correct birth and death dates.

Re: Quick Child/Family Snapshot

Thanks so much for putting time and effort into this one Mike - its already very useful to me.
For the future, if both possible and desirable for others... can the individuals shown be clickable ie. click or double click changes the property window to these individuals?

kind regards

Re: Extra Windows

Thank you Trevor - yes I have, but for me its not ideal. I hate having to flip back and forth between windows becuase I cannot see all I want to at once - in the diagrams my large families take the whole width of the screen and its back to the mouse all the time to get into editing mode.

Re: Extra Windows

Mike - that plugin sounds ideal.

I find that FH is very mouse orientated - often my tab and enter ...

Re: Focus Window display of Spouses of children & siblings

Indeed, I was not suggesting it be removed, and I have found the option you mentioned thank you Mike. I like to have a lot of windows open at one time and sometimes there just is not enough room to see what I want to see, when I want to see it. Hence the request.

That has been very useful - thank you. I am addicted to making my screens just so and although I was using the Data Reference Assistant I was getting the 'linked to other' errors and couldn't quite get there. Thank you again - I will continue fiddling.
