Re: Moving in Ancestors view

Sorry Mike I didn't mean the orientation didn't work in all relatives I meant moving up and down the trees with the direction arrows didn't work. If you start at yourself say and move up the tree it doesn't stay with your family (paternal) and then when you try to come back down it can get trapped i...

Re: Moving in Ancestors view

The Ancestors Diagram works perfectly once I change the orientation run Right-Left (Bit counter intuitive, as I would call this Left-Right :roll: ). I only realised I could do this reading a computer magazine today, so someone obviously knew I was going to ask this question and helpfully wrote an ar...

Re: Moving in Ancestors view

Peter Does that mean no there isn't a way to do it in FH? FTM has the same restrictions of how many generations are shown on screen (up to 5), it just moves to the next generation up if you keep pressing the right arrow. I am hoping there is a way to do it although with no answers so far I am not ho...

Moving in Ancestors view

Hi I have just noticed this and don't know why I haven't noticed it before as I used to use this feature all the time when I used FTM. When I have my family tree in Ancestors (Pedigree view) in the Focus Window I can't move about the tree using the arrow keys, yes I can move about what is on the scr...

Trevor Some advice I was given by (I think) Mike Tate was that you can change the orientation of the property box and it works well on a laptop. You can have the box and source pane side by side instead of on top of each other. Helen I don't really think that there is that much wrong with how FH6 wo...

FH7 Looks?

I know that Calico Pie haven't really said anything about FH7 since they first announced it at Roots Tech. My question to anyone who was at the demonstration, what does FH7 look like? Has it been given a more modern make over for 2020 or is it just the same as FH6 in looks. I am a fan of FH but have...

Re: FH6.2 will not open

For those using Windows 10, don't forget you can remove your anti-virus and use Windows Defender which is free and integrated into Windows Security. It is now as good, if not better than most anti-virus software (especially free) and doing this will allow you to rule out if your problem lies with th...

I have to say a simple to-do list would be nice, but I have now looked at the Named Lists recommended to me on here and have to say that between them and a separate Family Tree- Outlook To-do list are more than enough for me. I can live with working this way if no Task/to-do list ever appeared.

But there are significant costs both for VMWare Fusion (£70+) and Windows 10 (£100+) on top of the FH licence.
Wow, almost cheaper buying a Windows laptop just to run FH.
