Users shouldn't have to worry about this stuff, it's the programmers job to hide this from them.

Re: Record Title Format in Source Definition Template

I have just realised I can create new field definitions so to get a source title starting with yyyymmdd I need to create three new fields {year} as a date {month} as an enum (cannot treat as date as will give errors and will get 0001 if entering 01) {day} as an enum (ditto) then use the expression <...

Re: Record Title Format in Source Definition Template

Thank you Kevin for your reply. What I am looking for is the ability to construct the Source title in the format I want - in AS one can use the following {YEAR}{DATE.MONTH.NUM2}{DATE.DAY2} Census @ {PLACE} {PLACE.SHORT}: {REF} - {KEYPERSON.GN} {KEYPERSON.SN.CAPS} this gets near to what I want. The S...

Record Title Format in Source Definition Template

I would like my source titles to follow my standard format:
Untitled.jpg
Untitled.jpg (133.3 KiB) Viewed 274 times
I can only find {date} and {place} in the template dialog which won't reproduce my preferred layout, which I can achieve using AS.

Is there a method I have missed in FH7 - other than manual amendment?

Re: High cost of upgrade

I do agree with GeneSniper. On the other hand with hindsight I would have chosen different lottery numbers. At the end of the day it's not a big sum, just momentarily annoying. I'll be updating soon just tidying up the file first.

Re: On the fence FH7

Hi Adrian, What you said almost reinforces my point...........When a new feature is included in an update it has probably come from a pre-existing user wish list. The new Source / Citation option is probably very good in what it intends to achieve (and I would really like to use it!). But if users ...

Excellent suggestion, I'm holding back on updating to v7 as switching to a new computer, and tidying up my v6 files. It would be good to see any suggestions on preparatory work to complete before upgrading to v7

One trick I use to get rid of unwanted formatting when copying and pasting is to paste into a plain text file in notepad and copy on from there.

Re: Information re a historic Birth Certificate application.

Does the certificate have the date it was purchased on? (Ones I have purchased do). If so does the date give any pointers as to who or why it was purchased? Which people were around or what events were taking place?

Re: A visual marker for a 'provisional' relative

I use the Media tab in this way. I have images for brick walls, dna links, single child families, people with no known offspring, singletons and question marks. I don't have images of many of my ancestors so it provides a useful at a glance state of a family group.

I do use flags, but to be honest the only consistency is that derived by using AS. I would miss that but it is not a deal breaker 😊

Re: Is it still possible to order a death certificate as a PDF??

Yes, within limits. I usually check the reference by doing an online search. A button appears allowing you to order a pdf. I've ordered several in the last few weeks. They take about a week to be ready to download.

Windows 10 build 2004

I just updated one of my computers to the latest update - billed as 2004. FH seems to run OK, tried a few plugins also. It take several hours to install this update:(

Any ideas of what to test?
