Re: Windows 10 build 2004

That's why I installed on just one device, though I realise some issues might be device specific.

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?

Re: Linked errors with new media

I frequently get this error after adding media. Am running Windows 10, FH6.2.7 on standard PC.

To resolve I view all the media links via the media record.

Re: Multiple Windows

First problem you would have is Autosave running in background. Each instance would overwrite the other.

Have you tried expanding the workspace across two monitors.

The attached Plugin is a way of listing the few broken links hidden amongst many valid links.
That is a really useful plugin, it's a pain having to search for the broken links amongst the rest. Although I usually find it amongst recently updated records!

Re: FT Analyzer is amazing

I also use FT Analyser but it's currently having an issue with how I record census references; I'm following that up on the appropriate forum.

I'm currently using the excellent Show Project Statistics Plugin. Working through the missing marriages😊

Re: FT Analyzer is amazing

Windows has an S mode which inhibits downloading apps not from the Microsoft Store - though it might not be relevant here.

The Restart option referred to by Mike is well worth knowing about. It is to a good alternative to the Shut down and reboot standard fix.

Do you know what the symbol after his name is that looks like a "y" with an "o" over it?

Thanks,

It's actually how they wrote 'the'.

Written as ye (with a reversed e) which was the old English thorn - the source of YE as in ye olde shoppe.

Re: Occupation - Scholar etc

In my head I was thinking of adults who'd left school decades ago, so were unlikely to be going back into education... Still even so, yes, as always, it's the info at that point in time. In my role as an Interviewer working for Office for National Statistics I regularly come across people who have ...

Re: Occupation - Scholar etc

I don't dispute that enumerators and respondents may not report exactly what is true on the ground! It's worth checking through an enumerators records to see how he tends to work. I prefer to record what's there and then note what I think might have actually been the case citing my reasoning in notes.

Re: Occupation - Scholar etc

I prefer to keep both Scholar and other occupations as recorded on each source. They act as anchors to record school admissions or promotions and pay rises (railway ancestors or career soldiers). Also changes of occupations as economic situations dictate. It also alerts me if a particular source sho...

Perhaps add a "test" suffix to the names, or add "test" image as the first preference instead of faces

I also do this. For example [] /[]/ for someone redacted in the 39 register. Context is given by the source citation

It is even better than that, the drop down goes up to 2019, additional information needs to be supplied for events in last 50 year to order. At least the index entries are visible.
