Re: Emigration Sentence template

I have reported the inconsistency as a bug.

I have also registered the issue that there should be no Override Templates included at installation, and that if an override is in use, it should be highlighted clearly on the relevant screen.

Re: Emigration Sentence template

Sorry, but you are conflating the two problems here. The first point is related to the use of Short place name for the two places in the Emigration fact. You have confirmed that the bug report should be extended to confirm the issue in the overide for the principal fact. I will report that as well. ...

Re: Emigration Sentence template

Just spotted another variation.

I had reset to Installation settings on the Fact Definition screen. If you reset it here, the override returns.

If you reset it from the Edit Role - Advanced Features as Lorna did, it does not.

Re: Emigration Sentence template

I have not used a Witness for emigration either. In fact I was on the point of deleting the Witness Role while I was experimenting with it.

Still puzzled why it would be set anyway?

Re: Emigration Sentence template

As far as I can see also, the Solution outlined above for the Sentence Template is not working in the Fact Tab override template for the Principal. E migrated <from {%FACT.PLAC:SHORT%}> <to {%CUR_PRIN.EMIG._PLAC:SHORT%}> <with {other=principal,emigrant}> in my example this is just generating "Emigra...

Re: Emigration Sentence template

I have a question that is not directly related to what has gone before on this thread, but heavily linked. As one part of this exercise, I reset the Fact Definition to Installation Settings. I discovered that the deault installation settings use the following for a Witness Sentence {individual} emig...

Re: Emigration Sentence template

Thank you that works now.

I do have a small number with multiple emigrations so I'll keep an eye out for this.

I'll file a report to Calico in the morning.

Great help.

Hope you and others in the group are all well

Re: Emigration Sentence template

Hi Mike

Thanks as usual for the prompt help.

I'm getting it to work for {_place}, but {_place2} is not working for me.

I pasted it in to make sure I wasn't making a mistake, but I cannot make it work.

Re: Single page PDF problems

Thanks again

Yes, moving the tree to fit in into one page worked perfectly.

But having installed the Nova Printer driver, you are right that is easier still.

Thanks.

Re: Fact Title Problem

Managed to get back to this issue. As I was heavily involved in the topic you linked to, I would have been disappointed if it was as simple as that. As far as I can see, it looks as it should do.

Fact Title Problem

I've ended up with an odd error and I can't see how to correct it (short of deleting the fact and re-adding it.) I entered a death using AS, and the husband was entered as a witness. However in his timeline, it is appearing as "Birth/Death of Wife Christina zzzzzz". Christina 1.jpg I can't remember ...

Re: Death Witness Role - Doctor

It has to be more than that. I had already tried removing the first {individual}. as that was my suspicion

But, if you take the bare bones example in my second post, if I remove the first code, I still get an error.

Re: Death Witness Role - Doctor

My next test was to simplify the whole thing, and start with <{individual's}> on its own. That worked. I then added {role=doctor}. That worked. I then copied and pasted both working codes, removed the middle <> and I get an error.

Is there something special about the Death Witness Role for Doctor. I've started with the following code {individual} died <of a {cause},> {date} <at {address}> {place} {age}.< {individual's} doctor was {role=doctor}. > This generates a sentence error as follows Death dr 1.jpg If I then change to {i...

Re: Scottish Birth Certificate Fact Creation

OK, like all that.

I've added a couple of words in the last para. I suspect most users will not have looked at that screen in AS, so just making clear it is an AS option, as the terms are FH ones.

Almost there?

Re: Scottish Birth Certificate Fact Creation

I think it needs two headings at Headline Level 2. Agreed (and done). Possibly there should be a single Define Fact Witness Role heading to avoid repeating essentially the same instructions and include the Facts Tab Format advice. I did consider that, I also considered whether a totally new page sh...
