Privacy brackets in places

From reading different posts I thought that a place, for example, San Diego County, California, [[USA]] would hide the USA in reports. However, in the individual narrative I get San Diego County, California, [[USA]] where I was hoping for San Diego County, California. I've looked for an option but n...

Re: Give witnesses their own fact error

Got myself straightened out. I did know about reversing changes, etc. And I had a backup. The problem was I've been messing around for so long that I had a lot of backups from the same day, and it took a while to figure out which one was the one I wanted. Anyway, I figured it out and ran the plugin ...

Re: Rootsmagic->Family Historian

I'm making notes of all of these things as I discover them, perhaps in a week or two I'll summarize what I've discovered and post it in some rational fashion so that the KB can be updated for other RM to FH folks. This really is that most surprising of things - a software package that gets MORE ama...

Re: Give witnesses their own fact error

I've made enough backups and projects to have myself confused. I got this plugin (1.3.2) to work once, and liked it. It seemed like it missed some of my census facts and roles but they are pretty messed up right now (too many similar facts and roles) and I may just be confused. I need to clean thing...

Re: Give witnesses their own fact error

It works great. Thank you! One thought, and it's personal preference. Other people may have different preferences. I like that you put a notation in the Note field as to if they were a principal or witness. But it would be nice if it were in privacy brackets as I print my notes. However, its easy en...

Give witnesses their own fact error

I'm running the "Give Witnesses Their Own Facts Plugin". I get the following error: Screenshot 2021-01-13 122917.png . My census records are custom census(family) facts with roles. I have looked at Charles Atkinson and the parent record and see no issues. I ran it with a different witnessed fact and...

Re: Removed ending period from Fact Note

Thank you! Again. Now that you ask, I need to investigate more. My imported data all contains a period at the end of every note sentence. I made custom fact definitions that include the note field at the end. I was ending up with 2 periods at the end of my sentences if there was a note. Now that I'm...

Removed ending period from Fact Note

Due to an import I would like to remove the last period in a fact note for every fact note. Only the last one. I'm still trying to get the hang of query's and LUA strings. Is there a way to do this in mass? FH7.

Thanks,
Jackie

I'm using the Rearrange Address Place and Parts plugin to combine the Address parts with the place parts. I'm using 7 place parts and right justified them so the first 3 places were blank. Then I transferred by (3) Address parts to those blank fields. It worked except many, not all of my part 1 addr...

Re: Move data from one field to another in same fact

Is your custom Alternate Birth fact an Event or an Attribute ? It is an attribute, but the data from my import put the various dates in the date field. As it turns out, I only had a few of them done, so I put them back as separate alternate birth facts for now for consistency. I have a lot of other...

Re: Move data from one field to another in same fact

Hate to be so simplistic but, out of curiosity, why not use the standard 'btw 1950 and 1953' which isn't a date phrase so produces 'was born between 1950 and 1953' Mervyn I select the birth date I think is best for the birth fact. I have some where the possible alternate births might be 1950, 1953,...

Re: Source templates and capitalization

I wonder if you entered Database and Images in Title case (Capitalization means entirely in CAPITALS) which would be correct for Bibliography, you could then use the =ToLower(...) function in the Footnote, but I have not tried that. Thanks Mike. That worked. {=ToLower(%SOUR._FIELD[2]%)} Jackie

I'm creating source templates. I have a field called {Type} that is input as database and images. This works fine in my footnote. But in my Bibliography I would like it to say Database and images.

Is there a plugin or query that will let me move the data in one field to a different one within the same fact? I have an Alternate birth fact: {individual} may also have been born {value}< {date}>< {place}. Sometimes I want an actual date, but sometimes I want a phrase such as 'in 1950, 1951 or 195...

Re: Rootsmagic->Family Historian

In general, my import from RM didn't go too badly. But almost every fact and source I use is custom, so I have a lot of work to do. Facts won't take an enormous about of time as I've gotten pretty decent at writing sentences in FH7. I'm debating about my sources. They were templated in RM and I love...

I read somewhere that the latest RM8 uses a different database structure from RM7 and so maybe RMTRIX won't work.
Does anyone know for sure?
Tom recently talked about it and it sounds like many queries are not going to work. I assumed she was using RM7, but assuming is rarely a good thing to do.
