Re: New Multifact plugin

I can Aero-snap the Plugin window to any corner, or put it anywhere on screen and alter its width, then when its height is auto-adjusted the top-left & top-right corners of the window stay put (providing it is using the function SetMinimumSize(dlg) that I posted earlier today. I don't see how mo...

Re: New Multifact plugin

Wrong extension again :o try .fh_lua

As I said, if I Aero-snap the Plugin window in Windows 10, the resizing only adjusts the height; the position & width stay put.

Re: New Multifact plugin

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by a docked window . Is that a Preferences setting I was unaware of? Do you mean Aero Snap to edge/corner of screen? If so, then in Windows 10, my Plugin window stays put and only its height changes. Changing the Individual(s) and Fact(s) from hbox to vbox is ...

Re: New Multifact plugin

In general, I agree. Was trying to get around the catch-22 of users with small screens getting controls into view. That is a height problem, and you are describing the position and width being upset. However, when I tried it the position is NOT changed, only the width changes and that can easily be ...

Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

May be the Product Registration option only comes with downloads bought from Calico Pie and not CD.
You can still subscribe to the Bulletins at https://www.family-historian.co.uk/community/family-historian-bulletins

Re: Cannot install Plugin problem

Might be worth checking that a new Plugin can be installed from Plugin Store, and that custom changes to say a Diagram &/or Report work correctly and synch across OneDrive.

To register you can use Help > Product Registration and also opt to receive FH Bulletins by Email.

That is a bit unusual, Colin. The FH Help > About Family Historian window never shows any licence codes. Near the top it may say Registered To: and give your name. Does it say Family Historian Version 6.2.7 at the very top? Presumably there are no Plugins listed in the Tools > Plugins window? How ha...

Re: Editing Profile

After opening the Viewing profile dialogue, use Edit Profile to reach Edit profile dialogue.
Enter one or two boxes, and then scroll down to bottom and click Submit, otherwise nothing gets saved.
Assuming that succeeds, repeat the process with the other boxes.

Re: Editing Profile

I'm not sure what you are saying.
Are they missing when you go to the Edit profile dialogue where they are shown in separate boxes, or when you go to the Viewing profile dialogue where they are listed near the top.
Perhaps a screenshot would clarify things.

Re: Multiple Private Notes in a query

Yes, that is perfectly true for Individual record level Note instances, and may well be a solution for Steve. But it is not a solution in the general case of Note instances attached to most other items, such as Facts , Citations , and other record types, mainly because they are difficult to create a...

Re: Deceased/retired Occupation

The Text From Source transcription should be a literal line by line copy of the original document. I like to arrange the layout using newlines and tabs and spaces to mimic the document as closely as is reasonably possible. Unfortunately, FH is limited to plain black & white text all in one font ...

Re: FH 32bit or 64bit?

FH is a 32-bit app, which is why it installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\ rather than C:\Program Files\ . I'd be surprised if there is not some suitable workaround as there are dozens of 32-bit apps for Windows. Just take a look at how many are installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\ on any Windows PC. ...

A Plugin could do something similar, but it would be more complex than Ron's example.

Re: Advice about my own FT

It is advisable to have just one 'extended' family tree. If you pursue the idea of putting your mother's ancestors in a separate tree, then you would also produce another ancestor tree for your G Mother, and another for your GG Mother, and so on for every other wife. If you go for separate trees, th...

Re: quick and easy relation (hopefully useful) plugin

Why do you believe that is better than Tools > How Related that gives multiple relationships and diagrams too?

It is possible to use the =Relationship() function in Queries, etc, with any two Individual records ~ no need to involve File Root.
