Re: Multifact

Tools > Fact Types >Chooe each custom fact set in turn and count the number of fact definitions in each set... it's the number of fact definitions that matters, not the number of facts of each type.

Also, do you use a lot of "non-English" characters?

Re: Multifact

OK, that's code executed when reading all your fact files...

How many custom fact sets do you have, and how many facts in each?

Colin, I assume because you'd have said otherwise that you're using Windows? What version?

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

I'd prefer to recommend a "standard" if possible (as far as Semantic Versioning is a standard -- although it's very widely used). Plus, even the simplest plugins need bug fixes -- in fact, that's probably all they ever get. I've modified the wording to suggest it's optional but recommended. For stuf...

Re: Linking to an MS Word doc

Another option for publishing or sharing such a document with somebody who does not have Word installed is to convert it to a (read-only) PDF. Most people have the ability to read PDFs.

Mike, I've updated Knowledge Base > Version Control And File Naming Advice if you'd like to take a look -- I modified the section on Git to point to the current websites, but you might want to check that you're happy with it.

davidf, I'm going to wait to see what materialises with FH7 . The plugin store does allow you to specify what FH versions are compatible; and most plugins (including mine) additionally test that minimum requirements are met, so that if somebody inadvertently downloads a plugin they can't run they ge...

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

The version did change from 2.0 to 2.0.1 (to account for the minor change to the zipfile extraction). The file was Research Planner, but the Plugin page name was Research Planner Version 2.

Re: Research Planner -- what templates do you use?

Mike, I think KayCee is asking about what people construct templates for , not how they construct them, and that's an excellent question. I have a set of obvious template -- Find Birth Registration; Find Burial; Find 1851 Census -- that sort of thing. And I have some less obvious (perhaps) templates...

Re: Narrative Report Heading how to change it?

Sheena, no you don't do the editing within the report -- you go back and fix it in the original data and then regenerate the report. If you screen is large enough, you can tile the windows **inside** FH to have the report open alongside the Focus window or the Record Window and Property Box to make ...

I assume you're using the trial version of FH6? So you can't try out plugins. There's a plugin Export Gedcom File which has a RootsMagic set of settings -- the help is here which might give you some clues, and I expect Mike Tate will be along to give more advice as he's our specialist on importing a...

"To explain the 1937 birthday you need a multi-layered citation showing the chain of evidence." No, you don't.

Adding "sentence" like construction to producing citations and other entries. And I'm certain the developers are familiar with the conce...

Yes, David, but there are different places you can display different media -- in a report, you can choose to have the Fact Media in a different place from Source or Citation Media -- or to display one type but not the other.
