Re: FT Analyzer

I have also been in contact with codeplex about 1939 register support.
I have sent them a small gedcom to help sort out the errors.
All my 1939 entries were done using AS so have exact date.
i am still waiting to hear back from Levva.

It will reorder all dated facts.

Re: Repeat census entries

I did ask Nick, very early on, would it be possible, instead of having the tick box on the plugin, to have two save options in AS.
One would be save & exit, the other would be save & continue.
I am forever forgetting to set the correct option when I run the plugin.

If you use AS to enter your data, it should automatically create the census source with the type "Census"

Re: TMG to FH import of Flags

Mike,
Thanks for the clarification.
I was on V4 when I last seriously looked at flag names, so the character limit may have been lower then.
I have greatly reduced my use of flags, and now tend to use them mainly to show "Not in 1911" etc to show that I have looked very hard, but not found.

Re: TMG to FH import of Flags

Mike, If the flag name is too long FH truncates it (The limit is about 7/8 characters) you can see the effect by opening the flags file in a text editor (Which can also be used to change the names) You can also see the internal flag names using the data assistant on a query. So, to Quote DonF's exam...

Re: Renaming Media Files

Thanks Mike,
That works exactly as I want it to, I just have to watch out for filenames that start with the year (Ie already tweaked), But I have re-arranged the media tab columns to see that.
Thanks for your help

Re: Renaming Media Files

Just got around to trying the modified plugin (No ID) and have noticed that the rename also replaces space and () with the _ character (Which windows does allow in filenames). Is there a way to stop this happening?

If you have not edited the auto text (After clicking Auto) then any changes made in the data entry will also update. If you have made changes to the auto generated text (Even just adding a space), and then add more data the auto generated text will NOT update. Just clicking Autotext and choosing the...

Re: Renaming Media Files

Jane, knowing little about plugins, but using them a lot, How would I modify your plugin to just rename files to be the same as the internal title (No record ID prefix)
My naming conventions have changed over the years, and as such I have several 1000 records to catch up on.

Enter all the information as a new entry (With new image) then delete the old source citations afterwards (AS will overwrite most of them, but birth . name and occupation citations will remain)

I had already done that for all three tests mike.
I now use symbolic links to point to a local thumbcache on each computer.
