Import from FTM - UDFs .MAP, .MAP.LATI and .MAP.LONG

Hi, Importing from FTM 2017 I get a lot of UDFs as shown in the attached screenshot. 2017-12-10 (6).png I think that these are redundant and can be deleted. Does anyone see a problem with that? I expect to use Geo-coding from FH MAP ALL PLACES or the plugin MAP LIFE FACTS ( may be both). I need to w...

Re: Birth settings - method 1: minor caption error?

HI Mike, Thank you for that suggestion. That is absolutely something I will need to do when I get to the stage of synchronising desktop with laptop. At the moment I am working through the various issues with importing my FTM 2017 tree into FH 6.2.5. FH handles the import from the Gedcom VERY WELL. S...

Birth settings - method 1: minor caption error?

Hi, Re this screenshot
2017-12-10 (1).png
2017-12-10 (1).png (34.95 KiB) Viewed 1364 times
I was looking to amend the Title showing in the top part of the screenshot. Removing ({ADDR}) achieves what I want.

Should the caption "Birth Method 1 Short Title Template" omit the word short?

Regards

Re: Census Date Check

Thank you Mike, that worked very well. I like the way the FH had updated the results set once I had identified and entered the missing data.

Now to continue working thru the tutorials.

Re: Census Date Check

Thank you Mike, that technique worked a treat on the last two items shown in this screen capture:

I'm not sure how to handle the items where the place name is blank as shown. Do you have a solution?

Census Date Check

I have just run the Census Date Check in Ancestral Sources and it's come up with a short list of unrecognised items.

How do I find the individual facts so I can review them?

TIA Regards

Re: Random Spaces introduced into TEXT imported from FTM

Hi,

I just revisited the advice for importing from FTM Import from Family Tree Maker (FTM) in the knowledge base.

It's brilliant that this has been updated to take account of changes based on FTM 2017. This is a great encouragement to using FH.


Thanks

Re: Using Excel VBA to convert from lumped to split sources

Hi Mark, Thanks for your reply and kind offer to process my Gedcom. I won't take you up on this at the moment as I really need to work out what I want to achieve. The main problem I see with the lumped source is how in Gedcom it leads to multiple copies of the citation data. There's quite a lot in t...

Re: Random Spaces introduced into TEXT imported from FTM

Hi Mike, I am sorry, I have created confusion; which started by saying 'Random Spaces' - I should have said 'Unwanted Spaces'. To restate the issue: I created a Gedcom from my project file FTM 2017 build 1343. This included lines such as: 4 TEXT COOPER David John Alan (32) bachelor married KENNEDY f...

Re: Using Excel VBA to convert from lumped to split sources

Hi Mark,

I have exactly this problem importing a Gedcom from FTM 2017. Having worked with Lumped Sources, looks like I need to convert to split sources.

Would your code work in Open Office? And would you be able to share it?

Regards

Re: Random Spaces introduced into TEXT imported from FTM

Hi Mike, Thanks again, here is a cut and paste of a line that gives rise to an additional space. I believe it's not a double space that's the problem but a non-printing character. 4 TEXT COOPER John Gordon (27) bachelor married DAVEY Heather Mary (23) spins 5 CONC ter by licence.

Re: Random Spaces introduced into TEXT imported from FTM

Hi Mike, Thank you for your continued support. I did use the File > Project Window > New Project > Import a GEDCOM file method to import the gedcom. The Check for word-wrapping errors window definitely did not appear as I expected it to. Is this a change in FH 6.2.5 I wonder? The spaces are not rand...

Re: Random Spaces introduced into TEXT imported from FTM

Hi Mike, Thank you for your welcome. I had already studied the knowledge base item and post you suggested, before posting. The check word wrap dialog did not appear when I imported the Gedcom from FTM. Regarding the lumped/split source issue I really meant to echo what Mark had posted; haven't decid...

Random Spaces introduced into TEXT imported from FTM

Hi There,

Have imported a gedcom produced by FTM 2017 build 1343 into FM 6.2.5

The import worked well, however there are random spaces introduced into the TEXT lines.

Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Also having lumped sources need to consider how to split these.
