The Next Generation Export

Hello, I use the TNG website to display my FH database, the last time I did an export from FH6 to TNG was about 2 years ago. As I have family event coming up and many changes to my FH data (including upgrading to FH Ver 7), I thought I go through the process of utililising Mike T's plugin and run an...

Re: Testing Ancestral Sources v7.5.2

I have started to look at converting England Census Sources for 1841, all of these have been created through older versions of AS. It gives me the opportunity to tighten up my links and references at the same time (as I have been a bit lazy in the past). A couple of things come to mind...... When I ...

Re: Testing Ancestral Sources v7.5.2

Thank you very much for your efforts on AS Nick, quite frankly over the years that I have been using AS to help structure the input of all the main events in my database, it has been a godsend. I assume that one can just do the conversion from text to RTF as a separate process to converting from Gen...

Re: Help with Diagram Box Text

Hello again Mike These are my current Box Diagram Expressions relating to Marriage and Relationships. I do have Marriage Icons with numbers i.e. Mr1-Mr4, I did actually put them in and it just replaced the two Mr icons showing against Louisa with Mr2 and Mr4, a bit like the relationship Icons R2 and...

Re: Help with Diagram Box Text

Ok Mike, I seemed to have grasped the wrong end of the stick by using Edit Text Scheme. I have re-entered the information as before and I now have this: Marriage example3.jpg My original icon of Mr shows twice for Louisa which is correct. If we could either get the two Mr icons to show one Mr2 and t...

Hello again and sorry to prolong the pain! I made a decision to keep my Marriage Cert and Marriage Record expressions in the Diagram Boxes as they were (so far that is).

Fascinating thread...... so I tried it out with success!! Thanks. Two questions come from this though on my part. 1) I have an ancestor who was married twice and had a child in between the marriages, so in effect, unmarried. So now I have the two marriage dates showing in the Diagram box, plus anoth...

Just picked up on this. That's something else that Irfanview can do. Use Options > Multipage images > Create multipage PDF. (You may need to download the Irfanview plugin for that if you haven't already got it). [/b] I have IrfanView 4.6 up to date and am trying to use the option above, but it doesn...

Re: Source and Citation Text to Source Rich Text & Tables

Thanks you very much Mike and Helen for your input. I'm probably not the only FH user that likes trying out the new features of an upgraded product. Isn't that why the product is upgraded in the first place? (apart from bug fixes of course). For the moment, I will keep using AS for all the standard ...

Thank you Helen, That was quick! Much appreciated, I have not used the DEA's for all my sources, I still use the very good AS programs as well for the standard items, but where I find the DEA's very good is for things like Paper Clippings, and Wills etc, the non standard stuff. Very good idea. Howev...

Re: Text from Source Missing

Thank you for the feedback Helen,

I will start with the BMD Births and Deaths with the Civil Registration Index DEA as they work fine. I'll wait for the update to the Marriages DEA. Perhaps you could let me know when you have had time to update it please?

Many thanks,

Re: A Slight Laptop Problem

It is important to understand that FH uses the Windows Registry for many settings instead of the ProgramData folder. Users have complained about the way settings are all over the place but not much as improved. The core standard Diagram Options and thus Box Conditions for Icons are saved in the Wind...
