Re: Convert citation note to source note?

Yes each source only has exactly one citation note. So are you saying that each Source record only has one Citation? i.e. When you look at the Source record in the Records Window Sources tab its Links column value is 1 . If that is true then there is only one instance of a Citation-specific Note to...

Re: Convert citation note to source note?

The only way to achieve that is with a custom plugin that moves each Citation-specific Note to its linked Source record Note. It will have to avoid duplicating the same URL in the Source record Note and also allow for multiple different URL. Alternatively, the Source records could be redefined to in...

Re: Shared fact

The complication is that Name Only Fact Witnesses use the _SHAN tag instead of _SHAR . They are two different types of field: _SHAN is a text field holding the Name Only text. _SHAR holds a pointer to an Individual record. So your conditional expression will have to get even longer to cater for all ...

Re: Regenerate pool numbers

It is not clear what you are asking for. The Relationship Pool numbers are allocated entirely automatically by FH and always have. You have no control over how they are generated. Typically, the largest group of related Individuals form Relationship Pool number 1. But after that, there seems no obvi...

Re: Birth registration witness

Sorry, I overlooked the Name Only scenario. :oops:
Add the following expression immediately after the expression I provided.
{=TextIf(%FACT._SHAN.ROLE%="Informant",Text(" registered by ".%FACT._SHAN%))}

The complexity is that Name Only witnesses use _SHAN instead of _SHAR.
