Have you tried: Add Miscellaneous > Add Associated Person > Add Link to Existing Individual Record You can also add a Type and a Relationship field. This is only a one way association, so if you want a reverse association, you will have to repeat this operation for the other Individual Record . This...

Importing data with a GEDCOM - new FH user

Your edited GEDCOM tags are now recognisable to FH and appear in your Facts in default custom attribute style. However, in the Property Box the Sentence at the bottom of the Fact tab might not be phrased the way you would prefer for your custom attributes. Each Sentence will also appear in Narrative...

Missing Lists Toolbar

Do you mean the Named Lists Pane that appears to the right of the Records Window ? If so, then either use menu bar option Lists > Named Lists Pane or click on the icon in the toolbar below the menu bar that looks like a small square box with a blue top and green right-hand edge. Both these options t...

May I suggest you read through my Forum topic Place and Address References at: http://www.fhug.org.uk/cgi-bin/index.cgi?action=forum&board=v4use&op=display&num=4706 which goes into a lot more detail than I can repeat here. It explains how I create a FH Source & Repository data struct...

If both your computers have internet access you should consider using Dropbox or something similar to keep your Project in sync between the two machines.

Windows Live Mesh synchronises my folders/files with Windows Live SkyDrive on-line cloud storage. So if the .ged file is 'locked' by W...

Places - same number of levels for all?

I maintain the same number of columns in all Place entries as you do, which may require fields sometimes. This works better when using FH Tools > Work with Data > Places . In the Places List window the columns all contain the same type of place (e.g. Place 1 = Town, Place 2 = County, Place 3 = Count...

I have tried FH Demo V3.0.1 on a Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit PC, but it does not exhibit the scrollbar bug. I suspect PeterR is using a Windows XP 32-bit PC, and it does not have the bug. My main PC is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit . So I guess the bug only arises on Windows 7 &/or 64-bit ...

In effect that is what Jane is suggesting. The edits for FAML and NOTN convert these unrecognised tags into FH customised attributes using the _ATTR tag followed by the TYPE tag that defines the custom attribute name. These will appear on your FH Property Box - Fact tab. You then use FH Tools > Work...

bm, Are you saying that your diagram pictures are all the same height (0.75' as specified in your Diagram Options) but are different widths? If so, it is probably because the height to width ratio is not the same for all the pictures. If for example some pictures are Landscape shape and others are P...
