Colour Record Text in data lists

Post by whatlink » 26 Dec 2018 11:59

Hi
Is it possible to change the formatted font colour for an individual record in a list: Individuals, Families or Named Lists.
I have avoided using the word "highlight" as this gives all sorts of 'extra' options.

I simply want to 'show up' individuals etc who I wish to revisit and research more.
I cannot find any link to let me do this simple task?
Thanks

No, it is not possible to colour the text of nominated records in such lists.

There are other techniques for tracking Individuals who need more research.
See Knowledge Base > Create Work In Progress or Research To Do Lists.

It is not necessarily all that "simple".
How & where would such 'colour' data be saved after you closed FH?
The only database for such records is the GEDCOM file, and the standard specification does not allow for such 'colour' data.

The 'colour' could be conditional on something such as a custom Fact or a record Flag or existence in a Named List.
The Wish List Ref 548 Conditional Colour and Font Options proposes that and you can Vote for that feature.

You may also propose your idea to Calico Pie via their Knowledge Base > Problem Reporting Support Centre Ticket System.

Many thanks for the link to Knowledge Base which allows you to introduce a "To Do" tab to "Facts" window. Bit of a process but excellent when set up. :D
