Set Preferred Spouse and only display that family?

Post by rayhayes » 01 May 2021 05:41

Hi,
When I open my FH 7.0.3 file and view the Home view, my three spouses and families are all shown.
Is there a way to display only one family, and to set the preferred spouse and family?
Thanks
Ray

Ray, I guess by the Home view you mean the Focus Window.
If the database has three spouses recorded against a person (you) then that is what it displays.
If your 'preferred' wife only has one husband (you) then set her as the Focus person and only one family is shown.
There is no other way of identifying a 'preferred' spouse or family.

Thanks Mike,
I had already used your suggestion, but wondered if there may be some option I hadn't found in the program help and the online knowledge base.
