AS Media Files

Postby bonalymac » 11 Oct 2017 12:45

Still trying to learn the basics.

I've entered Marriage details via AS, then added a linked Marriage Cert image.

When I return to FH, the Image is clearly there eg

But in the media section it does not show. Am I doing something wrong, or is this expected behaviour. I haven't found anything in the tutorials to answer this.

1st screenshot is looking at the Source record showing image is attached to its Media tab, because it is a source document.

2nd screenshot is looking at the Individual record Media tab which is for photos of the person.

Think about it a bit further.
The Marriage Certificate applies to both Rupert and Janet and is not only cited by the Marriage Event but also by other facts added by AS. So to keep everything in one place, it is all in the Source record.

It looks like you have used the Knowledge Base > Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Marriage Facts.
The last step Knowledge Base > Ancestral Sources Tutorial ~ Enter Marriage ~ (9) Examine Family Historian explains where everything has been saved in FH.

Note that Individual, Family, Source and Place records all have a Media tab for images associated with them. Also Media can be attached directly to Facts and to Citations. See Knowledge Base > Formal Database Structure.

BTW: I have moved this to the Ancestral Sources Forum as it is not a Plugin issue.

Thanks again.

Its obvious once explained, but not so clear beforehand.

Thanks again

No problem.
Since FH V6 there is a shortcut to the Source Media.
In the Facts tab or the Sources For pane, with the Fact or Source selected, click the Show Media button in the central toolbar to display the image, with further options to show it in the context of other records.
