When I click to open GC a separate window opens showing all the same FH ged files. I have to click on all files to see again the GC icons.I click again on the GC icon and get the following message 'do you want to open this file by default whenever you use GC' I click Yes and get the next message
'There are no individuals in the selected file. This is probably because the file selected was not a GEDCOM file. Please select another Gedcom family history file from the file menu to try again'
When I click OK GC opens.The source ID which had been counting previous entries is now set back to 1
I can continue going thru this process although it is cumbersome, but would prefer to have it work properly.Also, since the source ID set back to 1,does this represent a problem with previous census files already entered and saved.
Comments and suggestions welcome
I will post shortly on my images problem.

Gedcom Census is asking you to open your family history file, the one you use in Family Historian which is probably in your My Documents (in your Family Historian Projects folder if you use v4 of FH). It sounds like instead you tried to open the Gedcom Census program (i.e. you tried to get Gedcom Census to load in Gedcom Census!)which of course isn't a family history file and doesn't include any individuals as the error correctly stated! You then told it you wanted it to always load this file every time. The solution is to go to File->Open and select the correct family history file.
