I have not followed the technicalities of this. However, I notice the original application was for entering elements in a passenger list.
I too use lists where a single entry on the internet database may include several different facts.
However, some facts may appear more than once. e.g. 2 addresses, 2 emigrations.
So am wondering whether the multifact plug in will allow for a single fact to be added more than once?

Re adding a single fact more than once, yes -- although you will have to do them in separate 'passes' (which can be done without closing the plugin.)

OK, here's the latest version which I think addresses all the issues raised so far -- with one exception (which I will come to).

Multifact.fh_lua
(68.61 KiB) Downloaded 8 times


The one outstanding problem is Jane's slow loading time -- I've put in a progressbar as advised by Mike Tate, but the size of Jane's fact files (which I've been testing with) mean the progress bar isn't displayed -- and I'm not seeing the same slow loading with the same files...

Has it been established at what stage Jane's slow loading occurs?
Is it actually while loading the Fact Sets, or is it prior to that when requiring the libary modules, or elsewhere?

Mike, No -- but given that most plugins require library modules, I'd expect it to be something specific to this plugin... And Jane managed to reduce the load time from 40 seconds to 24 by tidying up her fact sets, so they must be at least part of the challenge (but perhaps not all of it).

Jane, do you have a lot of places and addresses -- that may be another source of slow loading?
