Census Method 2 - Link images to entries

Post by trevorrix » 29 Sep 2020 22:55

In AS Options - Census Method 2 - Link images to entries, I would like to request an additional option for "Link to individuals" please. As in link the selected image to all of the individuals in the household.

The reason is that I have been using FH since the launch in 2002. I have always preferred to have thumbnails of census images show in each individuals Property Box > Media tab. And use the green Open In Editor/Player to display the image full screen. My method is that the images are my sources, so I don't need to waste time transcribing them in detail. I just view the image if I want to check something.

Although I don't like the concept of census images being linked directly to an individual, this option will be available for method 2 census sources in the next version of AS.

Best wishes

That is great news. Thank you Nick. That additional option will save me and others many hours of linking manually.
