Method 2 issue - FH7 and AS v7.0

Post by Kingy » 09 Jan 2021 20:10

Hi

I am using Method 2 on all the entries.

Census works fine but Baptism and Marriage (so far) don't add the image to the individual and I have to add it retrospectively in FH.

In the settings "Census settings - method 2 " there is a tickbox for "link image to individuals" but I cant see an equivalent in any other method 2 settings.

Am I doing something wrong or is this by design? I am using - FH7 and AS v7.0

Thanks
Paul

I think that Census option was added as a special concession for one user. Check what the Help says.

It is not normally recommended to attach document images directly to Individuals on the Media tab which is usually reserved for photos to appear in the Focus Window, Diagrams, and Reports next to the person.

Normally source document images should be attached to Citations &/or Facts for Method 2.

The even stronger recommendation is to use Method 1.

What are you doing for Source Text?

The Help advises that you should not use it for Method 2.

IMO if you are keeping images and Source Text, then what you doing wrong is using Method 2 at all, but I do prefer the 'splitter' Method 1.

There is advice on Method 1 v Method 2 in the KB Citing Sources: Method 1 and Method 2.

Actually the Census option mentioned is used by many users. We are all extremely grateful.
