Displaying ID and Relationship in Diagrams

Post by Linda Lou » 11 Jun 2021 04:06

Hello,
This is my first post so apologies if I'm in the wrong place. I have FH7 and I wanted to add the ID and relationship to the text scheme in my diagram. I cloned the current scheme and made the changes which worked. However, when I next open the diagram, the scheme reverts back to the original scheme. How can I make my scheme the default? I've tried to find an answer in the knowledge base but this forum is huge!
Thanks in advance.

Welcome Linda.

With the Diagram displayed, open Diagram > Options > Text tab and check the required Text Scheme is selected.
Is the Remember Options ticked bottom left?

With the desired Text Scheme selected, Remember Options ticked, and after you click OK it should apply to all Diagrams.

Another technique is to use Diagram > Save Diagram As > Custom Diagram Type... and give it a memorable Name, that can be displayed via the Charts > Custom Diagrams command.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your response and help. I'll use the menu in future. If I right click on the diagram and select options, the 'Remember options' box doesn't appear anywhere in any of the options tabs. There is a greyed out button called 'Set as defaults' but that doesn't work, either. I can select 'remember options' if I use the menu.
Cheers,
Lyn

Hi Mike,

I've just tried using the menu and it won't save the current diagram options, either. I will use your second suggestion. There's always more than one way to do something!

Cheers
Lyn

The Set as defaults... option only appears in the Everyone Diagram. Is that what you are displaying?
It should not be greyed out but is a blue clickable link.

The standard Ancestor, Descendant, Ancestor & Descendant and All Relatives diagrams should have Remember Options tick box.

Certainly, the Diagram > Save/Restore Options > Save Current Diagram Options command should work.

However, that the options won't save via various techniques may indicate a more serious problem that needs investigating.

Hi Mike,

The Set as Defaults appears in all diagrams but the Remember options doesn't appear anywhere. I saved it as a custom diagram and that works. I'll have to email FH to sort this out, I think.

Thanks for your help.

Lyn, are you sure you have FH v7.0.5 installed and not FH v6.2.7 which has a Save as Default check box in all Diagrams?

Mike,

I definitely have FH v7.0.5 installed. I didn't do an upgrade from v6.2.7 (which had the save as default check box) but bought a new copy of the software. I liked the save as default which is why I want it to work. I'll send Calico Pie an email tomorrow and see if they can help.

Cheers,
Lyn

Hi Mike,

My problem has mostly solved itself so I'm happy. All I had to do was close the program and go back in again! The only diagrams it doesn't work in is the Everyone diagram and the All Relatives plus Indirect Relatives so I can use the workaround you gave me to make it work in those diagrams.

Many thanks for your help.

Lyn, rather than an email use CP's ticket system
