Family Historian V6.2.3 undocumented features

Postby tatewise » 15 Feb 2017 19:38

Calico Pie are being a bit secretive about what this version fixes. In Latest Free Update they say:
The upgrade provides various improvements to mapping, PDF creation, and picture-handling. It fixes a number of bugs. There is also an alternative mechanism for opening the Accent popup window which can be chosen in Preferences (General tab).
Apart from the Accent popup feature, is anyone aware of what improvements and bug fixes have been implemented?

I'm using it and, no, I've not seen anything new.

I have just tested half a dozen minor bugs/issues that I have reported in the past, and none have been fixed in 6.2.3.

Hi Forum

Applying an upgrade is new to me (I came in at 6.2.2) - I have made various FH customisations. I have used the Plug-In to back these up.

Question - will these customisations be removed during the upgrade and therefore I will need to do a restore of the customisations afterwards?

Just install the upgrade over your existing 6.2.2 and it will retain all your customisations. The plugin is for use when installing from scratch on a new machine.

Hi Forum

Now running with FH 6.2.3. I also reported a bug last August whereby Individuals with no declared Sex show up as Great Uncle, or generations thereof. Great Great Uncle, etc.

This is not fixed either... :roll:
