Re: Import gedcom with photos from online url

Downloading from https in FH plugins is possible using luacom, but the challenge is generally authorising the session for sites such as Ancestry which need cookies or sessions set to allow the images to be downloaded.

Re: Populating citation fields in a prepared citation

The fhUtils pCite option is read only, so you will need to access the fields directly via the HEAD record and the _PCIT field.

Have a look at the source for the loadPreparedCitation in the fhutils source for ideas.

Re: Who are the Munros?

There might be a story behind one or two as some of them are mine, used with permission for the people still living. I suspect some of the others are relations of Simon's. There are also a few stock images.

Re: Slow Save on Network Share

It would be a useful exercise to try a copy the project locally. How long does the load save cycle take?

Also it might be worth checking if your Anti-virus is disabled (temporally) does that make any difference to the speed

Re: Adding siblings in V7

If you are using a diagram to add information remember you can only add people who would be shown on that chart. So for example with a Chart Root of Fred Bloggs married to Jane Smith, you can drag down from the parents of Fred Bloggs to add his siblings, but as Jane's parents will not be shown you c...

Re: Testing Plugins for V6 and V7

I have checked with CP.

For plugin development purposes only you can install
2 Copies of FH 7
and 1 copy of FH6

What you can not do is sell your V6 licence to someone else once you have purchased an upgrade to 7. This is what the Non transferable part of the licence means.

Re: Recording DNA matches in Family Historian

I don't think you can do rich text directly, but you can easily set up a rich text, AutoText for the table and just add it in using the insert Autotext in the Note Editor. However if you are making use of the Query, this will not work with a rich text table, as GetLabelledText will not be able to pu...

You might find this plug in helpful. Just select all the Individuals you want to get a list of all the places associated with facts for them. N.B Does not include Witnessed events. The result set can easily be saved as a Named List

Another option is to create Note Record, attach media to that Note Record and then using the Notes Records Report and include that in your book.

Re: Report Window Engine - word processing

You can't add images in free text, but a good way to include extra media is to create a Blank Chart in the Diagram tools and then add any images you want to include with titles using the insert Images or Insert Text and then include that chart as the facing page to your free text page.

Re: Website Host problem

I am not sure what you have been paying. We host FHUG on Krystal and they have been very good and allow folder protection.

Their base packages start at £4.99 per month.

If you decide you like the look use de3e33b5 to get £10 discount at the checkout.

2. Yes, not all products support 5.5.1 the same.
3. See 1 above, I am not sure what page you looked at

Re: Rotating name box in diagram chart

Depending on the amount of information, have you played around with left right diagrams, for small amounts of text and a bit of tweaking on the dimensions they tend to be more compact.
