Re: use search and replace plugin with newline in text

What exactly does the error say?

Do you have patterns turned on? If so you will need to escape the square brackets with a percent sign.

Re: import same-sex partner from TMG to FH

But what happened then was that FH saw a residence tag with 2 unmarried people as principals, and didn't like that. It is worth remembering that being in a Family As Spouse, does not imply marriage in Family Historian only that they have some sort of relationship. You can set the couple to Unmarrie...

Re: Sources After GEDCOM download to FH from Legacy

One of the advantages with Family Historian is the ability to write a plugin to sort out data on import. So a simple plugin and copy or move the short title to the title and move the medi field to the _type field. There are a few in the downloads which already do some of this. So if you have a full ...

If you want to put something in the Date field you could put "date unknown" that way the standard sentence would not be too bad.

Re: FH will not open

BitDefender is a real pain. I don't know why any one would want to use it.

Did you read all the information here Bit Defender (15705) and the associated thread mentioned?

Make sure you have excluded the program from scanning and added it to the internet white list.

Re: Sources After GEDCOM download to FH from Legacy

The first thing to check is the contents of your exported Gedcom file to see if the Type field was exported at all, you can open the file in a Text editor to search for one of the Type values, it may be the data is there. You can do the same for your missing source, check if you can find the title i...

Re: Computer failed only have upgrade disk for v6

The V5 licence will not be on the old computer, unless you make a practice of keeping a record of all licence codes in a spreadsheet or similar. Calico won't be able to provide your licence as they can only resend licences purchased direct from them, but it may be worth asking them if they can help ...

Re: Change census date from Year to full date

If you really wanted to you could simply prompt for all the OCCU ones and skip the ones you wanted to leave or write your own plugin to check the source for the event and then check the source information to see where the item was sourced.

Re: require issue.

The FH lua functions are only available when running lua within Family Historian, as they are apis to the parent program.

if you really wanted to I suppose you could write a dummy module to use in zb.

Personally I would never move anything to a module until it's fully tested.

Re: Importing from TMG 9.05 > FH 6.2.7.......no exhibits

One option might be to create a tiny project and add an OLE object in TMG, then look at the database record to see how it's identified, you could then do a query in TMG to find any in your big database.

Re: Can I join together Individual Summary Reports into one?

Narrative reports can be "cleaned" by customising the sentences, for example if you don't want to show where you have entered multiple facts for the same information, set the ones you don't want to an override sentence of {blank} and change a few around to improve the flow.

Re: Importing from TMG 9.05 > FH 6.2.7.......no exhibits

An OLE error suggests some of the media may be OLE linked rather than being a simple file link. I have never used TMG, but you may be able to track down the odd media links and correct them.
