Re: Descendants Tab

Have you experimented with using the Left Right Descendants diagram instead, it offers a lot more customisation and you can control the number of generations to show on opening and easily change the information shown.

Re: Surname prefix (SPFX)

As Mike said you can add any fields you need on the All tab by right clicking on the name. If FH does not import them, but you could probably write a plugin to recreate them. You could then customise the columns on the record window and the property box to include the fields. 2022-06-16_115457.jpg

Re: Places in a FH Project Gedcom file

Place records and facts are completely different things. When you use the Data Reference Tab on the Fact query what you will see are 1. PLAC> Which is a Place record. 2. The Long Lat value for the place record. 3. Map which is the local to fact information. As can easily be seen from the Data Refere...

Re: Places in a FH Project Gedcom file

Rather than use an external program, why not simply use a Fact query with columns for the fields you want to remove highlight the columns and press the delete key.

Re: Amazon Fire tablet - view GEDCOM data

I use GED explorer as it works well with FH data, including media.

Make sure you have FH set to save in UTF8 and you can simply copy the Project folder over.

Re: Importing flags from FH tree

Are you actually talking about icons on diagrams based on flags not showing? Did you follow all the instructions here Family Historian Co...

Sorry, slightly off topic, but if you want an easy way to view code, you can install the current Power Toys release from Microsoft and then use the preview pane in Windows File Explorer to view any code including .Bat in the pane.

Re: Issues when directly Importing RM 8 File with Places

I suspect it's something different in the DB for RM8, if you have not done so it would be worth sending Calico a small sample file which causes the problem, because some of your places have come across suggesting there is some subtle difference in the places which have not come across.

Re: Fact icons inside Diagram boxes

Another option: You can't use an icon, but you could use a font, such as Wingdings or similar. Then wrap a font change command around the character you want to use, remembering to condition it on the existence of the field you need by using a text if expression. Then another font change to go back t...

Re: import alternate names

The attached query will list all people with more that one name.

You can select the Name 2 column fields you want to delete and press the delete key to remove them, be careful if you have any people with a 2nd or subsequent name you want to retain.

P.S As a developer, if you want to see how to develop your own plugins any of the ones from the store are in open code so you look and customise the source code if you want to.
