Re: Ancestor/Descendant count

Alternatively, if you want to keep those Ancestor/Descendant Counts, then modify the Rows filter tab of the Query to
Exclude if... =FactLabel(%FACT%) matches and specify Ancestor Counts, then repeat for Descendant Counts.
Ask again if you need more specific instructions.

Re: Deleting trees no longer wanted

Jean, all the names of the trees will be removed from the list, but the files will still exist on the disk. I wonder if you are not using FH to its full potential. If you are relying on the File > Gedcom File Tasks list to open GEDCOM files, maybe you don't realise that it is better to create Projec...

Re: Deleting trees no longer wanted

In Jane's absence may I explain. You cannot fix the problem anywhere in FH itself. In fact, you must close FH. Follow the link to Clean Out the Recent File List and download the fhclrmrulist.exe application file. After the download, double-click that .exe file to run it on your PC and it will comple...

Re: V7 icons in diagrams ~ how to add them

In that case, ensure the Expression is =IsTrue(%INDI.BURI.SOUR>TITL%=“Parish Register”) and undertake the detective work I suggested earlier.

Re: V7 icons in diagrams ~ how to add them

The Expression looks fine.

But is the Source record Title exactly Parish Register the same as the Source records for Baptisms and Marriages?

Are you sure you have selected an Icon in the Box Features for this Condition?

Re: 1841 census showing children who were dead

Sue, that is the theory, but I imagine a large proportion of people, especially in 1841, were illiterate, so would need help from the enumerator to fill out the schedules.

Re: Second screen display problem

It may be the Lenovo graphics card drivers or alternatively did the Samsung monitor come with its own interface card and drivers that may need updating. Do you have a local computer repair shop that may offer advice?

I get the impression that FH does stretch some graphics features.

Re: 1841 census showing children who were dead

However, unlike 1911, in 1841 the people did not enter their own census details but they were compiled by an enumerator. So misunderstanding the census instructions is not a valid explanation. The enumerator should have only entered people present on the census night. Perhaps the enumerator asked ab...

It is very disappointing that you both seem to think they are no good. You could always simply work with the windows APIs directly rather than using the modules.

Yes, Mark is correct.

Mark, you are still missing the point.

So even if my plugins abandoned FH V5 and V6 the problem would still exist. It seems to be a ...
