Specific Sentence Templates not honoured.

The 20732|sentences: my lack of Englisch? thread seems to identify a significant fault in CP. In the Property Box Facts tab the Sentence box can be edited to create a Template specific to that Fact. Any such specific fact Template should be used in Narrative Reports but currently they seem to be ign...

Re: sentences: my lack of Englisch?

Yes, these postings are limited to a maximum of 3 attachments. Language translation is quite complicated and is controlled by several custom settings.

Re: Adding multiple marriages in AS

If you invoke AS by using the Ancestral Sources Data Entry plugin it has an option to Close on 'Save Entry to File' which if not ticked will allow multiple entries from AS.

I cannot remember what the AS default is after Save Entry to File.

Re: Get Year from event when contains BEF, AFT etc

Dave, the fact is that Date values are potentially a complex data structure and need careful handling. Qualifiers like :YEAR only work for simple Date formats. See the Help for General Topics > Date Formats that illustrates how qualifiers behave. In the case of Before and After , etc, check the Date...

Re: Questions from TMG Refugee

Yes, I did, but my wife and I retired here some years ago and have no family connections with the area.

I have updated the Query with a 'safer' version that only lists matching Witness Roles with cells that can delete them.
The Result Set 'blank' cells, if selected, do not delete anything.

Re: Should I Eliminate Most Witness Facts?

Yes, that makes sense.
If you have a lot of those 'superfluous' Fact Witnesses, then they can be bulk deleted via a suitable custom Query.
We can advise how to build such a Query.

Re: Fact Set file structure

Apart from noticing the numbers, I have ignored them. The Extended Set has probably not been updated since it was introduced many years ago in FH V6, whereas new facts have been added to the FH V7 Fact Sets. I've not noticed any obvious features that differ between versions. I think some other custo...

Re: Source Records

John, you can more easily use the Tools > Work with Data > Addresses... command and Edit... the entries there. If you hold down the Alt key on your keyboard while you click on a Part 2 or Part 3 column heading, that will bring long Addresses to the top where you can then Edit... each one very easily.

Re: Audit RM Direct Import plugin

There appear to be two misnomers there! Firstly, the quoted "Superfluous sort dates..." only apply where Range Dates are used and I doubt if any Census event uses Range Dates. Secondly, there is absolutely no problem with a Sort Date of the year 3850 or 3860 . They are not "free-form dates". FH is p...

Re: TNG and FH event witnesses standoff

You have a valid point regarding the word 'Witness'. It is coined by FH but does confuse users. Most other products use the term 'Shared Fact' that is consistent with the _SHAR tag. Let me think about an alternative. However, did you know that in the Export Gedcom File plugin you can customise the W...

The plugin creates them because that is the option you chose.
