Re: gedcom files and ipad

Hi, I have used Heredis for years, I have been using version 2022 for several months now and have no issues importing a GedCom from FH 7, Whilst I do not have an iPad I use the android option of Heredis. I use Mike Tate's Export Gedcom plugin to achieve this, first into Heredis PC and then from that...

Re: Charting Companion Revisited

You can get it from the Family Historian store for £19.99

https://store.family-historian.co.uk/pr ... -download/

I am not sure if this will qualify you for a free upgrade to version 8, maybe Progeny can clarify this. I sent a message and my issue was resolved :-)

Re: FTM2019 upgrade

I bought FTM 2019 in 2019 so it does not affect me anyway. I just wonder why after two years of hearing nothing from them why they decide to plug it now, maybe there is a new version in the pipeline.

Thinking about how long FTM 2019 has been out, maybe it is worth waiting for a new version?

Re: What are good FH7 and iOS app combinations?

Hi Mike, Yes, I followed the Export Gedcom File plugin help. The media does appear in the Heredis for Windows application. However, I'm struggling to get it across to the iOS app. Using Heredis for Windows 2022 and the equivalent 22 app, I tried the "Share on Local Network" but couldn't get it to s...

If you want Charting Companion to include those then you must use the Export Gedcom File plugin as explained earlier.
I have received a reply from Pierre Clouthier at Progeny Software, with a download link to version 8 of Charting Companion, which does recognise custom attributes.

Dave, the issue seems to primarily involve custom attributes. Custom events will be OK.
So if your Project has no custom attributes or they are irrelevant to the Charting Companion charts then they will work.
Agreed, I have the custom Attribute "Eye Colour" in FH7 and it is ignored by CC.

Has anyone reported this problem to CP?

Re: V7 PDF creation very slow, creating huge files

I have never had an issue with any reports in FH V6, but in V7 it is an absolute shambles, its not even consistent, sometimes I get a report with no text or images, just headers and footers, sometimes missing images, it gives up halfway through generating 1000 or so pages and crashes, if I refresh t...

Installing v7.0.1.3 did not require a reboot, so that's an improvement, I suppose.
Same here, but I think that was fixed in v7.012

Re: No searchable text in PDF reports

PDF generation creates a PDF faultlessly (albeit as an image) because I suspect of the 64Gb of memory I have; and then my PDF program converts the image to text etc. So no help to CP as the memory issue is obvious once you twig that FH is producing images. And I don't use the facility at all -- I d...
