FH seizes when incomplete date is entered & I click away

I am running FH through CrossOver on a Mac and keep hitting the same problem. If I enter part of a date in a date field and then click away to check the date I am entering is correct, when I click back to FH it is frozen. Hitting the Cancel button or the red cross button does nothing. Pressing Esc d...

Mervyn,

Many thanks. I have only just got round to installing VIPRiser and it works beautifully.

Re: FH6 seizing up

I have the latest version of Crossover, but I could not install .NET v 4 when I tried the other day. As you have said, must remember the date before clicking in the date field!

FH6 seizing up

I'm not sure whether this is a bug or maybe because I am running FH6 on Crossover on my Mac. When I create a new person on two occasions I have entered bef in the Born: field and then clicked away to check the date. FH6 produces an Invalid Date window, quite correctly, but I cannot do anything with ...

Re: Cannot Save Report as PDF on Mac with Crossover

I have tried FH novapdf, which wouldn't install. Then I tried BullzipPDFPrinter, which needed .NET Framework v 4 which stalled at the start of the install process. Have also now tried PDFWriter but the install stops when it tries to install .NET Framework.
I'm using MacOS Catalina 10.15.3

Cannot Save Report as PDF on Mac with Crossover

I am using FHv6.2 with Crossover v19 on a Mac. I cannot work out how to enable Save Report as PDF. When selected I do not get a requester box for destination of the file. FH appears to create the file but it does not appear anywhere on my computer. I can save the report as HTML (with graphics) & rtf...

Re: Reports appear blank on screen

Many thanks to both responders. I thought there would be a simple answer, but it was buried fairly deep!

Reports appear blank on screen

Can anyone tell me how I can make the text appear on reports created with FH, when on the screen. The only thing I can see is any media attached to the report. When I print the report all the relevant text is there but the media isn't!
I am using FH within Crossover on a Mac

Thanks Jane,
I have added a comment on the Wish List page. I will survive without this flexibility!

Fact definition - Age at death

I am at last really trying to get to grips with version 4 and am trying to create a sentence in relation to facts recorded for a Death Certificate. One of the fields is Age: (at death) so I tried the following in the Fact Definition window, neither of which work! {individual} died {date} {place} age...

2.2.3 Problem with Pictures

I have just installed FH and am very pleased with it. I am confused by the fact that sometimes FH allows me to insert a tiff photo and at other times does not. Both tiff files have been produced in the same way with the same program.
