Re: A simple to-do list

In the process, I'll iden...

Re: A simple to-do list

we are discovering and (re!)documenting various features that already do a lot of what many of us want or nearly offers a lot more. I'm watching quietly and taking notes!

Re: A simple to-do list

David, If you work from the record list, you can being up the Named List Pane via the Named Lists Pane button on the Menu, or the Lists > Named List Pane Menu option. If you work from the Focus window or a diagram, it's a little more complicated -- you need to bring up the Named Lists Pane alongside...

Mike, yes but you still need to populate so many fields manually that you might as well do them all in one go.

Re: Entering wife's maiden name and citation in Ancestral Sources

Some people would list Ancestry as a Publisher -- there are no easy answers. I set my AS Title Template in AS to {OTHER} and enter the following (as an example) in Other info, but there isn't a right way to do it -- 1871 census of England, Middlesex, Waltham Cross, John C Wright; digital image, Ance...

Re: Sort Dates with no Links

Colin, the Filter will do the job as well as a custom query . I just tend to reach for queries rather than filters as my tool of choice.

Re: Wishlist: Provide a “Program Ready” event in API

That's the sort of facility I think a Wish List item could ask to enhance -- add other option to those workspace options -- e.g. including the Named List pane.

Re: Sort Dates with no Links

I've also done a recent merge and have acquired the same problem. I wrote a custom query to find Media records with title Sort Date; added them to a named list and then deleted all records in the named list. I then ran the Sort date plugin to re-add Sort dates where they were missing. I BACKED MY DA...

Re: Multiple source and image title templates for marriages?

If you're going to do a lot of manual tweaking of the title, consider putting the whole thing in the Other info box and making the template just {OTHER} -- that way any data changes you make won't affect the title. But it's more work.

Re: A simple to-do list

If you want to see the Records list alongside another window and the Named List pane (and your screen is wide enough, you can adjust the slider - if your screen is big enough to make it usable (I have a 34" monitor, but others will not have that luxury).

Re: A simple to-do list

Window > Tile Vertically Show the Named List Pane. Slide the separator between Record window and Named List Pane all the way to the left hiding the Record window. Not great, but it's doable. As you say, people who work from the Records List rather than the Focus window or diagrams can do it more eas...

Re: Multiple source and image title templates for marriages?

You could try using the Other Info field, which can be included as {OTHER} in a template, or the Ref ID filed ({REF}) if you don't use them for anything else. Some time back -- and I can't find the post, it's so long ago -- I asked about having the option for different settings for different source ...

Mike, Was this intended to be in the WishList forum? Also, I believe that what you suggest needs lot more thought... It isn't possible to run a Plugin automatically, so in addition to the Program Ready Event that you suggest, you would need to add the ability to run a Plugin on some trigger rather t...

Re: I Quit FH for TMG

I've customised the plugin somewhat for my own use, Mike.

P.S. I would hope the Source record wouldn't look the same -- all the token fields should have been replaced with real data in the source record :D

Re: I Quit FH for TMG

The layout out of all the boxes is done by Menu > Customize Data Entry and not the Plugin Templates.


Sorry, Mike -- I don't understand -- the screenshot was from the tab to define templates within the plugin. What has "Menu > Customize Data Entry" to do with it?

Re: I Quit FH for TMG

There are no standard templates; you have to define them for yourself. However, Mike is being a little pessimistic when he says don't expect too much. For example, this is my template for a GRO birth certificate:

Everyone works differently.

I use the Short title to hold a simple identifier for the source, to make it e...
