Re: New libraries available for FH6 -- please test!

compat53 is now properly packaged and available for loadrequire in FH6. I have tested the utf8 library at https://github.com/Stepets/utf8.lua and it works for both Lua 5.1 and 5.3 (adding functions into the pre-existing utf 8 library. (In Lua 5.1, compat53 is a prerequisite). I have asked if this li...

Re: Source Record Template questions

Principal2 is only for Marriage certificates (where you need to identify both spouses). Are you referring to the Date field within the Citation details (which I don't think is visible unless you've customised the template)? If you are, per Gedcom it would be used for the date the information was ent...

Re: Create Source From Template- Problem

I have copied and pasted the line that Tlwa01 into line 759 and put a blank line under it (as there was one there before I rudely used the space). It has cured my problem, so thanks for that Tlwa01.

Re: Installing V7 on a second device

YOU should have downloaded an installation file when you bought the product and saved it somewhere secure. However https://www.family-historian.co.uk/install7 will lead you to a link to download again.

The KB has only just started being updated for V7, I'm afraid,

Re: Installing V7 on a second device

I don't think you need to enter your activation code, just logon to your account. (One of the benefits of the new authorisation system is that you don't need to retain and enter a complex multi-character code more than once).

Re: Can you run FH on two machines

You can install FH twice under the same licence (and twice only) as long as both PCs belong to you and the software is only ever used by you (so 1 PC at a time).

See Synchronising Family Historian between 2 PCs for synching data between two PCs.

Re: New libraries available for FH6 -- please test!

Mike,

Have you looked at that Github page I have directed you to twice!!!

https://github.com/Stepets/utf8.lua

utf8 as distributed by CP is broken because 95% of it is missing.

1. You're not debugging Calico Pie software. In the case of compat53, you're debugging work I've done which CP has kindly uploaded for use with FH6.

I have never seen a brides mother (or grooms mother for that matter) on a marriage certificate unless they were a witness.
Modern Scottish certificates show them.

New Brunswick Canada certificates show them.

I've got examples from all over the place showing them.

Re: V7 PDF creation very slow, creating huge files

It isn't only a PDF issue -- it affects xps/oxps output as well. Which points a finger at some Microsoft interface... since nobody else supports xps.

Re: V7 PDF creation very slow, creating huge files

So it would seem an FH choice to only send images to Family Historian PDF.
I very much doubt it's a choice.
