Re: Hiding parts of a tree

Don't forget you can save smaller diagrams of family groups you are working on - it doesn't have to be your entire tree. Then there may be no need to zoom. Also, if you know roughly which part of the chart you want to look at you can use the left-most of the two manifying glass icons and draw a rect...

Re: reordering the Pool

Sorry, I must have added it as a custom column to my records window and forgotten that it is not a standard column. If you want to add it, the expression you need is =RelationPool() . However, as I said in my previous reply you can see the Pool numbers if you run the standard Search for Orphans quer...

Re: reordering the Pool

There won't be any gaps in the numbers. If you click on the column heading for the Pool number in the Records Window, or in the results set from the Search for Orphans query, this will sort the pools in order. If pool number 23 exists then all pool numbers up to 23 also exist!

Re: All project backup

The small backup for GED I believe is still UTF-8
Why do you think that? The backup is just a copy of your Gedcom.

FH V6 uses UTF-16 by default. So unless you have changed this default using Preferences > File Load/Save > Save in UTF-8 file format your backups will be in UTF-16 format.

Re: Parameter calculation in Query

I don't think you can caluclate a value from a parameter, but I am ready to be corrected. In the example you have given (which I know is not the specific query you want) you could simply exclude anyone whose 'age at death' was under 50. See the standard query Age at Death for the expression to use. ...

Re: Private Trees

Using the information in other people's trees is very dangerous as many trees contain errors. The copying of trees perpetuates these errors. The worst case I have found of this (so far) is an obvious error which has been copied into well over 350 trees on Ancestry alone. This demonstrates that the ...

Re: Show Project Statistics 2.1

You make a will while you are alive, and the date of the event should be the date of the will. So the Will fact is a lifetime event.
The Probate fact is after death, as that is when the deceased's estate is administered.

Re: Printing media pictures

When viewing the photo in the main Media Window click the Open Editor/Player icon at the right hand end of the top toolbar (green circle with black trangle). This will open the photo in your default photo viewer (probably Windows Photo Viewer), from where it can be printed in the usual way.

Re: marital status in diagrams

I didn't choose those settings. They appear by default when I add any <Custom Item> .

However we should not get bogged down with this unless the OP has any problems with individuals with multiple partners. Don't want to over complicate things.

Re: marital status in diagrams

That will automatically apply to the appropriate family couple even if there were multiple partners. Sorry to disagree but I don't think it is clear. Perhaps it depends on where you display things in the rest of the text scheme. For example if I add the marital status to my standard text scheme, if...

Creating a Source record for the city would be a useful addition, but not an alternative, to a Place record. There will always be a Place record associated with the event unless you leave the place field completely blank, but if you did that the place name would not appear in reports and, as you say...

It sounds as if you have linked the image to the Individual record as a whole.
