Horizontal scroll bar on Text box on main form

Would it be possible to add a horizontal scroll bar the the Text box on the main form? Currently it is necessary to click on the blue Text control first to be able to scroll left and right to see all the text, and if necessary, adjust the column widths. I'm using V7.4.4

Re: Issue with "Edit|Add new empty row (person not in file)"

I'm about to try out the new AS verson and add new empty row, but may I suggest taking things a small step further, and having an Add Unrelated Person option that pops up a form to add the person's census details and, on confirming the entry, populates the next row with the appropriate details, offe...

Custom Id

I have about 20000 individuals in my tree, a significant proportion of which have custom ids. The ids fall into three categories: 1. Those that are the same as the record id 2. Those that start with the letter D 3. Those that start with the letters BS I would like to delete all the custom id fields ...

Image sequencing

I have noticed on several occasions that when I drag several images (more than 4) onto the media tab of a source that I am creating, FH sequences (preferences) them in a different order to that in which I (a) have numbered the images, and (b) that I have selected them. For example, images labelled P...

Re: Project Description

Thanks for the suggestions. I have started to compile the project desription in the Header record, and as suggested, also made a cross-reference via a note record too. It is a shame that the File Decription cannot use formatting :(

Project Description

I'm not sure if this question has been asked before - I coudn't find anything on a quick search. As with many people, I have adopted my own conventions whilst researching, and my research may have very clear boundaries. For example, on a birth entry where I have only the registration district as a p...

Re: Empty boxes on a diagram

I have an instance of 5 children being born to one mother all by different fathers. The identity of only two fathers is known for certain: of the others one is reputed to be a native American, but that is family legend, and probably not true; one is reputed to be Czech, but probably Polish; and the ...

Re: Empty boxes on a diagram

Oops, I did do a quick search but didn't pick up on earlier conversations about this. Illegitimate means, in my cases so far, child of an unnamed father before the mother marries, or the child of an unnamed father when the mother is married; Lorna's analysis is quite correct. If the empty box is hid...

I have just noticed that this behaviour only seems to occur if the child is added when the mother is recorded as married.

Empty boxes on a diagram

I have several instances of illegitimate children in my tree, and when I display, say, a descendent chart, the "fathers" for these children appear as empty boxes alongside the mother's box on the diagram. Rather than having to hide them every time I refresh the diagram (frequently if using AS), is t...

Re: Recorded sex

I was adopted, a fact I discovered in my teens, and which is no secret to anyone, either in my family or circle of friends. My mother didn't actually tell me until several years after I found out, and I didn't let her know that I knew until she told me. My adotive mother was married three times, and...

Re: Linking text added to a diagram with an individual

If by Connect option you are referring to the icon labelled Connect then that is the 'Family Connection Mapper' and has nothing to do with connecting lines and boxes. Yes, I had sort of worked that out :) Not being able to anchor added text with one or more individuals on a diagram is something of ...

Linking text added to a diagram with an individual

Is it possible to link or connect a manually added text note on a diagram to one or more specific individuals on the same diagram? The Connect option doesn't seem to work, and I can't seem to anchor lines to nodes on the individual's box and the text box.

Re: Relationship Pool

Thanks, Mike. My diagrams show all the families that I can identify as originating from a specific parish. Therefore I may have several families on a diagram where I cannot connect the root person of one family to the root person of another - at the moment.

Simple question, is there any way of including the relationship pool number in boxes on a diagram? I am working on a localised study where there are families that cannot be linked at the moment, so I have many different relationship pool numbers. I have these families displayed in a single diagram, ...

Re: Individual property box child death dates

I think, Mike, that you may have answered your own question with your reply, in that the focus window actually displays too much information. I am not interested in occupations, or multiple generations, or even burial or cremation dates; I wish to focus on a single couple, their children and their d...
