Re: PDF file output is not enabled (once again)

Thanks Jane - that worked.
I have no idea how I managed to install the full version - it's likely I was half asleep when I followed those instructions previously.....

PDF file output is not enabled (once again)

I realise this issue had been reported numerous times over the last few years, and have read the details, however despite applying the suggested fixes this is still an issue. Using the alternate means of printing to pdf using the Family Historian PDF the file saved, when viewed in Acrobat reader, sh...

Re: Surname changes

Hi Mike When you say the different NAME is recorded in the Source details, where are you referring? Is this the modification of auto text within Ancestral Sources or in the Sources section in the properties box for the associated Fact in the Individuals record, or somewhere else? Kind regards Margaret

Re: Surname changes

Many thanks to both Adrian and Mike for their advice, which is greatly appreciated. I've already added the alternate names in the Main tab for Individuals, as per the knowledge base article. I like the idea of custom fields with dates when changes are noticed, e.g. census years/marriage date etc. I ...

Surname changes

Hi I'm looking for advice on the best way to record/document changes in surnames in Family Historian v6, other than on marriage. Also should the individual be listed with the surname of the father, the surname registered at birth, the surname noted in the baptism or the surname from one of the censu...

Re: Entering Fractions

Ok, sorry I've found out how to do this - by opening the properties menu, choosing character map then select the required character, copy and paste where required.

Entering Fractions

Is it possible to enter fractions in text in Family Historian v6.2.7, e.g. when entering values as £ s d to include halfpenny and farthing? If so, how do I do this? This would be in the notes and in a custom fact.

Thanks for any advice on this

Re: Problems with Book saved as PDF

Thanks for the suggestions. The images are those listed in Sources, I have set them for large images but, as before, some are missing. Unless I am mistaken, it is not straight forward to save just a subset of pages from the book? I did try modifying the Print to FH PDF to print just a few pages, whi...

Problems with Book saved as PDF

I have used the Publish Book feature in Family Historian v5.0.9 which has 331 pages including media. This displays OK on screen but when I save as PDF then several of the media images do not appear in the PDF file. I tried changing the printer in Family Historian to FHPDF before saving again, but im...

Census details span more than one image

Hi Peter& Mike,

Brilliant - I had missed this option when I edited the book settings. A case of not actually reading what you see!

There is an option called Max Pics per source in both report options and book settings.

Many thanks for solving this for me.

Kind regards
Margaret

Census details span more than one image

Hi, I have a Census source record, created via Ancestral Sources, which has 2 images, as the family spans more than one census page. When I use 'Publish' Book in Family Historian v5.0.7, only the first image is shown. I have checked the source record and there are 2 media records attached which are ...
