Re: Feeling stupid...again...

To me, because it's highlighted, and I opened AS from Sarah's FH profile, on her death fact, I assumed it already knew and had added her. If just highlighting someone added them it would cause all sorts of issues - for example you may highlight someone because you want to add a parent, or child to ...

Re: Feeling stupid...again...

I think it's fairly standard behaviour in any type of software to have to select a record by from a list and choose the record by clicking a button or by double-clicking it. AS is then warning you that you already have a death fact recorded for this person (Great Yarmouth in May 1919) and is making ...

Re: Source Records

How can I list the source record numbers from 1 to say 3000 and show what each one says? It seems that at some point AS has added the whole address including town, county and country in the address line as well as in the place line? If I can see each one I can amend it. AS just records whatever you...

I've implemented the 'fill down' and therefore this will be in the next version.

Re: Where Born

Yes I agree with that but just seems more convenient to have a drop down arrow in my opinion. Also I wonder if there is a shortcut method of finding most used sources? I won't be adding a drop-down list of places for the reason that Mike suggested. Some people have 10s of thousands of place records...

Re: Ancestral Sources v7.4 available to test

Yes, it appears to be an annoying issue with Visual Studio if I compile on my laptop rather than desktop PC, because it is on 125% scaling. If I compile exactly the same code on the desktop PC the scroll bars appear. So I'm aware of that now and will try to remember to check this in future before I ...

Re: Census Template 1861 Scotland

I don't have any Scottish census entries in my own family tree and for the Scotland templates that I included in AS v7 onwards I think I just included the ones from the Knowledge Base which have the date as 8th April 1861. I can't remember who uploaded those templates, but I expect they've been ther...

Please see the first post in this thread for a link to new v7.4.4. I'm hoping this will resolve the issue you've reported David. Please can you confirm when you get a chance?

Re: Ancestral Sources v7.4 available to test

Is it possible you copied some of the source text including hyperlinks to individuals, into the note text in AS for one of your entries? I can reproduce that error if I do that because AS isn't expecting to find linked individuals in the note. I'd suggest closing AS and then FH run the File->Validat...

Re: Ancestral Sources v7.4 available to test

I have had a go at creating a new template for the Australian Electoral Roll. Initially, on creation, the template editor insisted on there being a full date given, However, when I went back to edit to make adjustments, I could delete the date to leave it blank, and that was OK. Hi John I think the...

Re: Ancestral Sources v7.4 available to test

Not sure if this is a bug, editing tables in auto text I find that removing a column changes the font colour from black to blue. This happens in most templates though the results are often okay. Its not a great problem as I can edit it in FH. Maybe other users have found this & can offer a differen...

The thumbnail only appears when you've added them to the entry, not at the stage where you've just selected it initially.

Yes - I uninstalled the 32 bit version and ran the new 64-bit installer and it installed and ran the application correctly.
