If you search FH Help for "dots", one of the Topics is the (relevant) "Property Box: Facts tab" which includes:
blue dots for Individual records and red dots for Family records

Re: Orienting certificate images

I find I can solve all such problems by using the free IrfanView; it can rotate images, either singly or as a batch, and can optionally correct the EXIF data.

Re: Cannot start Family Historian

And I never have any problems running FH v6.2.7 with AVG AntiVirus Free on Windows 10 Pro version 2004. And my AVG has no exceptions for FH at all.

The standard allows only a single line of up to 248 characters: SOURCE_CITATION: = [ n SOUR @<XREF:SOUR>@ /* pointer to source record */ {1:1} +1 PAGE <WHERE_WITHIN_SOURCE> {0: 1 } … WHERE_WITHIN_SOURCE: = {Size=1: 248 } Specific location with in the information referenc...

Re: AS download

I've just checked my version of Ancestral Sources and it was v5.2.0 ; the Help menu Check for Updates… gave 'You already have the latest version of Ancestral Sources.' I've now used the link in the Knowledge Base to update to v5.3.0 . I've had a quick look for a post in FHUG about the update to v5.3...

Re: Deleting Media

The only way to cycle through the thee buttons seems to be to use the Tab key, or Shift+Tab to go the other way (not necessarily the way you expect, though!).

Re: Sharing a note

You can link media to any Source that is linked to the Note Record, but not to the Note Record itself.

Re: Moving in Ancestors view

The Preferences dialogue for the Focus Window (accessible via Customize View… ) has Max. Ancestor Generations (space permitting): but if you try to enter a value greater than 5 an error box tells you to “Enter an integer between 2 and 5.” Earlier versions of FH did not have the Focus Window, and man...

It may not be PC on this forum, but I dont want my source images or family photos located within fh as no one else in the family owns fh software.
Storing images and family photos in folders within the FH Media folder would not prevent access by a user without FH software.

Re: "Cannot load file" error

I was able to load the file OK; it took several minutes and generated a massive exception report, but no error messages. FH Focus Window at bottom right has: Individuals: 879234 Families: 305277. My 9-year-old laptop has 6 GB RAM and I recently upgraded (free) from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

There are also left and right arrow-heads beside the Page no. at top right, which may be more useful than the right-hand scroll-bar.

Re: GEDCOM Exporting Data Does Not Contain Data Just Imported

If you want everything in an FH GEDCOM file to be available for Import to something else, you don't need to do an Export at all. Just Import the FH GEDCOM file.
