Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

:D :D :D :D I have just deleted the plugin and the plugin folder from the .dat folder. Downloaded the version from the first post. That has installed fine on my laptop running Crossover. The helpfile downloaded and runs. I don't believe that it is a Windows 7 problem as I updated my VM on my iMac ye...

Re: FH Version 7

If you do upgrade to Windows 10, download the appropriate version of Classic Shell (a free program - google for source URL) for either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows. I've used it problem-free since upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10 three years ago. It lets you change the UI to be nearly iden...

I extracted the zip file and copied the entire help file folder into the .dat folder. It works perfectly.

This is what I now have in the dat folder:

Re: Research Planner Version 2 -- request for beta testing

Colin, The version in the first post has been updated to use a different Help mechanism. It is that new Help mechanism that needs testing in your environment.

Sorry to be a PITA but I don't prefer either, both would be acceptable to me. I should have some time this afternoon to try the plugin on Crossover. I will let you know what I find.

Re: FH on "Microsoft Surface" machine

I did an experiment some while ago and successfully ran FH on a Linx Windows tablet running Windows 8 (IIRC) but as @Mike said it wasn't ideal due to the screen size. I stored the project on a micro SD card due to the limited built in storage.

That works fine.

Please note this is NOT a Crossover install this is a Virtual Machine install so is a full version of Windows. I have yet to try it on Crossover / PlayOnMac and will update you once I have.

Re: How to list Names that begin with Van ---

Edit the surname so that it looks like George Ernest /Van Allen/ Enclose the whole surname between the / (slash) and it will then display the surname properly. For single barrelled surnames you don't need to enter the slashes FH does it for you automatically.

Re: Exporting gedcom file to excel

It depends on exactly what you want to do with the file. If you give some more information then you may get a better answer. You can run a query and save the result of the query as a CSV file for use in Excel. It is what I do for my Surname Study website as I only want to display the basic BMD infor...
