Re: Check for Unlinked Relatives or Individuals

Create a new individual query.
On line two add : "=RelationPool(%INDI%)"
Those not in Pool 1, should be orphans.

I found this by going on the 'Help menu'.

Query for source certainty assessment

Hi,

I'm looking for a simple query which shows the source certainty assessment note field for each fact.
Would someone please point me in the right direction whether it's a source query, fact query, individual query; along with the query label.

Thanks.

Record Window - Timeline of family events affected by adding Witness event

Hi, Apologies if this has already been brought to the forum members before. Normally, in a person's records window, you would see the shaded lines, for example, their mother's/father's deaths . Which I think is great. When you add Witnesses to an event using the 'gear'symbool. The event name is then...

Re: Query for source note

Hi Mike,

Yes. The query type is 'Individual'.

Sadly, there was no way back for the hard drive, the MS tool wasn't able to repair the problem, so I've lost some data and settings. A harsh lesson.

Thanks for your help Mike - i'll give a whirl.

It's been painful to re-set a number of customised settings (i.e. diagram boxes based on individual's flags, etc.) What I would love to see is the settings for customised columns on the records list saved, by default to the user...
