Re: fact display

Mike thanks for the Plugin reference that will ease the import and conversion.

Both Rootsmagic and FamilyHistorian are due out with new versions- momentarily? There may be some hope there that I will have new versions insync

English sources

I have been concentrating on my American ancestors that mostly emigrated between 1620 and 1660. Now I want to begin my research on my English ancestors and I am not finding much yet. Because of the time period being prior to 1660 most of my sources don't have much. Ancestry has very little from prio...

Re: fact display

Mike Thanks for your response. I have done some research pulling apart the various gedcom files and the FH project file and I see exactly what you are saying. I will need to structure my input to at least be consistent so that FH predictably makes even or _attr facts. Are there any FH downsides to h...

Re: fact display

Lorna, Thank you. I have been working with my gedcom file and all these facts are exported from Rootsmagic as Even facts. Some are exported with an Even descriptor which gedcom 5.5.1 seems to contradict itself on based on an article by Tamura Jones. Does the : reflect the fact that FH has imported a...

fact display

I have been working on trying to get all my data from Rootsmagic into an FH project. This process has not been easy and I have tried several workarounds to get the job done. It seems that most custom facts and their related sentence structure do not migrate well so I have tried creating duplicate fa...

Re: Cut part of FH screen image

Mike that worked perfectly.

Windows key + Shift + S lets me highlight what I want to cut and then I can paste it to where ever.

Cut part of FH screen image

This topic has probably been addressed before but I did not find any reference in the help or this forum. When I have an issue that I would like to post to this forum it would be nice if I could cut/copy a portion of the FH screen to use to illustrate my problem. I am using FH v 6.2.7 and windows 10...

Re: Diagram Box Size

Mike,

Is there a way to save my selected options not as a defaults or a particular chart but as a general set of options that I may want to use later?

I can see times where I may want the option of quickly selecting various options depending on what task I am performing or for whom.

Re: Change how and where a FACTYPE will appear.

Change how and where a FACTYPE will appear.

In several other applications I was able to take a fact type and easily make it appear or disappear in various outputs. TMG and Rootsmagic both have that capability. Is there any such capability in FH? I have created a custom fact that is only used with charts and I don't want it to be used in narra...

Re: Medical history in a chart

Mike,

Thank you.

I tried both methods and both worked. I will probably stay with the more complex statement since it makes the conditions under boxes easier to read.

FH continues to show it is the more robust of genealogical software packages.

I used auto to have that data entered into the text field for the census, I then saved it and FH and AS were aware that the other had ma...

Re: Importing from Rootsmagic

I probably put too much in my original question. It was not about either the EVEN tag or the importing errors. The question was once FH imports my data what can I do about the sentence that is generated? With a fact type I would edit the sentence structure in that fact type. What are the possibiliti...
