Ah! No Jane, I didn’t. Thank you. (Probably because I put photo in the search box rather than picture!) Will go away and read and inwardly digest... ;)

Adding photos when creating a book

I've just started creating a book in the publishing section. I've added an individual summary report to start my mum's biography and have worked out how to add "free text" ( I assume ito "cut 'n' paste" s the best way to import what I've written from an external source - i.e. Word file?). But I'm co...

Re: Given name used

Thank you for your useful comments. Mike. The principle does make sense, I must admit! I’ll go and get familiar with the Newbie information. ;)

Re: Given name used

Thanks, Peter. Yes, I did see that but it didn’t clarify which “status” was displayed in the focus window. My late father’s full name was Percy John Shelley, but he only used his full name for documentation and was always known as John Shelley. So to see his full (unfamiliar) name in the main displa...

If I prefer to see the name he/she would be commonly known by displayed in the focus window, is the only way to do that by entering it as an “alternative ...

Re: Duplicates which aren't duplicates

Oh, thank you, John and Lorna! I knew it must be something straightforward. John’s initial suggestion did set me on the right track so although I couldn’t initially find the “wrong” parents, I did learn something in the process! Now all seems to be correct. Your help is much appreciated! :D

Duplicates which aren't duplicates

I've imported an updated GEDCOM of my Ancestry tree into FH (6.2) and merged it to a previous project, but an error has occurred, in that I've got those looped ribbons attached to a group of ancestors who appear twice (once in the right place and then again on the top of the tree), as though they're...
