Re: possible to delete field definitions?

Thanks, Mike - I just right-clicked there and assumed there would be a delete option. I did delete the field over in my actual Template Definition, but, as you said, the Compare/Sync feature, doesn't handle that well.

OK - got it done!!

Thanks again!

possible to delete field definitions?

I have a customized template and want to delete a couple of the field definitions but can't find any place to do that. Once created, are we stuck with them forever?

Re: Feeling stupid...again...

Hi Nick, Thanks for the additional information. What you say makes sense - my mind just works differently :lol: . Now you've explained it to me, I see what you mean. I have yet to figure out how to apply my own edited templates from FH (tried, but failed) to give me my Strathclyde citations, but tha...

Re: Feeling stupid...again...

Thanks for the feedback. And yes, I know part of the issue is me not using AS consistently - just dipping in and out so I don't establish a workflow. It didn't help yesterday that I had a crashing headache while trying to work in AS - my pain and frustration came through in my post and was directed ...

Re: Feeling stupid...again...

Nick, To me, because it's highlighted, and I opened AS from Sarah's FH profile, on her death fact, I assumed it already knew and had added her. My other confusion is that I assumed I was creating the source/citation in AS and attaching it to an existing fact, NOT creating the fact in AS. It might se...

Feeling stupid...again...

Each time I try to use AS, I get almost all the way through and then get thrown for a loop. I launched AS from Sarah Blundell Hills profile in FH7, from her death fact. Created (or so I thought) the death entry - got to the point where I THOUGHT I was finished and clicked save, then AS tells me I ha...

Re: Surname prefix (SPFX) -- more generally, handling structured names.

This isn't something I see in my own family - it's generally just first and last name, sometimes a middle name - often with declensions, but not the gens/Clan name you cited. There are diminutives used within the family, but not on records. Of course, the furthest of gotten back with any degree of c...

Re: Surname prefix (SPFX) -- more generally, handling structured names.

But would it really be for one? I'm a user of FH and recently have made it my key software of choice for my tree. I have many Polish names in my tree and as my research goes further back, hopefully, at some point, I may find some Prussian names that will include a von or other prefix. As two other s...

Re: text copied from citation window...

So, the screen font scaling is definite the problem...very frustrating. Can anyone think of a way around this? Is it worth raising the issue with CP, though I'm not really sure there's much they can do? I might just have to pick my poison, so to speak.

Thanks,

Hmmm...I did wonder if the Screen Font Scaling was the culprit, as I already have the font in the property box set to TNR 14... unfortunately, I really need that scaling as otherwise the fonts in some windows are just too small to be comfortable. I will experiment anyway, just to verify that it is i...

Your could try a format-less paste (often Ctrl-Shift-V)?

text copied from citation window...

A bit of an odd question, but I've noticed when copying a citation from the side panel and pasting into a word processor document (I use Atlantis, but it happens in Word as well), the font is very big - as in 16.5! I then have to highlight and reduce the font size. Each and every time. I haven't see...
