Re: Linked media files

OK. I guess I'm just too old school. If something happens to my google drive I will therefore lose everything. Since I have a NAS storage system I will continue to backup, but limit to weekly or monthly.
Thanks for all your help :)

Re: Linked media files

...Now having sorted all that and copied all linked files into the project folder, my backup has jumped from 10mb to a whopping 2.4Gb!"! I deleted the cache files and backed up again, and still the same result - it's huge!

OK. I see the light!
It's not particularly intuitive, but I now see the logic. Thanks for all your input :)

Re: Linked media files

..on second thoughts, it seems to be showing me all the files currently not linked, rather than the ones not linked correctly...?

Re: Linked media files

I have gone down the list and can't find any with a red cross, and I've downloaded and installed the Plugin, but that just gives me a complete list of my media files greyed out...? I must be having a really bad day, because I can't make any sense of that. Also, in the 'External File Links' dialog bo...

Re: Linked media files

I've done that, and it all looks OK, except for when it completed it said there were three broken links (out of over 6000) but didn't tell me what they were ... how do I find that out?

Re: Linked media files

Re: Linked media files

Yes, but I am assuming that would be yet another copy, and increase the project file size?

Linked media files

I link all my media files in lieu of copying them, and have now decided to change the location. To cut a long story short, I've always used 'One Drive', but that only gives 5Gb space free, and I'm runing out of space. Google Drive gives you 15Gb. I have copied all my files over and change the pointe...

Custom Query for witnesses

I'm trying to create a query giving me a list of witnesses, but can only get as far as obtaining the first witness in the list. How do I get all the witnesses? Also how would you get a composite list of Individuals and Name Only witnesses? I have columns: %FACT.DATE:COMPACT% =FactLabel(%FACT%) =Fact...

Re: FH 6.2.7 Randomly closing

I can confirm that FH does occasionally shut down whilst trying to access FMP hints. It never does it other than during this process, so I'm inclined to think there is a glitch between the two systems. If you try to update FMP hints too quickly for instance, it hangs, then bombs out completely. I do...

Re: Place and address sentence construction

I have closed and reopened the project, and checked the 'All' tab which now shows a place but not an address, and it works, so once again, a big thanks for the help. I would have thought, though, that there should have been a simple function key to update the empty field, like F5 or F9, but still, t...

Re: Adding notes to Named List

Thank you all - terrific responses as usual. That's just what I was looking for, although it wouldn't have seemed hard to me to add a label to that bottom pane to make it obvious.
Anyway - thanks again all :)

I have, and within the section on Named Lists, it suggests that you can 'Create and add a Note Record', but I can't see how?

Adding notes to Named List

I use Named Lists for, among other things, Records Office research, so I have lists such as 'Records Office - Bristol' for instance. Having entered multiple individuals into multiple lists, I find it difficult to get back to the original reason I put that person on the list in the first place. Notes...

Re: Installing on 2nd computer

Ah! Yes, I see where you're coming from. On my laptop I only have the 'Standard' Fact types. By that token, would you constantly need to update one computer from the other when adding custom fact types, or could you simply set the path to a common Fact Type folder on One Drive, for instance?

Display different set of fact types

I may open a can of worms here, but in my experience in the Christian church, a baptism takes place when a person is old enough to know their own mind and partake in the event, whereas a christening takes place when a baby/very young child is introduced to the church by parents/guardians... Anyway, ...

Re: Installing on 2nd computer

Yes, that's true, but in actual fact I only use the laptop for visits to records offices/libraries, etc., so don't generally need to change anything there - as long as the records synchronise on my return, I'm happy. :)

Re: Installing on 2nd computer

Thanks for the quick response - and it appears you can do it by downloading the demo file. I've done that now and it installed OK. I don't need to worry about the migration process, since all the data is on One Drive. Thanks again :)

Installing on 2nd computer

I'm sorry to rehash this old question, but all the subject matter I've seen on this forum seems to revolve around a CD install. I'm sure I installed onto my desktop PC from a download, but now can't find it (I've 'cleansed' my PC several times since). I do have the registry key, but not an installat...

Re: Create custom query - find correct fields

Again, thanks for the response - that's a very clear and concise explanation, although quite a lot to get my head around. I will take your suggestions on board and try to work my way through to see where I get.

OK. Thanks for the responses - perhaps I can rephrase to explain it better...

However, I split too, in that all GRO Cert...
