AS Splash Screen

Just noticed that the Splash screen (or intro screen) used when running the Ancestral Sources Data Entry Plug-in, still says V4.7, even though I am running 5.3.

Emigration Fact

I've been doing quite a lot of editing of the Emigration and Immigration facts. Now that I've finished, I've spotted an issue I just want to check. I've created an emigration for a lady, and added her husband, and her brother as fellow travellers. In the Individual Records window, the lady has an em...

Re: FH7 Looks?

I made nor make no comment on the number, I was just interested in what size the company was.

As you say, unit price is not high.

Re: Military Service & Sources

I suspect like some users, I have no real plan for output. My challenge is the hunt for data, and the ability to source/verify it.

Military Service & Sources

I'd like to follow up a post by Helen in this topic. 17791|New user requesting confirmation that I am following best practice I like the idea of dealing with military service in the way she suggested, as it seems to simplify matters significantly.

Deleting Media

I needed to delete a few Media today and spotted a strange behaviour. 2020-05-30_10-07-13.jpg When I click on the red X, the pop-up dialog box appears, and the focus is on the top box "Unlink only". Since I wanted to delete, I pressed the down arrow on the keyboard, but the result was that the focus...

Thanks for the answer and the explanation.

aka & Focus window

Is there any way for the Focus Window (or the Property Box) to display any AKA names. Whilst many of these aka's are obvious (eg Bob for Robert), many are not (eg Dick as an aka for George, Bobby for Henry as two brothers out of 6 all but 1 with obscure aka's) and I can never remember who is who in ...

Re: Query window - Columns

Hi

Thanks for the response!

You were absolutely spot on in your thinking. I can go and delete it now. I set it up when I was adjusting Sentences. I will check it is not used anywhere before I delete.

Many thanks.

By chance, I've spotted that in the Individual Events section of the Query Window, I have two similar entries titled Death & Death 2.

Re: Emigration Sentence template

I have had a response from Calico Pie regarding the initial issue of a short form for place. Their solution seems to work The FACT tag only allows reference to tags which are common to all fact types - which _PLAC is not. So _PLAC is not supported as a sub-tag of FACT in a data reference.

I have reported the inconsistency as a bug.

I have also registered the issue that there should be no Override Templates included at installation, and that if an override is in use, it should be highlighted clearly on the relevant screen.

Re: Emigration Sentence template

Sorry, but you are conflating the two problems here. The first point is related to the use of Short place name for the two places in the Emigration fact. You have confirmed that the bug report should be extended to confirm the issue in the overide for the principal fact. I will report that as well. ...
