Re: Fact Title Problem

That's it, problem solved. There was a strange override text in there!

Thanks

Re: Fact Title Problem

Managed to get back to this issue. As I was heavily involved in the topic you linked to, I would have been disappointed if it was as simple as that. As far as I can see, it looks as it should do. James Christina 1.jpg The image does not show the whole text, so here it is. {individual} died <of '{cau...

Fact Title Problem

I've ended up with an odd error and I can't see how to correct it (short of deleting the fact and re-adding it.) I entered a death using AS, and the husband was entered as a witness. However in his timeline, it is appearing as "Birth/Death of Wife Christina zzzzzz". Christina 1.jpg I can't remember ...

COM Error

Not sure if this is the right forum to post this, but I was using the Ancestral Sources Data Entry Plugin when this error arose, however the dialog box is titled Family Historian! I'm away from home in a place with patchy WiFi. I'm using AS by running the plugin from within FH. Several times, I've h...

Re: Improving Accessibility of Commonly Requested Help

I haven't had any time over the last couple of days (or over the next week) to add my bit, but usability must be the basis of any changes. I'm a new user with only 2 to 3 years experience, but I have bought the Calico Pie book, and have read many pages in the KB. I'm also pretty computer literate as...

Re: Death Witness Role - Doctor

It has to be more than that. I had already tried removing the first {individual}. as that was my suspicion

But, if you take the bare bones example in my second post, if I remove the first code, I still get an error.

Re: Death Witness Role - Doctor

My next test was to simplify the whole thing, and start with <{individual's}> on its own. That worked. I then added {role=doctor}. That worked. I then copied and pasted both working codes, removed the middle <> and I get an error.

Death Witness Role - Doctor

Is there something special about the Death Witness Role for Doctor. I've started with the following code {individual} died <of a {cause},> {date} <at {address}> {place} {age}.< {individual's} doctor was {role=doctor}. > This generates a sentence error as follows Death dr 1.jpg If I then change to {i...

Re: Scottish Birth Certificate Fact Creation

OK, like all that.

I've added a couple of words in the last para. I suspect most users will not have looked at that screen in AS, so just making clear it is an AS option, as the terms are FH ones.

Almost there?

Re: Scottish Birth Certificate Fact Creation

I think it needs two headings at Headline Level 2. Agreed (and done). Possibly there should be a single Define Fact Witness Role heading to avoid repeating essentially the same instructions and include the Facts Tab Format advice. I did consider that, I also considered whether a totally new page sh...

Re: Burial Fact Sentence

Had a reply as follows
Thank you I have made a note for the developers, in the meantime if you select another fact and return to the Fact it will update the sentence, there is no need to close the Witness box to do this.

Re: Scottish Birth Certificate Fact Creation

Thanks for that extra info.

I'm possibly interested in having a go at "Contribute your Knowledge" to update this. Can I have a go and send it to you for correcting?

I won't be able to look at it till the middle of next week tho.

Excellent, they get corrected when the Role definitions are added. That is the whole purpose of Tools > Fact Types that customises all the Fact and Role displays. I had not appreciated that existing Role definitions would change when I add the Role definition. I suspected that the "Role display" was...

Re: Burial Fact Sentence

I think Adrian has got the answer! It does seem as if adding a witness, does not cause a refresh in the Sentence text automatically. As he suggests, the act of making an edit to the code in the Sentence text on its own, seems to have forced the refresh. So the issue was nothing to do with adding a s...
