Family IDs and Reports/Diagrams

Having seen that David and I cross posted just thought I would add -
You can use the
Work With Record Identifers in the Tools menus to create custom IDs from the standard ones if you want.

Family IDs and Reports/Diagrams

On diagrams you can add custom IDs for Familys by adding another data reference such as
Spouse Family %FAM.REFN[1]%

I have tried to get the standard Id using =recordid(), but have been able to get the number displayed. I will try and take a longer look when I get some time.

Census amp; the Army

I think only Army members in the UK at the time of the census are listed. If you know details for Army Service, you can use http://www.regiments.org
to check for postings.

Clipped Diagrams

This has been covered over on the Mailing list at some point. It is to do with the way windows displays fonts rather than prints them. I think in you print the diagram it will be ok, I also believe it is something Simon was trying to improve for the next release.

Have you tried searching for a baptisum instead. My husbands GGGrandfather born 1861, did not seem to be registered, but I found his baptisum via the IGI, and a lady in Canada sent me the image of the page including the date of birth entered by the Vicar. I think some early registrations especially ...

New site layout

Thanks Peter, I wondered if anyone would comment. I thought it was about time for a renewal as the site has been going just over a year and has had over 20,000 visits, during that time. An average of 52 visits per day, and rising.

Changing Titles

If you use the add event on either the event tab on properties or on the record window, you will find there is a Cremation event. So when you want to enter a cremation use the add event method rather than completing the field on the main properties dialog.

Don't use copy, use Save As and save as a word or text file as you prefer. Then you can open the saved file. Fooled me as well that one, I did it myself last night[grin]

This is a new one on me. What printer driver are you using. It might be worth checking for the latest driver. If you add another line in the same position does the problem also occur. If you send the file to another printer or to PDF995 (link on the left) does the problem occur. If you manage to mak...

Another Printing Question

Not really. FH should retain the settings all the time. The easiest way I think will work is to save the 'big' diagram as a custom one and the normal one as a custom one and swap between the two, or simply use the diagram rows per page option to get the page size back. I will try and have a play whe...

I think there may be a limit, but I do know of people with 30,000 interelated individuals in their files with out problems.

So I do not think you will find a practical limit.

Windows separate on the task bar

I suspect this might be hard fought one. The MDI interface which Fh uses has the advantage of keeping the taskbar clear, personally I do not like the SDI format you are suggesting and from a coding point of view I don't think you can support both at once. As you point out you can open multi-copies o...

As PWE says a little more information would be helpful. If you are using the Report with select all. You can get them in reverse order simply by adding them all and then clicking on the date column. Otherwise you will need to create a query, sorted by birth date. Then add all the people using your n...

Occupation

You can choose.
On the Events Tab you can add as many occupations as you want.

I think the first occupation listed in the records window is the one which appears there.

Personally I keep my occupations by date, so the one on the properties dialog is the first occupation I know of.
