Re: Anyone else having problems with fH?

Should probably have waited for AskWoody's MasterPatchList (subscription service) to be updated, but I haven't had problems in years and got complacent.

Will wait for Woody's advice, and roll back if necessary.

Re: Living/Private

I use my method because it demonstrates that I do have a source, even if I'm not willing to publish details.

Re: Living/Private

Yes -- it would show up -- you can't mark an entire source as private. What I do is give the source a short title/long title such as Birth Certificate of X (stripped of all identifying details such as name, date, district etc, depending how sensitive they are). I enclose the Text from Source in [[ ]...

Re: What to call a person who is not a progenitor

Mike, most of the people involved are residents, so it's accurate but not specific.

Has anyone suggested Unrelated yet (as in no known Grimbarian relatives identified yet)?

Re: Obvious problem not staring me in the face

Mike, I only want the Sources for text items that have sources -- if the text item does not have a source (either because one isn't specified, or because one isn't allowed), I don't want its parent's source -- that isn't relevant.

Re: Obvious problem not staring me in the face

The #RN could be in any text field, including Fact note, Note record, Local note for an individual, Place note -- some of which can have sources, some of which (e.g. Place Note) can't.

Obvious problem not staring me in the face

Can I ask for a new pair of eyes on some code please? I've been staring at it so long I'm missing the obvious! The code below is correctly finding items containing a particular text string, but it is not finding the associated first source and linked repository pointers (where these exist). No doubt...

Re: Facts Tab

Alternatively:

Tools menu item > Preferences > general > Timelines Settings (button at bottom left). Turn off the ones you don't want or turn them all off.

Re: Running reports from lua

Some years ago, I wrote some code to splice elements from two different website generators into a set of output files organised/reordered in a way that made sense to me (also with some logic about including and excluding elements). It was a three-pass process: generate website A; generate website B;...

Re: Running reports from lua

I think Jane meant that you can define a website including the report wanted, and will end up with one html file per individual. No plugins involved. And if you have the right software, you can create pdf files in bulk from html files... (I won't recommend the programme I use because ti wasn't cheap).

Davidf, you're only getting older at the same rate as the rest of us.

Just a pity that the destination is closer for some of us.

Re: Ancestral Sources not updating FH6

John, how do you launch AS? There are two methods: one uses a plugin (Ancestral Sources Data Entry) and one launches it just like any other programme from e.g. you Start menu?

Re: Forcing an Iup text field to have a value

I do much the same, passing parameters in a table.

Unfortunately, in this case the boiler plate is not for simple iup fields, it's for a whole sub-system of config management...

I shall work it out. At least I know I haven't overlooked a mechanism I could explore.

Re: Forcing an Iup text field to have a value

I can use the close_cb callback, but that will involve changes to some boilerplate (with extensive retesting of 3 plugins.). Might be the only way though.

Hey ho.
