Re: Military service records

If you want a very simple approach, add a Military Service fact to the individual with the relevant date range; support it with a source or sources linked to the images -- one source if it's a single document in four images, four sources if it's four separate documents with an image each. Maybe incl...

You certainly won't be allowed to use Blu-tack or white tack at an Archive, but they should have the lead weights available.

But.... we were talking about the Media folder when you gave your advice.

The pathname length however is a very good point.

Re: Media folder

I believe that Windows performance is slowed when there are too many files in one folder. So if you expect to have thousands of FH Media files, then Media subfolders are good for efficient performance. Not necessarily true -- depends on what you're doing. If you're viewing them in Windows explorer,...

Re: Media folder

I'll add that I'm increasingly thinking that I can have a flat structure in my Media folder , or probably just divide it into a few folders: 1. Photos (images of people and places) 2. Sources (images pdfs etc of source documents) 3. Interviews (written or oral records of interviews with family membe...

Re: New Multifact plugin

Mike, I've now had a chance to do some detailed testing and I spoke too soon. Snag 1: on a large (3340x1440) screen the plugin overflows the bottom of the screen -- can be easily fixed by setting the start window position. Snag 2: The plugin window flickers repeatedly when moved, resized or when an ...

Re: New Multifact plugin

Thanks, Ron.

I've dropped this into user.lua and it seems to have done the trick -- hasn't changed the default but added fh_lua

Code: Select all

local luaspec = ide.specs.lua
luaspec.exts[#luaspec.exts+1] = "fh_lua"

then when its height is adjusted the top-left & top-right corners of the window stay put So, the height changes? That would break some working layouts.

Re: New Multifact plugin

the resizing only adjusts the height; the position & width stay put.
You keep missing the point -- adjusting "only" the height isn't acceptable. It completely messes up a carefully constructed windows layout.

What happens (for example) if you snap the plugin top-right?

Re: New Multifact plugin

The extension thing drive me nuts -- if you use a decent Lua IDE, fh_lua isn't an option.... so I have to save the file with a different extension. Grrr.

Try this.

Re: New Multifact plugin

Yes, in your terms Aero snap-- although docked is a more generic term. The problem also exists if you have a monitor with 'windows display management settings' -- I can for example set my screen to have six windows in a grid -- or one full height window on one side and two half-height windows on the...

Re: New Multifact plugin

Mike,

With your suggestions, changing the state of an expander on a docked window undocks the window and changes position height and width -- any of which would be unacceptable without the user requesting them.

Mike, do you have a scenario in which you'd want to attach a Research Note to a Citation rather than a Fact or a Source? For any Record type, adding multiple Local Notes or Shared Notes to the record works. It is an issue for the notes associated with Facts -- not because you can't have multiple Not...

Transcribe exactly as the document says it -- in an ideal world: don't correct, don't add, don't subtract.

The answers to this question on Genealogy.Stackexchange.com may help -- there are fairly-widely used conventions for denoting text that you've added or text you can't read.
