Re: Showing ancestor ages in Focus Window

If you know a person has died, you can (and perhaps should?) add a Death event, without any details such as Date, Place, Source if those details are unknown. Then FH won't calculate an Age as if the person is still alive.

Re: Changing the status of a Place that is currently Tentative

Yes, and a tick in the box does not imply selected. Multiple records can be selected as usual by using shift or ctrl plus enter.

Re: Can Fact Definition Auto-Create Note create a multi-line note?

You can type the required data instead, but you need to use ctrl+enter rather than enter to get a new line.

Re: Can Fact Definition Auto-Create Note create a multi-line note?

I just copied what you wanted from your post above into the Auto-Create Note field and it worked OK with one item on each line in the Note when I added the relevant fact to an individual.

Re: TMG UK Census Fact Definition

I never use Family Census events, i.e. GEDCOM tag CENS subordinate to tag FAM , for the following reasons. Such a census event may be interpreted as applying to 0 or 1 HUSB Individual records, plus 0 or 1 WIFE Individual records, plus 0 or many CHIL Individual records, all linked to the FAM record. ...

Re: Override Template for Facts tab Listings for Marriage

I find that e.g. MARRIAGE - {%CUR_PRIN2%} - {place} gives: MARRIAGE - Fred BLOGGS - England, … St Bartholomew CE to Annie HORRIDGE It is as if FH always adds to {%CUR_PRIN%} at the end of the specified template; this seems the wrong way round since FH Help has "Other or second principal (i.e. equiva...

Re: Multiple Names

In FH you can use the All tab of the Property Box or the Records Window to add as many names as you like, and each Name can have a link to a Source and a link to a Note.

Re: Exporting to Gedsite format problem

The following (edited) extract from my FH GEDCOM file illustrates that it is perfectly possible to record a Marriage event when neither date nor place of the marriage is known, and without inventing an approximate date: 0 @F150@ FAM 1 MARR Y 1 HUSB @I161@ 1 WIFE @I164@ 0 @F151@ FAM 1 MARR 2 DATE BET...

Just add a Marriage Event to the relevant Family Record in FH. This will appear in the GEDCOM file as 1 MARR Y.

I have the same result as John when using Print… rather than Save Report as… with the filename defaulting to project name rather than the desired report name.

Yes, since all the names are in any case bold, it would be clearer if you change the wording as you suggest above.

Re: Modifying the sentence field produces inconsistent results in reports

Surely all nine Record Detail Reports are intended merely to show the values in all of the fields for each record of the particular type. This would naturally include whatever has been input by the user into the Sentence field.

Re: Quick Child/Family Snapshot

These two examples have multiple spouses for the Father, with two the same colour (black). Thus the colour does not show which (black-coloured) spouse is the mother of the Root's (black-coloured) half-sibling(s). In one case the marriage and birth dates obviously help. If it is difficult to use more...

Thanks for latest version, Mike. It would be even better if the colour black (which is used for spouses in most panes) could be avoided for half-siblings, as illustrated.
