Re: Computer Crash

Derek Have you been doing a backup of your FH project on exit of the programme as prompted? If so then you can restore your backup and make that your working project. If not and Tribal Pages Gedcom is the only way to go then you can always bulk edit the TP Gedcom with something like Notepad++ doing ...

Re: FH5 running under Crossover on Mavericks - no text on re

No problems for me either.

I would suggest a new 'bottle' following the instructions exactly in the Knowledgebase.

Jerry You have gone a little too far. Click on the source record at the top of the tree as about 58 seconds into your video, don't go down the tree to the entry about the image.

Re: Migrate from The Master Genealogist (TMG)

As you use Notepad++ to edit your Gedcoms may I suggest that you get the free Gedcom plugin for Notepad++ it makes navigation within the file much easier as well as doing syntax highlighting. As to pricing that is a commercial decision. I am happy to pay the current amount as I think it is excellent...

Craig,

Ancestral Sources has the ability to add an image to an existing source, may be worth exploring.

Re: FH-v5 AS-v4 WinXP Crossover & Wine Bottles

I have AS set to close after data save. Back to FH get the file changed warning and accept FH updates fine. This crashes FH: Op...

Re: FH-v5 AS-v4 WinXP Crossover & Wine Bottles

Removing the Nova PDF printer does not crash so imho it is the preferred option to doing nothing as Gerry describes when it is enabled. If Save Report/Diagram As > PDF File is selected without the driver installed FH fails gracefully saying that no pdf driver is installed. There maybe a better pdf p...

Re: FH-v5 AS-v4 WinXP Crossover & Wine Bottles

Ah this maybe where Gerry is going wrong I don't use the dialog in that way.

I select file > print then chose the printer (my default is my colour laser) and then select print. I don't use the Save Diagram/Report As > PDF File I let the pdf printer deal with it.

Gerry To save space you can delete the FH PDF printer as that doesn't work and FH continues to function perfectly without it. I recommend Firefox rather than IE and I always download using Mac to get any apps or plugins etc. DO NOT use IE inside the bottle for downloading as it can lead to some of t...

The odd thing here is that I don't have Net3 installed in my Bottle just Net 2 and it works fine (see the earlier post with the screenshot of what my bottle contains).

This is definitely something odd with your Bottle.

I can save and restore AS settings on my Mac without issue. It works exactly the same as on my PC.

I will look to see if I can package my Bottle up for you.

Thanks for the updated plugin. Downloading it now.

Sorry I did not answer your questions specifically. If they were different the 'Tidy Places' that I did probably sorted it, anyway in the end I merged them as they were duplicates. Sorry that I ran the update before I answered your question.
