Re: Edit Saved Chart

Thanks Mike, As before, yes - I can retrieve the Saved Chart ... and I can see the handles so I can resize it ... but I cannot see how to actually edit it ... if I just click on the chart I get a Format screen .... I can even insert a new text box ... but I want to edit what is inside the original t...

Re: Edit Saved Chart

Thanks Jane,

Yes, I know, but this just brings up the saved chart ... but how do I edit it. I don't see how to do that.

Edit Saved Chart

Is it possible to edit a Saved Chart ? I created it via View/Standard Diagram Type/Blank Diagram ... then Diagram/Insert Into Diagram/Text Box .... then inserting text ... then back to Diagram/Insert Into Diagram/Picture. I saved the chart via Save Diagram As/Family Historian Chart. I now want to go...

Re: Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) report

Assuming the associated relatives are in your FH tree then Tools > How Related does produce such a Diagram . HowRelatedSharedAncestor.png Mike - I have been wondering how to do this. I know how to get the result of a "How Related" question as in the Tools/How Related question. But how do I move fro...

Re: Living Flag

Thanks Mike Tate (and you too Mike Loney),

Very useful. I have solved my problem thanks and also learned a bit more - as I have at last got around to using a Query to set a Flag on the Results if that makes sense.

Living Flag

I have read a lot of previous correspondence in this Forum re Icons, Flags - and the Living Flag in particular. However, I am still unsure about how it works .. if it actually "works" at all. I have just entered a Death Date for Person X. Surely, if there is a Death Fact, a Burial Place or a Probate...

Re: Deleting Role Witnesses

Thanks Mike, I ran the plugin Version 1.0 April 2016. It has removed the Marriage sentence re "Bride". There is now no marriage sentence at all for the Bride in the Ancestors by Generation Report - although the marriage sentence is retained correctly for the Groom. This may be the intention as they ...

I will come back and advise how...

All, Facts Tab for Catherine Pugh, Witnesses shows Thomas Pierce (Principal) Groom Catherine Pugh (Principal) Bride There are no other Facts for either of them with the same Date. In Tools/Fact Types/Marriage/Edit/Roles ... Bride is NOT listed and Groom is NOT listed. Hope that helps. John Snelson

Thank you Mike for that comprehensive reply. That makes it very clear.

Re: Ancestor and Descendant List Creation

Another possibility perhaps (and so as not to waste your time, I have looked this up in the HELP facilities and in OTHER places), is to use flags. If a flag is set for say "Blood Relatives" already as it was set up in TMG before importing into FH, can that flag be used as a filter together with the ...

Jane - thanks. I understand what you suggest and have tried that. Yes, you get the list in the free text page, but it doesn't seem to create an entry in the Index - as it is just "free text". Mike - I understand the PDF and PNG procedure. Again, I understand how this will produce a list in the book ...

Further,

If I follow a hint that appears from FMP on my FH site, and I am signed into FMP as a paid up subscriber, why can't I down load an image via a right click and save as a jpg ? Any suggestions ?

Publish Book

In the Publish/Book feature, the Individual Narrative option creates an Individual Report which is fine, but it throws to a New Page to print the Sources for the information. This just creates a lot of space, like in some case most of a whole page, which looks really like it is disconnected. How can...
