Re: Backup and Restore FH Settings via Windows - new plugin

I have some comments/questions regarding the Plugin Store version. When a Backup is made to a previously used backup folder the plugin provides the date of the previous backup. However, after the backup completes the fhProgramData and fhAppData folders still have the original date, so they don't ref...

Re: Census Witness

Chris, the answer is exactly the same as for the Census case. The structure of multiple facts all citing the same Source record is just the same. It is the same for any circumstance where multiple people are involved and share the same Source Citation. The only distinction is whether the people are ...

Re: How can I use a quarter date in a custom query?

Yes, the limitation is that the GEDCOM specification does not allow Quarter Dates in its Date formats. In FH, under the hood, it always uses the Range Date format 'btw Mmm yyyy and Mmm yyyy' format. The Quarter Date format option is purely a superficial user interface enhancement. Yes, you can enter...

you add a Sort Date (using the 'All' Tab) for each Registration entry to ensure they are sorted into the correct order. You don't need to use the All tab. Just use the Date Entry Assistant . i.e. Double-click the Date box or single-click the [...] button at its righthand end. Tick the Separate Sort...

Re: Search and Replace plug-in error

Thanks Jean. That confirms my diagnosis. The plugin was meant to find the trailing parentheses and extract the data reference: FAM.EVEN-CHILD_BORN_F But the extra parentheses (f) confused it and prevented it from detecting that Family ( FAM ) records were involved. The fix is quite simple and will b...

Re: How can I use a quarter date in a custom query?

Presumably, you are hoping to manipulate Facts so I guess you are using a Fact type of Query. Therefore, in the Columns tab, in the Fields pane, there is Fact - Date item that gives the %FACT.DATE% data reference. If you are using an Individual type of Query, then in the Columns tab, in the Fields p...
