Utility ~ TextPad Gedcom Syntax File


The TextPad Gedcom Syntax File allows a GEDCOM file to be spell-checked and the Family Historian extensions (user-defined tags) highlighted.

It is required to set up a TextPad Class for GEDCOM (*.ged) before proceeding; see the TextPad Help for instructions on how to do this.

Changes (20/11/07): Further Main and Minor user-defined tags added. Minor tags are in [Keywords 4].

To highlight the FH extensions, set Keyword 3 and Keyword 4 colours to different colours than Keywords 1 & 2 (e.g. red), to highlight the FH extensions.
