Re: User Defined shortcuts

It is not clear why you need to redefine the root person to get to their record.

There are numerous ways of easily finding a record, especially via the Records Window filters.

Perhaps, you are talking about opening FH with a particular record in focus.

There is the ‘Create Individual Shortcut’ Plugin that supports that via Desktop Shortcuts for each Individual you choose.

Subject: [family-historian] User Defined shortcuts


is it possible to set up user defined shortcut keys in FH? As well as for family history I am using FH to record master data for a one name study. As it is not designed really for this type of study which initially at least throws up a lot of unlinked individuals I find myself constantly having to redefine the root person to get to their record. It would be good If I could set up a shortcut or function key allowing me to redefine root directly from the individuals list without going via a seperate menu. Is this possible?
