Re: Working with Lists

You have the same issue that I had when I went to check
When you click the link and the right edge shifts you should notice that there is an extra wide line on the right
If you move over this it should change into the symbol (like a divide sign on its side) that enables you to expand and contract sub-windows
Click the left mouse button when it is there and drag to the left – your pane should appear

Subject: [family-historian] Working with Lists


I am trying to get to grips with lists and flags as a way of assisting some quick searches etc. I am sure I am doing something daft ( as I usually am) so it seemed asking on here was the easiest way to solve my problem.

I have created a couple of new lists and my understanding is that once I am in the records window I can view a lists pane by clicking on the list pane button in the ribbon at the top. When I do this the button shows that the list pane is active and I see the right edge of the records window shift just a small amount to the left ( a fraction of a millimeter) but no list pane appears. I have tried rearranging the active windows by cascading and tiling but still cant get the list pane to become visible.

I,m clearly just miising something simple.

thanks as always
