Patricia, have you read the "Notes on Upgrading to Version 7"?
Those concerns ONLY apply to SOURCE record customised tabs, because the Source Citation features in FH v7.0 have significantly changed.
All other Property Box custom tabs are not a problem.
Thank you Mike, your help is much appreciated. I now have the confidence to give it a go.
It was the information below from a member in an email 10 Dec that put me off - the bit about settings being lost.
"Most of my customizations to the Record Window, Property Box and Source Box
have disappeared. I have read the "Notes on Upgrading to Version 7" about
restoring Property Box customizations and I was working my way through them
until I reached items marked 1, 2, & 3 which, after telling me what could be
done, then strongly recommended that I don't do it because settings will be
lost somewhere else. I am now completely bemused and confused. "

I don’t understand why somebody would advise against the advice from Calico Pie in their Help pages.
Maybe you are confusing that with some other process.
Anyway, you will not lose any FH v7 features whichever way you recreate the custom Property Box tab.
Thank you Mike. I saw an email from a member of this group saying they tried this but were advised against it. I'm not particularly bothered about the missing tab and I can set it up again should I need it, but I am concerned I would lose some of the special feature so vs7 in the process. The other customisations I made to the Property Box have been retained.

Patricia, you can retrieve your customise Property Box tab by following the advice in the FH Help > Family Historian Help > Notes on Upgrading to Version 7 under Important Notes on Restoring Property Box Customizations.
So far I haven't found any problems with FH7 except there's a customised tab missing from my Property Box, but that's not really important.
