Re: Narrative reports

Windows 11 is NOT beta software. What Mike was implying was that from what he's read, it is 'effectively' beta software.

Microsoft would NOT release beta software to the general public in the manner you received the update notice.

Many people prefer to leave major updates like this until issues get ironed out, which is what Mike is doing.

I have been on Windows 11 for several weeks, with no problems other than an odd interface on my Epson scanning software, but no doubt Epson will update to fix this in due course.

Best Wishes

I have done another narrative report (not the same person as before) I found that BMD certificates appeared on this one but no census images.

I wonder if I had added these BMD's directly to the person. That is not via Ancestral sources. So could the problem be with AS and Win 11? I can add the census image directly with no problem which is what I do with photos

I only upgraded to Win11 when a message appeared on my computer to upgrade. There was no indication that it was a beta version. If there was I wouldn't have upgraded.

I have tried to post an image on FHUG forum but haven't been able to do it. Tried to paste it. Nothing happened.

For the record all photos I have added via the person in the photo have all appeared on the narrative report

I very much doubt if Win 11 has anything to do with it.
Anyway, I am avoiding Win 11 as many gurus suggest it is effectively a beta release and not fit for purpose.

The fact that relinking the same image works OK also suggests it is not a Win 11 issue.

I've an inkling that I've dealt with that set of greyed out options before, but cannot recall the details.
Perhaps a screenshot would help, better in the FHUG Forum than here.

Thanks for your reply Mike

All my images are saved in media file folder in FH Projects folder. I have not moved anything. My FH Projects have been on One Drive for a long time and I have made no changes to location of folder.

I have checked external file links and they are all there.

I have checked my own birth certificate and prompting 'edit' the options to exclude the image from 'diagram ' 'report 'use link note as caption'
are all greyed out. I tried this on a census image with the same result

I have prompted 'use to existing media record' and was able to download the image and also use the above mentioned options. On that image I now have 2 of the same images. On the previous image the above mentioned options are still greyed out

The changes must have happened when upgrading to Win 11 has made this happen. Perhaps another shut down and open will sort this. I will do this later
