Re: Location glitch in FH7 Maps

Mike Tate
 

Helen,

As you have found it is important to include the country for all Place names.

Otherwise, how do auto-geocoders know where to look?

 

The Map Window deliberately does not automatically geocode just because you have changed the Place name.

If you had carefully set the Lati/Longitude and then made a small Place name change you would be most upset if it geocoded the Lati/Longitude to somewhere else.

 

Right-click the Place/Event in left-hand pane of Map Window and choose Geocoding > Remove Geocoding and then repeat with Refresh Geocoding

When using the new Maps function in FH7, it locates a number of my savided locations in the USA. Eg Chatham, Kent ,  or Holy Trinity Church, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire  locate to the USA.
If I edit the locations in FH, to add England at the end, the Map location does not automatically change, unless I delete the corresponding Latitude and Longitude , at which point it does update the map locator icon.

Hi All

I think the answer will be No, but can you fix the size of the Property box windows such that the Table is the dominant view. I’m constantly having the resize the windows to view all Table entries.

 

Thank you.

 

Kind Regards

Have you tried a right mouse click on the place and select Locate in Map after you have edited the Place details? You would be surprised how many UK place names are replicated in the US, Australia, Canada etc.

I completely agree, if you want reports, web pages, etc to tell the story you have to transcribe it.

Thank you Trevor. I appreciate your reply and have read before this is your preferred method. I want to do it this way to exploit all the new features. Individual Links, Rich Text formatting such as colour highlighting. Etc. Also going about it my way strikes a higher level of analysis in my opinion. I'm also using AS7 so it is not that heavy in terms of data entry.

Location glitch in FH7 Maps

Helen Dignum
 

When using the new Maps function in FH7, it locates a number of my savided locations in the USA. Eg Chatham, Kent ,  or Holy Trinity Church, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire  locate to the USA.
If I edit the locations in FH, to add England at the end, the Map location does not automatically change, unless I delete the corresponding Latitude and Longitude , at which point it does update the map locator icon.

There is a Calendar Report function in FH7 which details all the events on the individuals or set of ancestors you choose.

You can also find it the 21st century way as explained using the instructions below as posted earlier in this thread.

For FH V7 the activation code is definitely 21st century.

What I would advise is that you get an idea of the changes beforehand using things like the User Group Forum and Knowledge Base on  https://www.fhug.org.uk/ - that's what it's there for! Some of it might look a bit hairy, some of it you'll never use, but at least you won't be completely shocked!

Re: Finding Specific Dates

Jane Taubman
 

Out of interest another way to do this without using functions on a Fact Query is to simply add a filters on the DAY and MONTH_NUMBER qualifiers for the Date.  
e.g
Add if %FACT.DATE:DAY% = 25
Exclude Unless %FACT.DATE:MONTH_NUMBER% = 12
and of course you could tick the parameter option to get them to prompt you for the Day and Month you want.

That would have been your choice to opt for the physical product rather than the electronic download.

Re: Using Search & Replace causes Text from Source issues with Individual Links

Mike Tate
 

Yes, as usual, I am the cause of total confusion 😲

But in my defence, that comment was in the context of the original posting as it was prefixed by "
That change is more complicated than you realise for two reasons."
It was pretty clear that a Place record only existed for the old Place name and not the new Place name so changing every Fact would create a new Place record.
It is dangerous to take such contextual comments and generalise them.
I suppose I could have added a rider "unless there happens to be a Place record already in existence for the new Place name."
But decided that would over-complicate matters.
