Thanks so much Mike. There is no CD drive on the new laptop, so I am on the back foot from the start. Although you say it's straightforward, as a dinosaur, it's very daunting to me. What would you suggest is best with no CD drive please.

Jan,

You cannot now buy FH V6 and you cannot simply ‘delete’ an installed program like FH V6.

The error message is not as serious as it sounds and re-installing FH V6 should fix it.

 

So I suggest you install the FH V6.0 CD on this new laptop the same way you installed it on your old laptop.

You will need to update to the latest free download of FH V6.2.7 from the Family Historian web site.

Then you can load the data saved on your USB and get FH V6.2 running in the way that is familiar to you.

 

I think trying to upgrade to a new laptop with the new FH V7 but with old FH V6 USB data backups is fraught with snags.

 

Let me know if you have any problem with my suggestion, like there is no CD drive on the new laptop.

The alternative is to do what Jan is planning to do.

Buy a download of an FH V6 full licence from Calico Pie now costing £35.99.

That avoids needing a CD drive and includes a free upgrade to FH V7 when released next year.

Re: QUERY: V7 icon size & spacing in diagrams compared to V6

Graham Kent
 

For Icons 1 & Icons 2 please read as "Bilko Icons" & "Bilko Icons 2".

I will go through them all, confirm their conversion to .emf and upload as requested (might be a day or 2 though).

If anyone would like to add an Icon for a specific purpose, please message me directly and I will try my best to find something suitable.


Re: QUERY: V7 icon size & spacing in diagrams compared to V6

Mike Tate
 

So your personal folder Icons 1 thru Icons 4 hold updated .emf versions of your .bmp icons?

Would it be possible for you to publish those new sets of icons in the FHUG Knowledge Base Downloads for other users?

Mike,

Forgive me, but my brain has stopped working correctly today !

When I installed fH7, the new Icons were added to the same directory as was used before and that is where my previous folders (Icons 1, Icons 2 to Icons 4) were situated. I now see that the Icons 1 etc folders were NOT added as I suggested before. My mistake - apologies for the confusion.

On the point of Census Icons, one of the new sets is called "Number Labels" and this set contains the numbers "01" to "99" on Blue, Pink, Green & Yellow labels (I had missed the absence of the "00" before !). I presume that these have been provided for Census use, but could have other uses such as numbering Generations ...

When you refer to ‘Icons 2’ where exactly can that be found?

The FH V7 Box Features Select Icon dialogue only mentions the Bilko_Icons folder.

Those are the ones I compared with FH V6 and Census labels are rather smaller in FH V7.

Hi Paul,

Some points that may help on the size of icons -

1. The type of image used for icons has changed from Bitmap ( .bmp ) to “Enhanced MetaFile” (.emf) and can normally be found at C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\Icons. The emf icons are much better at scaling and always seem clearer than previous types (bmp) that I used. Most of the standard icons are included in the new ones added to fH7 including the Bilko Icons :)

2. To adjust the spacing between the icons on a diagram, go to Diagram Options - Dimensions - More Dimensions (button at bottom) - Other Dimensions (at bottom) - Gap Between Icons boxes at bottom right.  Mine are set to 0.05" & 0.02" and the icons appear close to the Individual box on my diagrams.

My suggestion would be to change your icons to the new ones, then adjust the size of them to suit (Diagram Options - Boxes - then select the condition you wish to edit and click "edit features" on bottom left.

BTW - the "Bilko Icons" have been converted to the emf format and included with the new set of Icons under "Icons 2".

Bilko

Hello,

When using AS7 to input details from the 1940 US Census, the AS Template shows a lot of columns that do not appear in the census form - or at least, in the version of the census form that is shown by Ancestry. Using AS7 'auto text' the result is that in the 'text from source' tab of the source/citation in FH7 I have a lot of columns that are empty apart from the header. I can edit those colums in FH7 by laboriously deleting each header and then minimising the column width, but is there any straightforward way, either in AS7 before saving, or in FH7 after saving, to delete those columns altogether?

Hi,

I use icons on diagrams (via expressions) to flag individuals where I have their BMD certificates as well as census entries. I suspect a lot of others do this as well. I upgraded to version 7 yesterday. When I produced a diagram the icons were much smaller and more spaced out than when doing the same thing in V6. Presumably something has changed between versions as I hadn't changed any settings. I had a play to try and improve this but am not getting very far so wondered if anyone else has experienced this and has the solution please?

I've included a screen shot to show what it looks like in version 7. Not sure if I can find a previous version 6 for comparison as I don't have these flags when I save diagrams.



Hoping that someone can help.

Many thanks, Paul 

(I thought I posted this yesterday but it didn't seem to come through so trying again).

Hello,

When using AS7 to input details from the 1940 US Census, the AS Template shows a lot of columns that do not appear in the census form - or at least, in the version of the census form that is shown by Ancestry. Using AS7 'auto text' the result is that in the 'text from source' tab of the source/citation in FH7 I have a lot of columns that are empty apart from the header. I can edit those colums in FH7 by laboriously deleting each header and then minimising the column width, but is there any straightforward way, either in AS7 before saving, or in FH7 after saving, to delete those columns altogether?

Geoff
