It was the missing value! Now it works!

 

I didn’t realise that a value was necessary. I just typed in “proved” as a value and Bingo!

 

Thanks for your very quick help!

 

Kind regards

Did you put a value into the  attribute or have you simply added a blank attribute, what happens if you add a value? 

If you only want to flag the records you could simply use a flag rather than an attribute.

Hello all,
I've just spent a lot of time trying to acquire for Google Chrome Online Repository Assistant (ORA) but cannot find it on Google Web Store or anywhere else other than an American site, https://www.familyhistoryhosting.com/oc/ is this the only source?
Once I've paid the subscription how do I get the program?
I know my brain is not in gea.

Hi again Mike

 

Unfortunately, I can’t get this to work.

 

I’ve defined a (custom) individual attribute “DNA Ancestor”. And given this attribute to my father.

And then gone to Diagram/Options/Boxes/Add condition with the expression %INDI._ATTR-DNA_ANCESTOR[1]% and then chosen a box fill in a certain colour. Nothing happens.

But if I choose any standard individual attribute for the condition (as opposed to my custom attribute), the box fill works when the condition exists for that individual.

Have I made a mistake in the definition of the attribute? I can’t see where I’ve gone wrong.

 

Regards

Jane

Hi Jane,

 

There is a lot of discussion on this topic in the FHUG Forums.

 

Also, Jane Taubman has an online article that covers a lot of the techniques including marking Diagram boxes.

See https://www.taubman.org.uk/family/wp/2019/03/13/recording-dna-matches-in-family-historian/

 

She uses a custom Event called GedMatch instead of a custom attribute called DNA Proven but the concepts are the same.

Hi there

 

I would like to mark DNA proven ancestors as a default function in all diagrams. I am thinking something like defining a new attribute “DNA proven” which then changes e.g. the background colour in the boxes in all diagrams. I’ve already defined the custom attribute but I’m now stuck at how to change the background colour depending on whether the individual has this attribute or not.

 

Or is there an easier or better way of achieving what I’m after?

 

Kind regards

Jane Merkel

I am pleased to announce ORA, the Online Repository Assistant.

ORA combines a web browser extension with a Windows program to help you extract data from your favorite online repositories and capture the information in your genealogy program. ORA has several features that will save time, reduce errors, and increase the consistency of your data entry.

Currently, ORA supports these online repositories: Ancestry.com, FamilySearch, Find a Grave, General Register Office (UK), Newspapers.com, and Nova Scotia Genealogy. More will be added in the coming weeks.

The Record Status feature helps you keep track of which records you have reviewed so you do not waste time reviewing a record that you have already processed or rejected. If you mark a record Pending or Questionable, ORA will add it to a list so you can easily return to it later.

There are several Clipboard-oriented features that simplify copying data to the clipboard. If you've ever pasted data only to discover it includes unwanted HTML formatting, newlines, or punctuation, or found it hard to select the text because of the way it is presented on the repository page, you'll love how ORA simplifies this essential process.

At the heart of ORA is a data extraction engine that finds the data on a repository page and gathers it into the ORA Control Panel. Those fields can be copied to the clipboard, as described above. With ORA's powerful Text Templates facility, you can combine field values into your preferred source or citation format and use the template output with ORA's Clipboard feature. ORA's Text Templates are similar to the sentence and citation templates found in RootsMagic, Family Historian, TMG, and other programs, but with special features for transforming fields as they are inserted into the output of the template.

Going further, you can use ORA's Auto Type feature where you define templates to send keystrokes and other control sequences to your genealogy program to do automated data entry!

For more information about ORA, see the Introduction slideshow. It includes several videos that show ORA in action.

ORA has its own discussion list. Please join if you want to discuss ORA with current and future users.

I do not use Chrome so I cannot give you a definitive answer - however, any updates to the browser plug-in requires submission to the Google Web Store (and others as appropriate) for validation, which can take a day or two. To be honest, if John Cardinal says it works with Chrome, I would be very much inclined to accept that statement - from my dealings with him he is a pretty straight guy.

Looking at the Google Groups list for ORA, I do not see posts complaining that ORA does not work with Chrome, but I will post a query on there asking John C. to give me a definitive statement - this may take a short while for an answer.

Yes it does David. 
It works with Firefox, Chrome and Edge.
I have used it with Firefox and Chrome.

Thank you John. I did look at that link. It stated it will work with Chrome, but then later it states ORA has been submitted to Google Web Store and is awaiting approval. I know this can mean many things. Do you know categorically if it does work with Chrome?

Thanks

Re: Photos,

Mike Tate
 

I have replied with a couple of screenshots to help solve James problem, but they have not got through, so here is the first one again.

 

In the Media tab. with the missing Media item selected, click the large blue arrow to Go To Media Record which should look like this:

 

A screenshot of a cell phone

Description automatically generated

 

What is listed in the File: box? Please tell me.

That specifies the folder and filename where the photo media file should exist.

 

If it says Media\... as in the screenshot above then it should not go missing.

If it is somewhere on your C:\ drive then I suspect you have moved or deleted the file after adding it to the Media tab.

When you add photos you should get a dialogue with Copy File(s) to; options as shown below.

Which option do you choose? <Default Location within Project Folder> or <Don’t copy – link only>

Those two options determine whether you get the Media\... or C:\ drive File: link above.
