Re: User Defined shortcuts

I run a large ONS myself and the easiest way to change file root is

 

I never use the focus window because I have over 1200 family trees in the same file
Find the name on the list “edit menu/File Root/Set as file” no extra menus or anything
Any hot may mean that you might have to turn it on or off which adds even more keystrokes

is it possible to set up user defined shortcut keys in FH? As well as for family history I am using FH to record master data for a one name study. As it is not designed really for this type of study which initially at least throws up a lot of unlinked individuals I find myself constantly having to redefine the root person to get to their record. It would be good If I could set up a shortcut or function key allowing me to redefine root directly from the individuals list without going via a seperate menu. Is this possible?

I use Autohotkey for both FH as well as when typing into excel spreadsheets for my own ONS.

Were you looking for the Data Reference, for example?
%INDI.BIRT[1].SOUR[1].OBJE[1]>%
Gives you a citation media object and

%INDI.BIRT[1].SOUR[1]>OBJE[1]>%

Gives you a source level media object.  Note the > which moves you to the record.

If you have not read the Data Reference help it's worth checking out

Citation Media

Keith Taylor
 

I have about 8000 images in my Media folder. Many of them seem to have come from a merge 4 or 5 years ago of my FTM tree into FH. They're mostly images of baptism, marriage, burial records etc.

I'm currently looking at a burial event in an individual's All tab. If I open the Source sub-tree there is a multimedia object there as a child of the source item but it doesn't exist as a child item if I go and look at the source record itself. In the Show Sources panel, clicking on images reveals the image to be 'Citation Media'. There is another option, Source Record Media, which DOES appear as a child of the source.

So is it possible to access Citation Media programmatically? I can't see a way to do so.

Re: User Defined shortcuts

I don't think so, unless you use something like autohotkey.

> I find myself constantly having to redefine the root person to get to their record.
I am not clear why you need to "redefine the root person to get to their record",  you can jump to the Property box or Focus window or anywhere else using the icons at the top and set the double click for the Record list to take you to the Property box and use Named Lists to hold the people whose records you are working with.

Thanks for that BobH, I actually just worked it out another way <[?:Registration Quarter=Q1]Mar><[?:Registration Quarter=Q2]Jun><[?:Registration Quarter=Q3]Sep><[?:Registration Quarter=Q4]Dec>

But your version is a lot neater and efficient, thank you.

I don’t think that the script allows you pause during execution. I chose the Secondary evidence option because that is what I normally use for this type of entry. If you need to leave it at it’s default of no selection, and enter your own selection after the script has finished, then just take out the {DOWN} instructions.

I think I've worked it out. The Registration Quarter and year went into Entry Date, then tab down to Assessment and choose Secondary Evidence, then tab to Where Within Source and enter Registration Year in Reg District Volume and and Page numbers, then tab to Text From Source and enter Mother's maiden name. If I'm right I've just one question. How would you cause the auto type to stop at Assessment and allow you to choose another option? It all sounds very exciting. Thank you for sharing.

Also, I have now realised that I can use {DOWN*4} instead of {DOWN} {DOWN} {DOWN} {DOWN}!
