It's not actually the default, but if you click on small Options button next the the filters and tick the include Husbands surnames it will work.

I have recently been using the free CamScanner app on my Android smartphone to 'scan' documents etc. I find it to be excellent, automatically taking photos when the phone is held correctly above the document, then auto straightening/deskewing etc before saving as jpgs to the cloud. Highly recommended.


Re: Records Window

Sue Herrington
 

Mike, have you customised the Last Name filter in FH as I cannot reproduce the result you describe

 

Do you know that the Filter for Last Name at the top of the Records Window includes Husband’s Surnames by default?

i.e. If you search for Smith it will list everyone with the surname Smith and all women whose partner/spouse is a Smith.”

 

On trying this again just now, I still only have results of those individuals whose own surname is the one searched for.

Yes, there are various techniques depending on exactly what you want.

I assume you know how to edit Records Window Columns.

 

The simplest expression is the surname of the spouse:

INDI.~SPOU[1]>NAME[1]:SURNAME

That will give the surname of husbands and the maiden surname of wives, but only for the 1st partnership/marriage.

 

To include the 2nd partnership/marriage in another column use:

INDI.~SPOU[2]>NAME[1]:SURNAME

Similarly, for 3rd, 4th, etc, spouses.

 

It is possible to combine those all in one column with a more complex expression if you are interested.

Many people also add the partner/spouse surname to the surname of women whose maiden name is unknown, but marked in some way.

e.g. Mary /[Smith]/ or Elizabeth /Jones?/ which has the advantage of sorting with the male Jones.

Both the Snip & Sketch tool and the Snipping Tool allow any part of any screen display and any shape of snip to be captured.

They both also allow the snip to be annotated in various ways before saving to file, etc.

So it is a right-click context menu just for the Firefox application, that only operates within the Firefox browser window, so cannot take screenshots of anything else.

The general purpose screenshot tools remain as Snip & Sketch or the Snipping Tool.

In Windows 10, a handy quick way of getting a screen grab with Snip and Sketch is to press Windows+Shift+S simultaneously (Windows key is the one between Ctrl and Alt to the left of the space bar) - you can then draw around your snip area you want to capture. This is copied to the clipboard - you are notified of this - and you can paste the clip to any application using Ctrl+V (or Edit>Paste)

Windows, Shift and S are handily close together and can be done with one hand.

By default just drag a square, but there are other options to create a freeform shape or grab a window or full screen - see the small menu that opens at the top of the screen.

Neil and Trevor,

Thank you very much for that. I now remember coming across it a few years ago. But never used it.

Just found out a new Snip & Sketch is available.

If you are on Windows 7 or above Snipping Tool is part of the standard Windows operating system.

If you click on the Start button and start typing snip you will see the Tool offered as something you can click on.

Alternately, look in the Program folder 'Windows Accessories'

 

Best Wishes,

Neil

Hello Ros,

Apologies for my ignorance. I couldn't find a program on my computer at the time to convert a screen dump that had to be cropped due to duel screens to jpg files. Will find Snipping tool and download it.

Victor, where exactly do you right-click, because that usually is a context menu that changes depending on what you click on.

It may be that your PC supplier has installed some snipping application or customised the right-click menu, but that is not standard default Windows 10 behaviour.

I have never used the snip tool mentioned. I just do a right click and a menu opens. At the bottom of the list it says 'take a screen shot' I mark the area I want to take then prompt copy and open it up in my photo software where I can make any adjustment I want

I am using Windows 10

Yes, there is a new one with Windows 10 that you are offered when opening Snipping Tool

In Windows 10, a handy quick way of getting a screen grab with Snip and Sketch is to press Windows+Shift+S simultaneously (Windows key is the one between Ctrl and Alt to the left of the space bar) - you can then draw around your snip area you want to capture. This is copied to the clipboard - you are notified of this - and you can paste the clip to any application using Ctrl+V (or Edit>Paste)

Windows, Shift and S are handily close together and can be done with one hand.

By default just drag a square, but there are other options to create a freeform shape or grab a window or full screen - see the small menu that opens at the top of the screen.

 

Best Wishes,

Neil
