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

Trevor Rix
 

My initial suggestion "Try the Ancestor And Descendant diagram which is labelled Both on the FH v7 toolbar" has not appeared in this thread.
 
You can manually change the size of the icons. For me the "100 dpi" size is usually the best.

Hi Paul,

I get that effect with Bilko_Icons on both FH V6 and FH V7.

Other icons are somewhat larger, but the same on both V6 and V7.

Hi,

I've just installed V7 as a replacement to V6. I make use of icons in diagrams (via expressions) to flag which records I have BMD certificates for as well as which census I have found the person in. I tried to produce a new diagram without changing any settings and the icons are coming out really small compared to what I had before. See attached. I've started to try and change a few setting but without total success so wanted to check if anyone else has already had and solved this issue.

Not sure if I can find an old image from V6 but certainly the icons were bigger and closer together.

Thanks for any advice, Paul

Try the Ancestor And Descendant diagram which is labelled Both on the FH v7 toolbar.

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

Paul Terrill
 

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).

Re: Storing Family History Events and Notes

Mike Tate
 

To create a self-contained ‘diary’ try a Source record rather than a Repository.

That allows multiple Media to be attached and rich text formatting in the Text From Source and Note box.

Then Publish > Miscellaneous Reports > Source Summary Report will produce a customisable report.

 

Also, that Source can be used to derive facts for the Individuals involved.

 

Happy New Year, Mike Tate

Have you tried doing a narrative report?

Go to the person you want to stat from. Open view from the top then promnpt publish and select narrative report. You will then have a choice of how many descendants you wish for this report. The report will generate all the names and images under these names

Good Evening,

At the outset I want to commend this group as being very knowledable and helpful for my past queries. I am a new FH user.

 

I want to store multiple family history events/narratives  each being multiple pages long. Our family members want to record their life experiences as occurred from partitioning of the country, experiences as refugees, professional achievements etc. I expect several dozen contributions containing text and pictures. We would like to publish this as a part of family history at a later date.

 

What is the best way to do so? I started creating repository records. I am not able to add picture to the text and to edit entered text. Also, when I try to create a book/booklet with other family/individual records etc, each repository item appears as a separate chapter – rather than a chapter called “Repository Records” and the dozen plus items listed within it.

 

I am sure FH experienced users can provide me the guidance on how to handle the situation of recording major family events and start me on the right track.

Re: Diagram Lock Window Icon

Diagram Lock Window Icon

Brian Horridge
 

Hi and Happy New Year to everyone

I'm using FH6 and I have it set to reuse diagram windows so when I'm flicking through several people I do not end up with a lot of diagram window.  However, when I used to use Ver 5 I had an Icon on the toolbar that allowed me to lock a specific diagram window to prevent it being re-used.  However, the toolbar Icon seems missing and I can no longer find how to re-instate it.  I appreciate that I can lock a window by the menu "Window - Lock Window (prevent re-use)" but I used to find having a clickable Icon much easier.  The Toolbar Icon was the padlock symbol shown against the drop-down menu.

Can the toolbars be customised in FH6 ??  (I cannot remember if I customised my FH5 or if it was standard)

Many thanks

Brian


Re: Plugins/AS updates

Mike Tate
 

Yes, it is similar to Plugins that state they are compatible with FH V5, V6, V7 and similarly adapt where necessary to the different features, some of which go beyond the GEDCOM file.

e.g.

FH V7 allows Project local Fact Type definitions and my Change Any Fact Tag and Export Gedcom File plugins will cope with those in their next published version.

Can I check that if data is entered using AS7 it will be OK with a FH6 project as it has been mentioned that the underlying GEDCOM file structure in FH7 is different from FH6  (or does AS7 detect the FH file version and act accordingly??)

Hi Kath,

 

1) You must only run Plugins that are applicable to your version of FH. The Plugin Store says which are which.

Some of the latest Plugins only work with FH V7 other Plugins work with FH V5, V6 & V7.

Some Plugins may check the FH version is compatible but don’t rely on that.

 

2) AS V7 works with all FH versions.

 

Happy New Year, Mike Tate

1) If I update my plugins to the most up to date versions while using FH6 will that mess anything up?

2) If I update Ancestral Sources to version 7 while using FH6 will that mess anything up?

Thanks.
