Re: Does fh7 still use Internet Explorer modules?

Mike Tate
 

The early versions of FH V7 still used Internet Explorer, so the plugin was relevant then.

As Helen says, FH V7 now uses the Edge browser, so the plugin details will be changed to exclude V7.

FH7 uses Edge as the internal browser.

 

FH6 still uses IE and I would not expect it to be updated.

Browsing the Plugin Store, I see listed WRITE REG IE SHELL VERSION which "affects the Internet Explorer Version used by Family Historian internal browser windows such as the Web Search Window, Map Window, and plugin Map Life Facts window." Having experienced issues with RootsMagic's internal browser, which also uses IE modules, being rejected by some websites,

  1. Are there any current issues with fh7's internal browser?
  2. Is there an update planned to replace the IE internal browser with a contemporary one?

I suggest you check your mouse single-click is working correctly.

Do its batteries need changing? Can you try another mouse?

Otherwise, try re-installing FH v7.0.9.

Thank you for your response Mike. When I click the Property Box is already open and, as you say, a single click should update the record, but now it doesn't. I have to double click and using the up/down arrows has no effect. If FH hasn't changed, then it must be something on my computer that's changed. Yes, I was aware you could now click anywhere on a record name to update.

It always needed a double-click to open the Property Box initially.

Once the Property Box is open then by selecting any record with either single-click or up/down arrows the contents of the Property Box will update to the selected record. It has always been that way.

 

What has changed in FH v7.0.9 is that clicking anywhere on the row will select the record whereas before you had to click the Record name on the left.

Hi Neil,

I went to Tools --> Preferences --> Property Box, then down to Preferred Position for Citation List Pane, and selected Right of Property Box for both.

I find the most difficult thing is knowing the correct name for all the boxes, windows etc.

One last question which I haven't been able to easily answer - my screen is small and I prefer to have the Source Citation box to the side, rather than under the Property Box. I can't seem to find how to shift it.

As far as I know, that window remembers the last thing you did with it.

EG, I just sorted on the column 'Updated' to have the latest records I updated at the top, then closed FH, re-opened it and it is the same, so you can click on any column header to sort on that column. Click it with the right button to get options on the sort (Ascending/Descending and 'Configure Columns')

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the advice. I downloaded the plugin on both computers. Had to upgrade to V7.0.9 on the older laptop. Ran the backup, transferred the resulting Family Historian file to a USB stick, plugged it into my new laptop & placed it in the Family Historian Projects folder. Ran the restore, but got an error message - Backup Folder has no Family Historian Version 7.0.9.0 backup data saved. I'm not sure where I have gone wrong. I'm wondering if I have the backup folder in the right place - as a separate folder under Family Historian Projects.

Any advice welcome - thank you.

Once installed, open FH and go to Tools>Plugins.... and Run 'Backup and Restore Family Historian settings'

You will need to save the settings to somewhere like a USB drive or a cloud service like OneDrive/Dropbox that can be accessed from both devices.

My old laptop shows two Calico Pie folders, one under Program Files (x86), the other under ProgramData. The files located under ProgramData seem to have more recent ones amongst them.

Many thanks for any advice.

Re: Backup Problems

Mike Tate
 

Kathleen,

Those files are not Saved Charts.

They are PDF Diagram files you have saved in the Public folder.

Those two PDF files are open in a PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat Reader.

One is a Descendants Diagram for Thomas Bean and the other an All Relatives Diagram for Kathleen Dawson.

If you find which application has those two PDF files open and close them then the Backups will complete OK.

However, since they are only saved Diagrams they can easily be recreated.

At the moment I am running Family Historian 6.2.7, but hoping for Father Christmas to upgrade me to V7.

 

When doing a full backup I am getting two error messages as follows:

 

  1.  Unable to open file “C:\Users\CaptainK\Documents\Family Historian Projects\Dawson Family\Public\Descendants of Thomas Bean.pdf” for backup.  Skip this file to continue.

 

  1.  Unable to open file “C:\Users\CaptainK\Documents\Family Historian Projects\Dawson Family\Public\Relatives of Kathleen Dawson.pdf” for backup.  Skip this file to continue.

 

I have skipped the backing up of these files, but don’t want any bugs or anything in the system when I upgrade.  When going to View, Saved Charts, there are no saved charts with those titles.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Many thanks

Re: Installing FH7 on Windows 11 laptop

Mike Tate
 

Linda,

The Records Window and many other settings are saved in the Windows Registry

Did you tick the plugin Options tab setting to Allow Restore Registry Data.

Then in the RESTORE it will offer to restore the Registry Data Keys, which is greyed out otherwise.

That is all explained in the Help & Advice pages.

 

To move the Source Citation List pane see Tools > Preferences > Property Box and adjust the Preferred Position for Citation List Pane. It is best set to Open in New Window, then you can adjust its size alongside the top of the Property Box and arrange the floating Citation Window below such that the arrangement is similar to FH v6.2.

You will have to reduce the size of the main FH window to provide space to its right.

 

See the FHUG Forum posting Change default opening Tab for Citation floating window:

https://www.fhug.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=19000#p113270

I suspect you have chosen the Family Historian folder in the Plugin as the Backup folder.

On the old PC that folder was NOT the Backup folder but you chose perhaps your default Backup folder.

Do the same on the new PC and choose the parent folder that contains the Family Historian folder.

i.e. In your case that is probably the Family Historian Projects folder.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for the advice. I downloaded the plugin on both computers. Had to upgrade to V7.0.9 on the older laptop. Ran the backup, transferred the resulting Family Historian file to a USB stick, plugged it into my new laptop & placed it in the Family Historian Projects folder. Ran the restore, but got an error message - Backup Folder has no Family Historian Version 7.0.9.0 backup data saved. I'm not sure where I have gone wrong. I'm wondering if I have the backup folder in the right place - as a separate folder under Family Historian Projects.

Any advice welcome - thank you.

Best regards,

Linda

Hi Linda

Best advice is to install the Backup and Restore plugin by Mike Tate, found here Backup and Restore Family Historian Settings – Plugin Store (family-historian.co.uk) on both laptops. Backup your settings on one, and Restore them on another.

Once installed, open FH and go to Tools>Plugins.... and Run 'Backup and Restore Family Historian settings'

You will need to save the settings to somewhere like a USB drive or a cloud service like OneDrive/Dropbox that can be accessed from both devices.

Best Wishes

Neil.

Hello,

I've installed the FH7 software no problem and can open my projects on my new laptop but my settings aren't there. Which files from the Calico Pie folder do I need to get my settings?

My old laptop shows two Calico Pie folders, one under Program Files (x86), the other under ProgramData. The files located under ProgramData seem to have more recent ones amongst them.

Many thanks for any advice.

Best regards,

Linda Hansen
