Fact Sentence Template truncated


Graham Conner
 

I have now reported this issue to the support centre.

No Evelyn, Sentence Templates are nothing whatever to do with GEDCOM.

They are customisations entirely local to each product, and for FH are NOT saved in its GEDCOM data file.

Possibly, some products can understand each others Sentence Templates and read each others databases, but that does not involve GEDCOM.

 

The Export Gedcom File Plugin does include FH Sentence Templates in its GEDCOM file for use by GedSite, but that uses a special non-standard extension privately agreed between us.

Other products may do likewise. But that is all external to FH, and Graham’s problem is internal to FH.

Mike Is this a Gedcom limit? I think I came across the problem and limitation in a previous software I used.

Graham . . .

It seems that when saved each Fact Sentence Template is limited to 1,000 characters, so the Template gets truncated at the end.

That limitation should be reported to Calico Pie as soon as possible and they might fix it before Version 7 is released.

Graham,

The point to remember is that most customisations apply globally to all Projects, so switching Projects retains the Fact Sentence Templates within FH local memory.

It is only when you close FH that customisation settings get saved externally, in this case to the C:\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\Fact Types\ folder.

It seems that when saved each Fact Sentence Template is limited to 1,000 characters, so the Template gets truncated at the end.

That limitation should be reported to Calico Pie as soon as possible and they might fix it before Version 7 is released.

In the meantime you will just have to work within that limit.

I want to build a Fact sentence template in FH 6.2.7 like this:

The {date:YEAR} {label} for {=CombineText("at ",TextPart(%FACT.ADDR%,1,5,Tidy),,CombineText("in ",TextPart(%FACT.PLAC%,1,5,Tidy),,))} recorded the head of the household as {role(single)=Head of Household}. <His spouse was {role=Wife}. ><Her spouse was {role=Husband}.><The Children were {role=Son,Daughter,Stepson,Stepdaughter,Son-in-law,Daughter-in-law}. ><Other family members were {role=Father,Mother,Father-in-law,Mother-in-law,Stepfather,Stepmother,Brother,Sister,Brother-in-law,Sister-in-law,Grandfather,Grandmother,Grandfather of Wife,Grandmother of Wife,Grandfather of Husband,Grandmother of Husband,Grandson, Granddaughter,Grandson of Wife,Granddaughter of Wife,Grandson of Husband,Granddaughter of Husband,Uncle,Aunte,Nephew,Niece,Adopted Son,Adopted Daughter, Fostered Son, Fostered Daughter}.><The Servants were {role=Assistant,Servant,Housekeeper,Butler,Groom,Nurse}. ><Others living there were {role=Lodger,Boarder,Resident,Pupil,Student,Patient,Inmate}. >< Visitors at the time of census were {role=Visitor}. ><<para>Note: {=TextPart(%FACT.ADDR%,7,1)}><{note}>

This works OK at first.

If I save the project, close the project and reopen the project it will appear the same, no problem.

However, If I save the project, close the project, and exit from FH completely, restart FH and open the project I end up with this:

The {date:YEAR} {label} for {=CombineText("at ",TextPart(%FACT.ADDR%,1,5,Tidy),,CombineText("in ",TextPart(%FACT.PLAC%,1,5,Tidy),,))} recorded the head of the household as {role(single)=Head of Household}. <His spouse was {role=Wife}. ><Her spouse was {role=Husband}.><The Children were {role=Son,Daughter,Stepson,Stepdaughter,Son-in-law,Daughter-in-law}. ><Other family members were {role=Father,Mother,Father-in-law,Mother-in-law,Stepfather,Stepmother,Brother,Sister,Brother-in-law,Sister-in-law,Grandfather,Grandmother,Grandfather of Wife,Grandmother of Wife,Grandfather of Husband,Grandmother of Husband,Grandson, Granddaughter,Grandson of Wife,Granddaughter of Wife,Grandson of Husband,Granddaughter of Husband,Uncle,Aunte,Nephew,Niece,Adopted Son,Adopted Daughter, Fostered Son, Fostered Daughter}.><The Servants were {role=Assistant,Servant,Housekeeper,Butler,Groom,Nurse}. ><Others living there were {role=Lodger,Boarder,Resident,Pupil,Student,Patient,Inmate}. >< Visitors at the time of cen

Which no longer works as intended. It looks like the problem is to do with loading the data initially, not what can be held while FH6 is running. Can this be fixed?
