Hi Nick, I have been playing again, here are more thoughts of the day:- 8. I like the fact that you can see the effect of the "Background layer contrast" adjustment dynamically. The choice of colours is also critical. 9. Why does the help page not retain its size & position between sessions, is this...

Hi Nick, Just back from holiday and have started playing with Version 3. Here are my initial thoughts. 1. I like the layers feature but am still working out how best to use it. So far I have simply selected all ancestors on one specific layer. I will be interested how other users use the layers opti...

Hi Nick, Here are my suggestions for version 3. 1. Save the size, position, column widths of the following windows for the next time the program is run; the "Select person to edit" window, the "Select family to edit window", the "Query" window. 2. Include the Notes database as an option in the "data...

Hi Steve, To get more people per page you have to reduce the information about each person and/or reduce the detail on each entry. In the options the date can be displayed as long as Thursday "5 February 2008" or shortened to "5 2 2009" or even just the year. Use the replace text section to replace ...

Hi Richard,

I have had this problem. When the number of source references is way too high the database is confused. Try ->File ->Database ->Pack this should correct it.

The trial version adds a note at the top of the document. I have tried it. It ...

Hi LeRoy,

When you create a new box it becomes the top layer. This is why you then cannot see the text in, or under the box. The answer is to send the box to the back. Select the box then Menu -> Align -> Send to back; or [CONTROL] .

Packing database produces eight random folders in database

For some time I have been wondering where the extra folders in the active database came from. They have random names and are empty. I was worried about deleting them at first as I did not know what they were used for. I now have discovered that they are generated when packing the database. Is there ...

Fills not showing in PDF

Try PDF Creator from :-

http://www.pdfforge.org/products/pdfcreator/

I can output coloured hatched filled shapes to a pdf file with this.

It will install a printer on your system which you can use in most application to divert the print output to a pdf file.

Privacy Level

Hi Group, How do you use the Privacy Level feature? I have my ideas but what do others do? I have primary evidence from source documents at the lowest numbers, then secondary transcribed evidence, then searches to be made, and sensitive date at the top level. For example, level 9 is used to identify...

Tree Area Timeline Grid

Hi Richard & Nick, I agree with your idea. I use the snap to grid feature on the tree area and place families married on the same decade on the same horizontal line. So if parents marry in the 1860s and the children marry in the 1880s, the childrens' families are two grid lines below the parents. To...
