Post here the problems and improvements you would like to see, but please if you have screenshots, send them to me "". It takes too much room for the forum. Thanks. Francois

As I told you on the IRC, last time we chatted, to be able to create an importation module for your previous software, we need to have a sample of a gedcom created with it. That's the first point.
Second, to add to the video, the replies to the queries you can be asked, I have to know which queries you have, and I have to test on my side the best appropriated solutions.
Do you have two of three examples of the queries you've been asked? if so, post them here, and we will try to add to the gedcom loading process better explanation to guide the user. Francois

I am hoping to print a pedigree for a birthday on Friday but I have a few glitches I cannot solve:
- Is there anyway if I made a spelling mistake is a name (Millltownpass with three ls - easy to do) to change all of them at once or must I go through each instance?
It's easy. Open the gedcom editor. Click in the gedcom editor on a line which contains the mistake. Change the name appropriately. Once done you will have just below an option which says : ( ) Change all xxxx occurences. Check that little box and voila. Of course, before doing that : HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR GEDCOM FILE ;-)

- I am using the screenshot method suggested to make a printable file. The problem with this is that I have a tree where a key person married twice. How to make BOTH his marriages visible at once so the tree is complete?
Using that method you can't but using the All-in-one-chart report as I said some days ago, it's ok.
- Pure pedanticness: how to make the months appear in full rather than as abbreviations (which seem to me a little ugly).
Hmmmm, don't know. I have to test.
- How to allow more characters for occupation? I have some subjects with three occupations. There is space in the boxes as they stand for the full text but it cuts off after a certain number of characters mid-word.
If someone has more than one occupation you have to enter several times the occupation tag. You are not allowed to enter many occupations on one line only according to the gedcom specifications.
- Also, I have looked at all the videos but still cannot see where it tells me how to make baptismals details rather than birth ones visible for all subjects before a particular date (i.e. the one when civil registratuon started in the UK and Ireland).
Of course I've not made it yet. ;-)
As I said, if I have feedback about them, I will record more.
Hope that helps. Francois

Moin Dieter,

Yesterday I wrote a help e-mail to one of the haiku gurus.
Maybe I'll get an answer after Easter.
If I get help, I will report it.

If OpenJDK is missing, you have to install it first.
A search with Google gave me that :
Haiku Port Project
The Haiku port project is sponsored by the OpenJDK Porters Group, with the bulk of contributors belonging also to the Haiku Java Team.
This project will deliver a complete OpenJDK port to the Haiku operating system.

Once java installed, you will be able to install Ancestris and run it. Francois

ENGLISH / Re: Dates on the final/printed pedigree
« on: March 27, 2018, 20:47:22 »
I tried all-in-one and it doesn't appear in the traditional way. Apart from anything else it makes the pedigree not a good shape for printing on A1 or A2. It is also coloured which will come out badly printed black and white. Is there no way to make a simple output of the Dynamic Tree view to PDF?
Also, going back to those dates: how do I get baptism date to be printed instead of birth date for pre-1864 (Ireland) or 1845 (Great Britain) dates? Because of the way church records are kept I have no birth or death dates for the earlier period but do have baptism or burial dates. As it is now I have pedigrees where there are individuals with almost no dates because if there is no birth date nothing is dsplayed. How to get a baptism date displayed if there is no birth date? Thanks.
As I said in a previous message, it's easy.  The solution is the blueprint you use for the dynamic tree. I've made a video about that. Give a look on the english wiki. Also I've made a change to the english wiki to add a link to the blueprints archive. Give a look to the download section. In the future we will add a possibility to install automatically new blueprints instead of having to do it manually. If it's not clear enough, I can do another video to explain the whole process, but I will do that, only if people ask for it. Hope that helps. Francois

P.S. what I explain above, is for Ancestris v. 0.10, not 0.9

OK, I will try to create a new video about that. I've waited a little bit, because our developers are changing different things about entering location data. Francois
