I have updated this page and added a link to Ancestris on the English software page

OK, you're right!

I understand the logic now. However, is it not unlikely a user will be including two different countries events in a timeline?

I would have expected it to read "Country:"

OK the UK Almanac is looking good in the latest version.

Except, that there is another visibility issue.

The markers on the timeline are so thin that they are hardly noticeable and the "sensitivity" area for the mouseover to bring up the dialog is very narrow.

In the dialog itself, at the bottom, there is the field that displays the country, but it is prefixed by the label (in English) "Colors:", something lost in translation here.

So I deleted <your name>\.ancestris\

Downloaded the latest version 12.

Installed again.

All works, so I conclude it must have been something or some conflict held in the \.ancestris\ folder.

Clipboard works again.

So there is just the need to be able to copy the timeline header area for the snapshot.

I reverted to the previous day's build of version 12 I had from 9 July. That works and displays the settings window.

So something must have been updated that affects it. (Are your previous builds available publicly?) The settings window displays in the latest version for other views like the Geographic map and the Dynamic tree.

Ancestris version:  12.0.11018
Windows 10
Java 8 Update 291

Default options:

default_options="--branding ancestris -J-Xms96m -J-Xmx1g --laf javax.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel"

There is no apparent error message.


I have reset the application font back to 14 both in the Preferences and the ancestris.conf file.

Now when I restart and re-run the Timeline report it still displays the original version, it's like it cached somewhere. The "change the root person" function does not regenerate the timeline either although a new person can be selected in the display.

It's not quite working for me yet, but there has been some change.

The Individual view of the Timeline now uses the default font size I have set, but not the Events mode. I also cannot access the dialog for "Configure View". The button recognises the "mouseover" but does not open the dialog.

I have also discovered that if you take screenshot the Clipboard capture does not work although save to file does. However, the resulting image does not include the timeline's timescale.

Yes, I'm up for that. I had a look at the help page but if you have some tips let me know.

Is there a UK Almanac? Or has anyone created one?

Thank you, and for your prompt response.

I have adjusted the Ancestris default font option by adding "--fontsize 24" to the ancestris.conf file in .ancestris/trunk/etc. However, the display of the Timeline report is still very small.

The zoom in the window's toolbar only changes the zoom of the timeline, not the actual data.

So I tried using the snapshot and pasting it into a graphics program but the resolution is still extremely poor.

How do I fix it?
