When I open my database in Family view, I can scroll through the line in interest and a thumbnail of a photo will show up just left of the name for numbers of generations.

I have attempted to produce a 5-ancestor/2-descendant Hourglass report with photos (I know that is quite a large report, but i will edit out quite a few lines).  But the report only includes a few of the photos that are attached to my database (maybe only 20%).

Can anyone please suggest what I am doing wrong?

 

I am running RM 7.9.5.0 on W10 v 1803.

When I run the same report on my notebook (W10 v1809, same RM 7.9.5.0) no photos appear.  The files on the 2 machines have been synchronised using MS OneDrive Business.


Any assistance appreciated

Regards

Cedric

The photos you wish to display in charts mush be marked as "primary" for the person in the media tag.

Are there any red x's appearing in the lower right corner of the thumbnails?

Yes they are marked Primary, but Renee has identified the problem, thanks.

Sometime in the past I must have changed the directory structure where many of my photos are stored.  I have now produced the chart I wanted.

 

My data is in D: drive on the desktop, but the O/S of my notebook has allocated D: for the recovery drive, so data is in F:, hence none of my photos link correctly when I open RM in the notebook.  I have to re-install the O/S anyway, so I had better fix that at the same time.


Any assistance appreciated

You can use Search>Search and Replace to quickly change the "Multimedia filenames" drive letter.

Thanks for that tip.

But once I then synchronise my user files through OneDrive, that change would be transferred to my other computer.  So I will only use that if I am doing something on the notebook that requires correct multi-media links.


Any assistance appreciated
