Pictures not always working correctly

18 February 2020 - 01:36 PM

I am using PH 3.


In a story I have used the insert picture function to good use without a problem. Now I have an issue that I cannot seem to figure out.


I have created an image of a small pedigree chart and saved it as a JPG, PNG and TIFF files. The images all import/insert correctly into Word 2010. They all open correctly in Photoshop.


When I insert into a story in PH3 I get strange results.


The image is of a very poor quality both in the composer and if I try printing the story out. I have tried both PNG and JPG. If I publish the story the resulting file also has the low quality picture in it.


Also when I get the picture inserted, even at the low image quality, when I page down in the story the image seems to scroll in the image box at the same time that the text is scrolling.


The only workable solution that I have arrived at is to insert the poor quality picture and replace the picture once I get the story into Word.


What am I doing wrong here?

Story without titles printed

30 January 2020 - 12:28 PM

I am trying to publish a report and every time it asks I select not to print the Titles or dates. It seems that the titles are printed whether I want them or not.


This is the sequence of events. I created a simple test story.


   Publish new book

   Defaults on Book information page

   No selection on the special sections page

   Select currently visible stories

   Chapters by category

   No selections on book options

   Create book

   Unselect Print story titles and Print story dates

   Publish book and the titles and dates appear on the output


How can I not print the titles or dates but just the story?

Life Capsul

I have used RM's Life Capsul in PH3 and TMG and the ability to create other non person specific events has great utility. If anyone has seen either the demo of V8 or other info, will this be part of V8?

New mapping in version 8

30 December 2019 - 03:24 PM

I have RM7, PH3, and Family Atlas. I just saw Bruce's video on RM8 mapping and was wondering if these additional programs will be incorporated into RM8 or if PH3 and Family Atlas will be upgraded?

RM7 website

05 November 2019 - 05:49 PM

I, like others on this forum, have had trouble recently getting the RM website to work. It appears that Javascript is not working in my windows 7 environment. I have tried IE, Firefox, and Chrome following all their instructions on how to get Javascript to function - to no avail.


I want it to work on my Android tablet using firefox as the browser to take on research trips to look up data as needed. I have tried the RM website in my website development tool, Dreamweaver, and all the javascript works their just fine.


What am I doing wrong? While not a showstopper it would be nice if I can get this useful tool back.
