Alphabetic sorting for non-French names

Dear all, I noticed a strange behaviour in the sorting of surnames in the Surnames indexes. The word "de" is ignored in the sorting but othe prepositions are not ignored. This causes bit of mess in the sorting of my surnames. For example: Alcázar de Alcazar Alegre Carretero del Alcazar As you see "d...

Handle Characters Manually switched on by default?

Dear all, I work in Spanish genalogy I have quite a few surnames with conjunctions and prepositions. For example: "Llera y del Campo". When I add a person with such surname, Heredis automatically changes the capitalizastion to "Llera Y Del Campo". I can go to the Surnames index and enable the option...

Re: Unanswered posts

I have the feeling that no Administrators (either Heredis staff or volunteers) are monitoring the English forums.

There are several spam messages in the forum (like "Buy Or Rent an Email List") and nobody is taking care of deleting them.

It's a bit strange, to tell the truth. :?

Meaning of "No search record"

Dear all, I was trying to understand the meaning of the "Search status" drop list in the Details tab of an event. It gives you three options but it is not clear to me what it is meant. The options are: - No search record. - Search record - Untraceable. In the help, there are instructions about how t...

Re: Heredis 2018-2019 Merge

Hello, I don't work Heredis and I cannot be sure 100% how it will work in Heredis 2019 but I have used Heredis 2015, 2017 and 2018 and I am sure that with Heredis 2019 you will be able to open your Heredis 2018 file and continue working normally. This was the way it worked in previous versions. Keep...

Availability of Heredis 2019 in English?

I just had a look at the new features in Heredis 2019, which is already avaiilable in French, and I am looking forward to having a look at it, even if I am quite happy with 2018.

Is there any plans for the English release? Will it be towards December-January more or less?

Thanks!

Local Administrator account needed to run Heredis: Which features require this?

Dear all, When reporting a behaviour, which I thought was a bug but which apparently is intended, about the need to run Heredis as a local administrator in order to use the "Geographical Repartition" feature (https://www.heredis.com/forums/en/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=4525&p=11665#p11665), the following ...

Re: Geographical repartition works only when running Heredis with an Admin account

Dear Daniel, Thanks a lot for forwarding this suggestion. I assumed it was bug because I could not find anywhere in the documentation that it is necessary to use a local Admin account to use the Geographical repartition. As a matter of fact, I could not find any reference in the user documentation o...

Re: Geographical repartition works only when running Heredis with an Admin account

Dear Daniel,

Thanks for confirming this behaviour.

I would like to ask you. Is this the expected functionality (i.e. is this "by design") or is this a bug which will be fixed in a future update?

It is just to know if I can hope that the problem will be solved soon.

Thanks!

Daniel
