  1. Another great plugin from Mike Tate. Very quick single click indeed and nice navigation tool.  Would like to have ID’s shown as well, and/or a right click to go focus on an person.


  2. Adding a Print button is almost impossible, but the Windows built-in free Snip & Sketch Tool can easily grab a screen-shot and print or save that. [Rec Id] now added.

  3. Thank you Mike. My first venture into installing and using a ‘plug-in’ in FH v6.2.7 and I have found it very useful when deciphering 11 sibling relationships!
