Line length restriction - Forum post by arnold in Questions and Answers - 18 Mar 2015

Sent a shortened version of the files which shows the problem to you off-list. It has no BOM but is encoded as UTF-8 and is recognized by Behold as UTF-8 and has 1 CHAR UTF-8 even so, Behold complains about the missing BOM. But that is supposed to be one of the advantages of UTF-8 - BOM not required. ;-) even ...

Line length restriction - Forum post by arnold in Questions and Answers - 17 Mar 2015

I have just run into the same issue, but with text containing multi-byte UTF-8 characters. In this case, Behold 1.0.5.1 does not seem to count the characters correctly. It complains: 23580: 2 CONT hat gegenwärtig 750• Einwohner und war früher eine rein landwirtschaftlich orientierte Landgemeinde ...

2 DATE yes -> 2 DATE Y ?? - Forum post by arnold in Feature Suggestions - 17 Mar 2015

Just getting back to checking my own GEDCOM with Behold. In my early days, I added some lines such as: 2 DATE yes Currently Behold tells me: Behold will change this to a date phrase by adding parenthesis .... Perhaps it would be better to check for this and convert it to the acceptable 'Y', rather than a date ...

What might be a temprary alternative to Behold - Forum post by arnold in General Discussion - 29 Nov 2014

What you propose is a very thorough research project of comparing the major apps in this respect. The time and expertise needed for this I suspect is well above my level of experience and background. Even if only done with my current app, it will only get me so far because I suspect I would not necessarily ...

Date validation - case sensitive - Forum post by arnold in Report a Problem - 29 Nov 2014

Yes, isn't it nice to have a 'standard' ;-) The main reason I commented was because, before I found Behold, I had tried different validation apps to check my data and when I found nothing I thought was thorough enough - and also because the ones I did find disagreed with each other and the apps that produced ...

Add version to behold-setup.exe - Forum post by arnold in Feature Suggestions - 29 Nov 2014

I can see that from your side it is simpler, but from my side it'll mean that when I download a new version I will have to try and rename it to reflect the new version - because, from (bad) experience, I have found it never hurts to keep at least the current (and tested) version around .... just in case :-)

Add version to behold-setup.exe - Forum post by arnold in Feature Suggestions - 28 Nov 2014

When trying to get a new version it would be helpful if you could add the version to behold-setup-xx.yy.exe and/or into the setup executable properties so they will show when one hovers the mouse over the install file

Log file has problems with reporting problems with UTF-8 .ged - Forum post by arnold in Report a Problem - 28 Nov 2014

After about 4 days of fighting with the hardware (& likely the software - I hate MsMpEng.exe) I am sort of up again. The problem is always that some (important) things were not backed up, because the only time you find out they should have been backed up is when they weren't :-( Glad you were able to ...

Log file has problems with reporting problems with UTF-8 .ged - Forum post by arnold in Report a Problem - 26 Nov 2014

OK, I,ll do that - once I recover the use of my work machine which is suffering from disk malfunction :-( It'll take me a day or two PS: the gedcom does NOT have a BOM, even though it is UTF-8 encoded, in case that will help in the meantime

FWIW, the text in the main 'Everything window IS displayed properly.
