Behold Organize Files (.bho)

A Behold Organize file contains all the information in the five Organize Pages that define what to display and how to display it in Behold's Everything Report.
The GEDCOMs page tells what files to load. The Families page says how to arrange the families. The Numbering Page defines how they'll be numbered and ordered. And the Tags page and Report page says what data to include and various text strings to use.
The Behold Organize file contains all this. It does so, but only includes items that changed from their default value. That keeps the file smaller, and allows for a default to be changed in the future with effect, if that happens to be necessary.
Behold Organize files use the suffix ".bho", and they are text files. Physically, they use the old ".ini" file format using in early versions of Windows. That just happened to be a simple format that was convenient and easy to implement. It also allowed for manual editing during Behold testing.
Normally you would not want to look at a Behold Organize file. But if you did, here is what it looks like:
What Behold Organize files do is give you great flexibility. You can have many different .bho files describing different ways to present the data from a single GEDCOM. Or, you can use .bho files to load several files together and view them different ways.
After this information is stored in a Behold Organize file, you can load the Behold Organize file to recreate the Everything Report just as you had it.
Language Translation Files are nothing more than Behold Organize files that contain just redefinitions in a new language of the Tag text and Report text. This User Guide has instructions on How To Create a Translation File and How To Use a Translation File. An example of a language translation file is:
