Personally I would use a proper project folder. This is designed only for people who "won't" use the project structure, it is unlikely provide a future proof method as unlike a full project folder other key elements may be missing.

Great idea for a plugin! Several times over the years I've edited the gedcom directly - mainly to improve the consistency of my data entry.
I'd suggest some further development as I find it difficult to relate the plugin settings to the gedcom or what the user already sees in FH. As examples, what are the settings that would restrict the search & replace to (a) "Where within Source", (b) notes, (c) "Text within Source"? I'd suggest adopting the FH field names in the plugin would surely make it more user friendly and less prone to a user making incorrect edits.

Is there a way that this could be amended to detect if Ancestral Sources is already open and if so just get it to select the current individual rather than launching another copy of it?

Works really well.

This would be more flexible if it catered for three sources -- one each for Births, for Marriages and for Deaths -- which of course could all be the same.

It is good to have a text editor however this one has a weakness common to many other text editors. That is that it won't recognise whole words, so trying to change road for Road produces every conceivable entry for road including Broad, Broadway, Broadwinser etc. and suggests changing them to BRoad etc. It would be really excellent if a control could be added to search for whole words only which would considerably reduce the time to skip all the eroneous search results

An excellent tool for tidying up date phrases which had crept in from importing from other software.

Very useful for checking multiple links to a source.

At last! a report for those of us who shunned the "new source for every citation" method. Thank you.

Wow! Ancestry/FMP queries selected, entered and executed by a single click.   A real time saver.
