This cumulative skins update containing all skins updates made since the release of GenoPro 2020 version 3.1.0.1 

It has a large number of additional changes and so will possibly contain an error or two.  Please report any issues you discover and I will do my best to correct them.

Scripts for all reports are now held in the Common\Code folder.  This approach allows the various translations of some skins to invoke the same scripts rather than their own, possibly outdated, copy.  

In order to 'trick'  GenoPro into using this Code folder each skin folder has a dummy Code folder containing a single file placeholder.txt (needed as I believe the GenoPro installer is not happy with empty folders).  The skins have a 'bootstrap' .vbs/VBScript or .js/JScript  file that runs first in Config.xml and on the first run of that skin the script replaces the dummy Code folder with a Junction (aka Reparse Point) linking to the Common\Code folder.  The skin then runs normally. 

Messages relating to this 'bootstrap process are held in folder Common\Boot in files ConfigMsgXX.xml, where XX is language code. 

Translations of configuration messages are held in the skin folder as ConfigMsgLocal.xml or in some cases Config.xml.  These messages will replace the base English messages held in Common\Code\reportname\ConfigMsgBase.xml

I have reformatted some of the translated Dictionary.xml files via my ReformatXML utility (see App Launcher skin) to allow easier side by side comparison and editing against the English version (e.g.using WinMerge) .  I have  attempted translations to some of the Dictionary.xml files where messages were missing.

I recommend that you create a new GenoPro Report Skins folder and download and unzip the attached file into that folder.  You can then direct GenoPro to use this new folder under the Options tab the the Tools/Generate Report dialogue.  This will allow simple regression to previous versions of the skins should you deem it necessary, i.e. if I've got something wrong!

Version 2020.11.26 has a minor update to incorrect checksum causing the Narrative Report log to show:

**** with modifications ****
 
even when no modifications to the skin templates has been made.

previous updates

Update to fix issue preventing Export to Gedcom skin from working (version 2020.11.07 )

Update 2020-08 to NL-BE skin translations provided by Nand

correction to ParameterSettings.hta to prevent error when incorrect cover image filename initially specified.

Fixes for the PDF 'book' output using wkhtmltopdf.exe.  N.B. you need to specify 'book' style output under the Printing tab as well as settings under the  PDF Conversion tab.  Also PDF conversion can be very very slow!

Further improvements to Custom Markup (see also How to Customise your Report and https://familytrees.genopro.com/genome/CustomMarkupExample/default.htm Wink

Correction made to Open Office template used for Descendants Report.
Custom Markup for the Narrative Report has been revamped.  Details have now been added to the post How to Customise your Report. I took some ideas from a blog by Peter Theony for my GenoTab project some years ago.  I have now applied the concept to produce a recursive Custom Markup parser for GenoPro 2020 so now markup tags can be nested to produce complex results.  I have also give the markup tags single letter short forms e.g. s for subsection,h for html, v for video/movie etc. Also some new tags e.g. c or container for a collapsible section like subsection but more flexible, a g tag for a grid or table. I will work on the documentation for this over the coming days/weeks. Unsure BigGrin

Secondly the Descendants Report now has bookmarks and hyperlinks allowing the reader to navigate up and down the file when viewing online.

Version 2020.08.11 has fix for gnolib.js not merging Parameter Settings from ConfigMsgLocal.xml for translated skins as reported by albertsali

Also change to allow variation in number number of popular names and places listed on Home page.  This is achieved via new tags PopularNames and PopularPlaces under Names tab of Paramter Setting dialogue ,  ie. from ConfigMsgBase.xml 

Also removed spaces from download filename to prevent Mozilla FireFox issue.
