Technical Help / Re: pdf files
« on: Friday 14 September 18 13:08 BST (UK)  »
You can edit PDF files in LibreOffice (it's the same pretty much as OpenOffice). It's a very well known and well trusted office suite which is free. It's available for PC, Linux and Mac.

Download it, and install it.

You then go into LibreOffice Draw (which is past of the Office package), press "Open", and select the PDF you wish to edit.

It then opens up the document that you can then edit.

Occasionally you will find that some PDFs are locked to editing by the use of a password. In those cases unless you have the password you will not be able to edit them using this method.

I'm not sure if this is relevant for you, but it could be useful to see if the digitized records of The Inn's Archive includes the records that you have.

It's reasonably tidy handwriting, but a really poor quality scan.

Technical Help / Re: Rootschat hacked??

No, RootsChat isn't hacked. :)

It's simply that spammers register and start posting their spam.

These can then quite quickly build up as the ''Latest Posts".

Also, for those of you who have set up to get email notifications for new topics on a board, you will get a new email notification too.

Quite often, by the time you then log in, these posts will not be there as a moderator has removed them and the spammer blocked. This is what happened in this case too.

There are systems in place to reduce the number of spammers, but as you can see, some do get through from time to time.
