  2. Moving Parallels to new computer

    Something like this... https://forum.parallels.com/threads/old-mac-to-new-mac-and-parallels-desktop.343898/
  3. If you have experience with moving your Parallels virtual machine to a new computer, would you contact me off list? kaspar.robin@gmail.com To keep this TMG related, I run v9.05 and have a new computer. Hoping to make the experience of setting it up as painless as possible and get back to the business of updating my TMG database. Thanks so much! Robin in Short Pump

  5. Place styles

    Thank you both. I had forgotten about TMG Utility - not used it for years. I used it, it did exactly what I wanted - should have thought of/remembered it. We can close this now.
  6. Place styles

    You never want places using the US style and the UK style in the same data set because of the place levels differences. Good tip about TMG Utility. See my comments two replies up.
  7. Place styles

    So one could install the US version and import into that, then merge the resulting Project with an existing Project created in the UK version? Would that work? As I recall you can't install TMG twice on the same computer, so the US version would have to be on a different computer? I don't remember all the details about how the two versions work. That seems complicated. On the other hand, I see that TMG Utility has a a feature to change Place Styles. So one could import, then change the Place Styles before merging into the main project. I don't recall what happens during Merge with you happen to have two places otherwise the same but with different Styles, which could happen if you already have some US places in the main Project.
  8. Place styles

    If you use a copy of the template project that I sent and import directly into the existing data set (that has US styles), the data should be imported using the data set styles. Tested and this doesn't work. Data Set Manager / Import imports to a new data set (not the selected data set) and that will use the installation default styles. Terry's suggestion of using TMG Utility (below) appears to be the only solution and that will require editing the Master Place list to shift the levels for the place parts.

    Thank you Terry - That seems to be in line with my investigations and experience. Damn!
  10. Place styles

    Jim, Isn't the default Place Style set for a Data Set, not a Project? Since you cannot import into an existing Data Set there would seem to be no way to set the default Place Style for an import. So a TMG-UK user can't set the place style for an import to US other than having using a US version of TMG to make the import. No?
  11. Place styles

    That is very kind. Email sent. Thank you
  12. Place styles

    That's surprising. Your default, I assume, would be UK and you should be able to select the data set in the Data Set Manager and select the US place styles since they are "built in". Maybe a dummy person is needed. I can send you a empty project with the US styles selected. You could keep this as a template and copy it as needed for new imports.

  13. Place styles

    Thanks Jim, but I tried that and couldn't get it to work. It will not allow me to set a place style in an empty database/data set.
  14. Place styles

    You can set the place styles globally in the Data Set Manager (File / Data Set Manager). If you do that in a blank data set and then import a GEDCOM, the places should use those place styles. Existing places in a data set will need to have their place styles changed manually in the Master Place List. You don't want to mix UK and US place styles in the same data set since you would have comparable place entities at different levels.
  15. Place styles

    Please subscribe to our new email list at Groups.IO. I have personally never worked with any place style other than US Standard. I'm not sure you can mix place styles in a single database, but what do I know? Constance
  16. Place styles

    I am based in the UK. I am importing data from gedcoms into TMG databases. Some of these gedcoms contain data that is mainly US based. I want in those cases to set the default place style to US Standard Place. I cannot see how to do this. There are no options to set styles on an empty database nor can I see any import options. Import chooses UK Standard Place as the default. So I get all the data imported then have to change all those place records manually. What am I missing?
  17. Can't find missing exhibits

    Carl, You are welcome. Happy to help. Jim
  18. Can't find missing exhibits

    Thanks, Jim, for solving this problem for me. Just wanted to thank you publicly here, in addition to via private email! Carl
  19. Can't find missing exhibits

    Thanks, Jim. I'll do that now. Just getting back to genealogy after the holidays. -- Carl

  23. dataset contents

    I have solved my problem! I was just being dumb. Thank you
  24. There are 1898 people in a data set but probably quite a few are not flagged to be included in output or are still alive. Using SS the ones to be included are based on a “Unaligned” flag. The last time I was able to upload there were 1236 shown in that data set. However now SS will only produce a small number (285) of the total number. Is this a TMG problem or SS? How do I fix?
  25. Preferences

    I followed instructions (I had hid apply and save before) And when I Filtered for Primary events was not checked. The only thing that had a check was non-witnessed events, whatever that is. However before I closed I click the extreme left thing at the top for save layout and Then it reopened as it should. Thank you
  26. Preferences

    First, Quish, Terry is correct that "most" Preferences which affect the display are stored as part of the Layout. Unfortunately, filtering to show only Primary events is not. It is stored with the project's overall Preferences. Just to be clear look at the "Details" window for any person. Does the first column of the Tag area have the title "Filtered"? I assume it does. There are two ways to change that Filtered setting. I assume you are opening "Preferences" and under "Tag Box" you are checking "Show non-primary events", and then clicking "Apply" on the Preferences window. Correct? That is one way. If you reopen Preferences is the box "Show non-primary events" still checked? If not I am guessing you missed the "Apply" step. A second way to turn off this filtering is to click in the tag area of any person and "Right click" to pop up a menu. Select "Filter for..." and you can then uncheck the filter item of "Primary events". In either case when you exit that project it should save the setting in the project overall Preferences. Hope this helps, Michael
  27. Datasets vs. projects

    Thank you, Jim. Somehow I missed your reply earlier, and I apologize for my delayed response. Doris
  28. Preferences

    Back to the first question. I must still be doing something wrong. I created a new layout with "show non primary events", applied, named the layout and saved. It still opens the next time with out the non primary events, Even if I go to view layouts and select the one I saved it opens without the non primary events. Then I have to go back to preferences and change the tag box again to show non primary event. I have done this over and over hoping to get a different result but I don't. It just keeps reverting.
