  2. Terry, The person who responded said, " I expect many others will frown on this procedure," after saying, "I don't bother setting the config (and friends) files to be restored to a test folder, I just let them go to the original location(s)." Therefore, I wasn't sure whether it was the right thing to do. Thanks for the confirmation. Judy Madnick Albany, NY
  3. Judy, As explained when you asked this question on the TMG list last week, if it's a temporary restore to test the ability to make a restore, it doesn't matter. It only matter if you are intending to use the restore to enter new data.
  4. I was just about to do a restore to a temporary restore folder and noticed that I have to choose a folder to restore configuration files and timeline files. Should they also be restored to the temporary folder? I don't recall noticing this before. (IOW, I didn't pay enough attention!). My exhibits are all external, so they're not an issue. Thanks, Judy Madnick Albany, NY
  5. Michael - As you say, one can mostly figure out the first five fields. I feel the first few fields are degrees of consanguinity. However, I am insure, but think that there are different kinds of consanguinity (as defined by civil law and church law) and how the degrees are calculated. So. there may be subtle differences in the fields and what they mean. Lee
  6. Language Relationship Translations

    Lee, As you know, when this was asked on the TMG list I was unable to answer all of this. However from the examples the meaning of the hash (#) seems clear. Field one will have only one hash, field two will have two, etc. Then the output text will use the hashes as variables to output the "number" which TMG calculated for the field with that many hashes. And I would agree with your guess that these templates are only used if there is not already a template for that specific set of numbers in the fields, such as larger numbers of generations. At least that seems to be their purpose. As for the formula for the first five fields, one could probably figure it out by careful analysis of the examples. Michael
  7. In the group of strings beginning with Relationship in the Language file (Strings.dbf). there are some 1230 strings that seem to be in a certain format. A few of the strings are: Relationship (#/##/-1/####/#####/F/Short): #####ggranddaughter Relationship (#/##/1/####/#####/F/Long): 1st cousin #### times removed Relationship (50/49/48/1/-1/M/Long): 48th cousin 1 time removed Specifically, what are the values within the parentheses? The first three would probably be the number of generations, but what is the difference? The next two would seem to be related to the “removed” amount and the direction of the removal. The next would be the gender of the person. The last seems to permit both the long (verbose) and short (abbreviated) description of the relationship. Finally, those showing the “#” characters might be a provision for relationships beyond 50 generations. But, am I even in the right neighborhood on this? Lee
  8. TMG 9.0

    Just to note... This error occurs during the process of transferring the TMG data into the raw format used by the report engine to build the output file. I have no way to debug this process. You can output to a .DOC file for the Descendancy Narrative Report since this report is not form based. I wouldn't be surprised if you got the same error. You could also try a Journal report to either a .DOC or .RTF file. Be sure to run the maintenance routines (optimize, Validate File Integrity, optimize in that order) and, if necessary, run the installer and select [Repair].
  9. TMG 9.0

    When I try to create a descendancy narrative I get an error , and ends in Conversion error #20: Unknown error
  10. TMG 9.0

    Ken, Is your issue how to get reports to Word from TMG 7? If so, Jim's reply tells you how to deal with that. Or is your issue how to do a direct import from TMG to Legacy?
  11. TMG 9.0

    Is this the issue? From TMG 9 help... Note: If you are using Microsoft Word 2013, you should choose the Rich Text Format (RTF) file type to save the report rather than the Microsoft Word (DOC) file type. This tabular report is not compatible with the table structure used in Microsoft Word 2013. This applies to Word 2013 and later and .DOC files produced by TMG 7 and later. You may need to save your TMG reports as .RTF files rather than as .DOC files. Also note that you have a 30-day trial period after first running TMG9 that should be enough time to do the move to Legacy. btw... I see that Legacy 10 is finally in beta testing.
  12. TMG 9.0

    I am trying to convert to Legacy 9.0, unfortunately TMG 7 will not produce reports in MS Word. It only reads TMG v9 files. Is there any way to get TMG 9? Ken
  13. Missing Exhibits on reports

    I found the problem... image size was too big to embed ... I knew it was something I was missing, thanks Jim!
  14. Missing Exhibits on reports

    Just have "large" exhibits selected...
  15. Missing Exhibits on reports

    Different reports have different exhibit options. You've checked the report options on the Exhibits tab and selected the exhibit options that you want? I'm also assuming that you are not using images embedded in PDF files since these are not image files and can't be used as person and event images.
  16. I am starting to add photos to people and images for events, all external, so I can start using SecondSite. I know I'm missing something though as these photos/images are not appearing in any of my reports at the TMG level. I can see them in the Exhibits log. What am I missing please?
  17. "Variable Go Term Not found" msg in windows 11

    Yes. It was very helpful.
  18. Source Reminders

    Susan, glad to hear that worked.
  19. "Variable Go Term Not found" msg in windows 11

    Yes, when you move a project to a new system, all the old paths follow. Did you read the article that Michael recommended?
  20. "Variable Go Term Not found" msg in windows 11

    Guys Thanks for the info. It was my exhibits path that was having a problem. I selected default when I opened the project again and this issue went away., funny Thing: The "default" path is the one I originally setup. At least that is what is seems like as all of my exhibits are displayed when checking. Thanks again.
  21. That's not a screenshot. It's the link to the previous topic on this issue. This is how the message board handles a link to another topic.
  22. Source Reminders

    Many thanks to Michael for the solution.
  23. Source Reminders

    Thank you so much. I was easily able to follow your directions and the source reminders work just like they should. She is very happy to have her TMG fully functioning again. Thank you, Susan
  24. "Variable Go Term Not found" msg in windows 11

    Jim has given you the appropriate pointers to what is almost certainly the cause of your problem. He mentioned the "User program data folder" and included a truncated screenshot from Rod. If you have not seen the screen Rod included before, you access it from within TMG under the Help menu by selecting the menu item "Access Folders". That screen will also identify the location of the "User program data folder" as the second item in the screen, which is cut off in the above screenshot. Where the installer "expects" various data to be in Windows 11 is almost certainly not the old computer locations which the Restored project still points to. As Jim said, you update the pointers for your new computer in Preferences for that Project. There is one path defined in "Program Options / General", but most are in "Current Project Options / Advanced". Finally, if you have not already seen it, I strongly recommend you review Terry Reigel's excellent web page listing all the things you need to do when you transfer TMG and a project to a new computer, operating system, or version of TMG. He specifically describes how to update the paths Jim is indicating in that page. See: https://tmg.reigelridge.com/new-computer-version.htm Hope this helps, Michael
  25. There's a discussion of this issue. The error basically has to do with the paths used by TMG for the various data folders and typically occurs when running TMG in a virtual environment or on a Mac under Parallels. There are solutions in that topic. The question... Is the restored project using the default TMG data paths? The restored project might have been using an incompatible path for one of the settings. Check Preferences for the project path settings and make sure all are set to the defaults. %%%%%%%%%% The *.lo files are here... C:\Users\(user account name)\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9 The folder can be accessed from TMG. Help menu / Access Folders / select User Program Data Folder / [Open]
