  2. Printing visual chart to pdf

    I suspect that you need to use a printer driver other than the Win11 driver.
  3. Printing visual chart to pdf

    Terry, I tried following Robin’s steps and think they may have been written for an earlier version of Windows, as I am unable to replicate them in Win11. I searched online and found directions for changing printing preferences that involved creating a new form with customizable dimensions, but when I went back to print the chart to pdf the new, custom form was not listed ( I had saved it and it does appear when I go back into printer settings). Frustrating, as I remember working my way through this a few years back and remember the solution was getting to a point where I could edit the print to pdf dimensions to accommodate the actual chart dimensions, but can’t accomplish it now. Would be nice if Microsoft would just let you edit dimensions at the point of printing. I’m sure Ancestry Printing will work though. Ed

    Thanks Terry, I’ll try Robin’s solution, and it’s nice to know about ancestryprinting as an alternative. Ed
  5. Printing visual chart to pdf

    Ed, You may find Robin Lamacraft's article on my website helpful. It's at https://tmg.reigelridge.com/Robin-saving.htm As an alternative, another user told me he used the printing service of https://ancestryprinting.com/ and was happy with the results. They can print directly from the VCF file.
  6. I posted about this in 2019 and I'm back again. I was able at that time to create a wide printable descendant chart and get it printed at a printing service. I've reviewed what worked as a solution at that time, but I've since changed laptops (was running a Mac with Parallels and am now on a Win11 machine). I've created a chart in TMG9 using its visual cart function. The problem last time was changing the settings in the Microsoft print to pdf printer so that it would print the entire chart as a single page pdf, reading the chart dimensions in TMG and then changing the pdf printer settings to accommodate that size page. All this so that I could take the chart to a printing service and have it printed as a wide chart. I've read online posts suggesting I could go to >printer settings>manage, but can't find any such option on my machine. Am I missing a simple solution? Ed Dunscombe
  7. PROBLEM SOLVED! In the Quicken Community, someone asked about the same problem I was having with Quicken and then said he found the solution on his own: RAV Endpoint Protection had been installed apparently having been bundled with another program. I remembered seeing a popup about RAV, so I went into Control Panel, checked my list of programs, and voila! There was RAV! So I installed it, and all is well. Whew!
  8. I restart my system every morning, and during the "problem period," I was experimenting with "shut down" versus "restart" frequently. This is getting more and more weird. Yesterday all was well...and today I'm back to not being able to add a person! Interestingly, I'm having an issue with four different programs, all of which suddenly worked yesterday and are having problems again today: My PIM syncing with my phone, WordPerfect (which starts up on the second try), Quicken (which saves on the second try) and TMG (for which I can't add a person but seem to be able to do everything else). What makes this more curious is that yesterday suddenly all was well...and today not! I wish I knew what to look for!
  9. Have you tried restarting your system?
  10. Suddenly when I attempt to add a person (wife, husband, etc.), I'm getting the following error message, which I hope I've typed correctly because I was unable to Print Screen! File access is denied: C:\users\jmadn\appdata\local\temp\tmg52342951\apfdef.dbf.94FRMAPSelector.MRUNAP It seems odd (to me, at least) that it appears that it's a "temp" file, but I don't know enough about this to pass judgment! Meanwhile, I'm stuck and unable to add new people. I optimized and validated with no errors. So...help! Judy Madnick
  11. .fpt error

    Charles, I have heard mentioned of a rare few cases where the specific filters "Is empty" and "Is not empty" do not work, as reported in my on-line list of remaining bugs in TMG9. I am not totally surprised that a different report will work with that filter as that seems common. If you care you might try the operator "Contains" in an Individual Detail report if you can think of something like the text "the" which they will all contain. P.S. I am still actively using TMG9 with SecondSite output.
  12. Missing Exhibit Files

    That's the name of the file. Check the folder where your exhibit files are stored. Of course, if it's missing, it won't be there.
  13. Missing Exhibit Files

    Hey Jim, I found and fixed 4 of the "Missing Exhibit Files" When I back up I now get 1 missing exhibit file. So in the log it is simply named "Project1.jpg" and image #268. I have tried to find it searching in TMG but was unable to do so. Any ideas on how to find/delete it? Thank ag ain. Mary
  14. Missing Exhibit Files

    I did a bit more digging and found it. I was actually looking for it in the Projects Folder but it is in the Backup folder both in the TNG v9 folder. thanks a bunch!! Problems found and soon to be solved! Mary
  15. Missing Exhibit Files

    The name of the file is 'Last VFI.log'. The filetype is .'log'. You can edit image files in the Exhibit Log. It is always better to use an external image editor rather than this built-in editor.
  16. Missing Exhibit Files

    Hi Jim, I did as instructed but when I look at the log I do not see a "Last VFI.log" file. I see file types of CDX, DBF and FPT but no VFI. BTW I have never used the exhibit edit feature. Just for my own curiosity/information what does the exhibit edit feature do and how do you access it? thanks....Mary
  17. Missing Exhibit Files

    Run File / Maintenance / Validate File Integrity. Select 'Search for missing external exhibits'. Make sure that it has your exhibits folder selected. After VFI completes, exit TMG. Check the 'Last VFI.log' file in the project folder. That should identify the missing external exhibits. (If you've ever used the exhibit edit feature, the last version of the exhibits that were edited could be missing and that can be a permanent missing exhibits error that's of no real consequence.)
  18. Was wondering if one of you experts could help me. So I have a large Exhibit file and when I do a backup on a project I get a message that backup was complete but "5 Exhibit Files not found". What does this mean? Thanks a bunch! Mary
  19. .fpt error

    I moved my main data set to RootsMagic almost 9 years ago and, from there, to Family Historian about 2.5 years ago.
  20. .fpt error

    Jim I tried running a individual narrative asking to print out all obits whose memo was not empty and I got a perfect print out of all 1379 obits. Which solves the original problem I had. Individual detail still does not work for same output. Many thanks for your help. Do you still use TMG9 or have you switched?
  21. .fpt error

    You are getting both a exhibit .FTP error and reports with missing text? There are separate issues? If so you have damage to more than one table. TMG 9 was created using Visual FoxPro 9 with Service Pack 2 (plus additional add-ons and libraries). For example, GenBridge and the report manager are additional libraries.
  22. .fpt error

    Jim Unfortunately all my backups have same issue. I have tried multiple replacements of both files and all come up with same extra garbage in the printout. What databse was used to create these data file?
  23. .fpt error

    Did you try to replace the files with those from a recent backup? That's easy if you have a backup with an undamaged .FPT file. You must replace both the .DBF and .FPT files. Editing the files requires proper tools and then you need to locate the damaged .FPT memo(s) and that's non-trivial.
  24. .fpt error

    Is there a way to get into the actual data file to correct it? Many thanks.
  25. .fpt error

  26. .fpt error

    This doesn't help since I have no context. This is a Individual Detail report (with default settings) for Ann Pulis (don't know her birthname) who has one Obituary event (and no exhibits appear to be involved in the report)?
