  1. TMG9 a Huge Disappointment

    Demands are different. I definitely do not want my data stored somewhere in the cloud out of my control, subject to any possible hack and misuse. I like my data stored locally - and a possibility to publish extracts. Totally agree. Do not trust having it out of my control and in the hands of an organisation which may or may not be here in 6 months time.
  2. Upgrading to V 8

    Hi, Terry Reigel has the answer here for you.
  3. Hi, I am running Windows 7, 64 bit and TMG v8.03 I have created a chart in VCF which has a file size of 1.82 mb. I have saved this to my desktop and am trying to export it to a jpeg image. The Export Image box pops and is then overlayed with the Jpeg Image Settings box which displays Quality 95 & Smoothing 0. The Generating Image message appears at the bottom of the screen. When I click the OK button on the Jpeg Image Settings I immediately get the error "Visual Chartform has stopped running" - I have waited up to 25 minutes before closing the error box which then crashes VCF. The details are as below (I have generated smaller jpegs with no problem): Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: vcf.exe Application Version: Application Timestamp: 46da0bb5 Fault Module Name: vcf.exe Fault Module Version: Fault Module Timestamp: 46da0bb5 Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 000f7da2 OS Version: 6.1.7601. Locale ID: 3081 Additional Information 1: 1663 Additional Information 2: 1663e505ad4a9d930664d7ef566c0245 Additional Information 3: 7062 Additional Information 4: 7062e302dc5d7bf67e91c7ae40cf4eaa Thanks.
  4. Thanks Virginia. For sharing rather than printing. Will explore the PDF option.
  5. The Future for TMG

    An interesting comment. Would you care to share the actual statistics and sources to support this?
  6. In Preferences I had the warnings set to "Warn when citation has no sureties". When I added my citation without sureties the warning popped however I was unable to then "Accept" or "Cancel'. I was also unable to cancel the citation entry. TMG had locked and I had the use Task Manager to get out. Turning off the warning allowed the citation to be added.
  7. v7 Installation problem

    Hi Anne, There may be something in this thread worth trying: http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index...ost&p=34514
  8. V7 Installation Problem

    What you say is correct. However it does not change the validity of the statement from Bob Velke that 'TMG v7 is designed for Vista, XP and Windows 2000.' And not everyone feels the need (or possibly can afford) to constantly upgrade. If a person is happy to use an earlier version of a product because it meets their needs, and they are willing to accept a possible lack of support from a developer, they are free to make that choice.
  9. Layout manager bug?

    Gremlins!!! Orrible little creatures they are.
  10. Layout manager bug?

    Hi Siobhan, I am using XP and just created a new layout. I exited TMG and re-opened. The layout Iwas in was the newly created one. I then followed your steps to delete it: Open layout manager Modify an existing layout (chose my new one) Delete Delete the XXX layout? Yes Close Would you like to save the current layout? No Project refreshed and re-opened instantaneously using the layout I had last opened prior to the new one. Doug
  11. V7 Installation Problem

    As Terry says, TMG v7 is designed for Vista, XP and Windows 2000. See this thread from Bob Velke announcing the release - particularly the comment 'The Master Genealogist v7.0 is native to Windows Vista but is also designed for Windows 2000 or XP.' http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index...ost&p=33921
  12. Problems installing TMG 7

    Cdahl, See this thread: http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index...ost&p=33899
  13. An old bug and a new bug

    I have experienced this also. For me it only occurs if I have entered multiple (different) citations. This seems to confuse the system so that when I click on 'Repeat last citation' the number of citations increases however I have to click on 'OK' and then go back in to see them. Doug
  14. V7 Installation Problem

    Hi Marion, The document you refer to relates to TMG v6.12 not TMG v7.0. The steps described by Jim may no longer apply.
  15. Problem when adding citation

    Hi Bob, Just tried it with the sample project and it worked fine - though I searched for a source to use. In my own data base I was in Person View. Selected an event. The Reminder window opened, I clicked on citation, clicked on the "Add a citation sign', The reminder window closed, TYPED in the number of my source, Clicked on OK, a second reminder window popped (Reminder - Source type "Book (Authored), the warning window has also popped but is behind other windows. I can get to it by dragging other windows but all windows are now inactive. I just tried again but this time I Selected an event. The Reminder window opened, I clicked on citation, clicked on the "Add a citation sign', The reminder window closed, clicked on the "Binoculars", scrolled through the Master Source List to the same source, Selected it. All worked as it should. I also tried using the "Repeat Last Citation" and that worked. It did not pop a Warning Window". However, I would expect that to be the case. It seems that the problem arises when the Source number is typed in rather than searched. Hope this all makes sense.
  16. Data Entry

    One way of doing it is: When you have the child on the screen select F4 on the keyboard. Scroll down the list on the 'Tag Type List' and select Mother-Bio (you can get there faster by typing 'MO" fairly rapidly. Click on select. if you know the number of the mother on your data base type this in where it says Parent. If not, click on the binoculars where it says Parent and search for the mother and select her. Click on OK. You can do similar if you are on the mothers screen.
  17. I agree Pierce. Whilst not everyone may wish to have this information included I would be happy to see it as one of the optional fields to include when generating reports
  18. Font Size

    If you go into TMG/File/Preferences there are a number of options for changing font size. e.g. under Data Entry, Project explorer and Lists.
  19. Reports Descendants

    Hi Pete, In my experience TMG have always given a fair upgrade price and I would be surprised if that was to change. Nor have they released new versions just for the sake of doing so. I do not know if there is an intention to change the reports however I am confident that any changes will include useful functionality in addition to some "bells and whistles".
  20. Reports Descendants

    I agree Mike, I find it very frustrating at times.
  21. Printing Ancestor Journal

    You can add my vote for getting the "redundant" option included.
