  1. Printing reports to .pdf file

    And I appreciate your input. Thanks very much!
  2. Printing reports to .pdf file

    Problem solved. I had .rtf files associated with Word (by default), and I don't have Word! So I downloaded Libre Office, associated .rtf files with that, and...BINGO! Whew!

  4. Printing reports to .pdf file

    Is there a way to attach this thread to http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index.php?/topic/17966-report-screen-preview-not-working/&_fromLogin=1#replyForm
  5. Report Screen Preview not working

    Jim, in our other thread, you said, "TMG uses .RTF as intermediate files in the print output process." So it appears that for those of us who are having the problem under discussion, TMG (or Windows) isn't allowing the process to complete (i.e., go from the intermediate .rtf file to the final .pdf file). So now all we have to do is determine what's stopping the process perhaps???
  6. Report Screen Preview not working

    I just found this thread -- which seems to reflect the same problem I'm having. Was there ever a solution found? My old notebook (still in my possession) and my new notebook are all Windows 10 with TMG installed. Both my Screen Preview and actual Printer job go to the temp folder.
  7. Printing reports to .pdf file

    P.S. You said this previously: The Wholly Genes PDF Writer v4 printer driver doesn't work under Windows 10. This means that the Save to / Adobe Reader (PDF) selection won't work. Use the 'Microsoft Print to PDF' printer driver. You print to printer and select the 'Microsoft Print to PDF' driver as the printer.
  8. Printing reports to .pdf file

    There were problems with using the TMG PDF printer driver in Windows 10, although I don't recall what they were. CutePDF and the MS Print to PDF worked fine on my old computer (also Windows 10). Now, however, the PDFs are going somewhere -- I shouldn't have to go digging for them! ("File exported to C:\USERS\JMADN\LOCAL\TEMP\TMGS51261679\_5KF.....rtf"). It shouldn't be a .rtf file and perhaps I'm supposed to be directing the file elsewhere manually.
  9. Printing reports to .pdf file

    Do you mean in Report Destination? If so, I haven't chosen Save to Adobe Reader. I have "Save to Printer." My understanding is that I don't want to use the TMG PDF printer driver. As far as I can tell, my settings are the same as on my old computer, which worked fine. Is there someplace I can tell to report where to save to rather than having it go to a temp file that's trickier to find than having the .pdf icon in my task bar or a logical place for reports? I don't recall how I may have set that up in the past (even with all my notes!). And why would it be saved as an .rtf file?
  10. New computer, TMG installed, and most everything seems to be okay...so far. I've chosen Microsoft Print to PDF, but my reports are being saved to a temp file. I'm not finding an option as to where I would like to report to go. On my old computer, it would show up in my task bar, but not on my new one/ I don't ever remember having to choose a place for the report to be sent, and it was so simple to just open the file from the task bar. I tried this with CutePDF also. In addition, the file is being saved as an .RTF file, not a .PDF. Where did I go wrong?
  11. Filter for flag

    Well, I guess I'll just have to check questionable people on the report to see if I need to change their flag.
  12. Filter for flag

    If I understood correctly, I made the default "?" for this particular group. Everyone who I added to my database previously has marked "?" and the Smiths are marked "Y." However, I had added some new people before I changed the Smith default, and I want to be sure they're not marked "Y." First-time around, I failed to make the default "?" Your instructions worked perfectly. Thank you very much. Oops! Not quite so perfectly, as there are some extra people on the list. I checked their flags for the Smith group, and they're "?" Yet not everyone with a "?" for the Smith group is on the list. Hmmm.... This may be way out on left field -- or not! -- but the reason I'm following the Smith family is because my husband has a DNA connection with someone for whom we can't find a connection. Now that I'm looking at the output from my list, I'm seeing names that we're considering as possible connections (even though we're not sure how). Is it possible that TMG is "seeing" a connection that we're missing (I wish!) even though they're marked with a "?)? Probably not. I just found someone who doesn't seem to fit at all. I guess that was a pipe dream at best.
  13. Filter for flag

    Okay. I have a flag for a particular family not related to me. Let's call that the SMITH GROUP. I may have accidentally added some people to this group who don't belong. (After I posted the original message in this thread, I figured out how to change the default, so I hope that won't happen again!) So...Report, List of People, Filtered group, User Filter 1 (for example), Add(?), find the SMITH GROUP...and then what do I use for "Value"? Or am I missing a step? I was thinking I should use "Y" for the value, but when I do, I'm getting a message, "178 qualified people found. Are you sure you want to change CONNECTED #1 flag to "Y" for these people?" I'm obviously doing something quite wrong because I don't want to change the flag but want to see is a list of people for whom I've already used "Y" (for "yes") to see who doesn't belong in that flagged group. Hope that helps...and thanks for your reply.
  14. Filter for flag

    I would like to set up a filter for a particular flag. I've gotten as far as List of People, Filtered group, user filter (whatever number), add, and have found and clicked on the name of the flag. What do I add for Operator and Value? Also, how do I change the default for a particular flag? If I don't watch what I'm doing, I'm getting "Y" for a group when I add people who aren't in that group. (That's why I need to set up the filter -- so I can determine who doesn't belong in a particular Flag group. ) I just figured that out.
  15. Backup file suddenly smaller

    Thanks, Jim, for checking the backups. You found that "The project in the larger backup has not been optimized." I obviously have to optimize more often. WHEW!
