  1. Makes sense (now!). Thanks!! ~Carol
  2. Have been getting "Insufficient Stack Space" program errors - EXCEPT when de-selecting Project data files > External Exhibits, even to 2TB drive with 1.5TB free, so have accepted I need to back up external exhibit folder separately, per John's post. No problem. Out of curiosity (and in attempt to avoid separate backups), I tried changing Compression level (last Backup Wizard screen) from Normal to Fast, Superfast and None, but still got same error each time. I know the resultant file would be huge, but can someone explain why "None" wouldn't avoid the apparently too-large SQZ file? Just trying to understand... Or, does my "Insufficient stack space" error message indicate a different problem, since I still get it with the less/no compression options? Thanks! ~Carol Hornung [Desktop WIN10 Pro, Intel i7-6700, 32GB RAM, Vipre, no cloud backups running; TMG 9.05, File Mtce tools run]
  3. Accidentally posted this in TMG8 forum, so am recapping here to continue: [TMG 9.05, Win 10 desktop] When I go to generate a generic Descendant Box, Ancestor Box or Hourglass report, the screen flickers a bit, then almost all menu items become grayed out and the only way I can exit TMG is by Task Manager > End Task. I haven't tried every single report, but the others appear to work fine. I've tried restoring the three problem report .rpt files from a backup, but those three still hang. Have Reindexed, Optimized, as well as tried to generate those reports with several different people. Before I do a re-install, I thought I'd pick your brains. Anyone else encountered this? Suggestions? ================= [Jim Byram] You're talking about VCF charts that are different from any other type of TMG report. Run the TMG v9.05 installer and select [Repair]. If that doesn't work, temporarily disable real-time scanning by your security application and see if that works. ================= [Carol Hornung] Tried both suggestions, with complete shutdown following, but problem persists. Would welcome other suggestions/next steps. Thanks. ================= [Jim Byram] The only other thing that I can suggest is to uninstall. Then delete the program folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9" And delete the installer folder "C:\ProgramData\The Master Genealogist v9 Installer" And reinstall. This will not affect your TMG data folders. ================= [Carol Hornung] Discovered same problem exists with those VCF charts on laptop (second install of TMG v9.05, Win 10). Also when trying to generate those charts using Sample.pjc. Have completely uninstalled TMG, deleted folders as Jim suggested, restarted and reinstalled. No change. If it makes any difference, a previously-saved .vc2 chart file opens in Visual Chartform without problem, with all menus functional. No new programs have been installed on either laptop or desktop since Feb 14, when I last successfully generated one of those reports. However, I see where several Win 10 Security updates were applied on Feb 13. Anyone else with 9.05 and Win 10 experiencing the problem generating those VCF chart reports?
  4. Lots of troubleshooting, but still no luck: As before (when was able to successfully generate all vc2 reports), I have McAfee up to date and running, and Windows Defender shut off entirely (through Group Policy). Have tested with all virus protection turned off, but made no difference. Had Google Drive Updater running - hoping that was the problem, so turned off entirely, as well as OneDrive, so both are turned off - but neither was syncing live TMG, only certain non-TMG folders. Made no difference. Uninstalled/shut down/reinstalled TMG 9.05; still no change. Used Charting Companion to get chart I needed for now. Leaving for out of town for two weeks (mother's 100th birthday!!) so have to put this on the back burner until I return. Maybe more luck then. Thanks for your input, Jim. To be continued...

  6. This has been summarized and continued in the TMG9 forum, where I should have posted it in the first place. Mea culpa.
  7. Tried both suggestions, with complete shutdown following, but problem persists. Would welcome other suggestions/next steps. Thanks.
  8. How do I export the Master Place List to Excel, including the designated Place Style for each entry? Thought I remember doing it but now can't find in either TMG or Utility. Thanks!
  9. John, what is the "ID" number in the first column on that HTML export?
  10. That's it John, thanks! I had tried Utility before but didn't change option from XML to HTML. This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks, all! ~Carol
  11. Even though this is an old post, I have begun to have the same problem. I believe it began when I installed the latest TMG update (to 9.05), but not totally certain. Wondered if maybe there's some extension used by both TMG and Quicken? Thanks!
  12. [using Visual Chartform 3.2] I don't seem to be able to create a 2 Point Dashed or Dotted line, whether Connector or drawn. The line is 2 Point Solid when chart is generated. If I go in to Properties for that line, I first have to enable, then disable, the Transparent check box in order to change from Solid to Dashed, as everything is grayed out. But, even though 2 Point is selected, it appears like a thinner 1 Point dashed line. Even if I go back in and (after enable/disabling the Transparent check box to un-gray choices) change from 2 Point to 1 Point to 2 Point in order to select 2 Point + Dashed (or Dotted), it comes out as 2 Point Solid. Bottom line: How do I get a 2 Point line that is not Solid? This happens whether it is a Connector line generated with the chart, or a line drawn with the toolbar button. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks! ~Carol
  13. Am looking to change the Reference field to XXX if Flag called Temp = Y, but don't see a way to do that in TMG or Utility. Suggestions? Thanks! ~Carol
  14. Am trying to get a list of IDs where my SmithFamily flag = Y and the DETAIL element of the address group (appears to be PlaceLabel2?) is not empty. I can create a report that gives me one or the other criteria filter, but not both. Appreciate help. Thanks! ~Carol
  15. Never mind - I figured it out (naturally, right after I sent the post...). Used List of Events where Place L2 > Is Not Empty AND Principal 1: SmithFamily = Y. Also decided I could have used a two-step process to first set a temporary flag to Y if Place L2 not empty, then used a different report filtering for the two flags. Love this stuff, but guess this proves I always need to take a break before giving up and posting! Thanks! ~~Carol
  16. In a Journal report, when selecting the Miscellaneous option to Group common birth places, is there any way to get a comma to separate the previous phrase from the "born in" phrase? Currently I get the following output: "Children of Mary Ann Smith and Joe Brown all born in Evansville, Indiana, are as follows:" There really should be a comma after the father's last name, but I don't see where to change that. Again, this is in a Journal Report, only when Group common birth places is selected on the Miscellaneous tab. Thanks! ~Carol
  17. In my Journal report, the names added as Name-Variation are all caps, whereas parent, child, etc. names are upper/lower, as specified on the Names tab of Report Options. Where do I specify that I want those Name-Variation names to be upper/lower also? ~Carol
  18. Journal Report - Name-Variation tags

    Name-variations are entered as upper/lower, just like primary names. As a test, I switched one of the name-variations to primary, and still got the same result: primary name in report was upper/low and variation was all upper. However, I just realized this was only happening in the child's section of the journal report. So the child's entry in a Journal report looks like this, even though Child names on Names tab of Report Options is set to No Caps: 10. i. Mary Philomena Metz3 (40) was also known as MARY P METZ (40). To test, I again switched the child's name-var to primary, and got the same result of name-var all upper and primary mixed. Also get same result whether Include Surname and/or Honor Name Font Style & Color are checked under Child Names.
  19. Is there any way to change the Source endnote numbering in an Individual Detail report from Roman numerals to regular numbers? It gets pretty crazy when you have a lot of them. Thanks! ~Carol
  20. Thanks, Virginia! That's a very acceptable workaround.
  21. Am looking to create a List of People report that tells me where I have forgotten to change a woman's name from Primary to Married name in her death or burial tag. I have Report Filter set to # of Death Group tags is greater than zero AND Sex = F AND Name-Marr # of Citations is greater than zero, but can't figure out how to filter for only those whose name was left at Primary Name on the Death Tag Entry screen. Thanks for any help/suggestions! ~Carol
  22. Am creating a vcf Descendant Box Chart using the Other > Blanks for Missing Data option so we can readily see what BMD info is missing. Works great, except I was hoping a TMG Marr Never tag would prevent the "m. __ ___ ___" line from appearing on the chart. Suggestions? Thanks! ~Carol
  23. Robin - I really like your suggestion of the Descendant-Note tag, and can see quite a few uses for it. Thanks! ~Carol
  24. Even though I have added the "reference to duplicate person" line for Duplicate people in Box contents, and have Reference to duplicate person at bottom set to (Duplicate), the line still doesn't show up for two people who appear in two different places on the chart (first cousins married each other - explains a LOT in the family...). I even added an element (Lifespan) that I'm not using anywhere else in the chart to Duplicate People and it does not show up in either place they appear, so it appears VCF (TMG?) is not recognizing them as "duplicate people" here, even though the ID number is the same in both places. Is it perhaps because in the first spot they appear, the female is listed in the top box and male in the indented spouse box, and later in the chart, the male is primary and female listed as spouse? (I think I may have just answered my own question here...) Or, is there some other setting/tag that needs to be enabled for the Duplicate line to appear in one of the two places they are referenced in the chart?
