  1. Report Screen Preview not working

    my Windows 10 .doc and .docx defaults were set properly upon delivery of my laptop. So there is nothing to change there and thus not a solution. Thx John for putting this here... Tracey
  2. Report Screen Preview not working

    I have the same problem as Lynn. Lynn, thanks for posting to this forum. John of SS suggested I look here. For Jim's sake, I'll summarize my actions to date. I'd sure like to hear of a solution. Tracey Milligan
  3. The Discontinuation Of TMG

    my suggestion for the following complaints: I should have been offered a discount (after EOS announcement) on TMG 9, and especially after using TMGx for x number of years. TMG was outdated TMG was not competitive Updates were too expensive (really?) switch to another genealogy program that is in release - and get engaged in their forum. You did not care then, you should not care now, and you should stop complaining. I, with my TMG, am not going anywhere.
  4. The Discontinuation Of TMG

    "If TMG were a superior product, or even truly competitive, it would be attracting new users by the carload" I completely agree with John and hope no discounts are offered. Especially to those that gripe about the product! TMG has always been an outstanding product, best in class, in my opinion...and I have trialed nearly all, supposed competition. Only exception, would be for those who are unable to appreciate its' capabilities. I'll keep using TMG for as long as I possibly can.
  5. Bio Tag Types

    many years ago when I first started to use TMG, and in my very first project, it seems my defaults for Bio tags were; Mother-Bio, Father-Bio, Dau-Bio & Son-Bio. So eveytime I added a child or parent, it would use one of these tags. Recently, I took my girlfriends data (gedcom) from her Legacy software, exported as gedcom and imported to a new project (hers) in my TMG. Now all of her Bio tags in TMG are; Child-Bio & Parent-Bio. I now have fewer Bio tags making less of a distinction of gender. I would prefer that they were; Father, Mother, Dau & Son but, it seems almost an impossibility to change them all. Is there a preferred tag type and is there a way to change these Bio tags globally with out losing the parent-child linkages. thx Tracey
  6. Bio Tag Types

    Jim & Michael, thank you for your expertise. this explains why I later observed many persons without a gender. At first, it never occurred to me to examine the sex flags more closely. I think the Legacy export to gedcom did not go well at all. Once I get this cleaned up, I'll buy my girlfriend TMG software. thanks again Tracey
  7. Export to GEDCOM very unreliable

    upgrading to 8.02.000 fixed my export to gedcom problems.
  8. Export to GEDCOM very unreliable

    removed TMG8, did a new, clean install of TMG8, upgraded to 8.0.1, disabled antivirus, still not able to export database to gedcom. Getting same errors and resulting file is corrupted, 1/4 size of a known good gedcom file. Next step will be to go back to v.7 and see from there. V. 8 was working just fine for a month or so. Tracey
  9. Export to GEDCOM very unreliable

    I'm having the same problems with exporting my data to a gedcom. I've been exporting without any issues until this morning. This morning, similar error message as others; "File Access is denied [..TEMP....tmgnnnnnn_file_e.fpt 4397MSUBSTITUTION_E". me thinks something has happened with TMG but, I'm going try some other things first. System restore to previous state.... disabling antivirus would be my last resort as I have not seen this problem before this morning. Tracey
