  1. Hello Jim Ignore this post thank you Thank you. It was definitely showing bold in the surname and couldn't fix it. I did another default setting and got bold surname text back. However, I am now getting "Jasmine (--?--)" when I don't have a surname. In names, I have spouses checked. In names, I have surname caps which I use, but it is showing "empty name text (--?---)." Now I cannot see what I have done to cause this. My memory, as you can guess, is not what it was. I won't have many people who don't have a surname. I looked into report output and I found the same family and no I don't have (--?--).showing. i went into another project and it is the same setting in names.. Sorry about this.I appreciate your assistance. Edit. Hold off on this as I deletedd it and did another chart but cannt find the family. Checking it out
  2. Hello Jim Yes this worked thanks. I now have another problem. I reset the fonts and colours. I wanted surname in Bold and I set that in the fonts and clours. All the rest of document I checked and they were "regular.". I saved the settings but I cannot get surname bold back in reports Have you any ideas, please?. I checked this four times.I notice there are several options for bold. I use Arial. One is narrow etc kind regards
  3. Sorry, have version 7. My typesetter is having trouble with my charts fitting.I give him a Word copies for each family. He won't give me a margin suggestion. I looked at "options" again to see what I could do. Messed around with index (didn't need it) Now when I create a chart it doest collect data for that family but in the right-hand corner, it starts counting " Progenitors." It was counting up 2nd generations and 700,000 (haven't got this number of people) and knew I had done something wrong. How do I enable indexes, please? I unticked everything in but it is still happening. Can't stop it and have to close the programme. Your assistance appreciated. Going to print asap and I am completing charts. Just checked another project and although index filled in as per default (I think) it still counts" Progenitors." It was counting up 2nd generations and 700,000+ . Must be something else. Thank you. I hope someone can help. I am in a lather. Regards
  4. When I started this research back in version 2 privacy was not an issue and I was provided with full personal details such as DOB. Things have changed. I haven't been asked to hide these details by anyone, but I want to and the book is in the process of being printed. It is for family only but talking about 10,000 people. I have regular newsletters I send out but still, no one has asked me. Is it too late now? I do not want to change my whole database unless it is reversible. Cheers
  5. See my original post in this thread. <TMG v8.8 will run fine on the latest version of Windows 10> So yours will too as it is earlier. But I will let Jim answer.. This thread is about changing from Win 7. Kaye
  6. Thanks Jim Just one confirmation. Does this mean that I will not have any descendants vertical lines? I ran RTF reports but they still opened in Word 2010. They are in my output reports as RTF. I don't believe it is possible to get vertical lines in charts in RTF. Is this correct. The fact that they are opening in Word 2010 is the only reason I am getting lines. I just need to be sure on this point. Otherwise I will try and keep Word 2010 when I update. My tech will have to do this. regards
  7. Hi again Jim Thank you. I have been online and so many providers!. I will have to get back to you later just to check if you don't mind. I have spoken to my tech and will need another computer so cleaning up all my old files albeit I have an external hard drive, but also want another back up. I want the Microsoft Office Professional pack 2019. It works on windows 10. Now this is a different cup of tea because I do all descendant charts, and they download into Word 2019? It is so cheap at the moment. If I don't have to download I will try and get it now. Is this ok? I have another question on these charts and now my typesetter has come up with putting into pdf and he can make it smaller. Too small I think. So I need help on this. I will put in another thread later and attach a sample as I don't think many people use this and a bit of a misunderstanding last time. You need a sample. Thanks for you help. I didn't see myself still writing in 2010 and still using TMG.
  8. Hello Jim Just looked at the latest reviews of Windows 10. It sounds like they got rid of the problems and it will be the last one on this type platform. They are releasing one new update next month and other updates includes Windows 10 Lite, Has this been used for TMGW do you know? Many thanks.
  9. Thank you Jim. Bit worried about Win 10. When it first came out it had a lot of problems.. I have no choice now. How do I mark this as answered?. After all these years I still don't now albeit I have asked a few people.
  10. I have been hanging on to Windows 7 64 bit. Microsoft support coming to an end. What is the latest Windows version that will support (British) TMG version 8.8 please? I am racing to complete my work before Jan 2020 when Win 7 comes to an end. I can print out descendant indented charts before then I hope. I need these to work in any compatible Win version. Thank you
  11. Hello Jim No I am asking about descendant indented chart , not box. I can see more options when I put in indented cart but can't see anything about lines. I thought I could alter them. Perhaps it is something in Word I can do. But I am going to leave it to the typesetter. He has since told me to change margins and he will do the rest.. Yes Virginia answered about lines. But that was a long time ago. regards Kaye
  12. Hello I looked through the forum and found my post on descendants chart. this is different If I take my first ancestor and do a chart for my family for example it is too wide to fit into a book. It is not really important because my typesetter will change this. I am leaving it in Word. . I want to know how to change the space between the lines. Now Virginia did an example but this chart is nothing like mine which has a line directly from each descendant. For example mine has 6 lines in the first page on and seven on page two and then it reduces. The next family member has one less. She mentioned changing the pixels but I cant see how I can do this in word. I don't want and image.I want to reduce them just a bit. .If it is too hard I will leave it to my typesetter. Many thanks. I don't want to send the charts.
  13. Hello Jim Before I go any further. Yes, I have the welcome screen and can get into my programme. But my sample project and my projects are both empty. In order to even restore my back up I get a lot of messages as I have described. It is impossible for me to go any further. No my projects are in different folders. I will email you personally as cannot do what you have requested. When I click on projects the sample is empty and my two projects show as Project Family_PJC.. But I get a message that says "an error happened when opening the data tables". It gives my location as not found. However it is in that location in my documents under Master Genealogist then under projects my Samples is in a folder and one for UK as well and the rest are all files from one of my projects but no folder. I must see why this is happening first. There are too many things happening and each time it is something different. I will get back to you. cheers PS I just want to explain that projects is the only function that works in my programme.. Yet in my documents I have all my logs, output files back ups etc.
