    I have forgotten how to print out the narrative file. for report options.

    I get the print page but can't get it to print and it is like a pop-up and you can see the TMG page. in the background

    .  The chart is just for me - I used it like quick notes or memo notes. I wrote my own story and didn't use the package to write

    If anyone is there can you please reply.?  I just want two charts. Expected to be completed in 2000.

    Now I can't get the print page. It was a fluke.

    Many thanks

      I have no idea what you are asking.

      Start with which report and state exactly what you are trying to do.

  3. back up problem

    Hello Michael Yes I tried to open sqz . However Jim has done a couple of gedcom files for me Many thanks
  4. Hello Using Version 8 British I will attend to my Gedcom issue (below) later. However I had a driver problem and thought it may be related to TMGW problem. It has been removed. While preparing for transferring data I looked in one of my recent and a later date backup files. When I open it I get the message that ..."does not appear to be a valid JCP file." I cannot see how this has happened. Can anyone give me any ideas please?
  5. Hi Jim Yea about that many people. I have notepad storage as I just saw it while doing some trouble shooting. No Idea what it is about. I have hundreds of Dropbox files but cant remeber when iIlast used them. I will have a loook. First i have a major problem I just posted. I seem to have a problem with my back ups that hs to be fixed. I lost my previous post to this post. You will find this horrific but I have never used TMGW as intended. I found it very boring and nothing I would be intersted in doing. Also the information is so stilted it is not me., I am a history major and just used TMGW for for BDM's and used memos for anything else. I did use sources. My research is in an organised system in Word. I only have one family to complete and the rest is being typeset. But I still want to keep my data.. I have another project that just has data and I may do some charts one day. Yes I am happy to purchase version 9 andhave you do two projects on a consultancy basis. How can we proceed? I have another day I can't work. All my programmes i use had some problems all of asudden and I have been trouble shooting for days. I also have a bibliography package and that had a problem. I have windws 7 64 bit. I should have completed my book 3 years ago. I changed my Word template to accomodate my typesetters Design pakage as spoused were not lining up etc. So I have to get the charts done so i can change back to my normal template. I found my word docs lost their settings. I am usng arial 8 in TMGW and I have to do his margins. King regards Kaye

  7. Many thanks Jim I will have a look. Finishing by Dec 24. I hope. I didnt think I could still get version 9. Ilost myu post but reg
  8. creating a gedcom file

    Thanks Michael so much, luckilly soemthing came up and I was unable to do it yesterday. Cheers
  9. Hello I really need to create a gedcom of my projects. I can see how to do it via wizard. I wond loose my data will I? I dotn really think so.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. Lost data out of TMGW 8 after cleaning with windows ccleaner. I am in real strife, I have a back up, but the last TMGW disc I have is Version 7. I also did a "repair" in programmes and this has caused a problem 1. Open tmgw and it shows box message "Repair mode activated". Close it and programme opens.. 2. No data showing in last or sample. 3, Try and restore sqz. from c drive. Message Variable LATEMP not found. 44 FRMWIZRESTORE.WIZFRAMEI.PAGE1.CONT.INIT ( COULDNT GET ANY OF THE PASTE OPTIONS TO WORK. GRR) Abort that and another message.. 4. Get another message in repair mode stating that the sample not found sample\sample_ND.dbf 4. Press ok and shuts TMGW. I ALSO WENT INTO PROJECTS AND CLICKED ON THE ONE I WANTED AND GOT ANOTHER REPAIR MESSAGE Alias not found 592 copydict. I gave up after this. Of course I cannot download from wholly genes. Can anyone help please?
