  1. Ok, something strange happened between my mishap yesterday and my writing this help query, and today, when List of..... has "mysteriously" reappeared in the Report menu. It was totally gone after my mishap and I was sure I'd really done something horrible. I even rebooted the program, and it still wasn't there. I will not be distressed now that it has "fixed" itself. Or, I am really going blind. Sorry for the panic button ......., but I thank you for the quick reply...
  2. I was trying to follow instructions of Michael Hannah which was posted on 1 May 2017 regarding making a list of a citation containing only a certain set of people. He was trying to help rigleason51 who asked the question on that same date. "List of people Source Report." I found, that I could also use these instructions to isolate just 5 people from one citation. However, something happened, the program crashed, kept asking me to make a decisions of many "things" I had no idea what to hit. So, I aborted the program, and all my data seemingly came back, except when I went to look under the Tools bar for the List of.... it wasn't there. How can I fix this? I thought I had Gold Edition version 9, but when I went to look it says it's version 8.08.0000.
  3. I've got version 8, and we would like to make an Ancestor Box Chart, showing just my husband direct Thomas line. I have them separated in the project manager, but then can't seem to find the place to mark on the Ancestor Box Chart, to just show those twelve ancestors. He would like to show just his direct ancestors to send to his DNA group to help find links.
  4. One-page-charts

    I'm trying to create a box chart between my husband and the furthest ancestor in one family line only. How can I do that? I have created a direct line in the Project Explore, but can't seem to get only that line to produce a one page chart. Need help please.
  5. Read Only?

    Today I transferred my TMG program from an XP computer which was giving me problems to a newer Windows 7 computer. Everything transferred seemingly ok, but it seems I cannot add to existing data. I can add a new tag and enter data on it, but cannot add onto an existing tag. Also, everything seems intact in the narrative report. Have I inadvertently restored it by checking/not checking a read only button? And can I fix this somehow? My Windows 7 computer does not have microsoft word on it, as I was using it for another purpose when I bought it, not intending to have to use it for TMG. Would this have anything to do with my original problem?
  6. I tried both a Doc and RTF and got the same error code #6.
  7. Thanks for you patience Virginia. >>I found a similar error msg reported from an earlier TMG version; the solution in that case was to run TMG as an administrator: >>Rightclick on the desktop TMG icon, select Properties / Compatibility / Privilege level - run this program as an administrator. I don't have a "Privilage level" listed. What shows up is: Compatibility modes; which is grayed out and only shows older versions of Windows, than my XP. display settings (mostly colors) and Input settings. I couldn't find anyplace to tell me to run as administrator. >>You did not say what output you were using for the reports - preview, Word, PDF. . . . ? Do you have a default printer selected I'm trying to output to preview, then to print from there if I'm satisfied with the way the report looks. Yes, using windows default printer.
  8. Sorry for the delay in answering you. My other life took over my time. G. I took the time and tried the whole list of reports and they all failed with the same "Conversion error #6: One or more errors in configuation file." EXCEPT the following: These worked as they should: Ancestor Box Chart Audit Descendant Box Chart Descendant Indented Narrative Individual Narrative Journal Pedigree Relationship Chart DThom
  9. I did as instructed above, about three time and still got the same error message each time. DThom
  10. I get this error code when trying to print a Family Group Sheet. I've tried sending a report to you, but apparently you didn't get one, as I've not heard from you. When I go to print the FGS, a box comes up with "Conversion Error #6: One or more errors in configuration file". What should I do? I'm using Vers. 8.2 on an XP windows system. DThom
  11. Creating my own sentence

    P. S. I'm using the new version 8.2.
  12. I'm trying to create the following sentence: [P] <was|and [PO] were> ancestors of President [W] <[M]> However upon saving with all the names in place P, PO, and W. when I go to save it consistently defaults to: [P] <was|and [PO] were> ancestors of President "[P]" <[M]> (without the quotes). That is not what I'm trying to say. What am I doing wrong? DThom
  13. This is my first post and hopefully the moderator will move it to the appropriate forum. Recently I had a lock-up and had to abruptly leave TMG. I "think" this is when the Reference Field which had been in the "Other Info Box" on the Details page disappeared. I have tried numerous times to customize (right click in the box), but the customize word remains grayed out and will not let me access the prior list that I originally used to customize. I've look through the Preferences List, also several times, but can't seem to find the setting to "fix" it. The only way to access the Reference Field now is on a new entry, and I have an occasional need to modify that field on previous entries. Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix this? DThom
