  1. Blank Family Group Sheets

    Is it possible to print blank family group sheets? My wife and I are off to a Canadian Genealogy Conference on Thursday (October 20, 2016) and we will be visiting the Ontario Provincial Archives. We would like to take blank sheets to record our findings.
  2. Printing Reports

    John I'm using TMG 9.05.
  3. Printing Reports

    Yes you are correct. Only the file is created and it is not displayed on the preview. I just reset the default settings for this report and re-ran it and that did not fix the problem. I have also uninstalled TMG and reinstalled and this did not help. Ok, so my problem has returned. Even though I had it working, now I still can't preview to the screen. It seems Windows 10 arbitrarily re-installs the Windows 10 PDF driver and printer along with "send to one note" neither of which I use nor want to at this time. I'm still hopeful that someone has an answer for me..
  4. Importing FTM 3 to TMG

    Can someone tell me if it is possible to import a FTM 3 project into TMG. If not what version of FTM would I need to have a back up saved in to be able to import it into TMG version 9.05? Thanks Ron
  5. Printing Reports

    Jim, I resolved the problem, I hope. I had to uninstall Microsoft's Windows 10 built-in PDF printer and then reinstall TMG's pdf printer. Seems to be working but I will have to keep an eye on it for future reports. I've tested it with Descendant Indented and List of people with a filter. thanks for your suggestions

  7. Printing Reports

    Good morning, I originally posted this on February 23, 2016 on the TMG-List and received suggestions from two list members. After trying their suggestions, I still have no solutions, so I'm posting it here in the hopes that someone on the list has the solution. As a point of interest I tried to print various reports to the screen (as well as other output options) but they all seem to want to go to a RTF file. I really need to fix this problem so any and all help is appreciated. TIA ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I hope someone has a solution to this problem. I trying to create an indented descendant chart for a specific individual and to have the output checked to go to the screen. However, each time I generate the report the output is sent to a .rtf file even though the screen preview option is the only option checked for output in the report destination portion of the report. I have reset the report to defaults but not even this has helped. Can anyone help? Ron PS I'm running Windows 10 64 bit fully patched.
  8. 2014 Conference

    I am fully aware that Bob has delegated the coordination and "planning" of this years conference to Julie Atkins and Craig Scott, but it has been some time since there has been and update (or I missed it because of email problems). If there has been and update since the 3 Mar 2014 newsletter I would appreciate it if someone could send it to me at ron.stonehouse@stonehouse.ca. Please use the subject line 2014 Genealogy Conference. Thanks
  9. Wishlist - Source Merge

    Joan, I agree and it makes a lot of sense. That's an option I never thought of. Thanks for pointing that out. Ron
  10. Wishlist - Source Merge

    The following is a conversation that I have had with Phil in Tech Support. As you can see he has suggested I post it here in case others might be interested. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Ron, I can add it to the 'Wish List' but to be honest it will carry more import and impact to the designers if you post it the Support Forum and garner some support from other users. The more folks that are clamoring for an enhancement the more apt it is to become reality. Phil At 07:18 PM 7/9/2007, you wrote: >Thanks Phil, > >The issue is two fold. >1.
