  1. Using MG Gold v9.01.000. All of a sudden the F2 key to find people or to find places, no longer works. I have no idea why. Any ideas? .
  2. F2 Key no longer working

    No, that's not it either. The F2 key used to work just fine, no matter which other applications I was running. Now, with ONLY TMG running, it still doesn't work. I'm running Windows 10 on a partition on a Macbook Pro. I'm baffled.
  3. F2 Key no longer working

    Well, I got the v9.05 installer to work as administrator, and got it all configured, but the F2 key still does nothing. Anything else it could be? Thanks very much for your help this far.
  4. F2 Key no longer working

    Hello again: I did download v9.05, but now TMG won't open. When I try to restore from backup, I get the error message: "ErrorMarker: Cannot load 32-bit DLL c:\windows\system32\bblistviewv.ocx. 113 TMGAPPOBJ.REGISTERCONTROL". When I hit "abort" another error message comes up. Any thoughts?
  5. Hello Folk: I'm using Master Genealogist Gold Edition, v.9.01.0000. Just minutes ago, I was entering data, when all of a sudden, every married woman's married surname disappeared, and the adopted surnames of people also disappeared. They are all still listed when I hit F2 (Picklist of people); for example, my Mother's Maiden name was Johnson, and her married surname was Ward; I can look her up and find her using either surname via F2, but on the details screen her married surname has disappeared! No idea why. I've checked every single "preference", etc., but no clue. Ideas? Anything appreciated. I've entered quite a bit of data today and don't really want to have to do a restore, if at all possible. Thanks "Radiohead33" (Robert Ward)
  6. Thank you very much. That does it. I have no idea why "filtered" just appeared like that. Robert
  7. All of a sudden, V9 has started messing up my latitudes and longitudes. For example, when I enter (as I do for all places that I can) I enter the given lat/long, the program seems to throw in a "\" in the latitude, which the program does not read. The result is the place listed with NO lat/long. I've tried all lat/long styles, (degrees, minutes, seconds; decimal degrees; etc.) but for no reason I can see, all of a sudden a "\" is thrown into the latitude. Help?
  8. Hello Folks: Using v9.01 Gold under Windows 7 Home Premium. I have had zero problems with this great program until just very recently. First was the inability to produce a GEDCOM file. Yesterday I was entering a "nickname" for someone, but when I hit "enter", nothing happened. I tried adding a second married name to another person (F4, name, married), and entered the info, and... nothing. No new tag appeared. I completely uninstalled TMG, and reinstalled with the new installer, restored my latest backup, but still, neither of these features are working. Cannot make a GEDCOM nor can I add name variations. What is happening? One thing I must add, is that when I reinstalled the "trial version", it did not ask for my serial number, but found it somewhere and inserted it itself. How is that possible, when I had previously completely uninstalled the program? Any help gratefully accepted Thanks
  9. Exporting descendants of one person

    I'll give it another shot, although I don't use any type of backup/sync programs. I'll do a clean reboot and try it again. Thanks.
  10. Exporting descendants of one person

    I spoke too soon. I thought it was going well. The GEDCOM export function showed 6483 people (and a few thousand families) being exported, and took over an HOUR to produce a file which, once again, was 1kb in size. "0 HEAD" is all that was in the file. I don't get it.
  11. Exporting descendants of one person

    Why uncheck the "spouses" box?
  12. Exporting descendants of one person

    Thank you. After several tries and coming up short, I now realize where I was going wrong. GEDCOM export is working as I type. I was just not doing it correctly. Thanks again.
  13. Thanks so much, Terry. The "filter" thing was indeed red, and now the variant names are back to normal. Phew! As to the GEDCOM thing, it has been posted elsewhere, but none of the suggested fixes fixed it. The problem is when I try to export a GEDCOM file, no matter if it's for a focus group or the descendants of a particular person, I cannot get an output file larger than 6kb. Usually it's 1kb. The only thing that actually appears in the file is: "0 HEADER" and that's it. Ideas?
  14. I have no idea what this means. I've done the tmp temp thing (step 1) but 2 makes no sense. I'm using Windows 7 and I find nothing called "System Control".
  15. I'm another who can't make a GEDCOM file with TMG v9.01. I've tried turning off everything, rebooting, all of it (well, not excluding the "tmp" files). Just can't get anything larger than 6kb. I've tried using a particular person and also tried a "focus grou". Same thing. Nothing. Anything else would be appreciated.
  16. Showing more than one line of a tag

    That is true, but I quite often have so many tags/info for some people, that to "Display more rows per tag" would mean having to scroll down a LOT to see it all. However, that's not really a big deal, I guess. Thanks
  17. Showing more than one line of a tag

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Life tends to get in the way, sometimes. Well, I'm not really sure. Something along the lines of "Display all text", or "Display all lines in multi-line text box", or something of that nature. Perhaps "Display all undisplayed text in multi-line text box". Not really sure. All I am sure of is that it is darned difficult to find it otherwise. Thanks for your help.
  18. Howdy: Just updated to V8.08 from V7.04. In my previous version my own "Reference" numbering system showed up in the "Reference" field (of course) of the "Other Info" box of the "Details" screen, but it also showed up in the "Name" line of the same screen. I liked it this way, for a couple of reasons. In V8.08 the reference number shows up only in the "Other Info" box. Is there some way to get the reference number to show up in the "Name" box of the details field, as it did in V7.04? One reason I prefer this, is because when I look "Father" and "Mother" tags of the details field, I can see immediately which parent was of which line. In the same way, I can see each child's reference number in the details window. Any help gratefully accepted.
  19. Reference Field not showing up as I want

    Yes! Thank you! Or as my dear, departed mother would have said: "Bless your little cotton socks". Thank you so much. Robert ("RadioHead33")
  20. Reference Field not showing up as I want

    All, but-not-quite-most, what I meant. Sorry if I've been unclear. In your screen shot, in the "name" field itself, it would look like: Mary Katherine KEEBLER (2, SO 9) (1843-1915) A child's entry on the same details screen as shown on your example would appear as: William Franklin ALEXANDER (7, SO 97) (1871- ) . See what I mean?
  21. Showing more than one line of a tag

    I, too, had this problem until reading this post. Frustrating to say the least. Reading the "Help" files on V8.08 I just assumed the Project Explorer's "Multiline text" was the answer, but no! I really must say that the correct answer is absolutely counter-intuitive. I would NEVER have found this on my own. "Show Item Tips" to me implies that a little pop-up "tip" or "hint" screen was going to come up. Sure would be nice to have this fixed in the next update. Thanks for help!
  22. Hello: Whereas I know that I can import data from several other genealogical software programs in their native file format, is it not possible to EXport my data in the same formats? I have a newly-found half-sister who uses PAF and prefers to import her data in that format. Will I have to use GEDCOM or one of the others in the export wizard? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  23. "Native File" exports

    Thanks so much for the information. I'll be checking out "Second Site" in about... oh... 5 seconds. Thanks again.
