  1. Support to UK Versions of TMG

    You can still buy a license (unlock code) for TMG 9 from Harry Goegebeur. You can download and install the UK edition. See the pinned article in the TMG 9 section of this forum. An unlock code is only valid for the version (full number) of TMG it was issued for, and has no other value. So your v8 code is good if you want to stay with v8, otherwise you need to buy a new one for v9. You can find user-to-user support here and on the TMG list on Rootsweb. This forum is supported financially by Bob Velke, the developer of TMG, and I expect it will continue as long as he does that. The support is provided by users, just as with the TMG List on Rootsweb.
  2. Tag Type list hidden

    You're welcome, Gloria. I don't how understand either, but that issue does appear from time to time.
  3. Tag Type list hidden

    Gloria, You mean the list of all Tags for that person, right? The window is there but it's empty? If that's the case you probably see a red "Filtered" at the top right. If so, right-click anywhere in the empty window and on the menu that appears about half way down you will see the "Filter for..." Choose that item, and click on whichever item has a check mark.
  4. Locked out serial number not working

    It may take a while. Remember, the TMG business is closed and there are no support people there anymore. At last report, another employee occasionally looks at serial number requests.
  5. Be aware that if you have installed free updates after you installed from the original disk that re-installing from the disk is likely to leave you unable to open your Project (depending on which version is on the disk and which version you last used). The formats of files used to store your Project information were changed with some updates. It is always better to be sure your installer is the last update of the TMG version you are using, which may require downloading that installer.
  6. "There were no children of...."

    Judy, As Jim says, the NarrativeChildren tag changes only the introductory sentence for the list of children. The list of children is generated normally (except you can use a code in the tag to suppress the birth places in the listing). There is no need to create the list of children with the tag as long as they are entered with these parents as primary parents. The only time you have to generate the children's names is if you are trying to add children for whom these are not primary parents. In that case you can add the children's names with the tag, but there is no code for generating the list. You have to construct it yourself in the Sentence. You do not need to create the Sentence manually for each Tag. You can modify the Sentence in the Tag Type, and if you need multiple different Sentences for different situations by using Roles, as described in my article that Michael pointed you to.
  7. Transferring v 7.04 to new computer

    I'm not sure what you mean about upgrading TMG 7 to TMG 9. There's really no such thing. Either you install TMG 7 on your new machine, using the unlock information you found, or you buy a TMG 9 serial number from Harry and install TMG 9. Moving your data is the same either way. See my article at http://tmg.reigelridge.com/new-computer-version.htm for detailed instructions. If you install TMG 9 it will convert your data to the new format when you Restore it in TMG 9. If you want to install TMG 7 you can find the installer on the Roots User Group website, at http://www.rootsusers.org/install.html Several people have had difficulty contacting Harry by email. In most cases he has responded but his replies are lost. Send me an email from my website that includes your email address and I'll make sure he gets in touch with you.
  8. Backup Exhibit Files

    Joe, I suggest you use the second option. There is little point in backing up exhibit image files, which rarely change, every time you do a backup of your TMG data. Doing so needlessly expands the size of your backup files and the time it takes to create them. You should have a backup plan for all your important data, not just your TMG data. Include the exhibit files in that plan.
  9. Citation suggestions for ftDNA matches

    Robin, The TMG list on Rootsweb is alive and well so far as I can tell. At least there were posts there as late as the middle of last week. However it looks like if you are currently not subscribed you can't become subscribed until the mailing list pages get back up on Rootsweb.
  10. Transferring v 7.04 to new computer

    The automatic update feature doesn't work since Wholly Genes stopped supporting TMG; it has nothing to do with the age of your computer. You have two choices. If you want to stay with TMG7 you will need the TMG 7 installer. It is available in several places, which we can direct you to. You will also need your TMG7 serial number to unlock it. If you want to update to TMG 9 you can do that. Links to the installers, and to Harry Goegebeur, the only dealer with TMG 9 unlock codes for sale, are on in this article on my website. Directions for moving your data are in this article.
  11. ID numbers

    Jim, You have two options under the Tools > Renumber People command: 1) you can renumber one person or 2) you can renumber all people. The first will do exactly what you want, but may be a bit of a chore depending on how many people you need to renumber. The second will also solve your problem, but if there are gaps in the numbers assigned the rest of the people in your Project those with numbers above those gaps will be renumbered to fill the gaps. This may or may not be an issue for you depending on whether you make use of the existing numbers in other contexts.
  12. Adding existing spouse

    You're welcome, Bob.
  13. Adding existing spouse

    Bob, You don't need to "Add" the husband because he is already in your Project. Instead just add a Marriage Tag to link the two people together. You can start with either one and add the other as the second Principal.
  14. TMG and Onedrive

    After you have copied the backups and installed the program as Michael says, you need to pay attention to changes in paths between the old and new computers. That's described in my article at http://tmg.reigelridge.com/new-computer-version.htm#paths
  15. Managing Flag Accents

    Are you talking about Accents that appear on the TMG screens or Accents that appear in Box Charts?
