  1. Printing visual chart to pdf

    Ed, You may find Robin Lamacraft's article on my website helpful. It's at https://tmg.reigelridge.com/Robin-saving.htm As an alternative, another user told me he used the printing service of https://ancestryprinting.com/ and was happy with the results. They can print directly from the VCF file.
  2. Abbreviation

    Well, maybe I cheated. <g> I gave a presentation to the RUG last month on Journal options, so have just studied up on all of them.
  3. Abbreviation

    Lee, How do you ask the report to abbreviate a country? The only option I see is to abbreviate a state or province.
  4. Thanks, Eric. I'll post a note on my webpage mentioning them. Did you have to make any special settings to keep VCF from braking the chart into 8.5 x 11 pages?
  5. Thanks for the info, Eric. I didn't know about them. I'd love to hear how it worked for you. Also, do you have to do anything special, like install a specific printer driver on your computer, to get VCF to produce the chart in the width and length you want?
  6. There is no one so far as I know that can print VCF files directly. However, there is an article by Robin Lamacraft, an expert on VCF, on my website about how to save the data in a format that commercial printers can use. It is at https://tmg.reigelridge.com/Robin-saving.htm
  7. Tag Issues

    Mary, There are no standard tags that include census years in their labels. Any Census Tags you have like that are custom tags. Either you created them or you imported from another program than had them. When you say the information on those you find are different, which fields do you mean? I would expect the Sentences to differ somewhat because the information recorded on the various years differs. Where are you trying to edit the Witness Sentences? You should be able to do that on the Tag Type Definition screen, but not on individual Tags unless a Witness exists in that Tag.
  8. Tag Has Disappeared

    Yes, you can have two sessions of TMG open at the same time. Just open one, then open TMG again. You can open the same Project in both, but TMG will not let you edit the same record in both at the same time.
  9. Jim is not talking about an option in Sources, but rather about the Option in Reports. The report option changes the result for all Citations in that report, regardless of the option selected in the individual Sources. Thus there is no need to make the change in each Source so long as you consistently choose the "no ibid" option in each report you use.
  10. Tag Has Disappeared

    Open the Master Tag Type list. At the lower left check the box "Show deactivated tag types." If it now appears, click it then the Edit button. At the top right of the Tag Type Definition screen check the "Active" box.
  11. Link to 9.05 update

    Only part of it came up as a link. The whole link is: https://tmg.reigelridge.com/new-computer-version.htm I entered it a different way, so it should work. If not you will have to copy and paste the whole thing into your browser URL window.
  12. Link to 9.05 update

    Don't bother with the disk you have. It's of no value, you should throw it away. You don't need an "update," but rather the full TMG 9.05 installer. See the topic TMG9 - Final Installers at the top of the TMG 9 section of this forum for a link to download it. See my article at https://tmg.reigelridge.com/new-computer-version.htm for some tips on moving your data to the new computer after you install the program.
  13. Military Service tag type error

    Yes. Open the Master Event List (Tools menu). Sort by Type of Event, then type in the Tag Type name in the Search window.
  14. Odd Errors

    Trinity, I think that's a "Layout" setting, so you have to save the Layout after making that change otherwise it will be gone when you re-open.
