  1. Edit menu items grayed out

    Jim, John Cardinal's TMG Utility can search most fields in the database, so should be able to do what you want. https://www.johncardinal.com/tmgutil/
  2. New Error Happening

    Trinity, your question has been answered several times on the TMG list.
  3. Changing tag type to another

    At Events > Change Event Type.
  4. Judy, As explained when you asked this question on the TMG list last week, if it's a temporary restore to test the ability to make a restore, it doesn't matter. It only matter if you are intending to use the restore to enter new data.
  5. TMG 9.0

    Ken, Is your issue how to get reports to Word from TMG 7? If so, Jim's reply tells you how to deal with that. Or is your issue how to do a direct import from TMG to Legacy?
  6. "Variable Go Term Not found" msg in windows 11

    Yes, when you move a project to a new system, all the old paths follow. Did you read the article that Michael recommended?
  7. Source Reminders

    If Center the Current Window doesn't reveal the reminder, I suggest making the main TMG window full screen, then position the Citation window way off to the side before trying to open the Reminder so it will not be covered by the Citation window. I've found hidden windows to behave normally after being found this way and clicking on them to bring them to the front.
  8. As I suggested before, the marriage does not appear in any of the family or tree views. What shows up is the fact that they are recorded as parents of a child.
  9. The Tree view doesn't actually show marriages. The Family view will show the date and place of a marriage event. Is that what you see? Otherwise, both the Family view and Tree view will show a "spouse" if they have children together.
  10. Beetle, The auto-relationship tag is not recalculated automatically, because of the time it would take to do that all the time. One way to do that is to go to Preferences>Current Project Option > Other and un-check the Automatic "Relation" Tag, click Apply, then re-check that box.
  11. Beetle, You do that by making his Mother and Father tag non-primary. To do that, make him the focus, select the Father tag at the top, and click the * button or the * keyboard key, and confirm. Repeat for the Mother tag. This will move those tags to the main Tag Box below. It will also keep him from showing in any TMG reports as their child, or them as his parents. TMG is at its heart a genealogy program, and does not provide any simple ways to deal well with adopted children.
  12. Missing DLL

    I tried the WG support address, and got a reject because the mailbox is full.
  13. I would suggest an alternate method, which to me produces much better results because all the data you add to your project is entered according to your standards. I would: 1. Open your regular Project as normal. 2. Open the new Project in a separate instance of TMG. The easy way to do that is to find that Project at the bottom of the File menu in TMG and select it. When asked whether you want to close your current Project say No. 3. You now have two instances of TMG open, one with each Project. Arrange the two main TMG windows so you can see the essential parts of both. 4. Navigate to a person whose data you want to transfer in the Project that contains the imported GEDCOM, and create the same person if not already there in your regular Project. Open each Tag that contains data you want to transfer in the imported Project, and use Windows Copy and Paste to transfer each data item to the corresponding Tag in your regular Project. 5. Continue until you have transferred all the data for that person, then move to a new Person and repeat. Continue until all the data you want to transfer is entered in your regular Project. You will probably want to create some method for tracking which people's data you have already transferred. You could create a custom Flag in the imported Project, and set an Accent color based on that. Reset it for each person as you finish with them so the Accent color changes. Alternately, you could create a list of the people involved with the List of People report, and either print it and cross off people as you finish with them, or send it to a word processor and mark them off there.
  14. You're welcome, Tom.
  15. Tom, I use a custom "Government Record - All Purpose" Source Type with the following Templates: Full Footnote: [SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]><, [FILE NUMBER]><, [FILE DATE]>, [TITLE]<, [FILM]><, [REPOSITORY]><, [REPOSITORY ADDRESS]><, [COMMENTS]><, [CD]> Short Footnote: <[SF GIVEN NAME] >[SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [TITLE]<, [CD]> Bibliography: [SUBJECT]<, [SUFFIX]>, [TITLE].< [FILM].>< [REPOSITORY].>< [REPOSITORY ADDRESS].> Note that the Source Element [SF GIVEN NAME] is a custom Source Element that repeats the given name, which is otherwise omitted in the short footnote. It's needed because I may find the same kind of record for several members of the same family with the same surname. Since this is a "splitter" type source with one Source defined for each application, no entry is required in the Citation other than any notes about how the record supports (or doesn't) the entry in the Tag.
