  1. This «navigation» issue also happens in my project from time to time. It is a a kind of unreproduceable bug. I never found out the situation that causes this unexpected jump to a different person. Luckily, the changes made to the original person are not lost after the jump. The only point I noticed is that the person appearing after the jump has the the same first as well as family name. Max
  2. TMG to the Bitter End

    Thank you Jim for your useful comments. It is good to know alternatives for the worst-case scenario of a TMG breakdown ... Max
  3. TMG to the Bitter End

    You mention an «Import from TMG » capability of RootsMagic. However, the RootsMagic Web Site does not mention the direct import of TMG data. Is there a new version available that allows direct TMG import or did you export the data e.g. as GEDCOM before the import into RootsMagic ? Max
  4. To find individuals with a memo containing a certain word or sequence of words I am using a List of Events with the following filter: Memo contains [?] AND Principal 1... Surname =Equals [?] END The filter generates a report showing all individuals of a certain surname that have have the word or sequence of words in any memo.
  5. gedcom export error

    I could solve this problem by deactivating the antivirus programs before starting the export. Max
  6. I Just wanted to confirm Jim’s comment. I have to deactivate all McAfee Life Safe modules in order to get a Gedcom output-file. Another comment: be patient! It takes several minutes to get the gedcom file, even when using a high-powered computer.
  7. I would like to report an "unreproducible" but often occuring bug in TMG 9.05. If I add children to an existing family using the sequence: "Add" -> "Copy Person(s)" with an exising child, it sometimes works straightforward. However, sometimes after adapting the first name and birthdate of the new child, an unexpected refresh of the window shows the new child with different parents. I then have to change the parents manually to fix the bug. After such an error I once optimized the data set ("File" -> "Maintenace" -> "Optimize") and ended up in a situation where TMG was unable to open the project because of a missing file. I had to restore the project but oviously lost the data entered since the last backup. For these reasons I now enter new children systematically using the "Add new Person" button. It takes mor mouseckicks but I have never had problems this way. Max
  8. What to replace TMG

    We should also consider the development of HRE (https://historyresearchenvironment.org/). There are some promising claims concerning the transfer of TMG-data.
  9. Many thanks Jim for the useful information. It seems that the migration to FH is possible but not straightforward because of the different design of the programs. I will probably stay with TMG for some more time. Max
  10. Family Historian 6 claims that it is possible to import data directly from TMG. Has anyone done it and can tell us what has been lost after the Import?
  11. Images - editing

    If you want to resize images for subsequent use in Second Site or other output you might consider to use John Cardinals TMG Utility V 7.3 (Exhibits -> Exort Images ...). This is a convenient way to resize all Images in one run.
  12. What to replace TMG

    When thinking about replacing TMG do not forget the companion programs that are extremely useful and will most probably not be updated for a differen product. My concern is that I will not be able anymore to use John Cardinals most valuable Second Site and TMG Utility with a different genealogy program. I would only be ready to use a different genealogy program if John would adapt his Second Site to that particular product. Max
  13. Thank you Helmut. I am afraid that I have to look deeper in my TMG configuration and rpt-files Beste regards, Max
  14. Thank you Helmut for your feedback. If I add the report to the custom toolbar using the "Customize.../Anpassen..." button, the report is also generated correctly. However, if I use the standard TMG-buttons at the right end side of the toolbar, they do not work as explained above. I can also generate the report directly from the dropdown report menue. The Problem concerns the preview function on the standard toolbar only.
  15. The problem of creating individual narrative reports using the buttons in the toolbar has been reported earlier for v8. If set to German, the "Individual narrative preview" does not work at all and the "Individual narrative preview with sources" just creates an empty page. Unfortunately, v9 still gives the same results. I am wondering if other users have encountered the same problem. Max
