  1. gedcom export error

    I could solve this problem by deactivating the antivirus programs before starting the export. Max
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Thank you Helmut. I am afraid that I have to look deeper in my TMG configuration and rpt-files Beste regards, Max
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. The same happens on my computer from time to time, not very often (Windwos 7, 64 bit). I did not yet find out the exact sequence of keystrokes of close button where it happens. As mentioned above, after a restart the reminder to backup appeared again. Max
  13. TMG 8.07 - name variants not useable

    Danke Vera. Das Hinzufügen von Namens-Varianten geht nun in v8.08 ohne Probleme. Gruss, Max
  14. TMG 8.07 - name variants not useable

    The update using the "check for updates" does not work on my computer. Where else can I download the new version? (I have to install the programme using the "install as adminsitrator") Thanks, Max
  15. TMG 8.07 - name variants not useable

    Any idea when v8.08 will be released? Max PS I have installed v8.07 an should add many new "name-var" soon.
