  1. Cannot open TMG 9.05

  2. Cannot open TMG 9.05

    Thanks. Worked like a charm.
  3. Cannot open TMG 9.05

    I was copying my project via backup and restore from my mac computer to my laptop. while restoring, I got an error message saying the layout was no longer valid and the system locked up to where I had to force quit the app. When I tried reopening it, the screen would flash gray then nothing. I did a repair, and nothing. I deleted my old project files thinking that it would go right into restore and the same thing happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing happens. I do this quite regularly and never had an issue before. What happened and What else can I do? Thanks.
  4. Ancestry and j2k format

  5. Just noticed that some of the documents I downloaded from Ancestry to use as exhibits In my TMG9.05 have changed from JPG to J2K, which TMG does not seem to handle well. I tried loading the image into my photo editing software (Adobe Photo Elements 12) to change image to JOPg but the software does not recognize that format. What exactly is the J2K format and is there a work around to get the image to display in TMG. Thanks
  6. Adding existing spouse

    Ahhh, so simple. Thanks.
  7. Adding existing spouse

    Merry Christmas. I entered a new female ancestor who was married to an existing male record. When I enter the spouses name in the 'add Husband' screen, I get the prompt of a matching record and end up pulling the pick list with the husband's name. However, I cannot select that record to add as her spouse and I cannot figure out another method to add him. How can I add and existing record to a new person as a spouse? Thanks. (Yes, I am actually doing genealogy on Christmas Day.)
  8. Weird database happenings

    Well, I don't sync to a cloud and I've not had a power outage or spike. My TMG had been closed for several hours so and task manager did not show TMG running, so I don't know. Weird things had been happening to me lately so I'll just write this off as one of them. Maybe the eclipse?
  9. Weird database happenings

    Thanks Michael. Don't know how that happened, but it's Been one of those days.
  10. Last couple of days, strange things have been happening with my project database. I back up during and after all of my sessions. Yesterday morning, I opened it and found that a lot of my records, exhibits and sources had been lost. Weird part is that it was not the last records I had entered, but 20 or so records prior. There records were even missing from my recent backups. I started re-entering the records and stopped to take a break. When I returned, I couldn't open my database because it was already in use, even though windows said (after I closed TMG, no programs were running. Then TMG opened in repair mode. I had to restore from a backup to get operating again. Anyone have any ideas what is happening?
  11. Configuring a backup

    Terry, Thanks, exactly what I wanted.
  12. Configuring a backup

    Is there a way to configure the backup to EXCLUDE external exhibits? I sometimes forget to uncheck the box on the second backup screen. I've looked at all the preferences but could find the answer.
  13. Thanks Terry. I already have the backup process in place. My question related to whether or not I needed to include them with my TMG backup. And I don't.
  14. Note: ALL exhibits are external. I recently saw a thread on the rootsweb news list (which I cannot send queries to for some reason, but that is another topic) dealing with exhibits as part of the backup. The end result seemed to indicate that it was better not to include exhibits as part of the back up. Up til now, I have been including my exhibits (a little over 1200) as part of my regular backup. Is this necessary? My backups go a lot faster without inclusion. What do I gain by including my external exhibits in my backup? Or, what do I lose by not including them? My process is that after each session, I copy my exhibits from my desktop to my laptop. I then copy my backup to and restore on my laptop, Since I run TMG on parallels on my Macs, I use iCloud drive for the transfers. This way, when I travel, everything is up to date. Thanks.
