  1. Backup problem

    OneDrive, or any automatic backup, seems to be a major problem for many of us. If it runs while our files are open, they can be corrupted. Doris
  2. Dave, a Descendant Report will show all the descendants of a particular ancestor. If you're looking to find all DNA matches to one or more relatives you have identified as DNA relatives to this Native ancestor, you might try RootsFinder, a remarkable genealogy program with amazing DNA features. Check it out.
  3. Unlock product key

    Thank you, Michael!
  4. This cursed message is rearing its ugly head again every time I open TMG. Argh. I know there's a trick involving log in as administrator. I forgot how.
  5. List of People Query

    Oh my gosh. That's perfect, John. Thank you again!
  6. List of People Query

    I want to flag the Y-DNA tested males in my database and their direct paternal line ancestors where the Y line has been proven, then display an icon in SS to indicate this. I can easily attach a flag to each tested person that qualifies, but how can I select their direct paternal line in a Report\List of People query? Thank you! Doris
  7. Off-Topic - MyHeritage

    I've been a member for many years and have had no problems with MyHeritage. I find their DNA offering far superior to Ancestry and 23andMe. Their research is also excellent, a great supplement to Ancestry. One important factor is that they have a huge European membership and European sources that often are not available elsewhere. They have a pro bono program that recently offered free kits to more than a thousand adoptees and have just announced free kits to help reunite parents and kids in the border fiasco. They use FTDNA's lab. Doris
  8. Edit function

    Dear Jim, Thank you so much for your instructions. I apologize for my delayed reply. Something came up and kept me from my computer, but I'm always grateful for your help. Best, Doris
  9. Edit function

    For as long as I can remember, the Edit function page has most items grayed out, including Insert Object. I was always able to ignore it as just an annoyance and could find a workaround. However, I'm now trying to insert a PDF as an exhibit and can't figure out how to do it. Can someone please help? Thank you. Doris UPDATE: I figured out how to right click and get an OLE box, but what do I put into it. It won't accept a paste or a path to the file. Help???
  10. Strangely, when I select a tag from the list, the default is to Close rather than Select. It's more of an annoyance than a complaint. However, when I add a new custom tag, or try to change the name of a tag, TMG accepts the tag, adds it to the list (in Tools\Master Source List), but won't bring it up when I try to Select it from Add. I've tried Optimize, close project and reopen. Any suggestions? Thank you, Doris
  11. Oh my gosh, as easy as that. I'm embarrassed. Guess it was a senior moment. Thank you, Terry.
  12. Flags topic, new question Jim and Terry refer to using flags to define reports. Can someone please tell me how to do this? I have assigned a flag to mark my DNA Matches. How can I now find everyone with DMA Match flag set to Y? Thank you! Doris
  13. Error in Scan

    OK, Terry. Thank you. That's what I've been doing, but it certainly is time-consuming.:-( I know I used TMG's scan feature years ago. I liked being able to get an image into TMG then fix it later. Of cvourse, some of them never got fixed so your approach is better. I'll do that.
  14. Error in Scan

    I have not been able to Scan directly from TMG for a long time. When I attempt it, I get this popup from TMG: VFPCOM.DLL is not registered. I've used alternate methods to the occasional image but now I'd like to add a bunch. It would be so much easier if the Scan feature would work. Thank you for any suggestions. Doris
  15. Add universal sentence

    Thank you, Terry! Great solution. Doris
