  1. Missing tag abbreviations

    I can check your T-table but I now don't think that is the issue. However, a damaged tag type record can cause edits not sticking. However something appears to be damaging the table on the fly. You would need to send the _t.dbf and _t.fpt files. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  2. Missing tag abbreviations

    Let's see if there is an issue with the installation. Run the TMG v9.05 installer and select [Repair].
  3. Missing tag abbreviations

    You are not using any sort of cloud sync or real-time backup on your project folder, are you?
  4. Missing tag abbreviations

    I'd suggest that you need to revert to the default language files and see if that corrects the problem. The default v9.05 files are attached. Open the C:\ProgramData\The Master Genealogist v9 folder. Copy your three modified strings.* files somewhere to preserve then. Then unzip the attached .ZIP file into the C:\ProgramData\The Master Genealogist v9 folder overwriting the modified files. See if this corrects the missing abbreviations. If this doesn't work, then I would suspect some damage to the tag types data table. language_files.zip
  5. If autosomal DNA were passed by splitting in half from each ancestor, you could make such a calculation. But, because of DNA recombination, it isn't so an attempt at such calculations is meaningless. You can't say, having a 12th generation Mi'kmaq g-grandmother who is related through a single line, that you are 1/2048 Indian. Autosomal DNA isn't passed down over the generations like that. What can be determined is whether or not you have "markers" indicative of Native American ancestry and an estimate can be made for approximately how many generations back the person from whom you inherited the DNA lived (and that is assuming that there is only one such ancestor). How much DNA you have is not precisely related to the number of generations. And if there is more than one ancestor (including unknown ancestors), things get much more complicated.
  6. Missing Exhibits

    Bob, You have two options to check for missing exhibits... 1) Run Validate File Integrity using the external exhibits feature and check the Last VFI.log in the folder with the project. 2) Use TMG Utility. Exhibits / Verify Exhibit Paths http://www.johncardinal.com/tmgutil/ Jim
  7. Cannot add new tag or person

    Mike, I'm stuck on ideas about the ADD menu issue. Your installation is unlocked, right? You didn't say. I wrote Bob about the security issue regarding his server. Jim Update... I tested the TMG9 installer download and found no issues. Michael suggested that the security issue could be on your system. Have you carefully scanned your system for viruses and malware?
  8. Cannot add new tag or person

    You should uninstall and reinstall TMG. This will have no effect on your data. Trying to uninstall might fail. If that is the case, you need to delete the following two folders and then run the installer. DO NOT delete any of the TMG data folders. I'd right-click and select 'Run as administrator' when running the installer to do the installation. Delete these folders... (I'm assuming that you are running the 64-bit version of Windows.) C:\Program Files (x86)\The Master Genealogist v9 C:\ProgramData\The Master Genealogist v9 Installer
  9. Cannot add new tag or person

    Is your TMG installation locked and running in trial mode? Right-click on the TMG installer and select 'Run as administrator' then select [Repair] to refresh the installation.
  10. Windows 10 (up to date), TMG v9.05, LibreOffice 6.1 I tried FGS and Journal reports saved to RTF files with LibreOffice 6.1 and got no errors. The FGS report was the default configuration. The Journal report was default except for selecting custom format and adding spouse info and embedded exhibits. The exhibits don't initially display in either report but probably need refreshing like was once required for Word. Need to examine that. Why did you choose RTF rather than Word .DOC files? I just tried .DOC files and they opened with no errors and the exhibits displayed correctly so .DOC files appear to be a better choice.
  11. I have problems, need help

    Run Validate File Integrity, Optimize and Reindex in that order and see what results.
  12. Descendancy Narrative report problem

    You have 50 subjects? If that's the case, you should get 50 reports based on those 50 people, each report starting on a new page.
  13. Cannot add new tag or person

    I'll check your project if you send me a backup; however, I don't think that it's the project. Run the TMG installer as administrator and select [Repair]. If that has no effect, I think that some third party application is interfering with TMG.
  14. Ronald Dickinson

    It's not clear what your problem is. Have you used Windows Explorer to determine whether your project is in the TMG9 projects folder? Exactly what are you doing when you say "all my information has disappeared"?
  15. Problem during Optimize

    Run File / Maintenance / Reindex and see if that resolves the issue.
