  1. Paula, The person and name tables had damaged headers. I fixed those and ran the maintenance routines to clean up the project. Jim
  2. If the backup is too large to email, you'll need to upload the project so that I can download it. A 5Mb .ZIP file shouldn't be an issue. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  3. You normally exit repair mode by exiting TMG and restarting. If you start TMG showing the Welcome screen (as you should be doing), you can exit without opening any project. You understand that your project actually might be damaged? I can examine your project if you wish.
  4. Source Listing Printed

    Use the List of Sources. General tab / List Type / select Columnar Sort By tab / select Source ID# Output Columns / select the columns and sort in your preferred orders It could be that the Sort By tab choice has no effect when columnar output is selected. You'll need to experiment.
  5. Date format problem

    You can filter the Project Explorer for the 'Last Edited Date' to get a list of people's names who have been edited since a specified date. How a date displays has nothing to do with how it's stored in the database. Dates are stored in a standard format and can be displayed in many formats. Check Michael's bug list under 'Data Entry' to see if any of the date issues might apply to your problem. https://www.mjh-nm.net/BUGS.HTML#TOCDataEntry
  6. Relation remark

    Sorry. I misunderstood that you wanted person #1 as the focus person. Do as Michael says.
  7. Relation remark

    With the new project open... File / Preferences / Current Project Options / Other Select Automatic "Relation" tag Enter "1" in the Focus person field Make sure the 'or the spouse' option is not selected if you don't want this Click [Refresh relationships] That's it. (edited to make the focus person #1)
  8. TMG v9 problems

    No. You have three tools to build a group of people. 1) the Focus Group You can add a person or people to a focus group individually and then use the Focus Group to add ancestors, descendants, and spouses. This is the easiest way. Just keep in mind that the additions occur for the selected person/people. Be sure to make the selection correctly before making additions. 2) the Project Explorer You use the Project Explorer and its filters and add the selections to a focus group. This can be done in multiple steps to add people. 3) the List of People report and its filters to set a flag. Again, this can be done in steps. The end results of all of the above is a group of people in the Focus Group or with a given flag and you can export the group based on either. The best way to proceed depends on exactly how you want to group to be specified.
  9. Most reports are grayed out

    The best charting software available probably would be Charting Companion. https://progenygenealogy.com/products/family-tree-charts/
  10. Finding sources in records

    You essentially answered your own question. List of Citations Filter - Source Number = (some source number) END
  11. I do an image backup of all drives on the computer to an external hard drive once a week. All is done as specified in one Backup Definition File and one backup file of everything is created. It is simple to mount a drive from a backup file to recover any folder or file that is in the backup image. The Macrium Reflect UI Watcher runs in the background all of the time. That is used to prevent deleting backups except from within Macrium Reflect. There is no real time backup process going on so the program has no effect on running TMG or on TMG data (other than backing up). I used Acronis but got irritated at how it backed up the Windows partition on my iMac. Acronis took about 3.5 hours. Reflect took about 30 minutes. The backup was the same data in both cases. I still use Acronis on my wife's two computers. btw... I never had any issue with TMG using Acronis.
  12. Karen, I'd suggest using the free version of Macrium Reflect to backup. https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree Download with the blue [Home Use] button down the page on the left. Jim
  13. Audit results

    Ghost person. This still happens after optimize and VFI... and reindex? No REF_ID after the name? I'm guessing there is a link to a person that doesn't exist.
  14. Karen, I have no idea whether this is the installation or the project or some external application causing a problem. Run the TMG installer and select [Repair] and see if that makes a difference. I can do an in-depth check of your project if you wish. Jim
  15. Have no idea. Have you run optimize, validate file integrity, optimize in that order?
