  1. Relationship not connecting

    What version of TMG are you using? I'm not sure whether her father should show a relationship. Refresh the auto-relationship tag and see what happens. File / Preferences / Current Project Options / Other / click the [Refresh relationships] button. The Relation tag needs to be refreshed anytime that new people are added to the data set.
  2. John Cardinal posted about the release of T2G on TMG-L. *** TMG to GEDCOM v1.00 is now available. *** TMG to GEDCOM (T2G) is a faster, better GEDCOM export for TMG. It includes hundreds of features to customize a GEDCOM export including features custom-designed to work with popular GEDCOM readers like Ancestry.com. TMG to GEDCOM will only work with TMG databases written by TMG v9.04 or v9.05. TMG to GEDCOM allows export templates and, initially, has templates available for Ancestry.com (public and private), GENviewer, Gramps. and Legacy. You can save your own templates for custom configurations. See the following URL for more information about TMG to GEDCOM (T2G): https://tmgtogedcom.com/en/tgn001.htm
  3. Sources Slow to Load

    I tried all of the different ways that you list and it never took more than 1-2 seconds to open the source list. Your project has 1438 sources.
  4. Sources Slow to Load

    Pam, Opening the master source list in in the project we were working on took only a couple of seconds on my system. Jim
  5. Cannot Open project in TMG 9

    Hopefully, you're not using real-time sync or backup on your project (DropBox, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc.). I've never seen "[conflicted] added by TMG to a data file filename so I'm assuming that some external application is responsible for this. You need to back up your project files every work session. Rebooting your system might allow a backup to be restored. I can examine your project to see if it can be recovered. Having a data file deleted by some external application is not rare and happens. That's why frequent backups are critical. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  6. Yes. However, you want to update to v8.08, the last version of TMG8. There was a very important database design change made in TMG v8.05 and you don't want to be running an earlier version. You can find the download link for the correct TMG v8.08 version here... http://www.rootsusers.org/install.html
  7. Using the 'run as administrator' option to fix the issue suggests that this was a permissions issue. It does not occur on my system. I don't understand the last line of your accent since the accents only apply when a person is displayed. Project Explorer / Contains the Person. What's the need for this accent line? I also see that the Project Explorer is not linked to other windows and that means that you can't navigate between people using the Project Explorer. Your comments suggest that the accents are calculated when the project is opened rather than on the fly when a person is displayed. However, I see nothing related to accents in the open tables in the temp folder when your project with the accents is open and that suggests that the accents are calculated on the fly when the person is selected.
  8. I have no idea why some problem with accents would cause the open dialog problem; however, if it's fixed, it's fixed.
  9. I can check the project. I need a backup with project files, accents and filters only. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  10. Show non-primary events in Tag Box

    Right-click in the Tag Box and make sure that Filter for... / Primary events is not selected. If you are using a custom layout, when primary events are not being filtered for, save the layout.
  11. It's not clear whether you are having a program or a project issue. Try running the TMG v9.05 installer and selecting [Repair].
  12. Form-based reports output as .DOC files are incompatible with Word 2013 and later. These reports must be output as .RTF files to be used with Word.
  13. Microsoft Installation Missing File

    You'll notice that is not a TMG installer error. "Microsoft Office Single Image 2010" Try explicitly running the TMG installer as administrator. Right-click on the TMG installer file and select 'Run as administrator'.
  14. Windows 10 S, which is the lightweight version of Windows 10, will not run TMG. Windows 10 Lite is not from Microsoft and is not something you want to use for a number of reasons. It would run TMG but by design is inherently insecure.
  15. TMG v8.8 will run fine on the latest version of Windows 10. There is only one build of TMG. The UK version of TMG is exactly the same as the US version. The UK version has some UK personalization added after TMG has been installed when the installed program is run for the first time.
  16. Opened in repair mode

    Your description suggests that the .PJC file (the project file) is corrupted. What I don't understand is why this happens again when you restored a backup. I can repair (or recreate) the .PJC file if you send it to me. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  17. The answer to this has been posted many times previously. 1) Unlock TMG as a standard user. You normally run TMG as a standard user. 2) Register TMG as administrator. Right-click on the TMG shortcut and select 'Run as administrator'. Respond affirmatively to the security prompt. Unlock TMG. Exit TMG once done. Now you can run TMG as a standard user and should not get prompts that the program is locked.
  18. Create a GEDCOM from a backup file (.SQZ file)?

    Send me the .SQZ and I'll make you a GEDCOM. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  19. Printing reports to .pdf file

    Just to note... That was my advice for outputting .PDF files. Subsequently, I realized that temporarily running as administrator could be used as a workaround for the PDF issue.
  20. Printing reports to .pdf file

    When I use Microsoft Print to PDF, it gives a dialog to enter the filename and you can also navigate to the destination folder from that dialog. At the moment, I get an error trying to print to an external PDF driver. TMG uses .RTF as intermediate files in the print output process. And an .RTF file is what is used in Print Preview. Why wouldn't you want to use the TMG PDF printer driver? It works fine if used as I described.
  21. Printing reports to .pdf file

    You are choosing the output as Printer and have Microsoft Print to PDF selected as the printer? You do not select Save to: Adobe Reader (PDF) if you are printing to a PDF printer driver. You can install the TMG PDF printer driver and select Save to : Adobe Reader (PDF) if you temporarily run TMG as administrator.
  22. Death Certificate Information

    Custom what? Custom source type? That's more fields than you can add to a custom source type.
  23. Bulk Deleting of Missing Exhibits

    I can remove the exhibits from the project as I described above. I need a backup with project files, accents and filters only. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
