  1. I used the Flag Manager to put the Ancestor Interest back in my Flag Window - now no values shoe\w in the Flag Window. I cannot figure out how to get them back.
  2. flag values not visible

    This one is the winner - worked as advertised!! John
  3. flag values not visible

    Jim, I have tried to solve this problem, but cannot. I uninstalled TMG and after copying my Exhibits and Backups to another location, deleted the folders \Documents\The Master Genealogist, and \Program Files (x86\The Master Genealogist v9. Then I deleted all the files in the recycle bin, and shut down and restarted my MS Windows 10 computer. Then I reinstalled TMG v9. When I opened the program it came up in my previous layout, with my previous toolbar, and the Flags box error! Have you any idea where the layout, etc is saved, so I can delete it? John MayBee
  4. I did something, and now for a family on the Census tag, now no witnesses appear on their Person screen, even thought they are entered in the witness block on the Tag Entry. It appears that no witnesses to any event is appearing. What did I do wrong, and how can I fix it? John MayBee, Scotts Valley, Ca maysoc@comcast.net
  5. As easy as that! After 27 years, I learn something new. Thanks Jim
  6. Backup fails

    When I try to backup my project, I get the message: “Input file read failure - this error occurs when a read operation is performed on a ZIP file that is locked or restricted by another process” I ran validate file integrity - no problem found I’ve rebooted the computer - no help I moved all backups to another drive - no help I copied project to a new name - no help, still wouldn’t backup I opened a different project, it backed up properly. So my problem seems to be only with this one project Anybody have any ideas?
  7. Backup fails

    Since I back up every night, this would take more space and time that the work I did do. I extracted records last edited since 6 May to a new project; deleted the project; restored the project from my laptop to a new folder (thanks to your advice); and merged the projects, merged the 28 people, merged sources, and now have a project that backs up. It only took about 90 minutes.
  8. Backup fails

    Jim, I do usually use the backup folder. This project will not backup, regardless of the destination It originated from a .sqz on my laptop, and that was backed up directly to a thumb drive. I entered data for about four hours taday, before discovering the problem. If you cannot think of anything else, I will do a standard backup on the laptop, copy it to this computer via a thumbdrive, and reenter. So if you have any ideas, I'll try them first. John MayBee
  9. Other Info Box missing Reference

    Noted. Thank you!
  10. In my main database the Reference Field does not appear in Other Info Box. The only fields that show to be enabled are Children, Tag Count, Age, Last edited, Selecte, and Soundex (All my other databases have: Children, Tag Count, Age, Last edited, Reference, and Soundex). Selecte when enabled shows no data. The picklist does show the reference field, but it is not available to edit

  12. Other Info Box missing Reference

    Jim, When I dragged it to my desktop I did get a shortcut to http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=3504 When it click ot it, it goes to that address which gives me the message: "Sorry, there is a problem The page you are trying to access is not available for your account. Error code: 2C171/1" even though I am signed in as John MayBee I will try editing my .plc file and see if I can just edit it mas you suggest. Thanks for your help John MayBee using TMG since Feb, 1993 ( v.99 pre-release)
  13. Other Info Box missing Reference

    Jim, When I tried copying it I got "attachment.php" which is attached - not usable When I dragged it to my directory I got this "Maybee Society__.PJC" also not usable, but it did overwrite my old one so TMG won't open. John attachment.php Maybee Society__.PJC.URL

  18. Exporting Exhibits

    I have just revived a project that I made before a computer meltdown. The exhibits are all internal, but I no longer have the original pictures (mostly .jpg). Is there a way to save this pictures (exhibits) to file, so I can have access to the them? John MayBee

    Jim, Thank you, I didn't even think of TMG Utilities. John MayBee
  20. Exporting Exhibits

    TMG Utility does it again. Thanks John for this and for all the other uses of your wonderful utility. John MayBee
  21. When I copy data from WPerfect files to TMG 8.08 using Ctrl-C then Ctrl-V, (in at lease Memo and CD fields) the entry looks normal, but when I bring it up later I find an entry like { SEQ CHAPTER h r 1} preceding the entry. I recently upgraded to TMG 8 from TMG 4 because Windows 7, won’t let me load version 4.
  22. Journal Report Output.

    I recently upgraded to TMG 8 from TMG 4 because Windows 7, won’t let me load version 4. I wanted to do an Ancestor Narrative, but couldn't find how to start one from scratch, so I modified a Journal Report to do so. However, after the primary entry, I get sentences like: Maxine Maybee (30756) (Harvey, #10) witnessed the birth of Maxine Maybee (30756) on 28 Jun 1919 at Cattaraugus Indian Reservation, New York. She witnessed the marriage of Maxine Maybee (30756) and Seymour Ely Johnson Jr. (32677) (see #4) on 2 Aug 1940 at Tuscarora Baptist Church" They are the primaries, why do I get the witnessed the entries?
