  1. Customize Other Info

    Virginia That did the trick Thanks,
  2. What happened to the Age tag in the Customize Other Info window? It seems to have been replaced by something called "Selecte". Enabling Selecte doesn't provide any values. I have English (U.S.) selected as my language. I looked up Age in English (U.S.), English (U.K.), and English2 -- there was no substitute entered for any of these. I uninstalled and reinstalled TMG and the problem persists. The Age tag works correctly in the Sample Project. Therefore the problem must be in my working project. I've Optimized, Validated File Integrity, and Optimized several times.
  3. I came across an interesting test while testing free programs. Could a test be added to the Audit report for people born less than nine months after the previous sibling and the multiple birth flag = 1 or ?. Rick
  4. Non Primary Marriage Tags

    Michael, I ran a List of Events report with the following filter to find all 250 or so of my errors: CODE Tag Type... | Label | = Equals | MARRIAGE | AND ( Principal1.. | Primary marker | On | | AND Principal2.. | Primary marker | Off | | ) OR ( Principal1.. | Primary marker | Off | | AND Principal2.. | Primary marker | On | | ) END I have no idea how these crept into my file but I'll try to watch for it when adding folks from now on. Most but not all of the non-primary marriage tags were on Principle 2. I usually add marriages by alt-a then o (Add Spouse menu item) but maybe a third result from the prompt after adding both parents to a child. Good point about VFI. I can't imagine why someone might want a marriage tag primary for one partner but not the other but perhaps someone could enlighten me. Perhaps John Cardinal will pick it up in the utility. Thanks, Rick
  5. Please add a check to Validate File Integrity to make a marriage tag primary. I noticed some wierd results when testing some genealogy software for techsupport alerts. One of the spouses would not have a marriage link to the other, e.g. the wife would have a marriage to the husband but the husband did not have a marriage link to the wife. This was due to a couple of hundred instances in my database where one spouse had the marriage tag as primary but not the other. There was about a dozen where neither spouse had the marriage as primary. I'm positive I didn't add them that way. In fact the only reason I ever switched one marriage tag as primary for another was for engagements or the like, I'd make the marriage primary if it wasn't already. Thanks, Rick
  6. FYI, Web > Search the Web > Rootsweb.com no longer works. Ancestry must have tweaked something on their site again. Regards, Rick Tonsing
  7. Virginia, Thanks, the work around works for Vista 64 also.
  8. Version 8?

    Personally I'd like to see the tab key function finally fixed properly on all screens. I know it's a small thing but the lack of attention to detail feels unprofessional. For example the Tag Entry screen opens with date highlighted. Pressing the tab key proceeds through the fields nearly as one might expect until the "Cancel" button is highlighted. The next tab key press does not go to the Help button. Instead it goes to the "Search for Digital Books" button. The next tab key press goes from the "Search Digital Books" to the Help button instead of "Look up this place on the web" The Master Source List goes Add, Edit, Delete, then jumps to Close, Help then jumps back to Search, Search Again, Copy, Renumber, then skips Merge to land on Cite Globally, Import, Export, then backtracks to Merge, then skips ahead to Less.
  9. When TMG 7.04 checks for updates on my Vista Home Professional 64 bit I get an "Associated Application Not Found" error message. Keystrokes: Alt-h = Help menu Up 3 times = Check for an Update Enter Associated Application Not Found No application in c:\program files (x86)\the master genealogist v7 is associated with the update engine so it cannot check for updates. Please make sure [sic] that this software is installed properly.
  10. Exhibit Log Filter

    Jim, Yes pressing the tab key works. I've also found that pressing the Next arrow works as well. I still feel that the way the filter works is obtuse--not intuitive at all. Nor does it work the way other filters in TMG work. For example, the [F2] people and place search works as you type. Thanks for your prompt response, Rick
  11. How is the Exhibit Log Filter supposed to work? I want to locate where a specific exhibit file is attached. I'm taking the following steps: 1. Menu-->Tools-->Exhibit Log 2. Sort--None 3. Focus--All Exhibits 4. Type--All Types 5. Filter--1865 [the value I want to find] 6. Nothing Happens 7. I press Enter 8. The filter works but I also get the Select files for new exhibit, e.g. same as if I had clicked on the Add button. The Add button is the highlighted button when the window is opened. I suppose that if Delete had been highlighted then the filtered file would have been deleted. What I expected was that either the filter worked as I typed in the filter value or that the filter only would apply when I pressed Enter after typing. Or a search/filter button to initiate the filter might help.
  12. This is almost trivial but it annoys me. When I click on one of the source previews and click Ctrl-A to select all of the footnote (or whatever) then Ctrl-C to copy, nothing is copied to the windows clipboard. In other words, if I then go to Notepad and Ctrl-V to paste nothing happens. However if I manually shade the entire preview without using Ctrl-A , then ctrl-C will copy the text and Ctrl-V will paste it in Notepad. I can duplicate this behavior every time in all of the source preview screens and with the sample database. Thanks, Rick
  13. GEDCOM Export Error

    Virginia, I don't have a source 0 in the Master Source List. Thanks,
  14. GEDCOM Export Error

    Roy, The 3258 was from the error message in the original post and probably has nothing to do with the number of sources. I have less than half that many sources. Rick
  15. Picklist

    Um, I'm hunting and pecking but you appear to be right. In the couple of seconds that it takes the picklist to open I can type enough to cause this behavior. Thanks for the tip.
