  1. Jim Byram, will TMG 8.04 run on WIN10? I too am finally being forced off of WIN7 and am moving over to WIN10. Hey, at least I'm getting a new PC out of it. (I guess that's good.) If TMG8.04 won't run on WIN10 do I have any recourse, or will I lose all of my data? SCARY THOUGHT!!!!!
  2. Can I save vcf reports as ".jpg" file types? It isn't an obvious choice upon saving, even as a "save as." I am making a family tree photo book via a photo website. In the past I have printed the vcf reports, scanned them and saved them as ".jpg" file types so I can include them in the photo book. The image is fuzzy and the quality is not very good. If I could save the reports as ".jpg" file types it would be GREAT.
  3. OH THANK YOU!!! Virginia! You've made my day!
  4. I need help printing Descendant Indent Report. I am running TMG v8.04 yet I get the following error which refers to v7: "Error exporting to C:\Documents and Settings\Barbara J Heard\MyDocuments\The Master Genealogist v7\Report_output\CookStJohn ID 113 IndDesc.PDF" I've tried changing the output to WORD and I get a similar error message that ends in the following: "...\CookStJohn ID 113 Ind Desc.DOC is in use by another application or cannot be deleted. Retry?" When I click on "retry" I keep getting the same error message. My hunch is I'm doing something wrong obvious to everyone but me. Thanks for your help. Barbara Heard
  5. Is there a companion product that will facilitate me loading my TMGv8 data onto my Ipod? I searched "ipod" in this forum but didn't get any results. I looked from the main page of this WG site under 'companion products' and didn't see anything. There are so many Apple "I..." users out there I can't believe that no one has created the program I'm looking for. TIA. BJH
  6. I just bought GedView and now I have both of my TMGv8 projects on my Ipod Touch! YIPPEE!! I've been without my data going with me everywhere for almost two years. It's been terrible. Now I have it back. HOORAY! Thanks for the suggestion Jim.
  7. OK, thanks Jim. I'll go look around.
  8. I'd rather not use SS for the reasons mentioned above. I am hoping there is something for the Ipod like the program that is/was available for Palm products. I can't remember the name of the software since I haven't used it in a LONG time. Should I contact WG on Monday and see if they know of a product like I'm looking for?
  9. F3 Repeat Key

    Here it is 3-1/2 months after this original thread started, but I'm having the same problem. The "F3 - repeat function key" does not work for me. When I'm in TMGv8 and touch the "F3" key it opens Excel. Yes, I have typed data into the field that I am trying to repeat information in to. I did all the tips and suggestions from this March '12 thread and none of them fixed the problem. My PC is Dell Windows7, 64 bit. The F3 repeat worked just fine in TMGv7 on the same machine. Any new ideas to solve this issue? Thanks for your help. Barbara
  10. can't upload my pic to profile

    I've decided to post a picture of me into my profile but it keeps failing. Any tricks I need to know about?
  11. I just upgraded from v7.04 to v8.04. All of the links for my external exhibits seem to be missing. The images are in a folder in "my pictures". I looked at Terry's TMG tips and followed his recommendation to uncheck the "external exhibits" button in 'project items' but the link to the external exhibits still didn't show up. I know I can manually recreate the link to the exhibits but I'd sure rather let the programs get the info for me. I'm running a PC Windows7 64bit. Thanks for your advise and help.

  12. I'm really sorry to be so DENSE but..... what 'VFI.log file in the project folder?' What project folder? I know I can look at the exhibits showing frowny faces in the exhibit log one-by-one, but is there an easy way to see those 30 exhibit logs in one list? Like I said, I'm really being dense today. It has been a long time since I did anything in TMG so I'm really rusty. Thanks for the help. BJH
  13. It appears some of my external exhibits are OK but others are not. In this one project 69 external exhibits were checked for and 30 were NOT found. Can I get a list of who those 30 NOT found were associated with?
  14. I have an Apple ipod Touch that I want to load my genealogy data onto. I read two topics in this forum about software to accomplish this. It looks like GedView or Second Site (SS) work well on the iPad. The iPad has a large screen and the iPod touch has a very small screen. My question is, is the iPod touch screen too small to easily read SS documents? Are there any other "issues" I should be aware of with regards to either GenView or SS on an iPod Touch? Thanks for your help.
  15. While downloading TMGv7 to a new laptop PC it crashed and we got the 'blue screen of death'. It crashed due to another program's conflict, not TMG. We can see a number of TMGv7 files in Program Files but it won't open. We're thinking the download was only partial so we went to the windows 'remove programs' function but TMGv7 is not there. Can I resume the download and will it overlay what's already there? If not, how can I remove the partially installed pieces of the program? Thanks. Barbara Heard
  16. Hi Michael, I contacted Dorothy Turner at WG and she had me delete the TMGv7 folders that had been created, then try again. I did both and it worked! :-) Thanks for your time answering my plea for help. I appreciate it. Barbara Heard
  17. My computer expert (aka Husband) says I misspoke earlier. The process was in the middle of installing when it crashed.
  18. I have a new PC. How do I re-download Second Site (SS) to the new PC? Yes, I do still have my serial number. :-)
  19. new PC - re-download SSv2

    I LOVE the emoticons! Yes, I do need to be hit over the head once in a while. :-) I found out exactly what you said when I got the confirmation email from John after I bought the upgrade. SSv3 is now installed on my new PC. Hey, do you also know a lot about Applie iPod Touchs? :-) Thanks for the help.
  20. new PC - re-download SSv2

    Hi again Jim, I just got a confirmation email from John Cardinal with the same link you gave me. I was able to download SSv3. I thought I had to have SSv2 on my PC first, but obviously I don't because SSv3 downloaded just fine. :-) Thanks again for your quick response and help. BJH
  21. new PC - re-download SSv2

    Hi Jim, Thanks for the info. As I re-read my post I realize I should have said a bit more. :-) I have SSv2 on my OLD computer. Today I bought the upgrade to SSv3 from my NEW computer. I think my question should have been more like, how do I install SSv2 on my new copmuter so I can then upgrade it to SSv3. I don't want to pay full price for SSv3 since I already have SSv2 and qualify for the less expensive upgrade. Thanks for your help.
  22. I wonder if everyone is on the cruise, or if there is still anyone available to answer questions. Let's find out. I am creating a TAG for US Citizenship Naturalization. Do any of you have a sentence structure you'd care to share with me? I looked at Teresa Ghee Elliott's website, and my grandfather was Naturalized in 1937, so I'd like to see what others are using. Thanks for your time. Barbara
  23. My topic title pretty much asks my question.
  24. My new favorite layout

    Teresa, Thanks so much for starting this thread. I'm blown away by what people are doing with their screen layouts! What is that large lime green box that takes up the lower right quarter of your layout? It says "custom", but custom what? I can't see the picture clearly that you have posted with your name. Is that a cat curled up around something? If it is, undoubtedly he/she is "helping", right? Barbara Heard
  25. Trip to Salt Lake City

    So, how was the trip? I wish I had seen your posting before you left. I would have written a book of tips for you. Are you ready to go back again: as soon as possible? I'll be going again in just over two months. HOORAY! BJH
