  1. I tried to run a quick pedigree chart yesterday and discovered that the b., m., d., bur. labels were not printing. Michael Hannah correctly pointed out that this report takes those labels from the General tab on the Tag Type definition screen, and those abbreviations were missing from my English (U.S.) screen. I tried editing this, but the edit didn't "take". The abbreviation disappeared when I closed the Tag Type definition screen. I went through my backups, restoring them to a different project folder, and found one with the abbreviations intact from three days ago. I exported those b., m., d., bur. tags and then decided to experiment a little with the test database. I opened one of those tag type definitions and inspected the sentences for each language, closed the screen, and the abbreviation for English (U.S.) had disappeared! I re-imported those tag type definitions, telling the import to overwrite, and that one tag type was imported, with its abbreviation. The abbreviation again disappeared when I opened the Tag Type definition screen and closed it. Other than using my Enlish2 language for these chart reports, I have no idea how to fix this. The only thing I can think of that might have caused this is that I created an experimental custom language. The abbreviations are in the Tag Type definition in the backup before I created that language. However, the strange behavior when editing those b., m., d., bur. abbreviations happens with that backup. What should I do to fix this? (TMG 9.05, Windows 7)
