Copy tag makes TMG 8.08 very slow
Legergenealogist posted a topic in The Master Genealogist v8Hi, I am running TMG 8.08 with WIndows 8 (64 bit) on an HP Envy dv7 (Intel i7-3630QM) with 12GB of RAM. I use TMG with the French Language. Today, I needed to create a tag for the 1861 Canadian census. Since it had many similarities with an existing tag, the 1871 Canadian census, I decided to copy the tag. The existing 1871 tag contains many roles that apply to the 1861 Canadian census tag that I needed. After copying the tag, renaming it and adjusting the roles, I immediately started using it, but TMG is very very slow at responding when I use this tag. The existing 1871 Canadian Census tag is named “Rc 1871”. Here are the steps that I used to create the tag: Tools > Master Tag Type List. Selected “Rc 1871”, then clicked “Copy”. Answered “Yes” to “Are you sure that you want to copy the “Rc1871” tag type?”. The newly tag was created and was named “Rc 18711”. Double-clicked on “Rc 18711” tag. Modified the Label field to “Rc 1861”. Modified the Past tense field to “Rc 1861”. Modified the 20 roles to reflect the 1861 census. Clicked on “OK”. Issue with using the new tag: Press <F4>. Double-clicked “Rc 1861”, then the waiting begins (at least 30 seconds) Add the ID # for the principal. No issue. Click “ajouter un témoin” (yellow plus to add a witness). Waiting again (over 10 minutes). Add the ID # for the witness. Waiting again. Select a role. Click OK. With several witness to add, this process takes almost an hour for 1 family. Not very productive. With a large amount of data to analyze, this is very frustrating. This is the second tag that I have that is now producing the same kind of result. I reported a very similar issue previously: http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index.php?showtopic=15056 http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index.php?showtopic=15065 Gilles
