Hi,

I too have had issues with the 64-bit computer. I do now have them appearing in the report writing phase as a PDF. However, when I am trying to add my sources as Endnotes, they are created but the PDF only shows the report (for example - a descendant narrative of four pages). I must confess I have not been a PDF user before always tryiong to write a report in WORDtill this 64-bit issue. But the endnotes do not appear, only the report. It does appear they are there because when I exit it says the endnotes on in a cumulative list and they will be erased. Any idea where they are hiding.

Thanks Karen

You need to follow the report with an Endnotes report. This will produce a second report with the endnotes.

With the different report engine in TMG8, the PDF report will include the endnotes.

Hi Jim, I've done all this, but in getting to the last stage I find the printer as "Wholly Genes PDF Writer v3. In right-clicking on the effigy and choosing properties I only find 2 tabs: General (my translation, German version of Win 7 says Allgemein) and Hardware. There is no third tab called Ports. I have tried the new settings without solving this last step. My attempt to send a compressed pedigree to a PDF files again ended in a paralysed pc. So here I am, almost paralysed too. How can I go on? Peter

Here I am again. I got my problem solved. I had chosen properties instead of printer properties, a tiny but decisive difference. I found the hint in another thread here, not being the only one who was mistaken in this respect. Thanks for an excellent step-by-step description how to get to a PDF-based pedigree. Peter
