  2. Bulk Deleting of Missing Exhibits

    You can use the File / Validate File Integrity / external exhibits feature to re-link the exhibits (assuming that each external exhibit has a unique filename).

Should I just delete this folder? Sure, if it shouldn't exist. Did you fix the paths in the app.ini in the John Tippet account? Jim
  4. I have over the years put exhibits into the person view as external links... Then call me crazy I resorted my folders on the computer and now all exhibits are frowny faces... I know I can delete one at a time, but is there a faster way? Over 6000...
  5. Out to GED file

    Another option, Paul, is to create a Focus Group of the desired people, since once you select a set of people you can add ancestors or descendants as desired. If I understand what you want, I would start with a Focus Group of only the one person and select (click on) them. Now check only Ancestors and set the Generations number high (e.g. 250) and Add them. That gets all the person's ancestors. Next "Select All" the people now in this Focus Group, uncheck Ancestors, and Check Descendants BUT set the number to only ONE so you only get the children of all these ancestors (including the children of the person). After you Add those children you may wish to "Select All" the people now in this Focus Group, uncheck Descendants, and check Spouses to get all these people's spouses. You could "Save" this Focus Group to some name, or simply do the Export now and in "Step 4 Export what people" choose "People in the Focus Group" Hope this gives you ideas,
  6. Out to GED file

    Hi Paul, I do this a lot. For me, the easiest way is to create a new Project using the List of People report, then running a Gedcom from that. Doris
  7. Out to GED file

    I need to output a GED file of a family including all the children for each ancestor. But I cannot figure out how to do that easily. Is there a way to do that? In other words I want to output a piece of the database for one person's ancestry but including all his children, and all his ancestor's complete family including their children. I haven't figure out a way to do that yet. Paul
  8. Several weeks ago I had an problem where the tag for birth changed to baptism. And I changed it back to birth in the master list. However now the reports are using baptised instead of births in the reports. I have no clue why the original problem started but now I need to get this fixed as I have a huge project on the go. Is there a way to reset the master list of tags so that this stops happening? Paul
  9. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    OK. I edited the .pjc file for My Project and also the Sample Project to put in the correct paths. TMG still crashes. When I select Switch User from the Windows Start Menu, there are two options: John Tippet and John In C:\Users there are the following: John, John Tippet and johnt The John folder is empty I just noticed that there is a The Master Genealogist v9 folder at C:\Users\johnt\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9 in addition to the one in C:\Users\John Tippet\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9 Is this the source of the problem? Should I just delete this folder?
  10. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    John, Edit the .PJC file for each project using Notepad and correct the paths manually. That way, you can correct the paths without needing to run TMG. I really don't understand the entire mess. Have you checked the operating system settings to make sure that you don't have both user accounts? It's as though you did some sort of system restore on the new machine that really mucked it up. Jim
  11. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    Jim: I moved the The Master Genealogist v9 folder that contains the app.ini file (among others) to: C:\Users\John Tippet\App Data\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9 I moved the The Master Genealogist v9 folder that contains My Project and the Sample Project to C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9 I then ran TMG9 and had problems with it crashing but eventually got it to work long enough to be able to change the default file location under Preferences\General\Default Project Path to C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Projects The program is still crashing. I notice in the Preferences\Current Project Options\Advanced all of the paths there are incorrect. I assume I should correct these? This will take some time as I don't get many keystrokes in before the program crashes. What do you suggest I do next? John

    John, I'm assuming that you are logged into the John Tippet account, and that you were logged into that account when you installed TMG? Is the johnt account intentional (and the account exists)? I'm assuming that the answer to the first question is Yes and the answer to the second question is No. Move the ...\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9 folder to the John Tippit account Roaming folder. You should never store and use TMG projects in a folder that is being synced unless you want your projects destroyed. Move your projects folder to C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9 and fix the Preferences folder path to point to: C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Projects Again, the app.ini will need to be edited to make sure that all paths point to the default user folder. Waiting for your response. Jim

    Jim: Thank you very much for responding to my plea for help. I am a long-time user of TMG and the thought of not getting it to run on my new computer has been devastating. I did not copy the app.ini file between machines. All I did was to install TMG9 on the new machine when logged into the John Tippet profile. Here is my current situation: In C:\Users\John Tippet\AppData\Roaming\ there is no \The Master Genealogist v9\ sub folder. In C:\Users\johnt\AppData\Roaming\ there is a \The Master Genealogist v9\ sub folder that includes app,ini. When I open TMG9 I find that the File / Preferences / General \ Default Project Path is C:\Users\johnt\OneDrive\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Projects\ I am at a loss of what to do next. Please hand-hold me through this process. What is my next step? John

    You restored the app.ini file from the old system and it's full of incorrect paths. Edit the app.ini file on the new system and correct all of the paths. You should _never_ copy the app.ini file between machines. "C:\Users\John Tippet\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9\app.ini" > In C:\Users\John\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\ there are two subfolders: Backups and Configuration_files > In C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents there is no The Master Genealogist v9 subfolder. Doing a clean install of TMG9 should have created the 'The Master Genealogist v9' folder in Documents unless you have the Documents folder located elsewhere. This didn't happen? Don't tell me that you didn't do a clean install of TMG9 on the new machine. <g> If you run TMG and the user folder is missing, it should automatically be created. Copy the Backups and Configuration_files folders to the correct TMG folder (if they have content). You can then delete the John user account folder. The John user account shouldn't exist on the new machine but if you restore a TMG backup with incorrect paths, sometimes some of the project-specific folders might be created (backups in particular). Open TMG and open Preferences and make sure that the folders path is: C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Projects (again, unless you have located things in a non-standard location) File / Preferences / General \ Default Project Path You need to open each project on the new machine and review and correct the project-specific paths. File / Preferences / Advances / the 8 project-specific paths What am I missing?
  16. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    I recently bought a new Windows 10 computer. When logged into user profile “John Tippet” after installing TMG9 and selecting the Sample Project I get the following error message: Exhibit folder “C:\Users\John\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Exhibits was not found. Do you want to use default Exhibit folder? When I select yes, after loading and retrieving messages the program crashes. In C:\Users\John\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\ there are two subfolders: Backups and Configuration_files In C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents there is no The Master Genealogist v9 subfolder. I had previously installed TMG9 on my new computer with the same issue above except that I could navigate a few steps through the program Sample Project before it crashed, seemingly at random. I even managed to restore the TMG project file from my old computer but had the same random crashes. Any idea how I can fix this? John Tippet

    Many thanks for your help.
  19. Open 64 bit backup in 32 bit pc

    You're concerned about the differences in the Windows user account path settings. I would restrict the backup to a Project Backup (project files, exhibits, accents and filters) only. I encourage managing exhibits outside of TMG and not including them in the backups, particularly since most exhibits don't change and it makes no since to restore those every time you move the project between machines. If the TMG data paths on the two computers differ, you need to open Preferences and make any change necessary to the specific project backup path. (The other project paths should adjust automatically.)
  20. Desktop: Windows 8.1, TMG 9.5, 64 bit machine Laptop: Windows XP, TMG 9.5, 32 bit machine Can I take a backup file created on the 64 bit machine and open it in the 32 bit machine? Many thanks for your help.
  21. Obituary Tag Error Window

    I suspect that the tag type is damaged. See if you can edit the Obituary tag type definition in the Master Tag Type List. If you can't, then I'll need to repair the tag type table. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  22. Every time that I try to add an OBITUARY tag, I get the following error message: Variable “LAROLES” is not found. After I click on Abort/Retry/Ignore, the second message comes us: “OLE IDispatch exception code 0 from Panels: Maximum Panels Exceeded.” What’s going on and what can I do to fix this? Thanks!

    See the pinned topic. Things might have changed since Glenn posted this but it's a starting point.
  26. TMG9 onto Mac

    Hi, I'm trying to install TMG 9 onto Mac High Sierra using a windows 10 VM, using Parallels. I've successfully installed TMG onto the VM and tried following the instructions of adding the data_text, but it keeps saying I don't have authorisation to save files in the folder it says. Please can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong, and send me a step-by-step guide as to what to do. Roz
