  2. By default, the line spacing is one line, the minimum. Adjusting the paragraph formatting in Word is the best way to do this.
  3. Hello Jim No I am asking about descendant indented chart , not box. I can see more options when I put in indented cart but can't see anything about lines. I thought I could alter them. Perhaps it is something in Word I can do. But I am going to leave it to the typesetter. He has since told me to change margins and he will do the rest.. Yes Virginia answered about lines. But that was a long time ago. regards Kaye

  5. Variable "RULESET" is not found

    I can check the project. I need a backup with project files, accents and filters only. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  6. Variable "RULESET" is not found

    Hi Jim, Sorry for the delay in answering. Toronto was caught in a heat wave with temperatures of 35ºC (95ºF) and a humidex of 47ºC (116ºF). We fled the city to a cottage in the Muskoka's where the weather and the water were great. Real Paradise - no internet connection there. Cooler air moved in last night so we are back. I set the Source Categories to custom and reran. It stopped at the same spot (showing it was working on sources and was 92% complete) with the same Error (Variable Ruleset is not found). Now in previous tries I could not get out of this without aborting and when I tried to load the programme again it would not load (giving me a cryptic "an error occurred trying to load data"). So I would then restore the project from my backup file. This time however, in trying to get out of the run I pressed abort or ignore or retry in some unknown order when all of a sudden it took off and finished. (I have tried but have not been able to duplicate that result) The new dataset had the 2706 people I expected. But at this point, I realized that it was not Move Persons that I wanted to do but rather Copy Persons. So I restored the project and tried to use Copy Persons. I received no error code but nothing happens and the program appears to be just spinning its wheels. So it is not working in either case. Any suggestions? Ron
  7. If you're asking about the Descendant Indented Chart, the line spacing is set to one line and that's the minimum.
  8. Hello I looked through the forum and found my post on descendants chart. this is different If I take my first ancestor and do a chart for my family for example it is too wide to fit into a book. It is not really important because my typesetter will change this. I am leaving it in Word. . I want to know how to change the space between the lines. Now Virginia did an example but this chart is nothing like mine which has a line directly from each descendant. For example mine has 6 lines in the first page on and seven on page two and then it reduces. The next family member has one less. She mentioned changing the pixels but I cant see how I can do this in word. I don't want and image.I want to reduce them just a bit. .If it is too hard I will leave it to my typesetter. Many thanks. I don't want to send the charts.

    John, I've never uninstalled One Drive. I use the One Drive settings to disable any syncing and to make sure One Drive isn't run at the os startup. (all check boxes on the One Drive Settings tab cleared) Jim

    It depends upon your version of Windows. On some versions Microsoft prevents you from installing it. You could try to uninstall and if that is not allowed with your version follow the Microsoft page's instructions on hiding, which is what Jim instructed.

    I haven't removed One Drive. I just turned it off. From the Start Menu, run One Drive. Do not sign in. Close the window with the [X] button. In the task tray, click One Drive. Click More... and select Settings. On the Settings tab, clear the check boxes. Then click [OK]. In the task tray, right-click One Drive and click [Close One Drive]. Confirm this in the prompt. It should now be disabled. After some Windows Updates, the One Drive icon might reappear in the task tray. Just right-click on it and close it. %%%%%%%%%% btw... One Drive is in Programs and Features so it could be uninstalled. I would also think that it will be added back when Win10 is updated. Disabling it as I described does the job.
  13. Variable "RULESET" is not found

    You've done it by setting the source categories to Custom. Are things working correctly now?

    I don't need or want OneDrive and am open to completely removing it from my computer as you have done. The problem is I don't know how to do that.
  15. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    The link you supplied talks about Unlinking OneDrive or Hiding or Unistalling OneDrive. Which options should I select?
  16. Variable "RULESET" is not found

    Hi Jim, Thanks for the prompt reply. I went to File/Preferences/Current Project Options/Other and found Source Categories set to Lackey. I changed that setting to Custom. However I do not understand where to set SourceRule=3. I do not see any such option in the Advanced section. Can you enlighten me? Ron
  17. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    John, I completely agree with Jim. I believe random crashes have always been found to be other programs working in the background randomly accessing some of the many files used by TMG while TMG is running. As Jim noted, this is not a TMG issue, it is bad design of the program "messing" with TMG's files. There have been repeated reports of allowing OneDrive to have anything to do with TMG files causing problems. Some people like to have OneDrive back up their files onto Microsoft's cloud. In that case, first configure OneDrive to have nothing to do with all of TMG's files and folders. Then manually do a TMG backup and copy/move that TMG SQZ file to a folder monitored by OneDrive so it now will copy that file to Microsoft's cloud. Others, like myself, have completely removed OneDrive from our computers so none of our files reside on Microsoft's cloud, and do our own separate backups. For suggestions on various options to disable or remove OneDrive you might start with this Microsoft support page: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/turn-off-disable-or-uninstall-onedrive-f32a17ce-3336-40fe-9c38-6efb09f944b0 Hope this gives you ideas, Michael

    Glad you recalled my directions to: "Select All" the people now in this Focus Group, uncheck Ancestors, and Check Descendants BUT set the number to only ONE... The Focus Group actions of Add Descendants, Ancestors, and Spouses only work on the selected people in the current Focus Group. That is the key. You are most welcome, Paul, glad to hear you got what you wanted. Michael
  19. Variable "RULESET" is not found

    Check File / Preferences / Current Project Settings / Other and make sure that Source Categories is set. 'RULESET' refers to which source categories is being used by the project (Custom, Mills or Lackey). Very rarely, the setting is blank or missing (likely because the .PJC file for that project is damaged). It should almost surely be set to 'Custom'. The .PJC file should have this setting in the [Advanced] section. SourceRule=3 (3 is custom) There might be spaces around the '='. Those are of no consequence.
  20. I am attempting (for the first time) to create a dataset. I filter the Project Explorer by selecting all persons with flag OneName = Y Then I copy all Project Explorer to Focus Group. Focus Group contains the 2706 people I expected. Under data set Manager I set up a new data set called OneNameDS. I selected all the options presented. Ran the procedure and everything seemed to go right. I now have an empty data set. When I try to Move Persons from the Focus Group to the data set, it runs for a few moments but then stops with the Error Message Variable "RULESET" is not found 1248 Move Person 2. Am I doing something wrong or is something wrong with the programme? More importantly, how do I fix it? Thanks in advance for any help.

    This is some sort of system-level issue, not a TMG issue. Your system user folders have been redirected to One Drive. If you can't figure out how to undo this, my only suggestion is to disable One Drive. You still haven't responded as to whether the johnt user account is intentional or not. Win10, by default, takes your user name and reduces it to 5 characters by some sort of algorithm. The 'johnt' account would be a typical result.

    Jim: OK. I Uninstalled TMG9 and deleted all TMG9 folders on my computer. Then I reinstalled TMG9 in Administrator mode and unlocked it. The installer puts the TMG files in the One Drive folder and does not give me an option to put them somewhere else. I then moved the two folders, one in johnt\AppData\Roaming and one in johnt\One Drive\Documents to the equivalent location under user John Tippet. I then edited the File\Preferences\Program Options\General\ and File\Preferences\Current Project Options\Advanced\ settings in TMG9 to the new location under user John Tippet. When I open the Sample Project TMG9 still crashes. Plus the TMG9 folders reappear in johnt\AppData\Roaming and johnt\One Drive\Documents whenever I run TMG9, even after I have deleted them. I am desperate to fix this problem. Please help. John

    The method that worked for me was this. I added myself to the focus group. Then I added my ancestors. Then I tried to add descendants but nothing happened. Zip. Then I thought okay what if I select all of the focus group individuals first and then add 1 descendants... and that worked perfectly. So that worked. Thanks guys. I wouldn't have figured it out without you. Paul

    Your projects should never be located in the OneDrive folder or any folder (DropBox, etc.) that is being synced or backed up real-time. Syncing works fine for single files but a TMG project is a collection of files. If any single project file gets out of sync with the set, the project is effectively destroyed. This does not have to do with TMG working correctly but has to do with project integrity.

    Note: One Drive is a cloud storage service offered by MIcrosoft. Is this part of the problem?
  26. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    Jim: For comparison, on my old Windows 7 computer on which TMG9 is working, there is only one user: John The TMG9 files are in: C:\Users\John\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\ C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9\ In TMG9 under File\Preferences\Program Options\General\ and File\Preferences\Current Project Options\Advanced\ all paths are the same as above. Note that on my new Windows 10 computer, the folder C:\Users\johnt\One Drive\Documents\ is the main "Documents" folder that contains all my documents, not just the TMG9 project files, reports, etc. John
  27. TMG9 Crashes at Random

    Jim: I decided to start anew with a clean sheet of paper. I am logged into user account John Tippet I deleted The Master Genealogist v9 folders in C:\Users\John Tippet\Documents\ and in C:\Users\johnt\One Drive\Documents\ I reinstalled TMG9 as administrator and unlocked the program. After the above operation, I find The Master Genealogist v9 folder in C:\Users\johnt\One Drive\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9 (the project data files). I also find The Master Genealogist v9 folder in C:\Users\johnt\AppData\Roaming\The Master Genealogist v9 (the program files) I open TMG9 and select the Sample Project. The program crashes. I tried to open TMG9 again and this time the program didn't crash immediately. I checked the File\Preferences\Program Options\General and File\Preferences\Current Project Options\Advanced tabs and all show the file locations as C:\Users\johnt\One Drive\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\... TMG9 then crashes. I am at a loss as to what to do next. John
