  1. backup error message

    Great. That suggests that some component was missing or not working correctly and the clean install fixed it.
  2. Children in Tag Box

    'Show children' is a display option for the Tag Box as opposed to being a filter selection. That's why the 'filtered' indicator didn't show.
  3. backup error message

    Try backing up to the default TMG backup folder and do not include anything in the backup except the project files, accents and filters.
  4. backup error message

    Those are all permissions issues. You don't have permission to access your own Documents folder. <g> From File Explorer, right-click on the 'The Master Genealogist v9' folder in the Documents folder. Unselect the Read-only attribute. That alone might work. Also try this... Run TMG as administrator and try a backup. Right-click on the TMG shortcut and select 'Run as administrator.' Respond to the UAC prompt affirmatively. Open your project and try a backup.
  5. backup error message

    The usual solution is to backup to your main disk drive and to the default backup folder. The ancient .ZIP library is very fussy about where it will write the backup. You can always copy the backup, after making it, to another folder or drive if necessary. You should never back up directly to any folder used by a syncing utility such as One Drive or Dropbox or to a network location. It's also possible that some external application (anti-virus, anti-malware, syncing, backup) is interfering with the backup process. It is possible that this issue can't be resolved. That's very rare but has happened for a user or two. You can always make a manual backup by making a ZIP archive of the 48 project files (29 .DBF files, 1 .PJC file and 18 .FPT files) and naming it appropriately. That archive would also need to be restored manually by unzipping it into the folder where that project is stored.
  6. Paula, The person and name tables had damaged headers. I fixed those and ran the maintenance routines to clean up the project. Jim
  7. If the backup is too large to email, you'll need to upload the project so that I can download it. A 5Mb .ZIP file shouldn't be an issue. You can contact me by email by clicking on the link below... Jim Byram
  8. You normally exit repair mode by exiting TMG and restarting. If you start TMG showing the Welcome screen (as you should be doing), you can exit without opening any project. You understand that your project actually might be damaged? I can examine your project if you wish.
  9. Source Listing Printed

    Use the List of Sources. General tab / List Type / select Columnar Sort By tab / select Source ID# Output Columns / select the columns and sort in your preferred orders It could be that the Sort By tab choice has no effect when columnar output is selected. You'll need to experiment.
  10. Date format problem

    You can filter the Project Explorer for the 'Last Edited Date' to get a list of people's names who have been edited since a specified date. How a date displays has nothing to do with how it's stored in the database. Dates are stored in a standard format and can be displayed in many formats. Check Michael's bug list under 'Data Entry' to see if any of the date issues might apply to your problem. https://www.mjh-nm.net/BUGS.HTML#TOCDataEntry
  11. Relation remark

    Sorry. I misunderstood that you wanted person #1 as the focus person. Do as Michael says.
  12. Relation remark

    With the new project open... File / Preferences / Current Project Options / Other Select Automatic "Relation" tag Enter "1" in the Focus person field Make sure the 'or the spouse' option is not selected if you don't want this Click [Refresh relationships] That's it. (edited to make the focus person #1)
  13. TMG v9 problems

    No. You have three tools to build a group of people. 1) the Focus Group You can add a person or people to a focus group individually and then use the Focus Group to add ancestors, descendants, and spouses. This is the easiest way. Just keep in mind that the additions occur for the selected person/people. Be sure to make the selection correctly before making additions. 2) the Project Explorer You use the Project Explorer and its filters and add the selections to a focus group. This can be done in multiple steps to add people. 3) the List of People report and its filters to set a flag. Again, this can be done in steps. The end results of all of the above is a group of people in the Focus Group or with a given flag and you can export the group based on either. The best way to proceed depends on exactly how you want to group to be specified.
  14. Most reports are grayed out

    The best charting software available probably would be Charting Companion. https://progenygenealogy.com/products/family-tree-charts/
  15. Finding sources in records

    You essentially answered your own question. List of Citations Filter - Source Number = (some source number) END
