OK. all is well! Installed KK2, & converter works fine. Found the converter link in All Programs when click on KK3, which i hadn't actually done previously because i'd only used the desktop link. I had expected to see an arrow to the right indicating sub-items, such as happens with Word etc, where r...

Uninstall KK3 before installing KK2?

I have a new Win 7 64-bit machine & installed the current version of KK (3.1.0) which installed fine & shows the sample database fine. And i registered & checked for updates. However, i now realize that i have to have KK2 (which i've got on CD) installed in order to convert my old DBs. Bitter experi...

Profiles & Update Text - suggestions

Would be good to be able to format similar text elements in one operation, such as one can do using Styles in MS Word. eg change Person Details to Italic after import? No problem - simply get that "Style" up, change the specs and Voila - all Person Details change, right across the chart. Or change a...

Line up generations + Freehand Select

Nick, "best use of space" isn't best overall if it makes the chart unintelligable - PLEASE can we have Line Up Generations as an option?!! It'd save us an awful lot of work. Sort of on the same topic, a "Freehand Select" mode would be very useful to enable selection of elements that aren't in a perf...

I made this same error - the supposed "Choose person to Edit" box just disappeared when i pressed OK, so i just assumed it'd crashed, or didn't want to edit that person or something. When i realized what'd happened, i remembered that it'd happened before and that i now have no idea - & no way of fin...

This "Meatballs & Spaghetti" could be alleviated if we could restrict the tree area to be shown & worked on eg sketch out a freeform area with the mouse, around the section that you want to focus on, press a "Restrict" button, and everything else disappears. While in Restricted mode, all search, Edi...

Suggestions for default opening

- If KK can't find most recent DB, it ends up a debacle - how about either presenting an "Open Database" dialog box, or just open the Sample DB.

Suggestion for screen navigation

Suggestion for screen navigation - The screen control ball would be more usable if the screen movement was a lot slower & steadier, but even then you sometimes would still get lost, if you're at 100%, looking at blank space. - 1.5 zoom option (but please not as incremental as TreeDraw's too-slow-and...

Suggestions for Searching & editing

Suggestions for Searching & editing - Make Text search as sophisticated as Query Window (but easier to use!) - Edit & Search tools include option to search All (default) or only Selected families - Ability to edit or delete directly from People in Limbo results, or at least for the list to stay visi...

Suggestions re inserting & checking children & marri

Some ideas to address limitations with inserting & checking children: Sometimes the sex is unknown, but the absence of such a choice means we are forced to choose an option that may later be misleading. Also the preselected "male" default makes it too easy to just enter the other details - of a girl...

Great! Checked out the website, Open Source, looks ggod, & will download later in year after upcoming trip. Looks like TreeDraw's inbuilt function's redundant? Will try it first though...

Fills not showing in PDF

Is there any way to export patterned boxes into .pdf? Shapes with cross-hatched fill become solid-fill in the created .pdf. Am highlighting the susceptibility of individuals to a particular inherited condition by putting different backgrounds behind their names, and fully shaded fill is already in u...

Drawing Object lines & fill

Can't get any drawing objects to have any line style other than solid or dotted (the latter only when line thickness 2 or less), & can't get any fill pattern at all. Have tried both formatting after creation, as well as setting them as default, then creating say an oval. Either way no fancy outline ...

Might continue for the mo using the fonts that do work, unless this's a bad idea? eg sending TDR files to others with TDviewer OK?
Might make sense to wait for next major KK & TD - any ballpark indication of when? eg new versions for Vista32, Vista64 or Longhorn?
