I am intrigued that you can import 2638 people and their families and the families do no appear in the tree layout. People in limbo do not appear on the tree layout but any person linked to a family should be on the tree layout somewhere, or are all these people in limbo?

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the info. I don't have any extra language keyboards installed but I notice that I can get the same options under "encoding" when I right-click in Windows Explorer. I have not yet discovered how to uninstall IME.

I agree...
