Opening two instances of KKPro

If I inadvertently open two instances of KKPro by injudicious clicking, I find that I can work in one window but the other seems to be stuck in a loop 'Updating tree area display'. I can't close down the unwanted window except with Windows Task Manager or shutting down the PC. Is this the expected b...

Re: Windows 10

I finally decided to bite the bullet and do the upgrade and I am pleased and relieved to report that all the features of KKPro have continued to work as they did with my Windows 7 OS. Hopefully subsequent updates will not upset matters. I'm now running Windows 10 Home 64 bit operating system.

Re: Windows 10

It would be good to get a definitive answer from Spansoft on this. I'm being bombarded by Microsoft with offers of a free upgrade to Windows 10 (from Windows 7) and it would be good to know if my favourite genealogical program would continue to work after W10 installation. Targeted release date for ...

Re: Linking to text files

Thanks for the reply. When I bring up the 'insert object' window' I can see a range of OLE objects including Adobe Acrobat Document which I suppose is what I need. But I can see only two choices, Create New or Create from File and one tick box called Display as Icon. None of these seem to be the lin...

Linking to text files

Is it possible to link to external files other than jpegs in KKProV3? I seem to remember that earlier versions of KKPro allowed you to do this. What I would like to do is to link to a text file containing a transcription of a lease or a will for example which is saved as a pdf. I tried treating such...

Citations

I notice that some websites, like FreeBMD, are now suggesting a citation in the the form of a URL with which to refer to entries. When I record such a source I usually copy the details into the source reference field. However, I was wondering if it would be possible to provide a clickable link in th...

I type 'Not married' into the field for recording the marriage place and leave the marriage date field empty which I find works well enough if this is the exception rather than the rule.

Right click sometimes doesn't work

I'm running KKPro 3.1.2 under Windows XP. I've noticed recently that sometimes when I am entering data and right-click in the Place field, to bring up a list of places recently used, the window doesn't appear. This behaviour persists until I exit and restart KKPro. I've also noticed something whichm...

Hi, To be honest, I'm not sure if I created them as links or embedded them in KKPro. Is there a way of telling from the Objects form? I'm fairly certain I would have embedded them in KKPro to make the database self-contained and independent of any reorganisation of my folder structure. The original ...

Well, I went to the Adobe website and downloaded and installed Adobe Reader X (apparently version 10, superseding 9). Now, when trying to create a PDF object, I see in the applications list Adobe Acrobat Reader. I click on that, the window goes lilac colour and everything freezes. After a while I ge...

I've now checked to see if I can create new PDF objects and I find that I get the same 'Device not ready' message. The procedure I use is to go into the Objects window, right click on the thumbnail window and get up the menu with only 'insert' highlighted. Clicking on that brings up a list of applic...

Hi Nick,
I can always open up PDF files on my hard drive by double clicking using my default PDF viewer which is Adobe Reader.

PDF Objects not accessible

I have associated PDF files as 'objects' with some person and family data forms. Recently these seem to have become inaccessible. I can see the thumbnail and the title when I open the 'Objects' window, but when I try to open the file, an error message pops up saying 'Device not ready'. Does anyone k...

Well, mainly because I've got several databases, all being worked on, and by capturing the whole folder I can backup the lot in one go, and not just the one currently loaded.
