Feature request: Automatic back-joining of lines upon import

When importing trees with the "Join lines" option selected, one end of the shorter lines for each sibling is automatically joined to the longer line which connects those siblings. It would be helpful if the two ends of the longer line were also joined to their respective "end-point" sibling lines (i...

Well I've just tried out V4 and had to register it immediately - you've done it again! The line-joining feature is superb, both for manual joining and on imported charts. This will make it much easier to adjust charts in the future. I wonder if it's possible to manually join a line end with another ...

Sorting all people by date of death

Another option would be to go to the Search menu, select Search, then select the "SQL Query" tab; then enter the following query into the large SQL query field: select people.[Death date], people.[Description] from people order by [Death date] When you press the Search button, you should get everyon...

Working at genealogy offices

I don't know about KKPro licensing restrictions. In my own experience, I have usually found a spreadsheet program, such as Excel, to be the best for quickly recording the raw data from archive and parish registers. I can then copy and paste the information into KKPro once I return home, when I have ...

Actually there is no uniqueness contraint on a family/person association in the database - I used DDQM to insert a person as a child into multiple families (in the Links table), and the person was displayed in those families on the tree area and was listed properly when I right-clicked on the famili...

Feature request: Assign children to multiple families

Often it is not certain whether a person is a child of one family or of another. I therefore would like to be able to assign the child to multiple families (and then have K&K prompt to automatically set the "Definite" attribute to False for all families with which the child is associated). This func...

I too would like to be able to restrict dragging to the vertical or horizontal axis by pressing the Shift key. Another feature that would save a huge amount of time would be the ability to drag boxes (or groups of boxes) around and to have the length and placement of their connecting lines be automa...

Yes, the site is a bit loud and I can believe it contains links to other sites which may also provide "iffy" content. However, the DDQM software itself is legitimate and I have tried it out. I scanned both the installer and the resulting installed programs (also with McAfee) and they were clean. I e...

But note that UPDATING from KKPro2 to KKPro3 is not the same thing as IMPORTING (i.e. merging). The bug fix concerns merging records from one database to another using the "Merge" command, not updating a database. If you didn't use the "Merge" command, you shouldn't have a problem.

Well, I would recommend checking. Look at your source references in the old database and note their family and people codes (use e.g. the SQL search feature for this). Then look at the target database to see if it had different families/people with the same F/P codes as in the source database. If th...

Layers

I like to organize my ancestors into 'clans' (each one centered around one or two family names) using layers. I've also used layers to group families by geographic origin. They make it easier for me to work with groups of people who, in my mind, somehow 'belong together'.

Hello, Glad you liked the limbo query. The "date errors" problem is more complex. Theoretically it could be solved with a single SQL query, but the database engine probably can't process queries which are that complex, so the actual testing of date-error conditions is done in the program itself or u...
