Accents on letters?

I have just been given a new name from a cousin to insert in KKP v3.2.1 and subsequently import into TD v4.0. This surname has a French accent on an "e" and also an umlaut on another "e" in the Christian name. I have searched in help in KKP and TD and nothing came up? It is not a critical problem th...

Re: Full File Path in Title Bar

Thanks for pointing me at the pull-down list. If possible, I would still like to see the full path inserted in an update to KKP.

Full File Path in Title Bar

Would it be possible, Nick, to insert the full path of a where a database is located in the blue title bar in the KKP window? I have a number of paths where things are located and it would be a helpful reminder to just look at the title bar. You have it shown in TreeDraw. Perhaps it can be added to ...

Re: Inability to Update Text in the Tree

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried the Options\Preferences because I was aware of the File\Linked databases needing to be correctly assigned - they were, but to no avail. This was basically my problem described in my forum message of Dec 10, 2011. I have some 34 databases for family groups in vario...

Inability to Update Text in the Tree

I raised a query back on Dec 10, 2011 ...... about updating texts when more than one reference is made to the database. I didn't manage to sort this problem and put it to one side whilst I added items to my databases. Running Win XP Pro SP3 & KKP 3.2.1. Having installed the new version of TD v 4.1 I...

Thank you, Nick, for pointing out the MS KB article Q314852. I was not aware of the this utility, although it is not clear from the text whether it runs in the background when installing software or whether one must install an application via the Logging Program? Before downloading this item and try...

Deleting Databases correctly and Replacing New with Old Name

Good evening Nick, I am slightly worried about the following copied from the Help file " Select the database which you wish to delete. This will result in the entire contents of the database folder and any sub-folders being deleted - even files which are not part of the database. You cannot delete t...

Thanks for the reply Nick. I did spot the process for replacing the file pathnames, but I didn't try that as I thought I needed to delete the F: and H: drive paths which are not on the main PC. Anyhow I have done the replacement as suggested. This now leaves me with three paths showing G:\KKPro3Data...

Highlighting Searched for Family in Tree Layout Window

In using my my main FRY database with hundreds of families I have been looking for specific families on occasion. Although the "Search/Go to Family..." facility actually moves the tree layout so that the wanted family is on the centre line of the open window, it would be nice if the family rectangle...

Automatic back-up FIle

I have just realised looking at "Options/Preferences Options tab" there is a backup file located at C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\KKPro this doesn't seem to hold any of my database data? The latest file is default.rgn 08/03/2011 , but this is not a database. There is also a folder mar...

Changing the Imported Date Order of Children as displayed

When importing one family with more than two or three children into descendant trees in TreeDraw, which already has a number of families arranged to one side, I have found it would be most useful if the imported family could have the children's date order reversed. At the moment they are shown young...
