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 various counties. Most are associated with their own Tree. The linked databases vary between 1 and 4 (I think because I have imported new groups of families). I have checked half a dozen or so of the TD files and none will update the text, even with the correct linked database. The blue progress bar appears at the bottom of the TD window showing it apparently checking the database for changes, but nothing happens?
I have tried the TD v3.2.5, which is still installed in a different folder and this gives the same problem of inability to update text.
If I draw a new tree with using one of the KKP databases that apparently doesn't update text, then now the tree text will update. I can open this v3.2.1 file with TD v4.1 and it also shows the text update working.
If I make a new tree with TD v4.1 then it seems that the Text\Update function works. There seems to be something stopping my present installation of either TD version interfacing to the databases with archived TD files.
It suddenly occurred to me to check the folder properties whilst trying these KKP/TD files as I remember warnings about "Read Only" being automatically set in making a CD.
What did I find, but all my KKP database folders properties were set with the Read Only greyed out, but Archive and Hidden tick boxes empty! I generated some TEMP folders (to avoid possible corruption) for a couple of KKP and TD files and reset the properties to Archive (although Read Only still showed as greyed out?). I then changed the linked databases in TD to the new TEMP folders. This time when I made text changes in the databases they were shown in the TD tree - at last!
I then went through all the 30+ database folders and the containing folder and made sure Archive was ticked - although Read Only is still greyed out - I don't understand this?
I don't know why all the KKP folders had their properties set like this. I do not recall transferring the folders from a CD in the past, but just updating the files with the new KKP versions as needed.
Could I ask, Nick, if the database folder path can be inserted in the blue title bar in KKP, just as it is in TD? I think the problem is solved, but how it was initiated I don't know.
