Hi Sarah,

I don't know a way of clearing all 20 entries at one go, but if you right click on the pick list you get another menu to [Use], [Delete], or [Close] the selected entry in the pick list.

As the [Cascade open forms] pushes the first form out by the width of the border the Edit Person window looses four pixels over the edge of the screen. As the border width can be changed, th...

Windows 7 - Borders of windows & Cascade open forms

Hi Nick, If I maximize any window in Windows 7 the thin border running round the sides and bottom of a window are pushed off the edge of the screen. The same thing happens with Kith&KinPro.

Hi Nick, Thanks for the quick reply. I have compared the two types of GEDCOM file and looked at the effect when imported into Legacy7. All notes imported into Legacy7 go into one file, I never realised that. It was then that I realised how useful the privacy level feature of individual notes is in K...

GEDCOM export

Hi Nick, The GEDCOM help file says:- "File: This is the normal setting and should be used for transferring data to any system not mentioned below. Kith and Kin Pro: Use this setting if the GEDCOM file will be imported back into Kith and Kin Pro. This allows the program to include special data which ...

Data location with multiple logical drives

Hi Nick, In answer to a second question under "Default UK timeline" about what directories must exist you replied on 27 May 2009:- "That's correct both "C:\KKPro3data" and "My Documents\KKPro" folders must exist." In preparation for Windows7 I have added multiple logical drives to my system. I would...

Hi Peter,

I am glad you found a fix. Packing the database probably fixed it. You have now got me curious with your comment about missing "coloured families". Do you mean families that you selected by using Edit -> select families etc.?

The edit family icon does not allow you to select a family that is on another layer than the one opened. You can however use the search facility to select and edit these families. So it cannot be accessing the data that is the problem, it must be down to how the program tries to access the data. Too...
