Hi Nick, I also renames it. I know the renamed timeline cannot be deleted but the entries had all been erased. I was wondering how I would have restored them if I had not made a copy. My second point was on the "KKPro" folder under "My Documents" . Are you saying that the "C:\KKPro3data" folder & th...

Default UK timeline

Hi Nick, Experimenting with the timeline feature I deleted the default UK timeline, luckily I had made a copy. If I hadn't made a copy where could I recover it from without reinstalling Kith and Kin Pro V3? I cannot find a copy in "Data files" in the "Downloads" section of your web site. The program...

Hi Nick, Following your reply to John I have moved my data files by copying the KKPro3Data folder to another location. I then open K&KPro3 and select my data folder at its new location. I close K&KPro3, and delete the C:\KKPro3Data folder. When I open K&KPro3 I get the error message "Unable to open ...

Hi all, To give quick access to all references to a particular source document use the following query. The document code will be the one found under the "Code" column of the "Source documents" window and will be unique to your database. It could be a particular church baptism records, or a census y...

Help - Export PDF file

Hi Nick,

If you click the [Help] icon on the "Export PDF file" window the help file jumps to the "Setting picture options" screen rather than the "Exporting a report to a PDF file" screen.

Hi Nick, Thanks for the query syntax to combine the layers and families databases, it does list all the layered families and show which layer each family is in. SELECT F.[Description], L.[Description] Layer FROM Layers L, Families F WHERE L. = F.[Layer] By experimenting I have discovered that it is ...

Hi Nick,

Is it possible to add scroll bars to the Publication details & Notes windows of the Source Document window? The data in these fields can spill over and not be obvious and it is not possible to open these fields in edit mode to see all the text at once.

Hi Nick, I am still playing with the layers feature. I don't know how the program records which layer a family is on so this idea may be a no no. Would it be possible to show which families have not been placed on any layer? It is easy to do -> Select families -> Descendants or Ancestors to grab a g...

Layers

Hi Nick, If you have to add any update to version 3 would it be possible to create Button Bar icons for some of the Layer features? I am trying to decide how best to use layers. It would be easier to move families to different layers if there were Button Bar icons for "Use as a new layer .." , "Move...

Hi Nick, More on the import GEDCOM. My screen resolution is 1680 x 1050. Changing it does not change the problem. If I use the Tree Control Area to zoom out to 15% and try to move the imported families off the right hand edge of the screen they hit the limit by the right hand edge. If I create a new...

Hi Nick, More observations rather than faults. I notice when installing version 3 that it gives you the option to change where the program is installed, but there is no choice as to where the database, the timeline files, & the html folders are installed. Is this a Vista requirement? I run Windows X...

Hi Nick, I have tested Beta 7 and all the picture problems I had are now working ok. One area you may want to think about is the help file for adding pictures. I wanted to use the same picture twice.
