Backup Options

Any suggestions for managing backup? I note that there is a backup option in KKPro3. I suppose that backs up individual databases whereas I usually copy the whole of the database folder onto an external HDD, keeping tbe last three versions. Works OK, provided I remember to copy the datafolder regula...

Hi Peter, Presumably you want something which shows up on every page for your copyright statement. Instead of pressing the return gif into service, couldn't you do something with the 'global footer' available on the 'export web pages' window? I've used the 'global header' to provide a common heading...

Since you know date of death, I suggest "Search", "Person" and then enter the date of death in the appropriate field (or as much of the date as you are certain of) - leave all other fields blank. This won't produce a complete list ordered by date of death as you requested, but I would think that the...

Visiting websites

I notice that if you edit a source document repository via 'Edit/Source document repository', the window you are presented with includes a 'Visit website' button against the box containing the website address. Is there any reason why a similar button could not be provided in the Repository section o...

Thanks for that. SQL Query does what I want and I can code the query using the setup table in the window - you can see how the AND and OR function in the query text changes as you select 'Match any field' or 'Match all fields'. I presume in the Search/Family window, the underlying SQL Query text for...

Search function

Search doesn't seem to work as I expect it to. For example I am trying to find a family relating to the death of a widow called say Jane Smith. I open the Search/ Family window and put 'smith' in the father's surname box and 'jane' in the mother's firstname box, and select 'match all fields'. The re...

Also running XP SP3, I found no difficulty with the download and installation - it worked just like with previous updates. By the way, I'm really pleased to see that V3.0.7 now supports the V2 feature that "Person and family selection lists now retain the selected record". I really found it very fru...

I don't think it is surprising that formatting should be lost by cutting and pasting text from one application to another e.g. from your KKPro datafield window to this forum or indeed to any other destination. If you really want to preserve format, then I would think one way to do it would be to cre...

For what it's worth, editing the creation date format as indicated by davep certainly solves my problem with PHPGedView - a work-around until the next release arrives.

I also use PHPGedView and I notice that the date of the imported GEDCOM generated from KKPro is never set correctly - only the year is displayed. Could this issue be related? - I've never managed to work out the reason.

Well, I certainly think that it's a good idea to make notes in a separate spreadsheet so that you can review the relevance of the data collected at home later. But I still would like to have available my complete set of genealogical data to guide my research when at the office. I usually prepare for...

KKPro and Netbooks

I was thinking of buying a netbook as a means of taking my complete set of genealogical data to Record Offices and recording stuff while there. Does anyone have experience of running KKPro with such a small display (typically about 10 inches)? Netbooks are generally less capable than laptops, having...

Layers again

I still have some problems with how best to use layers. I find them most useful in defining family groups, say from one parish or locality. That said, I don't like the inability to navigate outside the selected layer. For my purposes, it would be more useful if instead of defined layers, it were pos...

Well, that was a misunderstanding on my part - I thought it referred to the process of converting data from the KKPro2 format to the KKPro3 format. I haven't done any merging yet. That's a relief - I didn't fancy checking the 600 families and 2500 people for source errors.
