Bug Fix Release 3.0.4

I've just been prompted to download the latest bugfix release for KKPro3 which is 3.0.4, and I note that it is intended to fix the problem of wrongly-associated sources in imported databases. Can you tell me how extensive the problem is? I have imported a database from KKPro2 and have done some work...

I think the idea of 'clans' or groups of families is much more in line with what layers actually does and may be better named as such. One of the problem I have met in working with these 'layers/groups' is that they have definite edges. Thus if you select a child in a family on the edge of a layer/g...

I find no logic in the idea of layers applied to a genealogical chart. Essentially it seems to have just two dimensions to my mind. I would be interested in the thoughts of others, but I have only used layers to highlight a temporary selection of families while working on them. For example, using 's...

Marriage date option in family rectangles

I find that the option for the display the marriage date in family rectangles is a useful guide to navigation around a large database. However, I've noticed that nothing is displayed if the marriage date is filled with a text string. That's not surprising, but a problem for me since I use text to re...

Problem in adding a second marriage

I seem to have a problem in getting a second marriage to register correctly on the main display, as follows. I have the Person Details window open and right-click in the marriages box, intending to add a second marriage to a previous marriage. The Family Details box appears and I fill in details of ...

Error message when using 'show relationship' tool

When I use the 'select person to edit' window, I can select a person and go to the Person Details form as normal. However, when I use the 'show relationship' tool which opens this same window, I get an error message which says 'Table 1: Field 'Description' not found' when trying to select the first ...

'Select Person/Family to edit' window

Another minor issue, where behaviour seems to have changed between V2 and V3, is that when you open successively the 'Select Person/Family to edit' window, KKPro no longer remembers where you were, but instead returns to the top of the list. I would prefer it to remember where I was - many times my ...

Pasting into Notes window

When I paste text into the Notes window on the family entry form and then immediately open the large Edit window the pasted text does not appear. To get the text to appear, I have to click the accept button. In V2, as I recall, the pasted text was immediately visible for editing. This is only a mino...

Missing scrollbars?

I seem to be missing the scrollbars in the Notes window on the Person/Family data forms. In V2, scrollbars appeared when the text was too large for it all to fit in the window. I know I can see all the text if I open the Edit window, but that's sometimes inconvenient, and it's not always obvious tha...

Most genealogical advice I've read on publishing is that data on living people should not be included without their permission. The opposite view is that all BMD data is available to the public anyway. My personal opinion is that I would want to avoid offending living relatives by unwanted publicati...

Just thought of another one:
Is it possible to have a more incremental zoom between 1 and 2? On my display, 1:1 is legible (of course), 1:2 generally is not. So zooming out generally is only useful to show tree layout.

I too like the family linkage representation of KKPro which suits my way of doing family history, but I would agree that ways of organising the space could be helpful when the number of families becomes large. I would endorse the features suggested by Nick and my own additional wish list is as follo...

I did some further research on the web and found some SQL tutorials and discovered the LIKE command which seems to do more or less what I want. Thus, WHERE (People.'Surname' LIKE D_N%) finds all surnames from DONNE to DUN. However, it also finds a lot uf unrelated surnames. What I really need is som...

Thank you. I can see that this would do the job. Presumably I would extend this to multiple aliases by adding them as: (Aliases.'Surname' = 'HUNTER1') OR (Aliases.'Surname' = 'HUNTER2') etc and the same for variants in the surname field. My problem is a surname which is appears in the records as DON...
