Searching with aliases

Early records often have great variability in spelling surnames. I have recorded these variants as aliases in the person record. However, when searching, I only seem to have the option to search for one particular surname. Is there a way to search the KKPro database for surnames and all associated a...

Thanks for the tip about PDFCreator. I had found it mostly satisfactory, and of course it is free, but that isn't much good if doesn't work properly. I visited the Foxit site, but I was a bit suspicious about the terms of the free trial (Trialpay?). Instead I downloaded the evaluation version of PDF...

PDF Printer Drivers

I noticed back in January there was a topic which included a discussion of the use of third-party PDF printer drivers to print out tree reports from KKPro. I have one called PDFCreator which I find generally satisfactory for most tasks, and I have been trying to use it to print out a tree on custom-...

Thanks, Nick I decided to delete the unwanted family in this case after manually transferring the children not represented in the version of the family to be retained. I suppose I could have done this to start with, but normally I find the 'Remove duplicates' tool works well and is very useful in ti...

I rebuilt all the tables with the Fix utility, but the original problem still remains. I notice that I have different family numbers, F427 and F430 as it happens, but each containing the same parents P1704 and P1705. Could that be causing the problem? Maybe I should just delete the unwanted version ...

'Key violation' message

I get a key violation message when I try to use the 'remove duplicates, family' tool. The message occurs when I select the family to merge and then click delete. I've tried the usual fixes of 'pack' and run the 'Borland Fix' utility which reports no errors in the tables. What else can I do, please? ...

I too have been impressed with the facilities offered by Google Maps. However it is possible to link to Google Maps from KKPro. Google Maps can be marked up quite easily using KMZ or KML files and if these are inserted as objects attached to a person or family, they can open Google Maps to display t...

I've also been checking out other genealogy database software. I still find the KKPro graphic interface very useful, giving me an instant overview of family connections and, as yet unconnected families. However, as my researches have progressed, I appreciate the need to to record sources more fully,...

V2.12-"Change name" problem with Win XP

Nick,

At the end of a previous topic initiated by me, you acknowledged that File/Database/Change Name didn't seem to work when running KKPro V2.12 under Win XP. I was wondering if your investigations had revealed why this should be so, and when a bug fix will issued.

Regards: Roger Donne

"Cannot perform this operation on closed data set"

I'm using 2.12 under Win XP. I got the following error message when editing a source reference: Citation Table: Cannot perform this operation on closed data set. I got the same message whatever I did to close the source reference window - the program was stuck. I'm not sure if it's due to the new ve...

I am sure that the folder is gone, since I manually deleted it from 'Data' using Windows Explorer and checked that it was no longer showing. As I said, I also find that I can't use 'Change name' to rename 'Ancestors1' to anything else. I tried renaming it to 'Dummy', which I'm sure I've never used b...

I've downloaded V2.12 and this has restored the Delete function. However, I'm still not sure that it's working as it should. For example, I export a selection of families to a database called 'Ancestors'. I export another, updated, selection to 'Ancestors1'. Because I don't want to proliferate these...

V2.11- cannot find Database/Delete

Delete seems to be missing from my File/Database menu although the Help file says it should be there just like in V2.0. Also, before, when I manually deleted a database via Windows Explorer, it automatically disappeared from the list of databases available. In my installation of 2.11 the name of the...

Thanks for that. It's a relief to know that Pack/Fix can't generate errors. I naively imagined that the Pack command may cause the data to shuffle down and become misaligned! I certainly had some previous problems with the sources table which I had to put right with Pack/Fix, so possibly that's wher...

Migrating source references?

As I have been checking my source references, I've noticed that several seem to have become mis-associated. In particular, some 'birth' source references now appear to be linked to 'general' source references; in some cases they even seem to be linked to the wrong indivdual. This was fairly obvious ...
