Renee thanks for the reply. This group has others listed in it. I have used the data base tools but this does not fix the problem even after shutting down the program. I have just tried to add another person with the results of not being able to add to the list.
I even downloaded the program again but still no change.
But after doing all the above steps again it has corrected it self
Renee this problem has returned.
I added an existing person in my tree to an existing group where there are several people already on this group. After going back to check he was not linked to the group. I carried out all of the previous things like reloading Roots magic, Data base tools, backup, close program, but still will not accept adding this person to the group.
Something must be causing this problem and I now wonder how many others are not listed to groups where I have added them.
This is what I do.
click on the person
open edit person
click on groups, this opens quick groups
tick the group I want to attach this person to
close edit person file
click on groups above index
click on the group........he is not there ??????
