In Topic: Delete people not related to highlited person

Having color coded all those you wish to delete, you could use my SQLite script at http://sqlitetoolsfo...com/Delete Manyto accomplish the bulk deletion. Many have requested such a capability to be incorporated in RM over many years but RM Inc seems steadfast in its position that its users are too stupid to use it safely.

Reboot computer. If problem persists, then examine whether you are using the same database file that was TreeShared. If yes, then restore from a backup.

Rick, if your aptitudes lean this way, then you might find that my SQLite scripts for converting Shared facts to individual ones and for deleting the shares would save you many steps. See Facts - Split Shared to Individual


In Topic: Any Ideas on how to make a TMG-style Compressed Pedigree?

13 December 2017 - 09:32 PM

The closest thing is Reports>Charts>Box Chart>Ancestors with the Format option set to "Single line with birth and death date (no boxes)". It lacks the Marriage event and places for events that are evident in your example from TMG. To get those, you have to go to the multiline format or word-wrapped format (which uses less vertical space) and set the box style border type to "None". Examples of both are linked via the thumbnails below. This report will paginate but you can choose larger standard and custom sizes and get up to 32 generations.

In Topic: Adding Media to Named Group Members

You need Add the new media file only once to the Gallery (or to a person, a combo of add & tag) and then tag it to all the people. You can do that from within the Tag manager dialog window wherever the media item is selected. The only reason to add the file as new media multiple times is if a unique caption is wanted for each use of it.
