Totally agree. I am at a loss trying to understand why such an obvious
and important feature of reports has been ignored by Bob Velke and co.

Geoff,
I agree with your number one, except for ALL reports. I wish that
descendancy order was one of our options for printing all reports when
more than one person is selected. (Especially when the filter we use is
Descendants of ID#).

Subject: [TMG] Family Group Sheets

Having converted from UFT to TMG I am having some difficulty with Family
Group Sheets which I have previously used as a very effective tool for
providing information to, or soliciting information from family members.



1. UFT had the provision to print Family Group sheets for an
extended family with the sheets being printed in descendant order.
Combined with an index, this produced a convenient document to forward
to other family members in order to solicit further details or just to
provide a simple family history.



TMG appears to have a range of different orders, ie alphabetical, date
order, ID number etc but no descendant order.



2. In UFT a sheet could be produced for each individual if
required, or more practically, one page for a married couple or
unmarried with children. Relevant pages included details of all children
and those who were married then had there own page. Those not married,
or without children, only appeared on their parent's page. This avoided
the necessity to print pages for the numerous single children,
particularly of the youngest generation.



TMG prints a page for every person and two pages for each married
couple.



Have I missed something in TMG in order to produce reports in the UFT
manner, is there a work around or is TMG actually deficient in this
area?



Regards





Geoff
