The Master Genealogist v6.05

October 31, 2005

The Master Genealogist v6.05 is now available from Wholly Genes, Software. The Master Genealogist (TMG) is a Windows genealogy application. Version 6.05 is free for existing customers, but it does require v6.00 of TMG. To install the update, from within TMG 6.0+, select the “Help” menu and then select “Check for an update”, or you can select the “Check for a Program Update” option from the TMG’s Start Menu grouping. The update will then install, and a restart of TMG will be required.

* Tag Entry – A warning now occurs if, when saving the Tag Entry screen, the style assignment for an existing place could be changed.
* GEDCOM export – The links for most external exhibit types directly supported by the Exhibit Log, including text files and PNG files, will be exported to GEDCOM.
* Slideshow Manager – When an exhibit is added to the SSM from the Exhibit Log, the text in the Caption field will be copied to the Description field of the slideshow frame.
* DNA Log – The Relative Genetics templates and URLs were updated. Relative Genetics has added markers for all three or their tests. If you have recorded Relative Genetics data, you need to check to make sure that the data is recorded in the correct fields.


* Tag Entry

    – It was possible under some circumstances for a citation to be accidentally deleted by either (a) entering a citation by clicking or double-clicking the blue bar in the empty Tag Entry citation field or (b) clicking into an empty Tag Entry citation field and entering a citation using F3 or (c) clicking on an empty “Source for this source” field in the Source Definition Screen and adding a citation using F3 or CTRL+F3.
    – A situation could occur where the Details window and Project Explorer each had a different focus and a new tag would end up linked to the wrong person.
    – A second primary Marriage tag could be created by editing a second existing Marriage tag which only had one spouse specified and adding the second spouse.
    – Memo and Sentence fields – Some newer variables missing from the right-click menus were added.
    – If you added an embedded citation to a memo, and while doing so added a new source, with a new repository, the program froze when you tried to close the Source Defintion screen.
    – Add/Edit Witness screen – The ‘click-area’ for the Role selection box was revised.
    – If you opened the Tag Entry screen, added one or more witnesses, clicked [Tag Type] and edited the tag type, saved the tag type, saved and reopened the tag, the added witness(es) were missing.
    – When the Citation window was open, it was possible to click on a specific part of the Tag Entry window causing it to come to the front and not allowing you to return to the Citation screen.

    – A grayout could occur after accessing Cue Cards from the picklist.
    – The [Clear] button was not resetting the names selection to ‘Both’.
