Re: New Computer 12.3.1 NO iFamily?

Hi Kathy The application you need to use is the v2.12.0 Leaf in the applications folder. It sounds to me as if that application runs but has not loaded your iFamily database file. As you have moved to a new computer it is possible that the database file is not in the correct location. Where is your ...

Re: iFamily & Monterey v 12.2.1 ?

Hi

Yes I am using macOS Monterey 12.3.1 with the latest version of iFamily v2.12.0

Other than the issue with entering dates in September as covered elsewhere on the forum I don’t have any major problems.

Hi Enid

Thanks for the update. Seems to disprove the Apple Silicon theory.

I will recheck my Mac Pro and hope that Warwick is able to identify the problem.

Are you using an Apple Silicon (M1 etc) Mac or an Intel machine?

And which operating system - Monterey or earlier?

Re: iFamily & Monterey v 12.2.1 ?

Hi, I have iFamily (v2.12.0) running fine on my M1 machines (other than some bugs reported elsewhere) and no issues with Monterey (12.3.1). Updates are a way of life I'm afraid - mainly to fix bugs and vulnerabilities as well as adding the previously promised features. Where is your iFamily data fol...

Re: Invalid Dates

Hi

I get a similar issue on an Apple Silicon MacBook Pro with Monterey 12.3 and iFamily 12.2 0 but get a requester listing the accepted formats.

It also failed on the 9 Sep 1880 so I didn’t check out the limits of the bug.

Hi Andrew No experience with Windows based family tree apps but I’m sure a net search will offer some candidates.

Re: Adding Music or Video files

Hi,

You are supposed to be able to add audio & video files in the Pictures pane by Copy & Paste or Drag/Drop but it does not seem to be working.

This is one for Warwick to resolve as it has probably become broken in some update or other.

This problem was noticed a while ago but I’m not sure if Warwick has a fix yet.

Previous messages:

Force quit seems to get through the close problem without data loss (as far as I can tell) but clearly not ideal.
