Carolyn it may just be as simple as the screen resolution on your desktop not being set properly. I am sure once you set it the problem will go away.

Hi I have a simple question.

I have legacy 8 deluxe. On my laptop the family view page is the right size but on my desktop the boxes and writing are too big, yet they say the same when I look at the settings.

How do I make them smaller so that everything fits in.

Carolyn... When you upgraded, di you install Legacy 8 in the same directory as Legacy 7 was in?  If so, 8 automatically "converts" the old files to the legacy 8 format. This could be the cause of 7 giving you an error message when you try to open it, because the files no longer mach... Just a thought.

Hi Rick,

I have been in touch with Legacy and they are going to convert the files for me.

I cannot now open 7.5 as I get an error message. Is this because I upgraded?

William- my surnames did not get capitalized when I updated to Legacy 8. You may be able to change this by clicking on options tab, then customize and choose option 3, Data Format. 3.3 deals with surnames. Hope this helps you.

Carolyn: If you go here it may help you with your error, it does tell you what to do if you have problems.

When you said your backup did not work on Legacy 7.5 did  you do a file maintenance on your tree as it could be a database problem causing your problem.

Good Luck

Looks like someone violated the Maxim:" If it aint broke don't fix it" Legacy 7.5

works just fine. :-)

No help here from the Millennia team for a while...

I note that V8 has been upgraded again.  Maybe some of these bugs have been fixed?

I Upgraded to 8  from 7.5.  I'm finding out that I should have ordered the training video.  Its like having to learn all over gain, even though a lot of features remain, the User Interface is radically different, and takes getting used to.

Further to my last post, I have updated to Legacy 8 de luxe and am in even worse problems. When I try to convert the files I first get an error 48 and if I try again I get an error 3191. I am at my wits end...I cannot access any of my trees not on 8 or 7.It asks me to repair the file but I cannot access the file to repair it. Is there anyone who can help me
