I have been using a netbook for several months now. Had no problem installing Legacy on it. Since it's so small and light weight it's great to take on trips. I was even able to download the driver for my printer from the internet so I can print from it.

I have purchased a netbook. Are there any problems installing Legacy to netbooks? Are there any other issues with netbooks I need to know about?

Hi Alan, don't beat yourself up about it. We all need help once in a while. BTW, I recommend spending some time in all the tabs offered in Options > Customize. It allows you to customize how Legacy works in many ways. I have adjusted many of the defaults to suite my desires. There are a few tools in there too to help us out. Like the "Test All Multimedia Paths". I only have a few photos in the default location. If I should reorganize my actual photo locations I loose the links in Legacy. This tool is a godsend to me. IMHO, Legacy is absolutley the best package out there!

Hi Bob: What can I say, if I had Brains I would be dangerous. That worked a treat, and i even changed it to open on the home page like yourself.
Thanks for getting back.
Regards Alan

Hi Alan, Go to Options > Customize. The second section of the General tab shows the family file options, Starting Family File. Select the option you prefer and look in the next section too, Starting Family. Be sure to look in the first section too - it has lots of options in how Legacy starts. I like to start with 'Legacy Home View' to get all the latest news and check for updates. My family file opens at the same time so I click on the Family tab when I am done with the new. I hope this helps

Hi Geoff, or anyone: I have been trying to save Family Tree and backing it up. But I seem to have done something.
Each time I open Legacy Family Tree. Instead of just opening it brings me to the Open Family File page, where I have to click the file which I want to open.
Can this be fixed
Regards Alan

No need for embarrassment, John... It's a lot to learn all at once!
Comment by John Archer on September 18, 2009 at 6:40pm
Hi Kathleen.

That is exactly what I wanted and I am embarrased to learn that I had not found it. Thank you for pointing it out.

Hello John-

When you open the search box in Legacy, the 5th and last tab should be for "Missing Information." That should do what you want. Unless I misunderstood.

I have been using the search facilty in Legacy Deluxe 7.0. and I can use it fairly well now after watching the Legacy DVDs. However I am having trouble compiling a list of individuals with various details missing. At present they are left blank and I don't seem to be able to find a way to search for it. I have wondered about placing "unkown" there so I can search for that. e.g. if unknown was in a birth date field I could search: Individual, birth date, contains, unknown. Seems a drastic way to do it though. Any ideas?
