G'Mornin Cliff,
My PAF files are in my Windows 98 My Documents folder and I back them up on floppy disks.
I have several PAF 5.12 files for my various ancestral lines and having 2 different files open at the same time would be so much easier........especially if I could "work" from both of them simultaneously.
I tried opening one PAF file, then clicked the middle double box button, and made the window smaller as you suggested. But when I opened a 2nd PAF file, it just changed the one that was already open to the new file.
Any suggestions would be so deeply appreciatd!
