Re: Data in text boxes not all printing

In Reply to: Data in text boxes not all printing by Bill Teschek of 11492


Sometime recently, I recall seeing this problem explained but I cannot find that message series. I vaguely recall it had something to do with the program refusing to print text after the first text citation. There was no cure, yet.

Technically, you have not lost any data. The missing text is still in there but something is causing it to not print. There was a suggestion of placing the citation at the end of the report text. Not exactly a good answer when you have one citation that needs to precede another citation.

Another possible cause for your problem may be that you used a reserved character in the body of the text. See UFTree white paper manual pages 14 and 15. 'Reserved Characters and Rich Text Format Printing.' "# number sign -- The number sign is used in Ultimate Family Tree role sentence codes. Do not use the number sign in Ultimate Family Tree name, text, event detail place, or date fields." Scan the offending text for any #.

Also / and {} can only be used in the Individual Name field. Never \ when you might be printing in an RTF file.

If you have been following this (or the previous) message board you probably recognize the 'new' company (pick any one since there have been so many metamorphosis' of UFTree ownerships), as a company, is paranoid. It would appear that the head office/corporate board, whatever, had decreed 'Thou shalt not promise a fix, or suggest when a fix or update might be offered.' Can't let the competitors know. I wonder if the 'other' three genealogical programs owned by the same company are considered 'competitors' and must not know when projected fixes and updates for UFTree are going to occur. :-)

Since the 'no tell' policy is etched in stone, we can only hope (and gripe).

If and when a fix occurs, we will, hopefully, be told.

In a related but non-data matter, we were promised notification of a fix for the 'free 3 month research membership'. The fix did happen but we were not notified of that fix in what I consider a timely manner. (Sorry, Paul B. You did promise and you did belatedly notified us. Thanks for the latter, at least.)
