I have been using TMG for about 15 years. In all those years I have never lost data or had to restore from a backup.I like being able to create my own layout and use just the features I want. TMG is well known for its customizable narrative output but I use mostly Family Group Sheets and the Visual Chartform charts, particularly the one-page charts.I have posted some screenshots of TMG sample layouts here:http://tinyurl.com/7m6csvohttp://tinyurl.com/7m6csvo
