I LOVE UFT, hate the thought of changing, however the thought of losing everything scares me. >
Nothing in life is absolutely sure.
True. Take it easy. I am into my 3rd month of learning TMG. I am learning a bit at a time. Something worth doing well is worth the time to learn how to do it. I may start over one more time before the first day of 2001.
You wil probably be happiest with the current Gold version rather than the stripped down (cheaper) version. (Besides, $50 + s/h isn't bad but that price is only for UFT owners until the end of this year.)
All UFT data will transfer to TMG using TMG's GENBRIDGE. Do not GEDCOM.
You will want to read the TMG post import file that explains where your data UFT can be found in TMG.
The transfer will leave your UFT project(s) unchanged so you can return to the UFT program which is right where it was, unchanged, when you imported to TMG. No you cannot add new material to TMG and then have TMG put that new stuff into UFT. That doesn't work because UFT or any other program does not import as completely as TMG does via GENBRIDGE.
The last TMG version being shipped on CD was v. 4.0a. An upgrade to TMG v. 4.0c is online at the Wholly Genes website. We have no idea which version, 4.0a or 4.0c, will be shipped if and when you order.
No. However, there are free sites on the web where you can post your webpage.
I don't really know. I think it is automatic but I have never used html, even in UFT.
< So many questions I know, but this time I want to make one decision and have it be the RIGHT one. No more companies with struggles, I have my own.>
The current owner/publisher of TMG, Bob Velke, appears to have honorable intentions and integrity, but so was Howard Nurse et al. The first companies that bought Roots III and up appeared to be good. Things didn't really fall apart until the current 'owner' company acquired UFT.
And remember, nothing in life here on earth is absolutely sure, including life here on earth. Now, if we were talking about life in the hereafter . . .
