I'll try to answer your question, at least tell you what works for me.First of all the TMG report is not going to be just like the UFT report. Also I'm not sure which order of the Family Journal Report you're referring to, the Descendant Report, Reverse Register, or Family. I'm assuming Descendant. Most of what pertains to the Descendant report is the same for the Reverse Register.
In TMG you want the Descendant, Journal Narrative report. From the Report menu option select the Custom Report Writer and select one of the Genealogy Reports (Custom, Modified Register, Register), click on Select and click on Open a copy. This permits you to keep the original sample as is and lets you create a new report definition. Change the Configuration Name so you don't have two reports with the same name.
One of the main differences between the UFT report and the TMG report is UFT prints the birth, death, burial info in the first paragraph and then the marriage info for all marriages in the second paragraph. TMG prints the birth, all marriages, divorces if any, death, and burial info in the first paragraph followed by the other event tags in chronological order.
Additionally, UFT added the parents of the spouse if known through coding in the report (no control by the user) whereas TMG requires a parameter in the sentence structure to include the parents. Since TMG imported the sentence structures from UFT basically as they were written, they do not have this parameter for the parents. If you want the parents indicated you need to modify the template for the marriage roles of groom and bride as imported from UFT. Click on the yellow + sign next to the tag list, select Marriage and click on edit. If you look at the sentence structure for TMG's Principal role you'll see a parameter <[PARO]>. This is the parameter to include the parents if they are known. You need to add this parameter to the roles for bride and groom. This will take care of all marriage tags that use the default sentence. If you have marriage tags where you modified the role sentence in UFT, you will need to modify each of these individually. There is a way to search and create a list of individuals with these modified roles that we can discuss later if necessary.
Now, in the Custom Report Writer, go to the Type tab. You will see four options under Style; NEHGR, NGSQ, TAG, and Custom Format. If you select one the first three you will see that the options under Miscellaneous are grayed and can't be selected. However, those options that pertain to the select report are checked. I prefer to check Custom Format which permits you to select the miscellaneous options as you wish. Two that I like to make sure are selected are "Spouse Events" and "Months spelled out". You need to select "Spouse Events" to get all of the event tags for the spouse to print. They will print after the event tags for the individual. The spouse birth, death, burial info is included there, not in the sentence with the marriage as if UFT. The other selections under Miscellaneous set according to your preference. You may want to run a few test to see what options you like best. You can limit the number of generations that will print on this tab also, under "Number of Geneations:". Also to make sure all event tags will print under Surety select Threshold 0 and check "Include blank surety" on this tab.
Next, on the Tags tab, under Tag Type you can choose to print no tags, all tags, or selected tags. If you choose selected tags, click on Define and Mark or Unmark the tags you want to print or not print. Under BMDB Abbrev it's my preference to select "He was born in 1861". This makes complete sentences ending in a period for each of the BMDB tags in the first paragraph. If you select one of the other selections, these tags are separated by semi-colons.
This brings to mind another thing to consider. In the import from UFT, you probably took the default of having the memo [M] parameter added to the end of the imported sentences for the event tags. This permits the "text" info from UFT which is now in the Memo field of the event tag in TMG to print at the end of the event tag sentence. This, however, causes a problem with where the superscripts for the citations attached the tag prints. They do not print until the end of the complete tag sentence which now includes the memo, in other words, at the end of the memo. This means, if you have a long memo, that the citation you have entered for the date/place of the tag does not print until the end of that memo. Also any embedded citations that you may have in the memo text will print where embedded. Because of this I took all of my text out of the memos for event tags and included in the biography tag. This does mean that this info does not print with the tag. For me, I find this acceptable. I end up with the vital info for birth, marriage, divorce, death, burial all printed in the first paragraph, followed by the biography info which includes more detail that relates to the individual directly or to one of those events.
Back to the Tag tab. Under Events, you should probably select All Variations or All Plus Witnessed. Selecting Primary Only will only print those tags marked with an * for Primary. TMG permits only one tag in a tag group to be marked primary, i.e. there can only be one tag in the birth group which includes Christning, Baptism, etc. to be marked primary. To print all in the group you need to make a selection other than Primary Only. Selecting All Plus Witnessed will include any tags where the individual is a witness. Again you may want to run some test reports to see which best suites you. Under Exclusion you can choose to include or exclude Excluded data or Sensitive data. See Help or the Manual for how these items are marked. Under Places you can select those place fields you want to print. You can also choose to have commas inserted where items are missing, not something I like. At the bottom center you will see "at", "in", and "(blank)". This refers to the preposition that will print with the place info, i.e., "at Davidson Co., Tennessee" or "in Davidson Co., Tennessee".
The selections under the Misc. tab are fairly self explaining. One question that arises occasionally is how to bold the surname. Back on the General tab, click on Layout, select the Fonts tab. There you can control the font, size of the font, and whether to bold or not for various data elements.
Also, on the General tab, you may want to select Publication Tools and look at those options. On the Memo/Sources tab, you can select to include Memos and Sources and whether to include them as embedded, endnotes, footnotes, etc. If you have the memo parameter [M] include in the tag sentence as we discussed earlier, the memo selection here has not effect on those memos. Those memos print at the end of the sentence at all times. An example where I make use of the memo selection here if for the Subject name-var tag. Under the subject button in the Individual view is the name-var tag for the subject. There is no sentence for this tag. I sometimes include certain info I want to print with the subject's name in the memo field of this tag. Therefore on this tab I will check Embedded under Memo, and this info will be included in the report.
On the Exhibit tab under Publication Tools you can choose to include Exhibits (your multimedia from UFT) in the report. To include Exhibits you have to be printing to file with a word processor selected that will accept the Exhibit output, usually Word or WordPerfect. You have the options of printing the Exhibits as embedded or in footnotes or endnotes, an option you did not have in UFT. You can choose to have exhibits for the individual print centered and with a caption, and you can have exhibits attached to event tags printed, but no captions for the event tag exhibits. This is one are where I think UFT does a better job. There is info in the Change.txt file under changes for 4.0c that covers the printing of exhibits.
This has been a brief overview of the way I do the Descendant report (okay, maybe a little lengthy overview ). I hope this helps some. There may be other detail questions that you might have and I'm happy to try to provide answers. You posted the query on both the TMG and UFT boards so I'm going to put a copy of this reply on each.
