InspectorGreenPen 17.54 "if it ain't broke don't try to fix it......?

They said the same thing when electric lights were introduced.....!"

Good gracious IGP - when did you get electric lights in your part of the world? I understood that the phrase "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" was first used by Thomas Bertram Lance, Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Jimmy Carter, in 1977.

Robert - sorry to hear you are having problems. I hope someone can help with a solution. Otherwise, I suggest you email GR directly as there is no guarantee they will see this post.

Have a look on the "Suggestions" board-someone has posted a list of problems he is encountering ! :-(

Improved functionality is welcomed but losing some of the good functionality does not help.

I have tried the new functionality and accept that familiarity with the old system helps and over time I will become familiar with the new.

Some of the difficulties I have encountered are:

1. I can't sort the results of a search any more.
2. I can't link to a search directly from an individual within the tree.
3. I can not attach a document to an individual.
4. I can not search and find my existing attached documents.

If these tasks are possible perhaps someone can advise how - otherwise I would ask GR to reinstate these functions ASAP.

Robert.....
