Hello all,

I'm sorry for writing in English. Hope it's acceptable. I can translate any answers into Dutch that is fine if you don't know English.

I have a major problem with Aldfaer. For a while it did not work - "error" - but after a week it came on again. Although I can add data, I can no longer produce any reports. 

Also the information for each person (on the left side - where you can add data) is now completely black - instead of showing their name, dates & places, parents/siblings it has black strips covering the info!! I can click and then write in new info, but I still can't view it.

Although it's still possible to add data (have been doing it like that for a few weeks) it is very frustrating to not be able to navigate properly or produce any reports.

Perhaps there is an update I have missed or something? An error I can fix?

I tried to add a screenshot but didn't work. Could trying emailing to anyone interested.

Haven't explained too well but maybe someone recognises the issue.


Many thanks!

Vriendelijke groeten
