I am not sure what is the cause of this problem: the file or the Hebrew.

I have a file with 3 GenoMaps in it: Start, Dodo, GenoMap3 (Empty)
I then do the following steps:
1. I add occupation to ind. (not sure it is nececary, but it happened any time I did it)
2. I'm saving the file.
3. I press the "generate report" button. I generate the report for current GenoMap (Dodo).
4. The report generator finishes the report

I now have only one GenoMap: Dodo with the content of the Start GenoMap.
If you didnt get it, run the report again and it will.

I am not sure that this is the right sequeance but it happened to me more than once.

I tried to reproduce it, and the destination report contains the correct GenoMap. The original .gno document remains unchanged.

Try to remove Occupation or somthing. I'm telling you I can do it again and again.
I agree that sometimes it dosnt happen, but then I try it a few more times - and it happens.
Two GenoMaps are somehow merged into one GenoMap.

I just sent you a file... Just try to generate the report a few times. You should see the problem.

I have fixed the bug. Can you please download Beta 13h and confirm the fix. Thanks for the file, you helped me to fix an important bug.

It seems that the bug was fixed.
I will keep trying to see if this bug re occurs, since I tried to reproduce it at work using 12g and didnt manage to do it.
Can you tell me what the bug was?

Can you tell me what the bug was?

There is a module for caching picture information. This module is shared by both the the temporary family tree containing the selected GenoMap and the original .gno file containing all the GenoMaps. The two family trees are swapped during the report generation, so the correct module gets updated. If GenoPro was requested to re-paint the family tree while generating a report, the wrong family tree (containing a single GenoMap) was used instead of the full family tree. As a result, some GenoMaps would disappear from the display.

The fix was only 5 lines of code.

What was in this file to cause this problem?
I understand that it isn't the Hebrew. Is it the pictures in the file or somthing else?
Why it didnt happen all the time and to everyone?

What was in this file to cause this problem?

The problem was not with the file but with GenoPro generating a report on a particular GenoMap. Most users do generate a report for the entire family tree. Since you are generating reports for a specific GenoMap, you found the bug. I tested the code to generate for a specific GenoMap using a very small tree (about 20 individuals), so there was no time for GenoPro to re-paint the family tree while generating the report. It is amazing how many bugs are found while working on larger documents.

This was a very serious bug; this is why I released Beta13h just for this fix.

OK. Thanks.
I had a hard time trying to figure what I did to cause that bug and reproduce it again. The interesting thing is that the file is not damaged even if you save it with the "new" display. If you open it again, you get the original file layout.
