Template confusion
I just installed the latest download of Ultra Recall (v4.1b). But now when I open a Sample database and try to insert any kind of child item anywhere in the database, it fails. Further, if I right click anywhere on the data explorer tree and look under "Insert Child"...I get a blank pop up with nothing in sharp contrast to normal behavior where the pop up has a list of template data items to choose from.

I can open existing databases and they work as always, it's just the sample databases that fail.

(Caution I may have used some terms incorrectly above as I'm a novice to UR, but hopefully the point is clear).

Any ideas? Thx!

Perhaps this is the explanation of your observation.

Note: The sample databases are read-only. To modify a sample database or use it as a template for your own use, click File | Save As on the menu to save the database in your personal folder. The saved copy can be modified as desired.

Thank you so much! It was the "read only" part of your message that lead to the solution. When I saved the sample under a new name so it wouldn't be read only...the list of template items popped right up as I tried to insert a data item.

Duh! My bad....I knew I was supposed to make a copy of the read-only sample files....I just had a senior moment and messed up...thanks for helping me out!
