Getting Lost finding your exhibits in TMG?

Then you need PathWiz!

Suitable for Version Ver 8 of TMG

What is PathWiz?

The following is a general description of PathWiz!  operation - see screen shots in the Help pages for more detail. (Release version's screens may differ slightly from those shown here.)

The PathWiz!  program is an exhibit and path management tool which allows you to access a TMG Version 7 project database table ( dbf ) containing paths to and information attached to exhibits  ( graphical images and other files ) stored anywhere on your local PC. If you are changing computer storage arrangements or sending your backup (sqz) files to a chart printing service you may wish to consolidate all the required image files into one folder.

In addition, the ability to directly edit the Topic, Reference, Description and Caption fields of a list of  related exhibits (for example - External Images attached to persons) from one screen with the ability to see the actual images both internal and external provided they are available.

On the way a 'Comprehensive Exhibit Catalogue' may be produced both internally and in MSWord - effectively an inventory of all exhibits.

The PathWiz! program operates in a number of steps and maintains complete protection of your original data files. TMG itself will be closed during use of PathWiz!

Please note:
As PathWiz! is designed to allow you to alter details of exhibits in your TMG projects (which may contain one or more data sets), we would always advise you to create a backup of a project in TMG before you begin using PathWiz!

Alternatively, you may prefer to work on a copy of your project whilst leaving your main project untouched until you have completed your changes. When you are happy with your changes you can then designate the copy to be your main project.

PathWiz! allows you to work on both, unlocked and locked data sets (i.e. if you wish to produce a specific report from a locked data set), however, if you choose to refresh a locked data set in TMG's Data Set Manager changes made in the locked data set will be lost.

Comment by Robin Lamacraft of 'Sceya Charts' Panoramic printed colour Charts  from


'I have used it (an early beta) successfully to unpick several projects that have been moved from one machine to a new one where the old Exhibit paths were no longer valid.'
