Hi Claire,

I am not sure what happens on a Mac when you install a program.
I hope Mac aware people will be able to help.

Hi Claire,
this sounds like you don't have GraphViz installed (it includes the
dot program).

I guess that before this GEDCOM file you have been using the examples
provided with the program, right? When a new file is loaded
geneaquilts attempts to generate the layers for the new genealogy. To
do this, it needs access to the dot library provided in the GraphViz
program. You can find a link in the geneaquilts website to the
GraphViz project so you can download it and install it on your mac.

let us know if the problem persists,
Anastasia

Dear Claire,

I am happy it worked in the end but there should be a simpler way of
installing GraphViz that works with GeneaQuilt.
I've copied this email to the mailing list so that others having the
same problem can find a solution.

BTW, I'll be in DC tomorrow, if the snow permits.

Thanks Claire for your tip. We'll try to find a more convenient way to
have GeneaQuilts use GraphViz on Mac OS.

Windows users you don't have to go through this. Simply install
GraphViz in the default program folder and it should work.

Pierre
