1.Remark= No choice in which way to print; print immediately. No mentioning of “Report GA 008R01 Books “ in the footer.
Question: Would it not be possible to have the possibility to adapt or to add other fields by the fields “Ref code + title + author+ library ref+ date borrowed+ date due back”? For example: “The mentioning of the page and eventually title of an interesting subject concerning the garden plants, the print year and the ISBN number, and so on. Guidelines about the possible utilities of “GA 608 Books?”
2.Remark= No choice in which way to print; print immediately.  No mentioning of “Report GA 009R01 Magazines” in the footer.
Question: Would it not be possible to have the possibility to adapt or to add other fields by the fields “Ref code” + “Title”? For example: “The mentioning of the name of an interesting article in the magazine + page ?” + “other info’s like price of the magazine, year of acquisition or print date” and so on. Guidelines about the possible utilities of “GA 609  Magazines”?
3. Remark: It is not possible to add “an author” in screen GA 010SO1- new source” !!
 Question: Would it not be possible to have the possibility to adapt or to add other fields by the fields “Ref code,title,author” ? Guidelines about the possible utilities of “GA 610 Other sources”?
4. Question: I have 9 genera for the moment. Although printing goes well, by the genera “Paeonia” and “Hydrangea Linnaaeus” the following mention appears by “Print preview” or “Print” : “Warning erro- not found in spec data”. Why? How to resolve

6a1 /
6a2.Question: Which labeltype and which Brother printer? Guidelines?
6a3.Question: Which labeltype and which Dymo printer? Guidelines?
6a4=: Print report GA029RO1: Remark: It would be much better if in the title appears beneath “the name, place and land of the gardener” also “Specimen events report”. Question: The meaning and printing consequenses under screen” GA629SO2 Specimen and events report” of “Show main photo” & “Photos”? Guidelines?
6a5. Remark= PRINT give us for the moment no print for 1 specimen (when one clicks on “print” ->screen GA100S69 disappears!!!) -> Ideas Genie has to create the lay-out of the unexisting report.

6b1. Question: isn’it possible to also print a recapitulation of the cost prices by garden area, so it gives us on one page an overview of the total cost of the garden area’s ?
6b2. Question= idem 6b1

6f. ….

7. /
8. /
9. Remark= print -> error -> EXIT (bug). Is the reason there isn’t for the moment a review?. Question: Where can one add a reviewer and a review name? Guidelines and example please.
10. Remark: Only possible by month. Why not also by year ? Question about the print “Task by tasknumber”: Why doesn’t it print also the noted “task notes”? Question about the print of “Task by culture type all tasks” : Why can it no be printed by following tasknumber or by dates on which the tasks are done? On the print appears : “task title”+ “task number”+ “finished or active”. No mentioning of = “the taskday + specimen included+ task notes”.

17. Remark 1: Why can there not also been printed the info “noted “ which one can find under “GA100S11 Garden Profiles”?. Otherwise what’s the usefulness of what one has noted under “Notes” of GA100S11?
 Remark 2: Under “GA 616S01 My garden prog vers 4” one has the tab “Garden Area Photo’s”, but if one print the report “My Garden” there is no possibility of printing also these area garden photo’s !!! Why not???
Remark 3: Why also not mentioning the numbers of specimen of each plant in each garden area?
18. Remark 1 : Why not also by month/year subclassified by botanical name? (for example 2018/01 Acer + Narcissus +…. ; 2018/02 Hamamelis + Viburnum + … and so on ?.
Remark 2 Why also not by plant type, by month of flowering period?
19. Remark: This is so full of possibilities -> Guidelines please of the possibilities, examples and advantages of this.

20 Remark: Guidelines and examples please.

Common remarks:
1.   Much possibilities to print, but one has to search + one has no overview!!
Solution = Why not all the possibilities of printing regrouping under the tab “REPORTS”? So, one has an overview of all the printing facilities + it would be much easier to print something.
2.   Why not the possibility one should also being in the possibility to create a report form of his own?
Example 2.1. List of living specimens by alphabetic order, with the fields: Latin name, cultivarname, date of acquisition, date of planting in the garden, garden area, numbers of specimen living, numbers of specimen dead, flower period.
Example 2.2. Cost prices specimens by year/month of acquisition, with the fields “Year/month of acquisition, latin name, number of species bought, number of species death, living number of species alive, price per specimen, total price acquisition, total price specimens death, total price specimens alive.
Example 2.3. List of plants classified by flowering period.
Example 2.4. List of plants classified by garden area, subclassified by flowering period.

3.   Photo’s:
When one rename the garden photo’s or when one has to place them on an other device (new hard disc for example), one has to unlink each photo individually (in “GA 100S20 Plant photos”). This is very time consuming
 Isn’t there a possibility to choose a group of plant photos so one can them unlink in one gesture?

4.   Screen GA604SO1 Plants & garden:
When one clicks on “+dbf”, one has an output file “outfile.accdb”. Should one not be able to open it in  MsAccess + MS Word + Ms Excel (latest version Office 365)? How to handle (extended explanation) this and what will be the result?

Wow! You sure have touched on many aspects of the Ideas Genie Pro 6 system Robert!

In reply to Common Remarks No 3 in your posting, the method is already in the User Guide.
Use the program Link Photos - GA630.
Heres the link to the relevant section:
Re-pointing linked photos when a folder has been moved or renamed
