Step 1: GEDCOM file selection
The File tab will first appear on your first time execution,
or when you install a new version of GénàToile where the
parameter file is not compatible with the previous version.
Click on "Change gedcom". You get a window, showing the files and directories available on your system. Select your gedcom file with a double-click on it's name, or by selecting it, then click on "Your choice".
You get a progress bar, and a beep will warn you when the file will be analyzed.
This window will not be the default one after the first
execution of GénàToile, which will load the last work parameters,
allowing you to start at the next step (gedcom file loading). The progresse
bar will display at the beginning of GénàToile.
However, you can click on the "File" tab to select an other gedcom file.
Go to next step

Warning: GénàToile stores these parameters in a file whose
name is composed with the gedcom file name, without the directory/subdirectory
name with the suffix ".gat". This parameter file is created in the
directory where is GénàToile.
If you always work with the same gedcom file name (example: "gedcom.ged"), under different subdirectories, GénàToile will not hand different execution parameters, as the parameters file name will always be the same ("gedcom.ged.gat").
As new GénàToile are released, the .gat files may be not
compatible. You will have to enter your parameters again.
