I just ran the import here and the large file imports in 40 seconds on my machine.

That doesn't surprise me, as Supreme is a lot faster in a lot of functions than IDimager, which is what I used to import it.

Hert - have you actually had a look at the Library of Congress Website that I linked to? The vocabularies are freely distributed there: https://www.loc.gov/rr/print/tgm1/
All I did was re-uploading the files that SarahKM distributed! They are the Library of Congress table data re-formatted to be compatible for the import into PSU/IDI.
BTW; the TGM is included in PSU (Data->Import formatted vocabulary file)
Great, I did not know that..

Nothing owned or distributed by the U.S. Library of Congress is copyrighted because the agency is funded entirely by taxpayers. You used to make those files formatted by SarahKM available to everyone and even provided notice that you were doing so.

You seem to be confused. The file will be displayed there only if you have previously used Supreme to select it on your computer system.

Sorry, Mike, I forgot to put the quotes (and now edited my previous post) - Hert actually wrote that the TGM is included in PSu...

Hi Hert,

Sorry, but in which folder is that file supposed to be???
I don't seem to have any *.utf8 file on my system...

Not on my system. Using that click stream merely takes me to the files on my computer.

As an example, I'm the only person conducting searches of my photos and I use only Supreme to conduct them. So, I know I'll always conduct a search of orange, knowing that the singular and plural forms will be returned if either or both exist.
Thanks for that very important disclaimer which clearly differentiates how discussions could be worded differently when considering that other users might want the maximum usefulness & operability of their files once they have left the realm of PSu. In fact I have changed my signature to reflect this, so that readers are aware of this vital point.
Never say never change, but using Mac since 2005. Photo Supreme 3.3.0.2605. I endorse the interoperability of files between applications and systems.
