  • Created a new, empty database and added a single person by clicking on an empty box on the screen in Pedigree View. After adding the person, the mouse pointer is "locked" and will not work. At this point, the mouse pointer looks like the symbol that many wall posters have when they are saying "No Whatever", with a big red circle with a slash through it on top of a picture of "Whatever". Windows calls this symbol the "Unavailable" symbol, and renders it in white rather than in red. This is a real Mickey Mouse, trivial little error because the mouse pointer can be unlocked by simply clicking the mouse. But it's still annoying. I've noticed that the error manifests itself in some of the RM webinars, but the presenter always clears the error quickly and deftly and without comment.
  • Drag and drop and GEDCOM export still loses carriage returns at the end of notes. I view this as a very serious bug because it's a data integrity problem.

I read somewhere it may still drop media items and other bits which were reported bugs in RM4 a long time ago!

Which media items may be dropped? I'm not sure that I recall this one, but may just need to be reminded if it truly is a problem.

Found it again but maybe it is more to do with merging, anyway would be interesting to see if it was fixed
