RootsMagicİ V5 vs V4It says V5 but is it really?
Posted 10 July 2012 - 03:39 PM
Open RM V5 with icon in system tray
Pop up Welcome to RootsMagic displays:
1. V5 icon is in left top margin opposite the buttons for minimize, maximize and close.
2. V4 icon is in the main body to the left of “Welcome. . .” which is immediately above “What would you like to do?
Before I noticed the problem above, I was going to ask “Why does my RM5 DB look the same as RM4?
Could that have anything to do with the fact that, in trying to keep V4 intact, I copied my main DB and used the copy to export to a GEDCOM file; then opened V5 and imported the new GEDCOM?
What specifically new to V5 could I use to prove a “twin” version or just “younger sibling” version?
I also discovered I'm running in "To Go" mode when I didn't use the "To Go" icon.
Good real estate may be based on location, location, location;
good sources are based on citation, citation, citation!

The best way to migrate a database from RM4 to 5 is to make a copy of the RM4 dB and open it with 5. Exporting to GEDCOM and importing to 5 may result in changes and losses you would rather not have happen.
