For a long time I have wanted to see a general note, where you can put any notes that apply to the whole database. I have RM4 at present, and am wondering if this feature is in the newly released RM6?

For example, my general note would explain that my database records information, without necessarily verifying accuracy. Any one using info from it can verufy facts for a particular line if they so wish. Of course, I am therefore fairly fastidous about recording sources for my info.

Any assistance appreciated

Regards

Cedric

I can't find a way to do exactly what you described, but there are two ways you can do something similar depending on how you want to share your data. When you create a shareable CD, you can include a comment with the data similar to what you described above. You also can create a comment describing your whole file when you create HTML files or publish your data online.

Your feature request is not in RM6, it is in our tracking system for consideration.

Another option to replace this is to use the Research Logs to track any notes you want to add about the database.

I failed to make a copy of the License Agreement regarding RootsMagic when I was downloading Version 6. A couple of the posts on other forums have alluded to changes. I've done a search on RootsMagic.com but didn't find a copy. Can someone direct me to it? Thanks.
