While merely reading data on the Family Screen, an error msg popped up telling me:

RootsMagic has encountered an unexpected error: Cannot focus a disabled or invisible window

RM did not have to close. After I sent the requested msg to RM, the pop-up closed and I was back reading the Family Screen.

What's up with this?

I often use the ESC key to back out of dialog boxes/window modules when I know I don't want to save any data. This is particularly convenient since RM buttons don't support Smart Move. Hitting the ESC key when already on the main screen will result in this message. It's a new bug in RM6.

Only place on the main screen that it doesn't happen in Essentials is the Timeline view. That must be the window related to the focus problem.

Good catch, Kevin.
