You might try a couple of the less involved steps here to see if any might make a difference:

You could try uninstalling and reinstalling RootsMagic but I think the problem is deeper than that.

I have RM version 3 purchased 2006, I've not been using it much for various reasons and am now getting back into FH and checking my sources etc. The version 3 does not like multicite now, unless I'm doing it wrong, and notes don't show as a tick. question is am I better off buying it or doing the free update. and also will my tree and all it's info move over as I have these gremlins.
also the scanned and attached photos are not always but sometimes able to be seen when clicked.
I have backed up to memory stick, as zipped files but now cannot open those zipped files, that is probably me though
Any advise would be much appreciated. I hope this post is in the correct forum !

How about trying to resolve each issue and then posting here the steps you took for that item if things still aren't working as expected for it?

I've open a new family to test RM3 updated to (3.2.6) as suggested. Odd but there are no sources at all on the source list in this new FT.
On my smallest FT I tried again to multicite. the only way it will do it is to type in information then go to select again. There is still no tick in the source boxes though.
Re the backuped file. they are current, I was being cautious before updating or buying RM6 especially as RM3 is malfunctioning. I thick it must be best to buy RM6 and downlaod my memory stick files to it then delete RM3 OR does RM6 actually go over RM3 ?
Hopefully I'll keep broadband all day and would be grateful for tips or either of the above or even how to fix RM3 to make sure I don't lose info. Thanks

If you decide to download RM6, it can coexist with RM3, but if there's a problem with your data in RM3, importing your database into RM6 isn't likely to fix it. If I remember correctly, RM 3.2.6 was pretty stable. My recommendation had been to try to work out any data problems in RM3 before upgrading to RM6 since you'd be more familiar with RM3.
