I'm using RootsMagic next to Gramps, because Gramps can do things that RootsMagic can't, and vice versa.

Now, when I import a GEDCOM file created by Gramps, it turns out that source reference notes are not imported. I.E. I see a text like @N1234@ in RootsMagic, instead of the note text itself.

As far as I understand GEDCOM a construct like @N1234@ always means that the actual note text must be read from a GEDCOM section like

0 @N1234@ NOTE text
1 CONT more text

and RootsMagic does that for notes that are attached to persons and families, but not for my source references.

I can provide a small GEDCOM to show what's going on.

It's probably best to open a support ticket and send us the Gramps GEDCOM. Then let us know which people, sources and notes to look at.
