Name change in desktop database not picked up in iPhone app
Posted 08 June 2013 - 03:31 PM
Given name: Marian G
Given name: Marian C L
I copied the updated database to dropbox, downloaded and synced to the app. Alfred's spouse still shows as "Marian G". "Marian C L Corson" (her edited name) does show up in the individuals list, but does not connect her to her husband Alfred Hambleton. Other edits I had made are reflected in the app. I went back to my original database on the desktop. ran the database utilities and redid the copying, downloading and syncing, but it was still the same problem.

Now in Roots Magic app, record #2902 brings up Marian G, I can find Marian C L Corson in the app by searching, but she has no relation to anyone else - she's a standalone with just her name and birth date displayed.
However, it just got mysteriouser and mysteriouser, Just now I clicked on Amos Corson (her father) in the list of Corsons in the app and the app crashed. Then I restarted the app and, miraculously, everything was in place correctly! What? No more Marian G to be found - just Marion C L Corson as record #2902 married to Alfred Hambleton and her mother and father are connected to her, as well. Who knows.... Maybe it was just all a display issue in the app.
