Hi there,

I've just migrated my PAF5 file over to RootsMagic. I'm having a problem with the to-do lists and the notes. I cannot enter any text in any fields at all. I can start new notes or to-do lists, and have a static cursor showing in the first field.

Any advice please?

Try File > Database Tools, running each tool in the list in order from top to bottom. If that does not solve the problem, try creating a new empty database and drag'n'drop Everyone to it. Can you type into this one? If both procedures did not protest and you still cannot enter notes, maybe the program is somehow corrupted and should be reinstalled.
