- loss of some text
- disordering of data
- punctuation errors
A solution I have proposed and repeat as a wish is for RootsMagic to have user-customisable sentence templates for each source template for the GEDCOM tags TITL and PAGE to which it already writes. The technology is already developed; it merely needs to be applied to the Export process.
Setting aside such a development, I had concluded some time ago that, in order to maintain the integrity of sources on export, it was advisable to store citations in the Free-Form or similar format.
Recently, I came to realize that there is another strategy that results in the export of sources faithful to their RootsMagic footnotes from any and all types of source templates. It requires the batch conversion of every unique citation into a Master Source - what I call "ultimate splitting", just prior to exporting. One would do so on a temporary copy of the database from which the export would be made. Work can be continued on the original database at any suitable working level of source lumping/splitting.
The strategy is illustrated in Ultimate Splitting of Sources for Better GEDCOM from RootsMagic and the SQLite scripts are available at Sources - Adventures in Extreme Splitting. In the future, I will add the function to RMtrix.
