Question from a newbie:

How can I set the history search box not to clear automatically when I close the program?

Many thanks for your assistance.

There is no such option. If you remember, you could set Bookmarks for people you wish to return to or even a Named Group. These are stored in the database and will be available in the next session.

Hi Tom,
Thank you for the information.

I am working with a database of 23,000 persons imported from The Master Genealogist, and looking to replicate the View feature in TMG which is basically a bookmark file with the last 15 persons accessed, and which does not disappear when the program is closed. I am trying your advice about the RM Bookmarks file, which could be a kind of replacement were it not so clumsy to use. And I have to remember to bookmark every person I access in the database.

I am keeping my options open with respect to a program which will accept (for which I am most grateful) direct transfer from TMG. Perhaps in the next upgrade for RootsMagic there will be some changes more acceptable to us TMG users.

Many thanks from Elizabeth.

That would be an enhancement request. Beside Bookmarks, your other options are to use the Date Last Edited or color-code people as you go. I don't know that I would find it particularly useful to me to have my navigation trail recalled from the previous session. Another option is to create To Do tasks, assuming that the reason you want to go back is because there is something you want to do for that person.

There is no such option.

 

There has long been a wishlist item requesting this feature be added to RM.
