I've been using RootsMagic 7 for a week without an issue.  However, tonight, it started doing something strange.  In the Edit Person screen when I move my arrow up or down through the facts, the dates are changing in the date column.  It appears they are copying the date from the marriage date fact and then copying them to all the facts below it.

It does not appear to be changing the date in the actual fact entry.  When I click on that fact, the correct date shows in the edit for to the right.  But, it does not appear correctly on the left hand side where all the facts are shown.  When I close the edit eprson page and reopen it, the dates are normal until I arrow down through them again.

Does this persist after closing and restarting RootsMagic?

You can also trying running all the File>Database Tools to rule out corruption in your database.
