How do I transfer my current RM6 files to a new computer?  I know I can install the program on the new machine, but then how to I copy and transfer the files?  I have a feeling that this should be quite simple but can't seem to get my head around it.

I just did this. I dragged my rmgc files to their home on the new computer, then dragged all the photos (which I kept in one folder) to their new home. I installed RM6 and picked Tools -> Program Options -> Folders and set the new locations. The last part I had to relearn. That was, Lists -> Media Gallery -> Tools -> Fix Broken Media Links. After that, everything was just fine.
