When you have a lot of trees in the one RM file, is there a way to find which tree a person is in, without going through each tree.??

 

I keep these trees all together in the 1 RM file as it is better for cross reference sake.

This does not sound like a RootsMagic question. What kind of file? What kinds of lists?

In RM 7.

Go to Tools, Count trees.

Highlight the first tree and click on Go to tree.

The beginning person of that tree will be highlighted on the main screen.

Open that person's Edit person screen.

Click on the Groups button to open the QuickGroups screen and choose Manage groups

Create a new Group.

Highlight and mark that person and choose Mark Group, Everyone in the highlighted person's tree.

Name the new Group, Tree [Name of person].

Repeat for all the trees at Tools, Count trees.

Open any person's Edit person screen. Open the QuickGroup screen. Check to see which Tree Group is checked for that person in the Group list.

Thanks for the above but something is missing.

Each time you create the next group going down the list of trees the previous group changes its name to the last done group.

Example say the first tree was Jones and you set that groups names as Jones.

Then you do the next tree and say it is Smith and you set that group name as Smith.

When you go back to the Jones group person, that persons group now is Smith.

 

So how can you name each tree with a different group name and they stay that way ???

Create a new Group for each tree.

Laura did that and after forming the group for the second tree the first tree group name changed to the name of the second tree.

 

This happened to about 6 trees in a row and all ended up with the same name as tree 6

Groups don't change names unless you do a rename of the group. There may be a terminology problem here. Could you describe in a little more detail the process you are going through that ends up getting the names of your groups to be changed?
