Its only a minor niggle but every time I start RootsMagic I get the box displaying news and updates etc. I have tried ticking the 'do not show this box again' option + unchecked the 'display news screen' option but the box  pops up every time, is there an easy  way to stop it or are adverts just a fact of digital life?

The current version of RM6 is 6.3.3.2 - the news box will continue to display until you install that update (or move to RM7).

Tried that and it works - many thanks!!

I only normally install updates if there appears to be a good reason to (lost count of the times an update has caused more problems than it solved!) so I guess the annoying box just seemed permanent.

Thanks again.

Correct, I get it all the time, thing is the DataClean Beta was removed in the 6.3.3.2 update.

Yes, I miss the Data Clean function, but have decided to hold off a bit longer on upgrading to RM7 (which got Data Clean back). I'm not at all interested in the linkage with FSFT and Heritage, particularly with all the problems being experienced. I have a wifi connection where I live, and the documented slowness and balkiness of the FSFT connection would make that feature nearly worthless to me.

You are not alone, I believe it will be RM8 before we see many of the long standing wishes come forth and very hopefully then and not later.
