With the discontinuation of FTM I am hopeful to find a program that will do comparable book publishing and am seriously considering RM. I downloaded essentials and RM looks like what I want but I am going to have to export to FTM to get the reports/book publishing to do what I want.
Here is an example of some of the pages I can make in FTM and hope to find in RM someday:
1. Text pages that will allow you to paste in images
2. Cleaner looking family group sheets (fewer lines/boxes)
3. More reports that allow images - such as the pedigree chart having a thumbnail image of each person
4. Something similiar to FTM's smart stories - where you can type your own information but you can import fields/people into the story so that if you update that field in the data it will update in your story.
Sample of some of these:
