Hi all. I am new to RM, using on windows 8.1 desktop, large screen.
At times, I will be looking at a common RM screen, say a pedigree view, and neither my mouse nor my keyboard will interact with anything on the screen, including the upper right corner "red X box" for closing the program.
Invariably, this is caused by another screen being open and awaiting a response from me. The problem is that this waiting screen is not visible to me, so I can't act.
I can get out of this problem by going down to the taskbar at the bottom of my windows desktop, right-clicking on the RootsMagic icon, and selecting "close window". Rather than close the program completely, this action brings up the previously hidden screen. I can act on this screen, then proceed with my work without closing RM completely.
My question: although I have found a workaround, am I using the program incorrectly, both to get in this jam in the first place, and in not having a more elegant way to get out of it?
Thanks for any ideas or tips,
