Can I just remind Rootsmagic Development that changing the Master Place for any Place Details within Rootsmagic is a pain no one would want to endure. It's fine where the Place Details may only have been used once but not where is is used numerous times. Very easy in SQL but I would say only a very few users go there.


I also sincerely hope that associations for Place Details come in the not too distant future where one can select a Church or Cemetery and simply produce a list of all associated facts without having to prepare a search query. I doubt anyone wants to jump in and out of Place management to find where Place Details are being used.


Customers should never be frustrated by things they cannot do.

I wholly agree with Vyger, as a relatively newcomer to RM and having compared other programs, most have the facility of selecting a place detail to produce a list of facts/people associated with that place detail and the function to access those facts/people directly
