I know how to install it on my Mac. Been there done that.

 

But how do I use the software? How do I know what kind of files it will open? Are there any instructions?

 

This may be right under my nose, but right now I can't find it! LOL

Like most software, RM7 does not ship with a printed manual. The Help files are a great resource - Try selecting Help > Contents.

 

Also try going to http://rootsmagic.com/

 

In the Learn section you'll find a wide variety of materials.

See rootsmagic store for a $15 300 page printed user guide. Bruce puts this out for each version and it really helps you understand the available features and how to find them.

Are the instructions the same for both Mac and PC? The exact same way to use the software?

Yes. There are some differences in mouse clicks and hot keys, but if you use the menu system, it is the same on both PC and Mac.
