I so want RootsMagic to work on my Mac. For years I have been running Windows on my Mac for no other reason than to use RootsMagic, but I can no longer update my Mac operating system without upgrading ($$$) the software that runs Windows. I'm stuck on Sierra. So, I really, really, want it to work. But it doesn't.

 

I'm using RootsMagic 6 on Sierra. I like to copy and paste notes from the Internet (maybe an obituary, for example). After selecting the text, I right click and choose Copy. I go into my RM file and do the same, choosing Paste. Nothing. If I open RM in Windows, it works perfectly.

 

Does anyone else have this problem? I am very hesitant to cut the cord to Windows, yet would so love to be able to do that.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Go to Tools>Program Options>General and check the box "Use plain text when pasting to notes" and it should work.
