I cannot figure out how to add a profile/primary/avatar photo to a person in RM 7.5.7.  Under "edit tag" I see no option to check "Primary Photo" for this person (as was the case in the past).  Nothing under "media tag" either.  How do I do this now?

You probably entered the photo into RM as a file instead of as an image. Images can be marked as "Primary Photo" and files cannot. If that's the problem, the only way to fix it is to remove the photo from RM and add it back in as an image.

Make sure the primary photo for the person is added as General Media too. It's the media attached on the Person row.

Selecting a Primary Photo has not changed.

Responding to zhangrau's wonderful picture: the "Primary photo for this person" box and the "Include in scrapbook for this person" box do not appear for media items that were entered into the system as files rather than as images. Since the original poster reported that those boxes did not appear, my conclusion is that the media file was probably entered as a file rather than as an image.
