I have just treated my self to Roots Magic and am slowly finding my way around.

A simple (hopefully!) question.

When I do a 'person match' in family search from roots magic it only finds one record. However, when I go into family search there are approx 6 records relating to military/marriage/baptisms etc. How do I take a record from family search and export it to roots magic?

Are you referring to FamilySearch WebHints? It should show exactly all the record hints found on their person page under Research Help. If you attach the hint to the person on FamilySearch, then you can move the source citation and facts to RM using the FamilySearch Person Tools. The source citations will not include the media. You would need to download and attach that separately.
