I only noticed recently that the Standardized PlaceName and Abbreviated PlaceName data gets dropped on Gedcom transfer even with RM Specifics checked.


This is RM Specific data which should be protected so I believe this is a bug. Rootsmagic users who have painstakingly entered such data to improve their database will unwittingly lose all that hard work on Drag&Drop or Gedcom transfer when they are maybe only trying to solve some other database problem.


I will be interested to hear the comment of Rootsmagic but I can hardly see this as "operating as designed" without ever warning users of the data loss?

Customers should never be frustrated by things they cannot do - demand better
