I am trying to generate a modest descendant narrative report in a RootsMagic 7 database. The report is for 4 generations. I have tried on a Mac and the process seems to hang, without generating the report. I moved the database to a PC with 32 GB of RAM and tried to generate the same report. It ran for minutes and finally came back with a popup that says "Out of Memory". In looking in task manager I have plenty of memory available.

 

I have another much larger database, and I can generate a 18 generation descendant narrative report in a few seconds on the PC.

 

What could be the issue here?

Trying running the File>Database Tool after a fresh start of RM and see if that makes a difference.

 

Also check if changing sources to Endnotes makes a difference.

Running File>Database Tools after a fresh start did not make a difference. Changing from "Footnotes printed at the bottom of each page" to "Endnotes printed at the end of the document" generated a report in a reasonable time.

 

Is there an issue with printing footnotes on each page?

The only times Footnotes become an issue is if you have too many citations that need to fit on the page. This can happen when you have a lot of sources, or the text in the Research Notes and Comments cause it to overflow the footnote area.

That makes sense. Thanks
