At least with a FTM one actually has proper Mac software that works.
Frankly; I’m doing a lot of my work “old school”.
I use spreadsheets and research logs etc.
I don’t think RM knows how bad their current inaction is for their image.

Macbook Pro here. When the new wrapper for RM7 came out, I bit the bullet. Uninstalled RM7, upgraded to Catalina, re-installed RM7 with the 64-bit wrapper. So far, all is working as it was before with one exception. Less lockups thus forcing me to pull the force-shutdown trigger.


I came from a Windows world in my work life, moved to Linux (loved the CLI and Vi). At a point, I decided to close the Windows for good so no Windows products in our house and I'm retired so no Work-Windows. I'm saying this because, IMO, RM7 is very Windows-ee in operation and always leaves bad tastes for me just working in it . I've seen all the RM8 sneak-peaks and I have to say, I REALLY am looking forward to it. The various operations seem intuitive and compares with the way my Mac operates.


Just wish RM would get with it. Nudge...nudge...nudge  :D
