I have been wanting the feature of printing images inline in narrative reports in RM for years, all the way back to the Family Origins days in the 1990's. We don't know yet if it will be in RM8.
My canary in the coal mine for this feature in RM8 is whether I can link an an image of a headstone to a burial fact and have it print in a narrative report. I tried that in Family Origins and I was deeply disappointed that it didn't work. I have remained disappointed ever since. But hope springs eternal. And if ever it works for a burial fact, it will probably work for other fact types as well.
If RM8 does include this feature, it is likely to create a problem for me - curiously enough. The reason is that I have adopted GedSite to publish my data on the Web and I link all kinds of images to all kinds of facts in RM. Gedsite displays them just fine, using RM as the data source. The problem is that when I say all kinds of images, I mean all kinds of images. I link a photo of a headstone to a burial fact and it shows up just fine in GedSite and RM ignores it in narrative reports. I wish RM would print it, but no harm,no foul. But I also link images of census pages to census facts. These show up just fine in GedSite and don't print in RM. The problem is that on web pages, GedSite shows a "large thumbnail" which can expand into the full census image and it works just fine. But I can't picture any way to print full census pages inline in printed narrative reports that would actually make sense and be legible. So if RM8 does support the printing of fact images in narrative reports, I will have to figure out how to print them for burial facts and not for census facts, and similarly for many other fact types.
