Catalina split up itunes and lists a file instead of an app option.
    How do you add a file to an ios app without dropbox? The app is 3 years old so perhaps it no longer works in Catalina.
 
RM7 Mac File to ios app in Catalina  https://support.appl...chl4bd77d3a/mac
 
Connect phone to mac via cable and click the Files tab
 
Open 2 finder tabs: one for the mac file location and the other for the iphone in the sidebar
 
Drag a Copy of your RM7 mac file to the phone tab, pause, then drag over the RM7 phone app, pause again and release. Open the phone RM app, click Files - On Device & choose your file.

Yes, the downside of the new Finder method is that there is no Browse option to find the file to be added - drag and drop is now the only way, as Rooty explained.

The Mac version doesn't support Dropbox and Catalina now doesn't support iTunes. You will need to use File>Copy and save a copy of the database file to your local Dropbox/Apps/RootsMagic folder.

Renee;  see my procedure above. No need for dropbox in Catalina. The trick is to pause while dragging to let each window open. in catalina itunes has been replaced by the finder with an attached phone/pad shown in the sidebar.
