What do you mean?

I'm not an expert with either RM or GEDCOM but the GEDCOM file that RM exports must comply with the GEDCOM standard and general practice else it would not be suitable as an interchange file. RM itself allows you to be very selective about the types of data you export. I believe that Rich Text formatting (i.e. bold, underline, italics, font type and size) is lost when exporting to GEDCOM because the standard does not support it(?).
