Extra space when using maiden name in endnotes

29 March 2015 - 08:17 AM

In a source/citation field field which is defined as a Name field, if a woman's maiden name is included in parentheses, RM is adding an extra space in the associated endnote before the parentheses.


Sarah _(Smith) Jones, History of York County . . .


There is an extra space where I've placed an underline.



File compare not matching

21 March 2015 - 06:22 AM

I'm not having much success with the file compare feature.


Why do I get 0% match on these entries in the two files I'm comparing?  Because of that, the two don't line up next to each other in file compare so I can't copy facts from one file to another. 


                  File 1                                                   File 2

Person      Herman Hedberg                    Herman August Hedberg

Name        Herman Hedberg                    Herman August Hedberg

                                                                 August Herman Hedberg (Alt Name fact)

Birth          27 Mar 1882 Sweden              27 Mar 1882 Sweden

Father       Andrew Hedberg                     Andrew Hedberg

Mother      Emma Stromberg                    Emma Stromberg


File 2 has some additional facts for this person that File 1 doesn't such as Naturalization, Immigration, Occupation, Residence.  They do not have the same RIN.


I would expect some % greater than zero.




Endnote numbers underlined

03 January 2015 - 08:38 AM

Whenever I create a report with the endnotes, the endnote numbers within a report are underlined.  (Just within the report body, not in the endnotes themselves at the end of the report.)


Susan Smith was born 10 August 1900. 12


(Actually, the underline appears further below the number, in line with the period.)


This happens in all reports and regardless of font used.


It does not happen with footnotes.


This occurs in RM7 and it occurred later in RM6 but not initially when RM6 was released.


Any ideas?




Documenting Parent-Child Relationship

29 November 2014 - 06:38 AM

Does anyone have a good method for documenting parent-child relationships?   That is, adding source citations to specifically document who were the children of a set of parents.   I suppose that's what our whole database is about.   But, for example, I wish I could add citations to the sentence that RM automatically generates in a narrative report:  "Raymond Rogers and Anna Martin had the following children:"   To that sentence I would cite possibly a birth record, a parent's obituary, and a child's obituary if those contained supporting information.


Or, do you just add the parent's obit to their death fact (which I would do anyway), the child's birth record to their birth fact, etc., and leave it at that?






Drag and Drop is duplicating Sources

05 July 2014 - 06:03 AM

Each instance that I drag and drop a person from one database to another, a duplicate Master Source is created.  So if I drag and drop five people, one at a time, and they each source the 1850 US Census, then five "1850 US Census" are in my Master Source list, all identical.
