In Topic: Size limitations on My.RootsMagic websites?

Today, 02:31 PM

I am pretty certain the current limit is 200 MB but await an up to date confirmation from Renee.

I don't think the number of websites is restricted other than by storage capacity. And remember that the image files you upload consume storage.

In Topic: Including Repository info in the Bibliography

Yesterday, 09:20 AM

It really is unfortunate and frustrating that there is no Source Template variable that can retrieve data from the Repository List. Having to put it manually into every new Master Source is just so 'typewriter'.

In Topic: Change fact type

GEDCOM and RM have the Adult Baptism fact type. The demarcation between adult and non-adult is not an absolute but might be construed to be 16 to 21. That leaves Baptism covering the range from 0 to 16-21 and Adult Baptism the rest. Christening is defined as an infant baptism and, therefore, is the one logically selected to provide the best, most accurate automated substitution for the birth date in the absence of the Birth event.

In Topic: Problem Solved - How to Copy Facts in RM

You might well ask RootsMagic to include an option when sharing a fact whether the Principal's Note is to be copied to the selected sharer(s). Some users may well want the identical note; others might want it as the basis for customisation for each sharer and others might want it left empty or put something in that is entirely different. RootsMagic does support all those outcomes but doesn't make it convenient to achieve them all. I don't think a batch splitter utility can assume what the user wants. It could be revised to copy the Principal's Note to the Sharer's split event Note in the absence of a Sharer's Note but would that upset the applecart for some users or some sharers.


BTW, I try not to use the "sharer"-"sharee" distinction any more since the latter is not a dictionary word. I prefer "Principal" and "sharer".
