In Topic: Annoying Offline Warning

I suspect that RM does not like it when Windows 10 is put into hibernation after having done a TreeShare and just remembered that it was logged in.

 

I have a number of problems with Windows 10 hibernation and I do everything I can to avoid it happening. I certainly wouldn't deliberately put or allow Windows 10 into hibernation with RM running. When my computer is at home, it's always awake. When I take it out somewhere (as to the library), I do a shutdown at home and a full reboot wherever I am using the computer outside the home. Then before going home, I do a shutdown wherever I am and a full reboot after I get back home.

RM7 is a 32 bit program. Windows still runs 32 bit programs just fine.

I don't have a solution. If RM supported a group filter on a descendants chart, that would come close. You could export such a group to an empty database to generate it but then you can't integrate it in RM Publisher. You'd have to insert it in Word.

 

Expanding on Tom's suggestion. Suppose you made a copy of your database, where the copy would be deleted after the reporting is done. Then in the copy of your database, make the group as Tom suggests and drag and drop the group into an empty database then back into the copy of the database. You would have duplicate copies of many of your people and you would have to be very careful which of duplicate people you would report on. But getting both the original people and the copies into the same database would allow you to integrate all your reporting with Publisher. This sounds like a convoluted mess and it actually is a convoluted mess. But it's the only way I can think of to do the project with Publisher.

RM's Find Everywhere feature does not really find everywhere - far from it. But it will search in source title lines. You might try it via Search>Find Everywhere. I think it will find the strings you are looking for, but it may or may not do exactly what you need. You will use have to play with it to see how useful it is to you.

 

What's really needed is proper filtering of the source title lines within the source list itself. From previews of RM8, it appears that RM8 may have this needed feature, but it's hard to tell for sure from the previews.

If you are going to Lists>Source List you are only seeing the Master Source portion. The Citation Details are only seen in the Citation Manager when looking on the general or fact level for the individual. The Source List report can include the Citation details and who is using them. 

 

Correct. The source details do not show up if all you do is Lists>Sources. The Source Details do show up (or can be selected as an option) after you click on the Print button.
