In Topic: Monitor 19" wide wasted space

Thanks for the support. With no other support for this functionality, do I assume that all the other users have antiquated old style narrow monitors???

In Topic: Formatting Names - by gender, by living/deceased

I am disappointed by the lack of response. I expected many users to be pleased with this additional functionality.

In Topic: Partner / Spouse / any gender

How about functionality which does the following:
1) Select partner - to establish a partner relationship between 2 people.
2) Select from a drop down list the many different types of partnerhips - marriage being one of them, Common Law another, and Customary Marraige another.
3) Allow users to add other partnership Types of their choice - RM is used around the world and you (in the USA) cannot guess all the partnership Types.
3) On the screen Label the partnership accordingly.
4) On reports reflect the partnership type by a symbol "+M" (where there is currently just a "+") for a married partnership type

Any other ideas???

In Topic: Partner / Spouse / any gender

Not true, there is no gender limitations.

Thanks appreciated. I could not find anything on this topic in the massive tome of information that came with the release of RM4. Glad that it was in the release. Just a question - that covers marriages of the same gender - what about partnerships. Common Law relationships. Customary Marriages (common in Africa). Hindu Rites. etc. etc. I ask as the word Spouse implies a formal (legal) marriage not a Partnership.

In Topic: Marriage fact in RM4

I note, after searching for "partner" that this topic has been running since Oct 2004 and still Roots Magic does not provide for long term partners (any gender) same gender partnerships, same gender marriages. What's up RM4 should have this standard basic functionality by now. This is very frustrating. If basic functionality is missing how can you claim to be the best? mad.gif
