Topics I've Started

Media catagories

31 December 2018 - 08:53 PM

I would like to be able to tag media with categories similarly as with most digital photo programs.  To be able to create categorizes such as Census, Birth Certificate, Photo, etc, check box them, and then to be able to query and run reports based on those tags  would be be very useful.

Update and enhance Charting

31 December 2018 - 08:48 PM

I believe RM is a very solid data management program with easy data entry and expansive event and source tracking capabilities.  That is why it is my go-to program for research. 


The area where it falls a bit short is in sharing research through charting and reporting.  For example, there is not currently any pdf output option in RM Chart and no (non-paternal) direct line reports.


If I was developing RM I would be reading the software reviews out there which tend to echo my position.

Pictures degraded on Wall Chart

29 December 2018 - 10:48 AM

I really appreciate RM's wall charting power, allowing for the great control over designing wall charts.  But for some reason the jpg files I have linked to my database are seriously degraded when I try to include them in the chart. RM apparently converts them to bmp's which I assume is RM's preferred format, but they don't look anything like the originals.  They are marred with lines and pixelated patches.  Any thoughts on what might be going on or how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.
