Topics I've Started

GEDCOM : Occupation / Death Description

05 December 2011 - 10:58 AM

In RM5, it's allowed to enter a very long Occupation-Description and Death-Description.

When they are exported to GEDCOM (OCCU and CAUS), they are exported in one long line and not split up with continuation lines (CONC).

When this is not supported by the GEDCOM-specs for these OCCU and CAUS, RM5 should only allow to enter the maximum number of characters.

BTW, when re-imported into RM5, everything beyond position 80 of the GEDCOM-line is truncated, as it should be, but with the CONC the whole description would have been re-imported (again, when GEDCOM-specs allow this).

Report Title

05 December 2011 - 08:56 AM

Some of the reports have the possibility to modify the Title others don't.
But they all use the [Title] tag in the header.

It seems that tags like [Person] or <Person> don't work anymore (ex : in the Individual Summary)

What are the possible tags (other than the selectable Date, Page, Title, ...) in RM5 ?

Publisher Book / Lists

05 December 2011 - 07:59 AM

Maybe I am overlooking something, but I can't find a way to include some of the Lists into a book. They (ex: the LDS Ordinance List) just aren't there for selection from within the publisher (book).

Same applies to special reports I made.

Because several people are working on the same Tree, I intented to make an Ongoing Work Book, with all kind of dedicated reportings.
Would avoid to have to do this manually every time, to have all of them neatly together with the index at the end.

FamilyGroupSheets - Slow Slow Slow

04 December 2011 - 04:34 AM

When I want to generate all Family Group Sheets for my database, around 534 Sheets, this isn't workeable.

It's slow-slow-slow, takes hours to accomplish the "generate report" ! Yesterday, after two hours of waiting and being at 50%, I went sleeping leaving it running overnight, meaning I don't know "how many" hours it took finally. To be clear, this ain't a one-timer, it's structural - repeatable, and PC performance/memory can't be involved.

It's a performance issue, which is degrading while sheets are processed, processing time per sheet increases(based upon the counter shown).

It's certainly not related to the Publisher as generating the Individual Summaries (with highest level of detail) for the whole database is completed within minutes, which is good.

Neither is it related to the creation of the Name/Place indexes. Having them deselected doesn't impact noticeable;

As a previous post of mine got removed, at risk of being removed too : I want to give an indication : in FTM2006 the same Family Group Sheets (imported from RM5 via GEDCOM) with the same level of detail take minutes (10-15?). I can't compare with RM3 or RM4.

As being not workeable, I really hope there will be looked into this,and that we will not have to wait till next release.

FamilyGroupSheets - Sorting Problem

04 December 2011 - 03:42 AM

When generating all Family Group Sheets (or sheets for a selection of the Family Tree) the sheets are sorted according the sorting criteria specified .... except one sheet, which comes on page one, completely out of order.

It appears to be the sheet corresponding to the person selected in the Pedigree.

This seems a bug to me, the sorting criteria should be in the lead when the sheets are generated.
