Topics I've Started

plain text Family Group Sheet

28 August 2010 - 11:26 AM

I have found a useful site which collects Family Group Sheets, organized by states.
They require a plain text format. I was disappointed that RM4 did not allow me to do such a report.

The desired format:

Using RM4 on Multiple Computers

12 April 2010 - 09:21 AM

I am a Snowbird, using 3 computers:
-Desktop up North
-Desktop in Florida
-My wife's notebook, when on road.

I am aware of RM To-Go, but chose not to use it, mainly because I wanted access to Media Files on each computer. INSTEAD, I have RM4 installed on a SanDisk 16 gig removable drive. I have elected to let the installed RM4 on the removable drive to be my MAIN working drive with both program and data. I then back up my data to each of the 3 computers.

This has worked satisfactorily. I have to live with each computer giving my removable drive a different drive letter name and simply using Tools/Program Options/folders to tell RM4 where to find the files.

HOWEVER, in a recent RM4 update, there was a Place Details database module which would not install on my removable drive.

I would like to hear from others who might have similar set up issues, or read comments about my set up decisions.
