Topics I've Started

Tutorial Videos and files

18 July 2009 - 05:03 AM

I am using RootsMagic for the first time and I see that there are some video tutorials for V4 on Youtube,
are there plans to add any to the Rootsmagic web-site so that they are in one place.

I have imported a Gedcom file from my old software and I am now adding the media etc for one family at a time.
Would like to know how the scrapbook works and report writing so that I can see how the entered details look on a printed page. I want to get them to look consistent.

Thanks, a good software package which will need investigating further.


Saving the data

18 July 2009 - 04:07 AM

A little niggle is that when I entered all my source/notes/media information (to one individual) all in one session it seemed that only some of it had been saved.
I think that closing the current window (Notes) that I was working on and opening another (Sources) and then the (Media) window caused all the text within the (Notes) window and (Sources) window to be lost. I only had the last window's information saved.

I now save these individually and close ALL windows to get back to my starting person before selecting a new button (Notes), (Sources), (Media)

I am new to Roots Magic so it could be finger trouble at my end but I was wondering if anyone else has had this kind of problem.
