In Topic: GEDCOM default folder not working

16 April 2009 - 12:48 PM

Jaymikel- I don't think that is the case, plenty of programs over ride the Windows system. What is the point of having the Folders list otherwise?

And, I'm growing a little weary of saying this, it worked fine in RM3 sleep.gif

I think its indicative of how limited RM's corrspondence list (Lists/Correspondence Lists) is, that no one has so far even mentioned it. It is my understanding that this was supposed to be the exact tool to help handle such information, i.e. as part of a inter-linked sequence (ToDos, Addresses, Repositories, Correspondence, leading to facts) that could -if developed- be a wonderfully powerful software tool to facilitate genealogical research, but which have become stagnant under-utilised, almost redundant add-ons. None of them have been touched for years and in the case of ToDo have gone backward in RM4 sad.gif

In Topic: Use of Alt Name fact

I use the name given at birth as the individual's name and record any other names as alternate name facts.

If you do this (and I can understand why), which of the 'Name type' would you choose under the circumstances I outlined above?

And I also agree with Arthur's choice!

In Topic: Rm4 Place List

28 March 2009 - 06:35 AM

This thread got a bit hijacked... so to get back on topic

I have found that Online map/Live Map Search will not find ANY of my places (imported from RM3) which have coordinates in them. RM3 does. RM4 will find street addresses (for example on the same street, same address format) if there are a] no coordinates, b] its in Live Map Search's rather limited database (compared to Google).

Hence, without even touching Place details (with its known inadequacies) it seems that RM4 has gone backwards and we are left with less function than RM3?

Anyone else found this?
