Topics I've Started

Dropped spaces

15 December 2011 - 08:40 AM

I have a detailed LibreOffice document of the military diaries leading up to the death of a relative in WW 1, and wished to copy/paste some details into a 'death note'. However, many of the spaces between words were removed during the paste/copy procedure. The original certainly contained the spaces, confirmed by successfully doing the same copy/paste to Microsoft WordPad. The original also had very useful formatting which unfortunately was not copied across. It would be very useful to copy formatting, or at least be able to use tabs in the notes.

Window Positions

This may sound trivial, but for me the use of Roots Magic would be smoother if some of the window parameters, such as position and size for windows like 'Citation Manager' and 'Edit Person' could be saved when those windows are closed. At the moment these windows always seem to open in the least convenient place and on top of each other. If the position could be saved to the registry, then it would save a lot of windows re-setting and moving.


My media gallery now contains many thousands of entries. Splitting the entries into alpabetical groups, with a row of buttons A-Z across the window, say adjacent to the Search text window, would make it so much easier to get to the desired media. Of course this would only work for those of us who use the person name and birth date for the file name.
