New version has a bunch of problems

16 December 2010 - 03:28 AM

Does anyone have the previous version from the one released yesterday that I could somehow get?

I ALWAYS install the new versions in a different library until I am sure they work. This, of all times, I did not do that. I can't edit anything without it dropping it. I was updating a record for which I only had a name, but I had recently obtained the death certificate. I entered the birth, death, burial and it dropped all but the last one. I then went back and entered the death date and place and thought that it took it. When I went to enter the birth date and place it dropped the death date place. Saved the record hoping I could get around it that way. Entered the death date info again and save it. Brought up the record and it had dropped some burial information that I had entered.

WHAT IS GOING ON!!!! Why doesn't RootsMagic put on its website that there are problems with the new release and to put off installing it until it is fixed AND IN ADDITION OFFERING A SOLUTION FOR THOSE THAT HAD ALREADY STUPIDLY REPLACED THE OLDER VERSION BY OFFERING THEM A COPY OF THE PREVIOUS VERSION UNTIL THE NEW ONE IS FIXED!!!!!

Boy, it would sure be nice if there was a sex indicator that would be carried through to ALL views of an individual. I am trying to match my unmatched to NFS. In some cases I may have only the last name of the spouse and only an initial for the given name of the other spouse. I have to exit the screen and go back to find out which one is the male and which one is the female. FRUSTRATING.

Comparison/RootsMagic to nFS

This may already be on the wish list, but I couldn't find it.

It sure would be nice if there was a way when you have the side by side comparison of an individual in your file to the linked person on nFS, that it would show in the case of more than one spouse, which marriage and associated sealing date went with which spouse, and which children were connected to which spouse. I generally copy the spouses over and then go to that spouse and bring them up. But I run into a problem when both spouses have more than one spouse. Is this making sense?

Moving media library

Is there a way to move my pictures to another library and not have to relink all the pictures I now have for my file? Also, in the future I may want to split my file into a husband and wife line so that it will be more manageable and also easier to create gedcoms to send to the two sides of the family. It would be nice if I could split the pictures without having to relink everything, but I think under the present system, that would be impossible.

Divorce info

I would like to see (div) displayed to the right of the marriage date if the couple is now divorced (and a divorce record has been created for them)
