Can auto-complete suggestions be edited?

27 November 2013 - 08:42 PM

Over the years, I have improved my place naming habits. I would like to remove unwanted auto-complete entries, leaving only my current naming standard.
Any help appreciated!

Backing up in Rootsmagic6

17 November 2013 - 04:46 PM

I've used Rootsmagic 4 for many years, and recently upgraded to Rootsmagic 6.
I converted my RM4 file and began to work, backing up whenever I closed the program. When I opened RM6 today, it was blank, as was file>open recent. I searched for, and found my first RM6 backup in the location I had set, but it once again asked for me to convert the file.
RM4 always saved my work as I went and I'm flummoxed as to why RM6 isn't updating the backup file each time I click "back up database" and close the program. I've lost hours of work and am afraid to do more until I resolve the problem.
I've searched my for .rmgc & .rmgb files and by the file name, but there's only one file with the new RM6 icon, and it's the first one.
My last system restore point is older than the newest database.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

"Free" Updates to older versions

09 November 2013 - 06:43 AM

I tried to update to an older version, as offered "free" here:
http://www.rootsmagi...tes/RootsMagic/
However, when I couldn't provide a version 5 registration number, it automatically installed the "Essentials" version, which has fewer features than my version 4.
Can anyone help me with the full install of an older version?
Otherwise, I will just reinstall from my version 4 disk.
Thanks so much!
