symbol next to name on the name index

I've just been doing some merging of duplicate people & noticed a small blue rectangular icon to the left of a person's name on the name index. What is this?


Folders in media window

I've just added my grandfathers military record to his page. It consists of maybe 8 pages (images) It looks so messy so wouldn't it be nice to be able to add a folder & drag & drop all the images into one neat folder?


How to delete unwanted files on RM To-Go

28 February 2012 - 10:16 AM

The hard drive on my PC died on me recently. I managed to retrieve all of 'My Documents' & transfered this file onto my lap top. Included in the file would have been some back-up RM files. These must have found their way onto 'To Go'. As a result I now have unwanted files on the To Go window ( I had backed-up rmgc files by labeling them (2)) it's these files I want to delete from 'To Go'. How to I go about it? Should I delete them from the main file on 'My Documents?'


Folder properties-modified-accessed

This is such a small 'wish' that I hope it doesn't get lost in all this 'techie' stuff :rolleyes:
When checking folders on the main data base & 'To Go', I noticed that even when you just open a file to check something it will class this as file being 'modified' & give a date & time. Can't the clever people at RM make it so that ONLY when data is modified in some form it's documented?


Merging 2 files

09 February 2012 - 10:32 AM

How I get myself into these messes I shall never know :(
Problem. I've just discovered that I have 2 files on my database with similar file names. Smith File 1.rmgc & Smith.rmgc. Today I've been adding data to one, closing down (saving data) then coming back to work on it some more BUT I'm not sure which one I continued on. I can see from the 'transfer file' window on Rootsmagic To Go the file that was modified today. Bottom line, is there anyway I can merge the 2 files as I'm worried I might lose data if I delete the 'unwanted' file?
