When my database in rm7 was corrupted I gedcommed it and it came back cleaner. Lots of scruff disappeared but my completed temple ordinances dropped from 80k down time to 3k. Likewise the database shrunk considerably but ran much cleaner. This database has been scrubbed at least 3 times starting out as 2 combined paf files from my parents. I bought rm5 then 6 and 7 because of the one button merge feature. At the moment I cannot use rm7 because I am beta testing the latest Mac OS.
I can testify tat RM7 does NOT run under the latest beta from Apple. We also got the blurb that RM8 would be ready for distribution at RootTech in February. Me, I'm a beta tester and would be delighted to test RM8 on the Mac with the latest OS, but I have not been approached.
"Here is exactly how to print PDF's if you haven't done so before in OS X: Open the document, web page, or file you want to print to a PDF. Click the File menu and select “Print”, or just hit Command+P. Look for the “PDF” button in the lower left corner, click on that pull-down menu, and select “Save as PDF”." Lots of references online point to the same method.
Here is a goofie YouTube video (the author needs to hone his typing skills) on how to do large print items on the Mac -
My issue is that the latest Mac OS beta Catalina does not let the 32-bit RM7 run so I cannot test this unless I do a Virtual app with older OS, which I am not going to do. Is PDFwriter a 32-bit app or a 64-bit app? Why do we need to jump through so many hoops to do something that should be simple on the Mac? Why is RootsMagic abdicating the throne to CrossOver to provide RM on the Mac instead of releasing the promised native version RM8?
