In Topic: High Sierra

BTW, installing RootsMagic on a Flash drive instead of the Apple FileSystem internal SSD also seems to work around this issue

I just did this with Mac OS High Sierra Beta. Seems to work very well. I had wiped all .plists. RM7 was not playing nice and not opening my datafile completely so I could make changes from FamilySearch. After removing the .plists, the message that RM7 was not optimized for High Sierra  and to contact the application provider popped up. I was not going to change the file format on the Solid State Drive in my McBook Pro, so I saw this workaround.


Love it! Thanks, pbooth99.

Finally got it to get past my database hangup/lockup/deep freeze this morning with FamilySearch by unflagging all Web tools in RootsMagic7. Mac OS High Sierra Beta.


Tools > File Options > Web Hints > Turn off "Enable WebHints" after unflagging each individual one. Wow, what a difference!

In Topic: RM7 Won't Start

I was on the bottle version for the last 14 days because RM would not work at all with the previous beta version of Mac OS. As of this moment it works now. I'm excited! But the glitches are still very much alive in the Mac version of RootsMagic 7. I was told by support that version 8 will be the full-blown Mac native version. I am on pins and needles. We've patiently waited for so long for that version to surface.

In Topic: Multiple temple ordinances

24 August 2017 - 10:58 PM

In RootMagic I have multiple entries for same temple ordinances for many files with the same dates. I think what happened is due to multiple instances of temple ordinances completed, instead of removing the later dates, all dates moved to duplicate the earliest instance and did not get cleared. Is that a correct assumption? If so, can a logic path be generated to clean up those "extra" instances in RootsMagic?

TreeShare form Ancestry works fine with RM7.5.2 for the Mac. Letting it run the first time to sync will try your patience, but just let it run overnight and a day...
