Source Text field {}

05 August 2014 - 05:00 AM

I very much like the convenience afforded by the superior integration of RootsMagic with FamilySearch FamilyTree. 

 

Is there a way to post a source from RootsMagic to FSFT without the information the Source Text field in curly brackets being posted?

 

thx  :)


Queries and Color-Coding

24 March 2014 - 12:54 PM

I very much like RootsMagic and how I can use named groups, select people by data fields, custom reports, and color-coding to organize and clarify my research.

3) Save a Search for People to Include by datafields -- not the results of the search, but the search itself. After carefully selecting the fields and qualifiers to turn up the desired recordset, it would be nice if I could save the query for when I use it, or a slight variation, again, and again, and again. There should be opportunity to edit the saved search.



4) Save a Select People Sequence. Groups are not dynamic in RootsMagic, and I am Very okay with that. The Select people window is very powerful for creating a list of people. It would be nice if macros for selecting a list of people could be created. This way, after people have been created and edited, an updated list could be easily created.

5) Save a Color Scheme. Similar to above, but it is a series of colors applied to different lists of people.

Color Coding Snapshot

2.) Save a snapshot of the color-coding. Allow to name, delete, and restore the color-coding snapshot.

Since I like to use color coding for more than one type of view for the data, it would be nice if I could save a Snapshot of the color-coding. Yes, I can make a copy of the database and apply different color-coding to that database, but I would not want to make changes I wish to save in the duplicate database.

Quick add (and maybe delete) people from named groups

24 March 2014 - 12:24 PM

I very much like RootsMagic and how I can use named groups, select people by data fields, custom reports, and color-coding to organize and clarify my research.

Wish Wish Wish ideas

1.) Make it quicker to add (and, perhaps, delete) a person to a named group.
a) Drag people from the Navagation View to the group displayed in the sidebar when a group is displayed in the sidebar (it would also be nice if people could also be deleted directly from the group sidebar.) Maybe have on the group sidebar the +, -, and Go buttons found on the bookmarks sidebar.
B) Add an item: “Groups>” to the pop-up shortcut menu for the people in the navigation views. The expanded menu could show the list of user-defined groups, and clicking on the group would add the person to the group. It would be even niftier if the expanded menu would indicate with a + or - whether the person could be added to or deleted from the group.
c) Hot-key to pull up a window with a list of named groups and allow the highlighted person to be added to the group. Again, it would be even niftier if the list indicated whether a person could be either added to or deleted from a group.
