Printing Event Photos and Captions

11 September 2017 - 01:57 PM

In looking at some reports, it seems RM only prints the primary photo for a person.  I also have primary photos tagged for the Death event (Obituary) and the Burial event (tombstone).  Is there a way to have all primary photos printed in a narrative or family group sheet?


Also, is there a way to add a caption to a photo in RM?  RM displays the caption if it exists in the photo's IPTC metadata (description), but I have been unable to find where I can add a caption if it doesn't already exist.

Can you geocode down to the Place Details

Is one limited in the full RootsMagic to geocoding at the Place (City, County, State, etc.) level?  Or can one geocode down to the Place Details (address) level.  Google maps provides the ability to get the coordinates down to the address level (or cemetery, etc.), can these coordinates be inserted into RM overriding the city coordinates?

Media not showing using Parallels

14 May 2017 - 12:13 PM

Just downloaded RM Essentials on Windows 10 running in Parallels on Mac.  I am choosing to run RM in windows rather than the Mac version.  Created GEDCOM from Reunion and imported into RM without any obvious issues.  However, the media are not showing.  I set the Tools - Program Options - Folders dialog and located my media folder via the Select Folder dialog next to the "Multimedia Files" entry, pointing to the folder on the Mac.


However if I try to view the media item, I get the "RootsMagic can't find this media item:" dialog, displaying the path in the format:


"\~/Pictures/Genealogy Images/Personsname.jpg"


What should I do to be able to view the images.
