Exporting Interview Sources

20 October 2013 - 03:19 PM

I'm a new RootsMagic user coming from Reunion for the Mac (I'd *love* a native Mac version of RM!). I added a source using the "interview, privately held" template and it seems fine inside the program but when I export a gedcom with this source, I get this:

1 TITL , [<Sc>address for private use</sc>], interview by , ; , privately held by Linda Thomas, [<sc>address for private use</sc>], Broadlands, VA 20148, .

but, based on seeing the footnote inside the program, I'd expect this:

1 TITL Angela Thomas, self, [address for private use], Baltimore, MD 21219, interview by Linda Thomas, 2009; transcribed directly into genealogy program, privately held by Linda Thomas, [address for private use], Broadlands, VA 20148, 2009.

I don't see a way to make it export in a useful way. I use the exported gedcom to update an online tree and the source ends up looking terribly wrong on the online version because the entire footnote isn't preserved.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a RM bug or limitation?
