In Topic: Long place names

21 November 2020 - 07:36 PM

The places of birth and death occupy considerable length, especially if I insist on adding the word "County" for disambiguation and call the country United States of America. This means the end of the line gets pushed off the screen, to the right and I cannot reach the button for FamilySearch. How about allowing these fields to be split 


Minneapolis, Hennepin County,

    Minnesota, United States of America


to occupy less width.

Why not just increase the width of the right part of the screen by shifting the join to the left.

In Topic: Possible bug in opening edit screen

1. Set the left hand column to "Index"

2. Select the "People" view on the main screen and choose a named group to display. Click on any member of the group.

3. Return to the index and double-click on any person who is NOT part of the named group.


The edit screen which opens is not the person on whom you double-clicked but the person worked on in the named group.


I think this is a bug; one should be able to open the edit screen of the person selected from the index.

Not a problem, as it worked for me. When I did that the persons edit screen opened.

No. RootsMagic does not assign sounds to actions and thusly has no settings for such.

Thanks for the reply

That would be part of the Windows theme you have selected. You can do into your settings and change it. 

But is there just a way to turn it off in RM not all other Windows based sounds in other places

In Topic: Search>Family List Can Order Multiple Spouses Incorrectly

What are all the main uses for the screen ......Search> Family list?

I can see where duplicate entries can be found, then merged.
