Topics I've Started

Scarpbook not including photos from events

23 October 2015 - 05:30 AM

Well, the title of the thread says it all.

I have the necessary box ticked in the dialogue box before hitting 'Generate Report' but I do not get any pictures relating to marriage, residence, etc., just those allotted to the person.


What am I not doing?

This is driving me crackers!

Creating a shareable CD - pictures?

06 October 2015 - 10:05 AM

Hi all

I am able to use RM6 on W10 to create shareable discs with no major problems. The process whirrs away quite happily, presenting no error messages or suchlike and then ejects the discs upon completion.

However, when I then test said disc, not all of the pictures 'show up'.

They ARE there because I can see little picture icons and if I then double-click on them they do appear.

But surely this isn't what is meant to happen?

Surely all photos/pictures should be visible as I open up each person's details and photograph sources, yes?

Clicking on the Media Gallery presents the same problem - row upon row of picture icons, but no pictures unless I double-click each one and then it reverts to the icon once I close it.


I should say at this point that it's not EVERY picture that fails like these, as a few do appear every time.


I find this frustrating as I am passing these discs out to family and have to explain all the time that the pictures ARE there, but need to be 'encouraged' to appear.​

WebSearch option not working properly

06 October 2015 - 09:54 AM

This used to work quite happily, but since I've moved to Windows 10 it seems to have packed up!

I can click on the button for websearch, but the web-browser pane is always empty, no matter which search engine I use.

The little red 'progress' bar whizzes along at bottom right, but the pane remains blank.


What do I need to do, please?

Adding a custom search provider

05 May 2015 - 03:12 AM

... specifically the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (http://www.cwgc.org/)

I've followed the steps using the info in the book 'Getting the Most Out of RM6) and the on-screen help as you do it, but whenever I then add the results page to the list of custom search providers that's the only search results it ever throws up no matter which person I am using in my database.


What am I doing wrong?

Has anyone else managed to add this or other providers?

Scrapbook issues

30 April 2015 - 07:25 AM

Hi all

I've been struggling with this for a while now and, having received a copy of the RM6 book by Bruce Buzbee this morning, I'm still none the wiser!

How can I get the scrapbook to include ALL of the photos that I have saved to a person, including those for things attached to events (e.g. wedding) and places (homes)?

And while I'm on, how do I get the scrapbook to produce the photos chronologically? Is it because I have used 'circa' and sometimes the month before the actual year?
