Topics I've Started

7.6.1 freeze

30 August 2019 - 11:53 AM

I open RootsMagic 7.6.1, go to Tools/File Options/Ancestry and click on "Disconnect from Ancestry tree." RootsMagic locks up and I have to use the Task Manager to exit. The task manager reports "RootsMagic not responding." I'm actually not sure whether the Ancestry Tree is actually linked or not.

 

There's been so much trouble with Ancestry that I'm trying to disassociate RootsMagic completely from them although I plan to continue using Ancestry as a research tool.

 

 


Order of items in Media Album

Is there a way to sort or change the order of items in the Media album?


RootsMagic & Linux

13 March 2019 - 01:45 PM

Microsoft’s latest shenanigans show increasing abilities to reduce users’ control over their own machines and increased tendencies to do just that — recent alarming article in Forbes Magazine is making me think of moving away from Windows if the trends continue. Has anyone successfully run RootsMagic in a virtual machine under Linux?

 


Search person list for alternate name tags

17 December 2018 - 08:59 AM

One cannot search the person list to find people who have alternate name tags. I would like to see that ability added, and added so that one can search by the various flavors of the alternate name tag: married, immigrant, AKA, spelling variation, no type designation, etc.

 

I'm aware -- there is a very useful thread in RM7 issues -- that information about alternate name tags can be obtained via the fact list and through /Reports/Lists/Fact list, but the report generated doesn't show the types of the alternate names in the database. Moreover, it's cumbersome to edit the alternate name tags of individuals when they have been generated by the list and or report function.

 

 

 

 


Can't search for Alternate Name tag

16 December 2018 - 09:26 AM

I would like to search for people for whom I've used the Alternate name tag, and preferably to be able to search for each of the the tag's variations: married, nickname, immigration. etc.

 

The find function for the person list doesn't seem to offer such searches. Is there a way to do this that I've missed? If not, the omission is Altername name from the find list would seem to be a programming omission.
