I was just going to update my comment. After using it for a couple of days, I found that it is only on the Source's Detail Text tab for Research Notes and Comments. I apologize for the confusion.


To respond to robertjacobs0, this was not from a gedcom file. I was copying/pasting directly from MS Notepad. Thanks for your response



I don't know if this makes any difference, but on Notepad my font is Tahoma, Regular 12 and Western Script. I know that RM uses Times New Roman, but that shouldn't make any difference. This only started a couple of days ago when I installed the RM update.

It does not seem to matter whether I copy/paste the information or type it manually into the Note Editor section. I get same result, it does not recognize an accented letter in the word. Have never had this problem with RM in the past, and I have been using RM since it first came out after Family Origins.

In Topic: Birth Fact Sentence Template

Dear MAP,


Tom is right. When I originally put that template forward I hadn't realized that it would mess up the RM7 narrative reports. If you look at the rest of the thread in which the template was discussed you'll see what the problems were. I've abandoned the effort for now;  I'm hoping to see the RootsMagic report formats revised in Version 8 when it comes along.




Thanks for your input. It does mean a little more work to set up a narrative and I have to be careful to watch that I don't mess up the profiles that I do not want to change. I still love RootsMagic!!

For that sentence template to work, the event has to be shared with the parents and the father has to be assigned a custom role named "father" and the mother..."mother".

WOW! Thanks. That worked. Simple when you know what you are doing, right?!
