In Topic: Going back to Win version

If you have installed Parallels and then the Windows version of RootsMagic on your Mac, use File>Open on your current .rmgc database file, or use File>Restore if you have the .rmgb backup.  I do believe you need to move the files over to your Windows side.


Thanks, Renee.  File>Open didn't work, but File>Restore did.  I also had to relink my media files, but that didn't take long.  I run Parallels in Coherence mode, so I didn't need to move any files.  At least, I assume Coherence is the reason I didn't have to.

I'm afraid I don't have an answer to your question - only two questions!  I am using 7.0.1 which I believe is a Windows version using crossover.  I have been trying to find a native Mac version, but what appears to be one shown on the Rootsweb download site merely gives me a repeat 7.0.1.  I would be asking 'how did you stumble across the version you are using?, but now am asking' why do you want to move back again to crossover?'

I'm using the Crossover version.  There isn't a native Mac version yet.  The reasons I want to move back to the regular Windows version are: 1.  No upload to Dropbox to update the app on my iPad  2. It's noticeably slower than just running the Windows version under Parallels  3. Parts of the display are too hard to read.  I've changed all I could in the display options, but that doesn't affect the font size in the menus or Edit Person screen, for example.

Thank you, Tom, for the SQLite statement.

In a small GEDCOM, that's certainly doable.  And that's all I'm doing for WikiTree, 100 or 200 people at a time. Of course, I'll have to be really careful not to mess up the file otherwise.

Thanks, Tom.  So it's a citation by citation label.  Well, at least it only shows up in Gedcom.  I guess I'll just delete it when it shows up on WikiTree, and fix it in my database when I'm working on someone and notice it.  I can't face going through hundreds of citations looking for it.  Or is this something I can fix in SQL?
