Marriage sentence upgrade

21 November 2014 - 04:26 PM

It is my practice always to use the following marriage sentence in narrative reports:
John Doe married Susie Q, daughter of Noadiah Q and Hermione R on.....in.....etc,
and the opposite,
Susie Q married John Doe, son of Lafe Doe and Sarah Buck on.....in........etc.
Without this feature the marriage sentences appear totally naked and leave out a ton of valuable information.

In The Master Genealogist, the all-purpose sentence is designed as: [P] married [PO] <[PARO]> <[D]> <[L]> <[A]>
Tom Holden has kindly provided an elegant way to produce a similar sentence in RootsMagic, but unfortunately my lack of skill prevented me from putting his method into practice. :(

My wish is for a simple way to write this sentence, the lack of which is a deal-breaker for me with RM.

Many thanks, Elizabeth Tilton

Place pop-up

04 November 2014 - 09:20 AM

Can someone please tell me how I can disable permanently the message which pops up frequently to ask if I want to change my place entries to something else.

For example, all my US place entries as imported from TMG are like Eugene, Lane County, Oregon, and not Eugene, Lane, Oregon. I never want to change this format so I do not need to be continually reminded.

Thanks for your assistance. Always hopeful,

Marriage sentence

01 November 2014 - 05:50 PM

Has anyone created a marriage sentence to share which reads something like:
Susie Q Smith married John Joseph Doe, son of James Josiah Doe and Nancy Lee Brown, on 20 Feb 2010 in Santa Barbara, California.
and the reverse, Groom married Bride, daughter of .........

Sorry to be such a klutz but I don't know how to do this. Without it I am dead in the water for narrative reports. :(

Thanks much from Elizabeth

Shared facts

31 October 2014 - 03:05 PM

Another newbie question:
When I attempt to add a new shared Miscellaneous fact in RootsMagic, the name of the person with whom it is shared (selected from the database) is displayed only on the edit screen of [Principal2]. The place is shown, but no name.
I have checked the box for "share fact" and selected the name from the database.
Is it not the intention to show the names connected with shared facts on the edit screens of both principals? Or am I not explaining this understandably?
Any ideas of what am I doing incorrectly? or a workaround?
Many thanks for your help.

Question from a newbie:

How can I set the history search box not to clear automatically when I close the program?

Many thanks for your assistance.
