In Topic: Release Date for RM8

07 January 2020 - 02:16 PM

I have been using FamilyAtlas for mapping and  find the maps to be wanting but the ability to add places (waypoints) to my map allow me to accurately map a move of a person across large distances.


I have a family that I am mapping in their move west in 1850 and then return home in 1863. The added way points allow me to adjust the path to accommodate where roads etc. would have been in say 1850-1865.


It doesn't look like the RM8 mapping will provide this capability but I can hope that Family Atlas maps are improved at some point.

Thanks Renee. There had been some talk/rumor that PH3 and Family Atlas may be incorporated into RM. Thanks for the update.

I tried your fix and it appears to work. Thank you.


Renee I don't know if this is an issue with rootsmagic or just my version of Firefox.



In Topic: RM7 website

I'm sorry I don't have very accurate time frames but about 1.5 years ago I did successfully run this on my tablet running android. The problem appears to be at least similar to my problem running this on my windows machines. The common thread I think is the browser. I am using Firefox on my tablet as well as on my windows machines. All exhibit the lack of ability to run javascript.


All versions of browsers have been checked to see if javascript.enabled is true and they are so that should not be an issue. Perhaps some other software like Norton is intervening on my behalf but they usually announce that they have done something so I am not hopeful on that front.


My next step is to try it on a PC with windows 10 to see if that clears up the issue.


For the time being I will address the issue of research trips some other way. I can have access to a windows laptop and can run RM TO GO that might solve the issue of access to data but not the issue of a website from RM.


Now I am very curious to find out just what has changed even if I have workarounds.



In Topic: Add editor to the description line for a fact

13 October 2019 - 10:41 AM

I just ran a test and it is correct that RM on re-import the description field is going into the note and it is also truncated. I thought I had tested that but it looks like the long desc field is not put back into the description field.


Legacyfamilytree 8 does put the extended data into the description field.  Familytreemaker 2014 also retains the full description in the description field.
