In Topic: Mapping not working

Being able to support commas in geocoding is on the enhancement request list. The reason is due of the development schedule. 


Being a little cynical, this could be translated by:


“You already paid for the software. Our development schedule focus on attracting new potential paying customers with catching slogans like integration with this or that competing company. So if you survived with this issue for so many years, you can live with it the rest of your life.”   :D


Renee, I am joking of course!

But please take as seriously when we say that it is really annoying how you put zero effort on solving old problems.

3 years ago I praised RootsMagic's team for being so quick to add this problem to the tracking system, I didn’t know at the time that it was there since 2011… well, turns out that 7 years weren’t enough to address the problem yet.

RootsMagic is a very good application, but a lot of little problems like this were never addressed and I guess never will. I am seriously tempted to drop it for any other application.


Anyway, a workaround to the problem is to temporarily change your system (Windows/Mac) to a different Region/Locale like USA/UK and use english as your language. Then apply the coordinates, see the maps, etc… and, after ending, restore to your region. It is very annoying but was the only solution I have found.
