In Topic: Any news on RM 8 complete rewrite?

08 April 2016 - 06:51 AM

A complete rewrite cannot come soon enough, IMHO. I have only been using RM a few months, but am already looking for something else. The inability to easily move through the records, and having to work off essentially paper reports is very frustrating. Links have been around for years now. It is a shame the DB is not more robust.

In Topic: People Tab not working

Thanks Tom! I followed your instructions and was able to get my old DB back.   I did notice my census fact customization had left... I have added desc to census and customized the sentence. 


So far I have not found any missing data..

Renee - thank you - I reset the program, but that did not work. I did open a trouble ticket, so your help desk has my file.  Can you go into the code and set the columns?


Jackson from the help desk called - I had to create a new DB and drag my old DB into it. The people tab now works! Yeah! 

In Topic: Name Spellings

14 January 2016 - 02:56 PM

The Alternate Name fact has a "type" field, which is a drop down menu. The near the bottom is a menu item "other spelling" . I use that when someone changes their name, or a Mary Ann becomes Ann...  


I use the name they were born with as the 'root' name, then put the date I find the change in documents, and the change in the alternate name field.
