RootsMagic 7.6.5.0 is a VERY ELEGANT and EFFICACIOUS Genealogical Program.

 

It would be a GREAT PITY to see it junked and replaced with a much dumbed-down and klutzy successor.

What's the Rationale?

 

Liability Issues for RootsMagic Inc.?

Cost of Maintaining These Fora?

 

Therefore:  Outsourcing to Facebook?

One deficiency in the current Relationships Function in RootsMagic 7.6.5.0 is as follows:

 

1.  Let's say Tom wants to know all his relationships to Edward I "Longshanks" of England; the villain in the 1995 Oscar-winning Mel Gibson film, _Braveheart_.

 

2.  RM7 may tell Tom he has 321 relationships to "Longshanks" -- beginning with 20th great-grandson.

 

3.  Tom goes to _Reports > Charts > Relationship Charts in RM7 and finds that he can only delineate, examine and print ONE Relationship Chart of the 321 possible charts - the one showing him to be a 20th great-grandson.

 

We need a function in RM8 whereby Tom can examine in detail and print those 320 other relationships to Edward I.

Yes.  It would be useful and salient to hear from BB on this issue.
