In Topic: FTM 2014 .htm files imported into RM as images

As possible quirk, have you tried renaming one of the extensions as .html and try that instead of .htm?  Just an idea...

In Topic: Export Media from Family Tree Maker 2 for Mac

When you export FTM with Media, it does not embed the media in the GED file.  But will leave it in the folder where it currently resides.

When you import the GED into RootsMagic, it may not find the media folder.

If it it does not, see this thread, where you simply point RootsMagic to the media folder, to resynch the images.

Question 2:

You can control somewhat what is printed to the right of a picture by adding extra lines in a Fact sentence template on the Edit person screen or extra lines in notes.

Unfortunately, it will not be a viable option with a database of 10,000 people, where each person has notes, etc.  With FTM, the photos could be place on the right side, or left side, etc.

Question 1:

Go to Lists, Fact type list and Edit a fact. Unchecking Narrative reports means that fact will not be included in a Narrative report for everyone in the database.

On a person's Edit person screen, you can mark the fact as Private, and it will not be printed in a Narrative report and some other reports for that person unless you choose to print Private facts for that report.

If you choose to print Private facts on a report, all Private facts for everyone in the report will be printed.

While not intuitive, this did work, so thanks for answering.  All of the facts in my Family Tree Maker (FTM) file were created as the result of adding records via the Ancestry website.  But they are not something that I use, as I have free form narrative notes for each and every person, including transcriptions of every record, etc.
