Repeatable OS Crash

31 December 2015 - 04:54 PM

This is a repeatable bug, and the result will crash the Mac operating system.


  • Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.2
  • When using "Generate files for a website"
  • Clicking the end result button to "View this website in your browser" crashes and reboots the operating system

The obvious workaround is to not click the button, and manually open the file via Finder, etc.

Narrative Report: Descendant (Question on Facts & Photo)

30 December 2015 - 05:43 PM

As a new "refugee" from Family Tree Maker, I have a couple of questions pertaining to Narrative Reports in RootsMagic.


Reference Image:



Question 1: Is there a way to limit which facts are included in the narrative report?  


With Family Tree Maker, there was a (default) to include only "preferred" facts, which are birth, marriage, and death.  As you can see in my example, the RootsMagic narrative includes all facts.  This is something that I find to be useful or helpful.  The reason being, is that I have my own extensive "narrative" notes for each couple, etc.


Question 2: Is there a way to adjust the photo placement?


Note how "disjointed" the photo placement of the wife is in my example.  It appears the wife photograph is place next to the marriage fact, and then my notes begin.  Or is there a way to "force" the notes begin after the photograph, etc.?
