In Topic: Would like the ability to change font color with right mouse click

I once accidentally deleted all my color coding.  I think a protective "Are you sure?" question would be VERY useful!


I understand that Red is the first in the color list, but currently I only use Brown (for marking people with whom I have a proven DNA relationship, including their ancestors, back to our common ancestor).  Would it be possible to allow me to make a default color of other than Red?  Or perhaps would it be possible for RM to remember the last color chosen?  It would save a great many keystrokes.


Thank you all for your informative posts, as usual.

I'm glad you can reproduce the problem.  It would be helpful if there were a way for you to let us know when the problem's fixed.  Thanks.

Yes, there's a problem with RootsMagic access to Family Search.  It's 9:50 Pacific time on 9/29/2020.  Family Search is up and running when accessed from outside RM, but from within RM I also get the "Unable to connect to the internet" message.  RM is  There's no way to get out of the lock on the system, I find I must go to Windows task manager and cancel RM.  It's probably a temporary condition, but I thought I should post an "I have this problem too" so that Mr. Hayward doesn't think he's alone.  Most frustrating.  An earlier message in this thread said something about a file with over 30,000 users.  I don't even have 10,000 so that has nothing to do with it.

One warning, and maybe an opportunity for a program change.  I meant to clear the color for the person I was working on, but I accidentally clicked on "Clear all colors."  It cleared all colors in the database, my worst fears realized.  Luckily I had a backup from earlier the same evening, but still, is it possibly something that could have an "Are you sure you want to clear all colors in the database?", or some such thing?

The edit person screen just went back to being the full screen.  I didn't close the database without closing the program, so that's not the explanation, at least in this case.  I've put it back the way it should be, and it seems to be holding and working fine.  I thought that it might be moving the RM screen from one monitor to the other, which I often do, but just now I tested that and it doesn't seem to bother it.


There's some particular circumstance that we don't know about which causes it to lose its size.
