FTM should have a trial or demo version especially at their price point. If you say you owned a prior version they give you a discount without any proof. My wife started with FTM about 1999 but we had no receipt nor any idea of the version but got the discount anyway.
Revisit FTM if you rejected it before 2017. It is a very different program and ancestry/familysearch api interface.
Heredis does have a good demo model and is appealing initially. There is a downloadable basic manual but no other help. I believe they store all media inside your database file contrary to all other genealogy programs.
I am hoping RM8 mac finally shows up and is functional. Reunion seems to be stuck in the past and out of touch.
