Gedcom missing a marriage

27 March 2017 - 09:51 AM

Does anyone have an idea of why one of two marriages for a woman would not get exported into the Gedcom?  This is not happening to everyone, but I have found it with two different women.  In both cases, both the husbands are definitely included in the Named Group being exported.  I can't find a common denominator to give me a clue why these marriage events are not exporting.  Help!!



Description Window

17 January 2017 - 01:30 PM

Is there a way in RootsMagic to open the Description field in a little window for editing, the way the Notes window opens with Ctrl/N ?  


With a long description text, it is hard to review it, or to get to a specific part of it to copy and paste, in the one-line field.


Thank you,


Question on Customized fact sentences

23 December 2016 - 12:01 PM

Is there some view in RM, or some query in SQLite Expert where I can list Person, Facttype where the sentence for that Person/Facttype is a local customization?


I am cleaning up TMG data, and it seems like the direct import brings in all my Facttypes (Tags) and their sentence templates, and when the sentence has a local customization at the person level, the customization is there.  I am trying to find a way to identify those records with local customized sentences, without checking every one manually.




Long text in fields

19 December 2016 - 06:01 PM


I am a new user, converting over from TMG.  I am checking the data in my test import.  I wonder if there is a keystroke to "pop up" a field that has more text than fits in the visible portion of a field.  In TMG there is a keystroke to pop up the field in a dialog box so you can read all the text, wrapped, without scrolling.  I looked for Shortcut keystrokes in Help, but did not see this.
