In Topic: Monospace font in a note

20 November 2020 - 03:01 PM

I'm hoping for this as well.

I'd accept a new text attribute in the note text. (Bold, Itaic , Underlined, Monospaced)


I'm often trying to make tables in my source transcriptions as well.

In Topic: Feature request- fix broken media links log of actions taken

Yeah, in reality, I do the same. 

But when one starts working with thousands of files (I have about 5500) one shouldn't trust your memory.


This brings up the point that when "real" commercial databases refer to file storage, they just use GUIDs for the filenames.

Never a conflict.

But then direct user access to the files would be a nightmare.

In Topic: RM Locking Up After Accessing FamilySearch

Same here. 

I frequently get lock-ups using FamilySearch Person Tools.

I'm not just worried about some race condition. There are many times when I get access violation errors. A bug in RM code could mess up memory in SQLite's address spaces as well.

In Topic: Don't Do What I Did with Place Details

31 August 2020 - 04:37 PM

I find the place list a dangerous place to work.

It provides important functionality that must be present, but a single slip of the mouse finger during merge will merge a perhaps unknown entity with the selected merge target. 

I'd like to see a verification message displayed before accepting the arguments to the function.

Or a log that I can check to be sure I did what I wanted. 

In Topic: Language issue when using RootsMagic with FamilySearch

27 August 2020 - 11:12 PM

Now the question is whether RM will support matching dates in non-english languages.


I can now find the problems using the report, but I still need to find each text date and fix it.
