In Topic: Custom Reports an Shared Facts

So shared facts are apparently facts that cannot be shared. I really hope a remedy is being considered at RM.

In Topic: adding a [note] field to sentence template

<[Note]> is not redundant if I want the note to appear in the customized sentence box.

In Topic: adding a [note] field to sentence template

24 October 2017 - 10:39 AM

All I'm asking for is the sentence template equivalent of the memo field in TMG, [M]. When my TMG data set was converted by RootsMagic, all of my memo fields were transferred into the RM Notes field. I have several thousand notes in my database, each describing the fact they are associated with. Some of these are pages long. The description field is much too short for my needs and ends as soon as you enter a carriage return. I want the note to follow the customized sentence. For example, for the Principal of a Miscellaneous Fact, I would like to write:


Miscellaneous<, [Date:Plain]>
An event involving [Person:full]< and [OtherPersons]> occurred< [Date]>< [PlaceDetails]>< [Place]>.< [Note]>

That will not work if you want to add a source and the information for the source is under the RM window. I look forward to when the underlying RM window can be moved.

In Topic: Please Unlock RM Windows

I just tried this. I opened the same database again while in RM, with the timeline view on one side. When double clicking on a marriage event in the timeline view, a new edit window opens. This can be moved, but neither the Timeline window nor the RootsMagic window underneath can be moved. They block the view of my browser window. Yes, I can click on the browser window to bring it forward, but often can't position it so I can see the relevant info in both RM and browser.


I am glad this is on the enhancement list.
