In Topic: media links lost when importing from FTM to Roots Magic

16 August 2017 - 05:46 AM

Family Tree Maker 2005, service pack 1, which Roots Magic specifically states it does a direct import.  (I have FTM 2012 & 2014, but neither of those versions are satisfactory when compared to 2005.)

 

Windows 10, always currently updated.

Yes, I did a direct import, not via GEDCOM.  And for good measure, later on I did another direct import, just in case the first one was corrupted somehow.   The RM Tech person stated that this failure to retain the links is just the way RM works, although it seems like a serious issue and not just for me.  Because of this issue, I continue to use FTM as my primary genealogical database program.

 

I do appreciate and thank you for your thoughts, especially as you are not a FTM user.

Yes, that is one of the first things I tried, several times.  Each time the message came back that "there are no broken media links".  It's sort of like standing in the rain getting wet, while your friend keeps telling you it's not raining!
