Topics I've Started

Rm Version content

16 September 2019 - 02:02 PM

We will have a RM version 8 shortly, I hope, but it seems, by the questions being asked on the forums, that very few people know what’s in the next version.


It seems that changes to a commercial software product come from several sources:

  • Bug Fixes
  • Changes in the development environment that must be addressed to have the product continue to work.
  • Changes in the base operating system that will require updating for RM to continue to work.
  • Changes in the base system that make it very advantageous for enhancement such as improved memory management or like we saw in years past a change from 32 bit addressing to 64 bit addressing.
  • Finally from the customer base, US, who will use the product.

I would like to know if there is a formal route to follow for US to suggest or request changes to RM?


There are some things that I would think are screaming to be fixed or enhanced but other development occurs first.

Family search hints

17 August 2019 - 12:08 PM

When using the hints for family tree it all seems to work well except it is a two stage process rather than a single stage. I must copy the events/fact and sources separately.


I have not yet been able to find the definite link between a event/fact and the source that is being used therefore I’m not sure which source to copy over.


My matching screen looks good - But the information screen does not provide a link to which source.


Can I get a definite link?

Publishing filter

16 May 2019 - 09:01 AM

I am having trouble filtering a published report when I apply filters. All my stories are set apart by categories. I wanted to publish just the ones in a single category or chapter. I filled out the filtering statement in the publish book but the filter does not seem to have any effect. All  the stories are printed in all categories.


Is there a way to get the filters to work?

Which marker is on top

27 September 2018 - 12:56 PM

I am importing a genealogy file and a set of place markers that I created. It seems that the Place markers are always on top and obscuring the genealogical marker beneath it.


Can I set one set of markers to the back and let the genealogical markers be on top?
