Searching for places

25 March 2020 - 08:18 AM

Im trying to find out the person associated with a specific place. The list place feature just lists the place not who is linked to that place. I know how to generate a custom report for specific facts like birth or burial to list the place. But I want to list everyone across all facts associated with a specific place.
My reason for this is a boneheaded error on my part. I mistakenly entered a date in the place field and didnt catch it till much later. So I have a place now listed as 10-1-1887. I cant see who this is attached too. I can delete the place from the place list but Id like to discover who this is attached to because Im pretty sure the date for the event is blank. If I knew who this was I could replace the date with the correct one.
Thanks in advance

Saving file in wrong location

Roots Magic is set to save my file on an external drive. Everything was working fine and I would periodically copy the .rmgc over to Dropbox as a backup. This morning I went to copy the file to Dropbox and realized the file on Dropbox had this mornings date modified and the file on the external was a few days older? I did not overwrite either file at this point. I thought the program would save the file to the folder you had selected in the tools>folder options? Seems to be saving to Dropbox instead
