In Topic: Open database from last session

21 October 2005 - 11:47 PM

I did all those things several times. But nothing seemed to fix it. Just now I had to close Rootsmagic and restart the computer to finish installing a download. When I re-started the computer, Rootsmagic opened to the last person viewed!
I have no idea why it worked this time but I am glad it did.
Thanks for all your suggestions.

In Topic: Open database from last session

Laura,Oct 18 2005, 11:06 PM]When you go to Options/Program Options and choose "Open databases from last session", RootsMagic opens with the last database you were using when you closed the program last time. It doesn't tell the program which person to open with.

I think I had to reset the database to open with the last person from the previous session instead of the root person when I switched to RM 3.

Go to Options/Database Options and check to see who your Root Person is and if the database is set to open with the Root Person.

Hopefully, that is the problem.

I have the options set on "open databases from last session," and start person when opening as "last person from previous session." I have reset it to this and closed out of the program several times and it still opens with a person I haven't updated in a few months. I can't even change it to open with the root person.
I'm getting more that a little frustratrated. Seems like it is stuck on one person in my database no matter how I set the options.
