#96806 RootsMagic in a virtual machine

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 19 March 2020 - 08:23 AM in Discussion

Thanks, mjashby & bscott26. I'm in the throes of moving to a new house and can't undertake the project for another month or so, but will try RM7 under WINE as soon as I get the chance. I notice that neither of you mention Ubuntu. When I do undertake the conversion is there a distribution which you think preferable?

 

Thanks again.

 

Robert




#96756 RootsMagic in a virtual machine

Thanks, Keith. I'm having my semi-annual "abandon Microsoft" fit, and am thinking of limiting my Windows use to RM7 in a VM running under Linux. The project is probably an uneconomical use of time and effort, as I do have everything running very smoothly under Win10 Pro. If I go ahead I'll keep your advice in mind. Thanks again.




#96709 RootsMagic in a virtual machine

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 08 March 2020 - 01:53 PM in Discussion

What would be the downside to running RM7 (RM8 soon, I hope) in a Windows virtual machine running under Linux? Would there be any reason to prefer Windows 10 to, say, Windows 7?




#97700 Running RM7 against a production database and a test database

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 12 July 2020 - 11:01 PM in Discussion

Why not just make multiple backups of your production material, restoring as necessary when an experiment doesn't work? There might be less to keep track of, esp if your exhibits inhabit a complex folder/subfolder system?




#96855 Searching for places

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 26 March 2020 - 07:54 AM in Discussion

It's hardly intuitive. I've often thought the term "print" on the place list should have been "report" or some such.




#96847 Searching for places

Go to the place list and highllght the incorrect place. Click "print," then "generate report." That should do it.




#96698 Suddenly, I can't paste text to a Note

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 05 March 2020 - 12:05 PM in Issues

This may be unlikely, but I know (to my occasional sorrow) that some gaming keyboards have a switch which disables some of the Windows editing functions.




#97245 UNICODE vs. UTF-8 vs. RootsMagic

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 16 May 2020 - 09:51 AM in Discussion

Google translate turns "Jerry" into "Gary," but the sentiment is right.

Thanks, Renee.

 

No. Would it help if they were? I would prefer not to affect the format of places as I've entered them on event tags. It really isn't terribly important -- just a minor annoyance, easily coped with.




#96456 Who Was There list

Posted by robertjacobs0 on 24 January 2020 - 02:00 PM in Issues

I had occasion to invoke the Who Was There List report this morning, I think for the first time. I wanted to know who was in Kansas from 1880 to 1890. The report spat out the Kansas events — and also Arkansas events. I can see how this happened and why the search may have produced it. I'm wondering if there's any way to avoid it.

Thanks, TFTMTeutoppil. As I told Renee, it's only a minor annoyance and the report is more for research purposes than display or publication.

I'll try that. Thans, Renee.
