Thst is up to Bruce Buzbee.
Renee has stated on another thread that no changes will be made in RM at this time if it requires a change in RM's database structure.
Bruce is doing a complete rewrite of RM so it will work on either Windows or Mac so I doubt he will be making any database structures changes for any reason to RM 7.
If he can make further corrections to the import of FTM gedcoms without changing RM's database structure, he might do that.
Thank you for the informed reply Laura, it's always best to approach these things being fully aware. The latest version of FTM is as modern as Rootsmagic so I think I will continue with FTM whilst studying other options for the future. I have watched some videos on Rootsmagic and dealing with places is not so straightforward as in FTM, this item and quality reports are very important to me. I have downloaded the free version of Rootsmagic and Legacy so I will work with them both on the side and wait to see what there next versions bring before committing my research to a new platform.
