Let's say I have a PDF about the history of the Plantagenet Family and would like to attach that PDF file to 30 or 40 people.
Is this possible WITHOUT having to tag each person, one at a time?
If so, how?

I have quite a few PDF, jpg, etc media files, all stored in a single directory.
I have been inconsistent (shame on me!) in naming these over the years.
For instance, I might have named a PDF or JPG file, as follows
Duke of Earl
I would like to go back and make everything the same style; however, we talking about files being attached to several people.
Is there an easy way to do this without breaking all the media links?
Excellent comments. It would be great if I could run a program which would create a Ref # fact for everyone in the database, copying their RIN number to that fact. But with close to 70,000 individuals, this is nothing I'm going to be able to do manually.
My properties shows I have 68,411 individuals; however, my next RIN number is 76,260. I have a lot of old deleted RIN numbers from various clean ups.
I don't want to create a GEDCOM export and create a new file as I use my existing RIN number for ID purposes. For instance, I list my media files according to person's RIN number. For instance, I am RIN 1and list my media files like this: 000001_Reverdy_Orrell_birth (etc). If I export to GEDCOM and create a new RM file, I believe I loose the current assigned numbers eventually, correct?
I thought that by running database tool / clean phantom records would free up those now unused numbers, but that isn't the case.
Any ideas on what to do?
It really isn't a major problem, but it is something I've been wondering about.
Thanks Renee & Tom. The last comment about unmarking number of sets of parents to greater than zero nailed it. This is very helpful as a "group".
Below is the entire sequence that I use for others who might be interested in creating a group of "end of line" direct ancestors
Go to Groups
Select self in checkbox
Ancestors of Highlighted Person
(Increase number of generations)
OK (This creates a group consisting of all direct line ancestors in database
Clear People by Data Fields
Number of sets of parents - greater than - 0 (zero)
OK (You then get a notice of the number of people who have been "unmarked" or deleted from the group
Give Group A Name (I use Reb - End of Line - Ancestors), if I am the starting person
I agree. It's complicated.
Would you agree these are "Royal" titles?
and that all the others are non-Royal? What should we call the non-royal titles as a group?
I've come across several people listed as "Sir". Are these titles of nobility.
Are there "Royal" titles and "Noble" titles?
Would you classify these as "Royal"?
How about Knights? Many are listed as "Sir Knight". Is that a title of nobility?
How about "Lord" and other titles?
What are your thoughts?
Does anyone create separate "Fact Types" for Kings, Queens, Prince, Princess, etc or just use one fact type such as the standard "Title (Nobility)?
I will learn to use SQLite first! I miss the good ole days with PAF with all the different 3rd party add-ons:
PAF Date Scan
PAF Media Packer
plus a few others that I can't remember.
I love Roots Magic, but I do miss PAF.
I have several PDF files in my scanned docs folder which I would like to tag and associate with several people in my database. For instance, I have a "group" labeled "U.S. Presidents". I have a PDF file explaining the Presidential $1 coin series. Is there a way to easy tag that PDF file to all individuals in the U.S. Presidents group?
I accidentally created a person with the name "Reb3ekah", then found out later.
Can a check or flag be put into place to pop up a warning block if you add a number or special character in the Given or Surname field?
I believe that technically, Kings, etc would list their "number" as a suffix
