#59175 View Timeline

Posted by Dae Powell on 28 July 2013 - 10:48 AM in Discussion


I really love the Timeline View and I would like to export grid information to a text file, Word file, or PDF file. Even an Excel worksheet would help!

I've tried and failed to figure out how to do this. Can anyone help?

I'm really interested in the inclusion of the person's family events along with his/her own, so the normal Timeline Report isn't sufficient.

#58116 Problems creating gedcom

Posted by Dae Powell on 02 June 2013 - 01:14 PM in Issues

I really haven't had problems with getting RM to export to GEDCOM format. The problem I've noticed is that it is not a true GEDCOM format. That is, it doesn't meet all the criteria of a .GED file.

Since the GEDCOM 5.5 specifications have been available as of 1995, one would think that all genealogical software would adhere to the standard. They don't and RM is no exception.

Here's the webpage for it, in case you're curious: http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pmcbride/gedcom/55gctoc.htm

I use several programs which interpret GEDCOM files that I download from the Internet. (No, I do NOT merge them with my RM database.) Each one of these programs reports problems with GEDCOM files generated by RM. My favourite, Behold!, included.

Is anyone currently working on this?
