When I Set Relationships, with myself as the target, my aunts and uncles by marriage are identified at the bottom of the screen as "Aunt" or "Uncle," just like their spouses to whom I am actually related. This doesn't happen with more distant relatives, such as great aunts or uncles by marriage. No relationship at all is shown for them.

If you have installed Parallels and then the Windows version of RootsMagic on your Mac, use File>Open on your current .rmgc database file, or use File>Restore if you have the .rmgb backup. I do believe you need to move the files over to your Windows side.
Thanks, Renee. File>Open didn't work, but File>Restore did. I also had to relink my media files, but that didn't take long. I run Parallels in Coherence mode, so I didn't need to move any files. At least, I assume Coherence is the reason I didn't have to.
I'm afraid I don't have an answer to your question - only two questions! I am using 7.0.1 which I believe is a Windows version using crossover. I have been trying to find a native Mac version, but what appears to be one shown on the Rootsweb download site merely gives me a repeat 7.0.1. I would be asking 'how did you stumble across the version you are using?, but now am asking' why do you want to move back again to crossover?'
I'm using the Crossover version. There isn't a native Mac version yet. The reasons I want to move back to the regular Windows version are: 1. No upload to Dropbox to update the app on my iPad 2. It's noticeably slower than just running the Windows version under Parallels 3. Parts of the display are too hard to read. I've changed all I could in the display options, but that doesn't affect the font size in the menus or Edit Person screen, for example.
Thanks, Tom. So it's a citation by citation label. Well, at least it only shows up in Gedcom. I guess I'll just delete it when it shows up on WikiTree, and fix it in my database when I'm working on someone and notice it. I can't face going through hundreds of citations looking for it. Or is this something I can fix in SQL?
When I first started using The Master Genealogist many years ago, I used their "surety" system of assigning ratings to sources: 3=primary, 2=secondary, 1=I don't remember. Eventually I stopped doing that. But I never went back and deleted the sureties I had already assigned.
RootsMagic seems to be labeling these as "certainty: 3", etc. They don't show up in narrative reports or family group sheets, at least not the ones I've checked so far. Where they do show up is in some GEDCOM exports and imports. Specifically, I'm uploading some people to WikiTree and they are showing up in the source citations there. But when I look at the source in the Master Source List, there's nothing about certainty or surety in the footnote, short footnote, or bibliography. I've also looked at the Source Templates for these items, and there's nothing there, either.
How can I get rid of this?
In working with my DNA matches, it would be extremely useful if I could generate a kinship list that included only relatives by blood (no "spouses of") and could restrict the list to specific relationships or ranges of relationships, such as 2nd to 4th cousins. It would also be great if I could restrict the list by maternal or paternal lines, and included, or at least recognized, multiple relationships to the same individual.
An improvement to the relationship chart would also be nice. The format of the chart is great for demonstrating relationships, especially to people who may be new to genealogy. I would like to be able to create multiple charts to show multiple relationships between two individuals. After all, according to the RootsMagic relationship calculator, I'm my own cousin ten different ways.
