#94594 Release Date for RM8

Posted by Spencer on 31 July 2019 - 11:33 AM in Discussion

Those are all Good Points, Jerry.


I would like to see RM8 allow me to see ALL the different ways two individuals are related when I use the Relationship Charting Function.


Currently, in RM7, only a single relationship will Chart and Print.


I'd also prefer to see all the relationships listed so I can view each one interactively and see the individual permutations.  Then I'd want to Chart and Print the ones I want on a particular day.


This can prove to be fascinating if you want to know how many different ways A is related to B --- Henry VIII to Queen Elizabeth -- or moi to Jennifer Lawrence.

What would really be useful in RootsMagic 8 is a marked upgrade to the Relationship Calculator and Reports functions.

Thanks to TomH, Renee, alanmon and you, Vyger.


So File History in Win 10 is the Verdammt Culprit.


I'm quite familiar with File History and use it frequently -- and it puts beards on my RM7 Image Files.




I'll deal with it...


Cutting Off The Beards.

Something else is renaming your media files on the computer. RootsMagic won't change the filenames it only links to them. Like This


Windows 10?

#90982 Problem with images

Very True...


The Threads Often Just Trail Off To Oblivion...As Did This One...




One plausible "solution" I've discovered is laborious -- but works.


For some verdampt, unfathomed reason, it seems that RM7 likes to change the names of my media files.


Let's say I name an image file, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln,  AbeLincoln2 and it's designated as a .jpg file.


RM7 then wants to rename the image file as AbeLincoln2(2018_08_17 05_06_27 UTC).jpg.  Why, I do not know.


Now, if I trim the "beard" off the AbeLincoln2 file -- all that (2018_08_17 05_06_27 UTC).jpg. rubbish -- Media Gallery can find it and the image displays correctly without the verdampt and feared Red X.


So, if I trim the beards on all 4,567 image files I had in RM7 will they just be added again?


And, equally important, is there a quicker way?
