#99016 can't edit names

Posted by lorluk on 23 February 2021 - 03:14 PM in Issues

don't know what I've done... I cannot seem to edit names of any of my individuals. the box is dark blue.



I have so many .rmgc file along with a few rmgb files in 3 different locations... but not sure which ones are opened when I open Roots Magic. 

what location does the default file go?


I am using basic version.


#98938 export ged

thanks for your help. and sorry for my delay in replying. 

this is what I did:

  • opened my RM file
  • selected my mom
  • selected export, not everyone but selected from list highlighted person
  • unmarked group... only ancestors or descendants show
  • 10 gen... then option ancestors & descendants of ancestor... 10 gen

marking indicator popped up but nothing after that. 

so I created a new file in RM

and tried to import the ged... nothing!


what am I doing wrong? this should be so easy!!

first time posting so hope I am following rules of posting:


I have RM7 on my MacBook and use it a lot, especially recently when I found another line to work on.

I have several lines on the many branches of my family tree. 


is there a way to select descendants and ancestors of my mother not only direct line ancestors but extended ones.. like her aunts, cousins etc, second marriages etc?   I tried but could not find how to do that.  either its descendants or direct ancestors.


I would want to create a separate Ged Com file which I could share with other family of same lineage.
