Re: Audit RM Direct Import plugin

Yeah the citation merging issue was one that I reported to RM support the first time about March or so of 2021. And I've mentioned a couple of times in the RM forums. The duplicate citation merge in RM8 does NOT look to see if the weblinks (webtags) or attached media are different. If the citation t...

Re: Audit RM Direct Import plugin

On a side note, and this is probably not something you can fix in your plugin, there is also the duplicate place name bug that I was told should be fixed in an upcoming update to FH (that is where if you run place clean for instance in RM8, you easily end up with multiple copies of the same location...

Saving a link to the note's section?

I use Ancestral Sources Method 2. After submitting I've been going in and adding a link to the Citation: Note section. I just wanted to make sure I was missing a way this could be done when using method 2 (the note box doesn't show when using method 2). Example of where I'm talking about: https://i....

Re: Template issue when exporting back to RM8

It would seem that the citation information would be uploaded to Ancestry. Instead of being in the normal citation field, it would show up in the "Other Information" part of the citation (merged onto whatever else might have been in that FH7 Note section). If someone really wanted to look up the cit...

Re: Error when Running "Change Specific Fact Tab"

Hi Mark: I completely forgot about this forum thread. I tried out the revised plugin and it works perfectly.

Re: Template issue when exporting back to RM8

Mike I'd say probably not to worry about a plugin (at least not for me). As I had mentioned I think, I never used the 'non-gedcom' parts of RM like tasks, research notes, etc. I was able to export a gedcom yesterday that imported into FH7 in the regular citation field (not as a template), all the me...

This time there was no errors listed in the log file. It looks like the citations (.page as listed in FH7) were imported but into the wrong field: ht...

Re: Template issue when exporting back to RM8

Hi Mike and Mark: I've did a little more testing.

Template issue when exporting back to RM8

Hi Folks: I'm looking to use RM 8 as a program to export to in order to upload to Ancestry and Familysearch. The Project I'm working with was a direct import from RM 8. When imported into FH 7 it imported the citations as a "Free-Form" template. The problem is that when doing a gedcom export using t...

Re: Issues when directly Importing RM 8 File with Places

Yes, after standardizing them, I had literally hundreds of dupes which I had to merge. If RM 8, you can have for example Canton, Ohio and Canton, Stark County, Ohio. Then you run the place clean function that can check a location database and add (as an example) United States to all locations in the...
