I have a question please-- say I find a post from 6 months ago that kind of answers my question BUT I am NOT sure how to do everything they suggest ( say Adding a new fact)-- is it better to reply to the old post or start a new post
Thanks for any advice

  1. Read the wiki which is RM8’s approach to a user manual.
  2. Watch the webinars and try out features if on Windows. If a mac user be cautious since features demonstrated on Windows often do not work on macs until a subsequent bug fix.
  3. If new to RM8 be hesitant to use it as your master database until you have become familiar with it and have encountered no serious bugs.

The question was about using this forum - not about using the program.


Yes, but to use the forum it helps to understand RM8 basics and the purpose of the forum is to facilitate RM8 use.
