List of RootsMagic-created fact types and their default sentences

Is there a way to determine which Fact Types where created by the RootsMagic developers that come standard with the program, and types that were created by me? Also is there a list of those RootsMagic-created facts and their original sentences anywhere that I can download?

From the Fact Type screen, highlight a fact and click Edit button. If the Name and Abbreviation are grayed out, they’re RM8 provided. If editable, they’re yours.

Don’t believe the company offers such a list. Some diligent user may have documented these, though.

RM8 Fact List

Thanks kbens0n. This process gives me the information as to whether or not I created the fact and sentence. I imagine I haven’t changed too many of the RM-created sentences.

Thank you for replying BobC. Unfortunately I closed my FB account a few months back.

Wow BobC!! Thank you.

I’ve taken a look at several of my fact types and I know I did not create some of the fact types that are not grayed out. For instance, I know I did not create a Birth-Covt fact type–I don’t even know for what situation it was created. I need to do more research. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

RM’s built-in Fact types are editable, unlike RM’s built-in Source Templates. They are never grayed out.

There is no easy way in the RM user interface to determine which fact types have been added or edited, nor is there an easy way in the RM user interface to restore a given fact type to factory default. The only way I know of to see all the factory defaults is to create a new and empty RM database and look at its fact type list.

I haven’t tried it, but I suspect that if you did an import of fact type lists from a new and empty database that it might reset all the built-in fact types to factory default. But even if so, there still isn’t anything like a checkbox you can click to set a particular fact type back to factory default. You can do a manual reset of a particular fact type by copying and pasting the sentence for that fact type from a new and empty database into your current database, and by setting the enable/disable flag for narrative reports, GEDCOM, FGS, Description field, etc. according to your new and empty database. You would have to do the same for each fact type you wanted to reset if that was the way you did it.

Thanks Jerry. I was afraid of that.

Oh my! Thank you so much Tom! How very wonderful of you to do this. I have printed this and will keep it in my RM notebook. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Interesting, because I don’t get any of the “Witness” facts when I create a new empty RM8 database using 8.1.2 and SQLite Expert 5.4 against the Fact Type table.

The Witness or shared roles are in the Role Table. My SQLite query is in the link I added to the post.

I have used SQL for many years, many more years than I have used SQLite. Even after all these years it can sometimes be hard for me to remember that the data you expect to see in a given table may not be in that table at all. Instead, the data may be in a different table that must be joined to the table that might logically considered to “contain” the data.

For example, facts in RM can have roles, and different facts can have different numbers of roles. But that doesn’t have to mean that that the roles are in the fact table. Because there can be a variable number of roles for a fact, there is almost a 100% guarantee that the roles won’t be stored in the fact table.

Relational databases don’t do variable number of data elements as a variable number of columns within a row. Instead, they join with another table which has a variable number of rows for the variable number of data elements. The rule to remember is “fixed number of columns, variable number of rows”.

I start my facts with a special character such as a . * # or any other special character. This places them at the top. They also have their own sorting order.

I also do this with custom source templates.

I have created lots of special Fact Types and Source Templates of my own. Like Gpetranek, I name them with the first character a checkmark (√ = Alt-251) which puts them at the top and alphabetizes them.

In fact, all my sources are self-created ones, even full copies of RM Created ones. That way, all the source types I actually use are grouped at the top of the template list in alphabetic order so I don’t have to scroll through the huge list of original source templates to find one. This is sort of like the “Favorites” marked with a √.

To document what I created for sentences and source templates, I simply take a screen shot of a new source template opened in edit mode, crop the screen shot down to the template box, and save it to a folder called “RM8 Source & Citation Templates.” I then open a sample citation using that new template and do the same (screenshot, crop, and save). Here is an example of ones I developed for DNA matches and Ancestry ThruLines:
√DNA Autosomal Match – Structure.pdf
√DNA Autosomal Match – Sample.pdf
√DNA Autosomal Match – Export.rmst
√DNA Ancestry Thrulines – Structure.pdf
√DNA Ancestry Thrulines – Sample.pdf
√DNA Ancestry Thrulines – Export.rmst

You will notice that the file extension “.rmst” is an export copy of the template. All three are stored together in the same folder. In case I later mess up a template or have to re-create it, I can import my original .rmst template to recover it. I also print the structure and sample as a pair and keep it in a notebook. You will be surprised how often you can re-use snippets of footnotes and bibliographic entries to create new templates.

I did all this in RM7 and now RM8. Works great.
