Making the transition from RM7 to 8

Just now downloaded RM8 and having a hard time navigating. Any helps would be appreciated?

Mike, I am new to RootsMagic overall, the Webinars that Terry pointed out are well done and at a pace that is worthy of watching. I learned much from them. Looking forward to more!

Terry, you know of a schedule for future live ones?


They will update the Coming soon section on that link when there are new webinars. Until then no one knows…

Your Home page has links to the Webinars and RootsMagic TV. I expect that they will announce any new ones in the News panel above the Help and Support one

Thanks to all for the replys. Question? When I downloaded RM8 I took for granted that It took the RM7 info into the new version. Am I wrong? I tried to import RM7 files and RM8 would not do it since I had already began populating the RM8 program. I am confused as to why I could not import Rm7 into RM8. How can I make sure all the info from RM7 is now in RM8:?

RM8 will import your RM7 file into a new RM8 database. If you just started putting people in manually you need to stop, import RM7 data into a new RM8 file and start adding data to that file.

You need to understand the difference between a program and a data file that it creates or uses. Ask Uncle Google and read about the basics of file, folders and programs.
