I figured out a fix to one of my problems. For example, here is a RootsMagic 4 wall chart produced by the RootsMagic Chart program for an 8 generation chart of my ancestry. I put the wedding photograph (the original is an 8" x 10" photograph) of my parents in as a background. The 8 generation chart measures 45" x 124" full scale. As you can see below, the photograph is distorted because it fills the space available (I showed only a screen shot of some of the top of the chart, but you can see the distortion):
There are no sizing or transparency options for the photograph (that I can find!) like other software programs have (e.g., Legacy Family Tree 7). In order to get a true size image I reduced the generations to five and then in the RootsMagic Chart program I clicked on Layout and then set the Canvas to be 40 inches wide and 50 inches high. That worked, as shown below (screen shot of the top half of chart):
In my earlier post, I complained that "I still cannot get RootsMagic Chart to export a file. There is no way to register it from the program. I have registered my RootsMagic 4 program."
Below is a screen shot taken today of a chart that I wanted to Export to a file.
I thought, "well, did I register my RootsMagic 4?" I thought I had, so I found my Registration Key and registered it again. In Help > About RootsMagic I saw "Version 188.8.131.52, 4 Mar 2009, registered to Randall Seaver." So it knows that I'm registered - but is that the Demo version?
I exited the program and started it again, and I still got the "Export is disabled in the demo version."
Then I thought "well, do I have the latest RootsMagic 4 version - maybe they've updated it?" I went to the RootsMagic Update site from Help>Check for Updates (in RootsMagic 4) and the latest version they have there is Version 3.2.6, so I have no clue if I have the latest update or not.
I really like RootsMagic 4, and understand that the program was released just two months ago, but I want it to work flawlessly for my purposes. Am I the only user that has problems like this?
Any suggestions from RootsMagic 4 wizards?
