Further update on RootsMagic 4

You are invited to read my two previous posts explaining my first impressions of RootsMagic 4. I would also like to thank those who took time to send me comments on my first posts. I took the time to view all of the RootsMagic tutorials online at RootsMagic.

The tutorials are a good introduction to the program, but it would be nice if there were a link from the RootsMagic menus (something obvious) that directed you to the tutorials. After watching the tutorials I have a much better understanding of the scope of the program. I still find several issues with the lack of features that seem to be available in FamilyInsight and Ancestral Quest (AQ) but maybe more study of the program will show me how to accomplish what needs to be done in RootsMagic 4.

Just so there is no misunderstanding, I am a fan of RootsMagic. I think the program itself is very good and I can recommend it to anyone, especially those who are presently using Personal Ancestral File. But I also consider myself a fan of FamilyInsight, Ancestral Quest and Legacy. As I get more time today or tomorrow, I will continue to give my comments.
