Subject: [RMagic] Importing from FTM
Date: Fri, 4 Mar 2011 14:06:54 -0500
A cousin sent me a FTM file, I believe it was made with 2005. I imported it
into RM with out issue at first. But now I see some of the images are
missing. Most were imported fine, but others show the image but is blank,
but has the description.
I'm wondering why it's not importing some of the images right??
If I take the same file and import it into my fTM 2011 then it loads
everything just fine, no missing images.
I though I would fix the problem by deleting all the images RM dropped into
my documents folder, copy the images FTM imported from the same file into my
dropbox and run RM image link fix.
But the problem is FTM named the images differently then RM did when
importing. So it wont find any of the images. It looks like FTM imported
the files with the original names were RM added a lot of (4) things at the
end of the images. I don't think it should have as there were NO doubles in
the file or on my hard drive already.
There are a few hundred all with descriptions..
Is there a way to fix this??
Also RM is not giving me an option to list a person as a source for the file
like it does with a gedcom import.
