I’ve been a longstanding RootsMagic user. Even after making the move to a Mac a year ago, I continued to use RootsMagic, a Windows-based program, by running it with Codeweaver’s CrossOver application. It worked pretty well for the most part – except for one extremely annoying issue. Despite setting up my default folders for my media files, RM didn’t remember the locations. Consequently, each time I went to link to a picture or a document, I had to navigate to the correct folder on my hard drive. It was a MAJOR inconvenience. Aside from that, I really didn’t have any complaints. So, when RootsMagic released the MacBridge program earlier this week, I wasn’t sure if it would be worth trying it out. But I’m sure glad I did! My folders are now retained in RootsMagic’s memory, and the program is operating as it should.
