Re: Reunion 9 or Family Tree Maker - Which one?

I have a large file, around 180,000 people, in my father's tree. He worked in his old pc, and now I would like to continue with maintenance of his work. I have a macbook pro and I started using Family Tree Maker for Mac, at the beginning it did not work at all, now after the last update it works, very slow, but works. But the problem I have is that every time I try to compact the file the software crashes and the next time I open it it says that I should compact the file. I need to export the file in gedcom format to be able to upload it to where my father published his work, and it has to be under 10 me gas to be able to to it. My FTMM file is 455 MB rigth now, when I export it as gedcom it becomes 10 MB. I do not like to make changes directly in geneanet because it can't be undone.

My question is, I am considering switching to Reunion, but I want to be sure it would work well with my file before paying 100 for it, I already lost 60 with the FTMM.

I made a post with a question about the problem with FTMM, and almost every answer was that it definitely won't work, that I should change softwares.

Anyone has any experience with Reunion and large files? Any advice?
