I don't think it is a database corruption as the same one works fine on my old win 7 laptop, I have done a full laptop rebuild so everything is fresh and imported the known working copy of the database and no change. It was working fine on win 8 at that point but there was a big update not so long after I think must have killed this application. As I said there is no problems under win 7 and running it as win 7 on win 8 did not help. Now have to dump this app in favour for one that is win 8 compatable.
This is a long standing problem of MyHeritage, what ever you do to add two or more trees together you have to manually merge the data of the multiple duplicates that are formed and then delete each one of the otherwise superfulious duplicates, they have yet to produce an automated procedure.
In their defence they do provide a procedure to identify duplicates but beyond that nothing
Do other user feel that there should be an option to list ALL boards on this forum in the order of the latest update, rather than in the order of when the topic was first created.
As at the moment, if there is a interesting topic on say page 4 that you reply to, nobody will find your comment unless they wade through the other 3 pages, and as google says "you must be on page 1" you are blowing in the wind if you want a reply
Sorry to say that My Heritage has withdrawn the "Classic" view of your tree and you are stuck with the "Modern" view, there are many users of the same opinion that they would like to keep the older view but MyHeritage has steamrollered their customer base into this "Modern" view without choice.
I can understand that you might have doubts when you find the online tree you're familiar with has changed.
So, what's so great about the new tree?
The look of the tree hasn't changed much so you don't need to relearn how to use the tree. Viewing, navigating and searching the tree is basically the same and editing the tree is very much the same as well.
There are some nice additions though, like the Radar, which allow you to see a "map" of the tree and instantly jump to any place. In the previous version if you wanted to travel through the tree, you had to click and drag endlessly to get anywhere.
The new tree editor only has one style (or view) right now - the Classic view has been discontinued - but that will change as we're adding some new styles so you will still be able to see the tree in the view you like best.
We streamlined the editing options. For example, in the previous version of the family tree editor you also had a lot of other options that didn't really belong in the ADD phase. All those options have appropriate places now that make much more sense. There are more flexible options for adding dates in the new tree editor. You can add dates like "before", "after", "from...to...", etc. Adding and editing marriages and partnerships is quicker now too as the fields are located in the instant, basic editing fields.
Birthday and anniversary notifications are bigger and brighter, add me cards show you where you need to add more ancestors, you can invite people directly from the tree by adding email addresses and more.
An important change in the new online family tree is that it is now HTML5 based. This means you can access and edit the tree from any mobile device or tablet, which was not possible before. The switch to HTML5 also made it possible for us to offer editing in the MyHeritage app, which is great for people who edit their trees online - you can now truely edit your tree anywhere, anytime.
Family Tree Builder users will also benefit from editing in the new tree as version 7.0 of the program will offer the ability to make edits online and integrate them into your tree in the program.
We're really starting to bring together all the different aspects of MyHeritage to give you a more seamless experience.
There are a lot of good things about the new online family tree. I hope you will give the new online family tree a try and come to appreciate the improvements we've made.
Hello I have a problem with adding new people to my heritage. There is missing the plus " ". Where is it a problem, please? Thank you very much, I am getting desperate :( And note, I have in my heritage only 101 people, so I haven´t better Premium account...
The reason you are not seeing a plus sign on your family tree within your online family site is due to the fact that you are currently running version 6 of the Family Tree Builder Software. What you will need to do is to click here to download and install the latest version of the software.
Once you have done this then you will need to sync(publish) your family tree for the first time with the new version to your online fmaily site. You will now see the plus sign attached to profile cards of individuals within your online family tree.
