Well Lior - the bigger question is the next one ;)
The current (major!) problems with the new version of FTB seem to arise from a corrupt interaction via the GEDCOM file - so it certainly seems a highly recommended course of action to start editing data online during the period that y'all are fixing that little annoyance. There are only a few advantages to working offline but the MAJOR one for me is the "belt and suspenders" back-up protocol. Using FTB we users get 2 sets - 1 local, 1 on-line. The on-line copies are generated by FTB publication; if a user publishes frequently he/she creates a useful, comforting library of on-line backup files.
So ............. the big question for on-line editing. Do you currently have in place a protocol for automated backup of the additions and amendments as they are being made on-line? Can I or you arrange a backup to be auto-generated every 10 minutes?
We have an online backup service backs up all the family trees and photos on your family site once a month so you’ll never lose info again. It is a paid service, available to all members who have a family tree on a family site at MyHeritage.com. The backup service is separate from Premium family site subscriptions or Family Tree Builder upgrades and it’s affordable so anyone can take advantage of the service.
We create backups of your family tree together with photos once every month and send you email notification with a link to download the backup. Links to the backups are also available on your family site under the Family Tree tab in the Backups section.
Each month’s backup is saved so if you need to restore a backup from two months ago or even six months ago, you can easily do so with the links provided. If you have more than one tree on your family site, each tree is protected separately at no extra cost.
Restoring backups is simple and takes a few seconds.
Backups are stored securely with password protection so you can be sure your information is safe.
The backup service is available for published family trees created in Family Tree Builder, our family tree software, as well as family trees created online on a MyHeritage.com family site.
To subscribe to the backup service for your family trees, just go to your family site to Family Tree > Backup.
I purchased the premium account specifically because I wanted to be able to print out my ENTIRE tree of 830 people. It said this can be done. However, when I set the printing to ALL people in ALL families, it still only prints out about 300-400 people. Several are missing. Why is this? Does anyone know how to print ALL people? Also, is there a way to make the view print out smaller? The incorrect printed family members were so big, I would need an entire wall of a house to fit that. -Mike
I did click on "create all in one" chart. It is not printing all the people in the tree. There are only a handful of people who are duplicated and nobody is in the tree that I don't consider distantly related. There are definitely glitches here...it's not something that I am doing incorrectly. For instance, another glitch I noticed the other day. I went to add pictures to various family members and my great Uncle Mike is left out when I try to find him in the tree. It's odd because all his brothers and sister are showing. Even when I change view to his father's tree, he is still missing. It's alright. I gave up on creating it. I printed all the info on a spread sheet, so I can cut it all out by hand and make my own tree. (I had hoped to avoid that, but it doesn't seem that I have a choice.) Thanks anyway.
Har Premium og har lige fået opdrageret til plus program.
Men har nu fået problemer jeg kan ikke udgive mit slægstræ - når jeg vil udgive fra mit slægtstræ kommer det en besked som kort fortalt siger at et andet program var skyld i , at programmet holdt op med at fungere.
Håber at der nogen som måske kunne fortælle om det noget jeg selv kan gøre?
Der skulle være ubegrænset plads på mit træ da jeg jo har udvidet til Plusabbonement.
Men stadig giver det problemer F.eks: når jeg går ind på en person i træet og vil se profil siden kommer der en besked som siger at denne person findes ikke på min familieside på grund af. mit abbonemt er begrænset størrelse og kan løses ved at opgradere min familieside. Men det har jeg gjort.
Når jeg prøver at trykke på opgrader kommer jeg til siden hvor jeg kan se at det står jeg har opgradet til plus. ??
Håber jeg kan få lidt hjælpe med at slette et billede fra en person i mit stamtræ.
Jeg har i forbindelse med at jeg forsøgte at oprette et stamtræ nr. 2, oplevet at programmet fik en fejl, hvor det pludselig flettede begge stamtræ sammen, samtidig kopierede det personerne og flyttede rundt på dem. Fx. min bror var pludselig mor til min mands far, eller mor til min farmor osv.
Jeg har derfor været nødsaget til at begynde forfra, og har slettet mit stamtræ.
Mit problem er nu, at jeg på min oldemor har har et billede som protrætfoto, men billedet tilhører en anden gren af familien, jeg har forsøgt at delete billedet, og selvom jeg forsøger, bliver billedet ved med at være der. Når jeg ser på min oldemors profil, står der 0 billeder ud for hende, men alligevel er der et billede af denne person. Jeg har også forsøgt at slette billedet fra fotoalbummet men uden held.
Thank you for writing and we appreciate your patience regarding this matter.
I understand that you might have some difficulty deleting a personal picture from a person on the tree. There is an additional way of doing that:
1. Click on a persons card with the person with the error.
2. Click on "View Profile" button which is located on the left panel (the blue button)
3. You will be sent to the profile page, move your mouse cursor on top of the profile picture - you will notice three little icons on the top right of the personal picture, click on the little trashcan.
Please, let me know how it works out for you.
Translation by Google Translate:
Tak for at skrive og vi sætter pris på din tålmodighed med hensyn til denne sag.
Jeg kan forstå, at du måske har nogle svært ved at slette et personligt billede fra en person på træet. Der er en ekstra måde at gøre det:
1. Klik på en persons kort med personen med fejlen.
2. Klik på "Vis profil" knappen, som er placeret på venstre panel (den blå knap)
3. Du vil blive sendt til den profil side, bevæger du musen på toppen af profilbillede - du vil bemærke tre små ikoner øverst til højre på den personlige billede, klik på den lille skraldespand.
If you're using Family Tree Builder - from menu bar (File, Edit, View, Person, Family, ..........) Select Tools, Options, Names and finally click on the default answer of "First, Last" in the right column of the first row. A drop-down list gives several options.
Now I'll give you just my personal opinion. I'd suggest not to make the change right now and I wouldn't recommend that you permit the software to connect with the myheritage.com site FOR ANY REASON (not for backup, not for editing changes, not to publish)! The new version of FTB is giving much unhappiness to users at present. Make sure your software is not active (close the window) if you decide to go online to view your tree. Do not be alarmed if your online tree appears to be ruined; if you do not permit FTB to communicate with the website you'll be fine after the current problems have been fixed.
This is a fine application and the flaws will shortly(?) be eliminated. Trust me :) You do not want to join those of us who are struggling with the problems.
