IE is not just an internet browser. It opens HTML for sure but also is used by windows for other protocols such as HTTP or FTP and others.
Accordingly when it is upgraded it can affect other software which relies on it to display elements. The Notes box for instance. This component appears to me to be a third party piece of software bolted into MH about two years ago and which is an old legacy software element from early webpage CMS software. I know this because I used to use software with the very component in it (albeit with the ability to edit text and font style and size and more) when I managed a website for a client who used this software. It is likely that any significant IE upgrade will affect older software because it wasnt written with IE in mind to handle it.
The important thing to recognise is that MH isnt fastest off the blocks with patches and fixes so you have to be pateient and wait for their engineers to fix the problem. Inevitably the solution is to reinstall the new version and to remember that the original data is most likley safe (but unviewable) in a backup file or latest save file or the online file.
This is indeed terrible. I know, because it has happened to me. If I were you, I would get in touch with the support team directly and perhaps they can retrieve your notes. Did you perhaps check the 'do not publish' button in FTB? Or perhaps you are using the outdated version of FTB in which the problem surfaced? In that case they will give you a link to fix it. I myself have turned off the automatic sync and sync only manually to the on-line tree after checking that all is well. Good Luck!
I admit that I am new to MyHeritage. That being said: Is there a reason that when I do "extract record" it causes the date on my family tree to be one day past the date I am trying to extract? Is this done on purpose? Will it self-correct when I sync? Or do I have to change each one manually?
Thanks, that answers one part of my question that was summarily removed (though I received a courteous reply from the support team).
And I am glad everybody else finally got to see that.
Until the fix is in; should we adjust all dates from Geni by one day? And which way? And does it affect dates from other sources?
There is also an issue with the setting out of the names of ladies who have married; not only does Geni use a different notation to many of us
(if Mary Smith marries John Jones I use Mary Jones (born Smith) but they prefer Mary Smith Jones) but it mucks up the names in the tree (neither one nor the other) and I have to correct them. Is that a bug too?
Every extract match process gives you the opportunity to choose the information you would like to copy to your family tree.
Instead of clicking on the generic "Extract all" on the bottom of the page, you can click on the arrows between the match and the data on your tree for each piece of information, and extract those bits of information one by one:
This can be done for the dates, names, etc. That way, you can keep the data that you believe is already correct on your family tree.
Inden jeg oprettede en bruger på "MyHeritage" startede jeg på at benytte et andet program der hedder "MacFamilyTree" og er kommet langt længere i dette program med at lægge oplysninger ind. Derfor vil jeg høre om der er nogle som ved, om det er muligt at kopiere data de to programmer imellem, eller om man virkelig skal igang med et møgsommeligt arbejde at "flytte" alt pr. bogstav til bogstav ?

Möchte zusetzlich zu den Namen meiner Familienangehörigen wie Grossvater oder Ururgrossvater, diese Beziehung zu mir zufügen, sodass man sieht in welcher Beziehung wir zu einander stehen. Z.b. dass Jakob Troplowitz geb. 1752 mein 5ter Grossvater ist.
Thanks for getting back to me. If I uinderstand you correctly, the software has to reside oin my local c:\ drive but I can have my data on the network drive. That's what I've tried to do but the software keeps picking up my data from the c:\ drive. I'm going to back up my project the c:\ drive and then move that entire folder to my network drive.
Sorry if I wasn't clear. In order for the software work properly, the data also needs to reside in your computer for a smooth opening and working with it.
What I tried to suggest was that you can make a copy of the data and save it anywhere. But still you need to keep the original version on the computer.
Nonetheless, remember that by syncing your tree to your family site on MyHeritage, you are actually doing the same thing as saving it on a Cloud. In other words, you are sycing and saving it to a remote server (MyHeritage's server).
The cloud will be the way of the future and if the software cannot be loaded to that network drive-- then it should be high on the developement team agenda-- you know third on the list after, coffe, football and Golf.
