This is the step I mentioned in my first post: it won't let me add only one parent as adopting - it adds both. But the natural mother married the adopting father, so marking her as adopting as well isn't correct.
This is one of those things you can't do online. In FTB you first create the natural parent child relationship. Then create the adoptive parents, the parent and temporary partner. Then set up the relationship with the adopted child. Then remove the temporary partner.
I have done this three times with equal success. The adopted child will appear in the family with a dotted line.
Many of my relatives have already entered in a lot about the people I have in my family tree. It would be very nice to be able to copy the facts - not only the Basic Data that can be copied through Smart Matches.
To do this you need to to a Smart Match and go into each person you want to copy info. Another way is Record Matches. A third way is depending om Smart Matches but I have e memory of Family Tree Builder is able to copy info bulk, several persons in one go.
All these methods require Premium or Premium Plus subcription.
2. On the left side panel, click on the photo you would like to rotate.
3. On the page that opens with the photo details, above the photo itself there are a few buttons. On the right side of the "Download" button you have two little buttons that allows you to rotate the photo right or left.
There had been a similar, previous response on this forum, but now I cannot find it.
I would like to combine two trees in my site into one tree. One has about 1000 names and the other has about 270. There are maybe 10 names of the same people in both trees. What is the best way to go about this process? Is this best to do in the MH Online or in the FTB or in some other application? Mac or PC.
I have previously used GenMerge which does a good job, but now they want me to buy it to continue using it.
There is a possibility to merge two or more family trees on Family Tree Builder. Note however that it is not an automatic process and if you have many people in one of the trees that also appear on the other, you will have to manually merge those duplicates.

These forums are getting harder to find. In the new online interface in both Profile and Tree mode there is no link anywhere to these forums. Even help is hard to find on these two pages - the only link I can find to help is right at the bottom of the ?-Help sidebar in Tree mode.
Thanks for your reply Athol. Yes, there is a link there and in a similar footer on the Apps menu, but neither qualify as easy to find when one is using the software and in need of help. More like something you might find if you knew the forum already existed and were looking hard for the link.
I have two screens, which is fantastic, and didn't cost much, a special deal was on at the time and my single screen had died so I had to buy one anyway...
On the left screen I display Family Tree Builder.
On the right screen I bring up the browser of my choice (well, okay, my computer-worker grandson's choice). Opera.
On that I use tabbed browsing to display:
Pandora. Love the music and put up with the ads and anyway there is a volume and an on-off switch to the speakers, on the desk; sub-woofer under the desk and two tweeters on the top, cost around thirty bucks all told on sale and a great sound...
and then from Family Tree Builder on the left screen I bring up FOUR TIMES (three would be okay) the Family Site.
So they show in four separate tabs and all I have to do is select the tab that is running the function I want: usually, Home; Web Site; Smart Matches; and the Forum, and when I have looked through the Forum, Mail.
And I use a fifth MH tab to bring up Record Matches as I find and want to look at them.
Much more simple and less involved than it sounds and works great.
P.S. Listening to Scott Joplin's the Entertainer right now. Then Mozart, Bagpipes and Celtic songs and music; Gregorian Chant... G.
In my FTB tree, the cards of my nephew and his current wife are adjacent and his former wife's card is off to the side; both wives have a decendent child. But in the Online Family Site the cards of my nephew and his former wife are adjacent. Why don't the trees Sync the same, and/or how can I force a display that shows their current status?
