I want to publish the ancestors of an individual but limited to 5 generations but I cannot find out how to do that.
I have more than 2500 individuals in the tree and would like to upgrade to Premium. I cannot upgrade, however, if I cannot choose the individuals to publish. Currently it seems to publish a random selection of individuals which is entirelyunhelpful.
We have added better privacy controls in Family Tree Builder. You can now prevent online publishing of specific people, specific notes, specific facts, or certain facts for all people, hide privatized info from charts and reports, and exclude privatized info from GEDCOM exports.
To edit these privacy settings for your tree, go to Tools > Advanced Privacy Settings and select who you wouldn't like to publish.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
Hi, I have the same problem, I don't want to publish all persons on the web and it's easier to select people 'not to publish'. I tried your recommendation but the person is published on web as 'privet' and it seems it's counted as one person anyway. Is there a way to select persons which shouldn't be uploaded to web site?
Or is it possible to select more persons to publish at once? At this moment it seems thatI have to add them to list one by one.
Ikke vet jeg hva som er galt,men kelly Lihaven sin Mail er riktig så da skjønner jeg ikke at det skal komme opp feil når jeg invitere henne,hun har også vært inne tidligere men nå var pluteslig den gal pluss et par andre-
Is it possible to copy a fact from one persons details to another persons. Eg. I have entered all immigration and moving facts for one person and know that the same details apply to everyone in the family, so I just ctrl click each fact and press ctrl c, then I go to each person and press ctrl v to paste the details, but this concept does not work, so at the moment I have to individually enter the details to every single person.
I have moved my projects folder to a new location. This has created two problems:
1) I am able to open the project, but when I try to add a new picture, though I see the new picture in the upload preview, as soon as I upload it it shows up as a standard icon that seems to indicate a picture not found. This may be related to:
2) When I close the program and reopen it, the projects folder has been reverted to its standard location. I have tried this five or six times, and it keeps reverting the location.
The problem is complicated by the fact that I moved the folder to a different user's account. I have tried to give full permission to access the folder there, and the MyHeritage folder in the Program Files area...are there any other folders used that need permissions to be granted?
I have even backed up the whole project (with photos) and restored it from the backup...nothing seems to work.
When I try to add a new photo, the editor either doesn't open, or opens with no photo shown. When I close the editor, the sequence of photos shows the old photo thumbnails correctly, but the new photo appears with a standard icon, presumably representing an unopenable thumbnail. I cannot access the phot in any way.
There are times, in my various attempts to fix the problem, that I have received the message "Unable to copy C:\Documents\MyHeritage\xxx.jpg to C:\Documents\MyHeritage\xxx.jpg. The two file locations are always identical. I have repeatedly made sure that there are no permission issues with the relevant folders (and the problem comes up using the administrator logon, as well).
But I am not currently receiving this message...I can't figure out exactly what changes trigger it. In any case, the other behavior is the same whether this message appears or not.
I am sometimes on two different computers of a network and would like both to link to the same data area so that any updates done on either one are effective. When I try to open a file stored on a network drive, Family Tree Builder makes a local copy of the tree and stores any changes on this, rather than updating the original. How do I get the two computers linking to the same file?
I rarely get involved with forums of any description, but in this case I know the frustration you feel regarding this issue having been there myself.
The short answer to your query is no, at least not at the present moment in time.This was the first question we asked some 3 weeks ago as we wanted to run FTB on our Client/Server network. Subsequent enquiries to the support staff at My Heritage confirmed this.We have for many years run a vintage version of Family Tree Maker using a network share as a repository for the files. This will not work with FTB, owing, we think, to the programs inability to create files/folders on said share.There is a workaround however, very messy, but it can be done.The local machine that you use creates a folder/directory that stores all the information needed for the program to produce your project. We create a new folder/directory on the local drive called MyHeritage, and change the default path in the program, Tools\Options\General to point to this folder.The program will then move all projects to this new folder.Each project will contain all information, photos, reports etc under the heading of the project.So if you create a Project named YYYYY100 for instance, all the information the program needs will be in this folder.If you do the same on a subsequent machine you will be able to copy this folder between machines. We provide access from one machine to another to do this, but the simple way is to copy the folder to a memory stick and do it that way.The trick is knowing which folder is up to date !!! I said it was messy.The other thing to bear in mind is the size of the folder being transferred. We have one with 700 entries photos, reports etc, which weighs in at 58Mb !
This can be reduced a little by emptying the Trash folder, and deleting/moving any PDF files in the Reports folder. Something that should be done on a regular basis we feel.
Not an elegant solution I will agree, it would be much better if it were fully networkable, but that's how it is at present.
Then there are the problems with record locking etc for multiple users on the same file, as this program runs on what I term a proper database, not a collection of information.
I am not being clever here, this is all information gleaned from Esther Shuman at Heritage, who has been most helpful regarding this.I do have to say that we are trying to do something here that most users would not even give a thought to, not having the facilities that we seem to have to hand.I also have to say that over 3 weeks I have found this program to be excellent in all respects, apart from the photo handling being a bit flakey, far in advance of any other that I have used, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
And it is FREE, not many things you can say that about these days !!
Thanks; that clarifies that the situation is pretty locked in. I'm considering using a cross-computer synchronizer such as "Dropbox" to keep the two folders mutually synched; this should take care of the problem.
I keep a full copy of my tree data and pictures on my laptop for backup purposes as well as so I can take my tree with me to family reunions. I use a free utility called Karen's Replicator for this. The convenience somes in since once it's set up there I just run that copy job and I don't have to remember which folders. I have two copy jobs, one to the laptop from the desktop computer and one from the laptop to the desktop computer. I use the former most of the time and only use the latter if I make any changes to the data on the laptop.
This does not allow me to run FTB on both computers at the same time and in fact I have to make sure it's not running when I run the copy job.
I am not familar with dropbox, but if that is what it is designed to do then it should work. I think I would create a dummy project of 10 persons or so, with as many items of information as can be managed before I committed anything serious to it. But you have already thought of that no doubt.
As Roger described very well, we do not support using a network to run Family Tree Builder. As well, we do not suggest for a user to use two different computers to update their tree in Family Tree Builder. Since they will not be synchronized, it can cause much confusion.
We appreciate the concerns and suggestions that we have gleaned from your questions, and I will make sure to pass them on to the appropriate department.
In FTB, there is no selection for the Chinese language. I can input Chinese into FTB since my computer has the language installed. Once I publish, however, it comes out as gibberish on the website. Do I have to change the encoding of the site or is there a way to make it permanent so all users can see it without having to change the settings on each person's computer individually?
