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?

Hallo liebes myheritage.com team.
Ich habe ein kleines Problem was ich nicht genau verstehe. Ich habe mir ein Alles in allem Diagramm erstellt. würde es auch gerne ausdrucken. Mein Problem ist nun das da so viel Luft dazwischen ist das es viel zu groß wird. Die Luft dazwischen ist auch unnötig, wenn man es "richtig" macht könnte man die hälfte sparen. wenn ich nun versuche das ganze zu verschieben ... schiebt er nicht einen block sondern einzeln. Dies geschieht aber nicht bei allen gleich. so ist es wenn ich denn man schiebe eine sache wenn ich die frau verschiebe schiebt sich der mann mit usw. es währe sehr viel einfacher wenn man einen ganzen block ...Geht das und ich mache es nur falsch?
you are referring to charts created from an offline tree in the Tamily Tree Builder.
If you want to change postions of individuals in a chart (this does not only apply to the all-in-one chart) then you have to plan this "strategically".
You have to consider that when you move the position of a husband, then also the profiles of his wife and his descendants are moved as a block. If you choose to move the position of the wife then the position of the husband remains unchanged whereas her descendants are moved along with her. Children without husband/wife or descendants are moved individually. It will not be an easy task to change persons to desired positions - but it is feasible; anyway, you will have to do some strategic planning as said above.
du beziehst Dich hier offensichtlich auf die Diagrammerstellung aus einem offline-Stammbaum aus dem Family Tree Builder.
Wenn du Personen verschieben willst (und das gilt nicht nur für das "Alles-in Einem"-Diagramm), dann musst Du strategisch vorgehen.
Du musst bei Deiner Vorgehensweise berücksichtigen, dass beim Verschieben eines Ehemanns auch die Ehefrau und die Nachkommen mit verschoben werden, als Block. Verschiebt man nur die Position der Ehefrau, so bleibt die Position des Ehemanns unverändert, während die Postionen der Nachkommen mit verändert werden. Kinder ohne Partner oder Nachkommen werden individuell verschoben. Es ist also machbar, wenn auch nicht einfach, Personen an die gewünschten Positionen zu verschieben; auf jeden Fall muss man strategisch planend vorgehen, wie eingangs erwähnt.
nun das stimmt aber es sollte doch einfacher zu machen sein. ein beispiel währe das man sich einen block der verschoben werden soll mit der maus aussucht (linke maustaste gedrückt halten und über die personengruppe ziehen) und die dann an die stelle schiebt wo man sie haben möchte
With the number of people I have in my data base, I find that sharing the information with sub-groups in my family is too cumbersome. Is there an easy way where I can create a new tree with all descendants from a single starting point?
Now another person (me) creates a family tree that includes the husband. I ask the husband for his email address and he gives the same email@example.com address. I enter it against him and then publish my tree. In the published tree the husband will now show with most of the wifes details from her tree !!!!!!!!!!
Obviously the email address was registered first for the wife so gets confused when it is later used for the husband in another tree.
You can enter the same email for two people in their contact information in FTB, but you not on the site. This is because email addresses that are entered on the site associate a member with their account.
Accounts at MyHeritage.com are created using a person’s email address as the unique log in for that account.
Two different accounts cannot share the same log in.
It is necessary to invite each member with a different email address.
We know that many couples share the same email address. We are sorry, but cannot make exceptions in this case.
But I had no idea the wife of the person had used the same email address and created her own tree.
I understand that there needs to be a unique email into MyHeritage. The problem is that you can still use the same email in two family trees run by different people. Maybe there should be a warning or an error to stop this happening. It does not look right when the male had the details of his wife in my tree. The details in someone elses tree should not effect mine.
The only way I have been able to get around it is to move the email address to the wife.
If you have a person who has more than 1 spouse then all the reports in FTB show these spouses in the wrong order. Here is an example......
1. AAAAAA BBBBB [CCCCC] was born on Mar. 29, 1962 in Auckland, New Zealand.She married 1st DDDDD EEEEEE on Feb. 21, 1987 in Ellerslie, Auckland, 1051, New Zealand. She married 2nd FFFFF GGGGGG on Nov. 1, 1981 in Auckland, 1051, New Zealand.
The reports should list the marriages in chronological order.
Are you sure that you selected the correct status for each of these spouses? The problem might be that they are both listed as married, so you might have to change the status of the ex-spouse to divorce or something else.
I would like to participate in this topic, if i may... I noticed a similar behaviour. Mister and misses A and B are maried. Both have an ex-partner. In mister A I manage the spouses, by clicking the button with the green arrow "the last maried spous is now the current one". Save the changes, FTB is showing the correct partner. I do the same for Misses B. Save and exit the edit window. Now, when looking at the screen (both mister and Ms A and B are the main persons) mister A is showing with ex-spouse C first, and under Ms C you see Ms B. On the other side, Ms B is showing first Mr A, then Mr D. Iow, Ms B is OK, Mr A is not OK. Ms B is active (bold frame around here info), and the correct children are showing underneath.
The funny part is that when I edit Mr A, and manage spouses, I click the green button again, and Ms B is the current spouse again. I save, and see that the info on the card from Ms B has changed.... Now Mr D is on top, followed by Mr A. Still the correct child info is showing. If I activate the father of Ms B, I see that his daughter Ms B is listed as maried with Mr D, allong with the children they have. This is wrong, since Mr A is the current spouse. I can go back and edit Ms B, but saving the info will result in that the info in the card of Mr A becomes wrong again....
I hope you understand what I am trying to explain here :o).
