I have never been married .. but just got 3 kids with two men, but when I add them as fathers to my children they automaticly comes up as my husband... And I have tried to change it, but it will not change..
But you should be able to choose other things than beeing married or partner. People do not have to be married today when they get children, and if the three should be right, you should be able to put in everything that is right..
I don't know if this helps, but if you and your "partner"/"partners" are showing side by side, there should be a marriage details rectangular box underneath both people which links to the respective children. Double click on this box, (don't use Edit in this particular situation), at the bottom of marriage details, under Status:, you have the choice of: Married, Divorced, Separated, Widowed, Engaged, Partners, Friends, Anulled, Unknown, Other.
Either one of the last 2 should solve your problem.
Hello - I'm running Windows 7 with family Tree Builder version 5 (the current version). It has been working for some time, but yesterday the program would not run, giving the runtime error. I downloaded the version again and reinstalled but the error continued.
I wanted to split my large tree into 3 trees, so I copied the main tree for 1 tree and copied and uploaded the same tree for a third tree to delete the thirds from each tree. I am unfamiliar with this program and beginning to become frustrated.I make changes in the builder and then I publish, not sure if these are both on the web because I can use builder without an internet connection.
I cannot change the name of the one of the projects (the project has a bunch of numbers because I think I tried to generate it twice) because it says error that the name cannot be changed and to make sure a that the folder of the project is not in use. I think I screwed up and have something hidden.
I've just downloaded and activated FTB 22.214.171.1248. Whenever I try to run the program it launches the 'new project' but as soon as I complete the wizard (either importing or cancelling) FTB crashes:
Problem Event Name:BEX
Fault Module Name:StackHash_33fd
Fault Module Version:0.0.0.0
Fault Module Timestamp:00000000
Additional Information 1:33fd

Additional Information 4:ff653c6efb843e40530d266f2b169b95
Running Windows 7 32-bit, (installed on non 'C' drive). When I look for the main.cfg file mentioned in some other posts, it doesn't exist. My Roaming profile cfg folder only contains a ChartNew.cfg file.
I had to move the FTB software and data to a new computer. Took a full backup of my project. Installed the software and made a restore. Everything worked fine until I noticed name and facts where missing in FTB, but it is still there when publishing the data so it's not gone. Smart matches does not work for some people even if they are newly added. All new persons data added are always visible. I thought of retyping everything (then it shows) but there must be some fix to this, and I'm using the fully updated 126.96.36.1998 version. Any ideas?
Can you please check what languages you have set for your tree in Family Tree Builder?
Please go to the Tools menu > Languages.
Note that there are three options here, the Display language, Primary Language and Secondary Language. You will need to have the appropriate languages selected.
If you originally entered your data in one language, and no longer have that language selected as one of your data entry languages, then you will not see that information that you entered in that original language.
If you would like your information to be in a different language than what you originally entered it in, then select the original language as your primary data language, and the new one as the secondary one. Then go to Tools menu -> Translation Wizard to translate the names to the Secondary Language. Why must you do this? The original entry of data for the Primary Language must be “translated” or converted into the Secondary Language. The Translation Wizard is a fast and effective way to do so.
Thank you! That worked for me to change to Swedish as primare and english as secondary (as it actually was before). The only question know is "Smart matches does not work for some people even if they are newly added" and I know for sure that there is a match?
