Thank you for writing to us.
Here is how you can delete those extra custom facts:
Please close Family Tree Builder and then go on your computer to MyDocuments > MyHeritage > Your Project name > And into the cfg folder (make sure that you are browsing all file types).
There you will see the project.cfg file. Right click on it and edit it in notepad. Search for those custom facts. Delete those lines. Then save the file.
I am not referring to the web site. I cannot open a pdf unless I am signed on as administrator on my PC. WHen I sign on my PC as a non administrator everything works except opening a pdf that has been attached as a photo fact. Photos (jpgs for example work correctly). It seems that permissions are not working properly
Why do you talk about being administrator when you use Family Tree Builder...? Do you mean administrator on the PC?
When you install a program in windows where you have multiple user profiles you can as administrator choose to install the program for all users or only for your user profile. Please try to install Adobe Reader for the user you log in as.
I have Adobe Acrobat Pro installed and Adobe reader(version 9.4). I am able to open pdf files except from within FTB. I modified the permissions of Adobe Reader and Acrobat after your reply to try and get FTB to open the pdf file. I wasn't able to make it work.
FYI - I signed on (to the PC) as administrator, created a new FTB project file and added a pdf as photo fact and was able to open the file
I am new to the FTB program and just imported all of my photos and am in the process of associating them to the various people in my file. My question is, can I highlight several photos (by holding down the Crtl button) and associate them all at the same time to the one person, instead of going through each photo to associate it to a person?
If you go on your site to Photos and Videos > Tag people, then you will see groups of pohotos that re recognized as certain people, and you can confirm the suggestions, and tag multiple people at once.
I can not find a way from the picture album. But if you edit a person from the tree, and select pictures you can select pictures and associate them. I do not no if this is a better way of doing it. From the picture album then you edit the picture and associate a person you can mark/tag the persons face in the picture.
i am having trouble in family tree builder i could go to matches then merge then it would do so but i cant do it now wounder if that is happening to any one else and if so is there anyway to fix it it saves a lot of typing regards Denise
I have just checked my version of FTB and it says Version 18.104.22.1683. When I goto tools --> check for updates, it says that my current version is fully up-to-date. Why is it saying this if there is version 1198 available?
If one individual has children from two partners, here is what you should do: Add the previous partner and the current partner to the individual. Then add the children to the correct parents. The children from the previous relationship will appear as half siblings of those from the current relationship of the individual.
This is now the second time that I experienced that the computer freezes when I want to open a certain tree. A few weeks ago I started a new tree, but left it empty. The software always froze the entire computer. Yesterday I started a new tree, but I was not even given a chance to add a person. The software (current FTB version on Windows 7) works fine with other trees, but it seems to have trouble handling empty trees. Is this issue known and is there a fix for it?
