I believe the the issue you are dealing with is that the album you use for black and white photos is actually the "Family tree photos" album. This is the album where photos from your Family Tree Builder tree are published every time you publish the family tree.
This means that if you delete the photos and then do work in this album, all the work you did will be overwritten the next time you republish.
What you should do is create a new album for the black and white photos. Drag them into the new album. Then continue to work on the black and whites from this new album.
Rename the other album to "Family Tree Builder photos" or something similar and remember that each time you publish the photos from your tree are placed here.
I'm currently using the free version of Family Tree Builder and when I go in to try to edit details on a person the "OK" and "cancel" buttons are not there and I am unable to save any changes that I make such as birth dates, death dates etc. I have expanded the box to make sure that I hadn't inadvertantly blocked out the" OK" & "cancel" buttons, but no matter how large I make the box they are just not there. I even tried opeing the 'Sample' gedcom that comes with FTB and it doesn't have the "OK" & "cancel" buttons either! I only have 34 family members on my tree. Does anyone have any suggestions please?
I know that right now 2 parents are needed , but this is not real realistic.
Alot of people are single parents, alot of kids have no idea who the other parent is.
Also like in my situation I know both of my parents but they were never married so I should not need to add them as married.
This really should be fixed to be a realistic tree.
I agree with you 100%. There are many and varied types of parents with and without spouse or partners. The children many times live with and are supported by non parental partners of one of the parents. There has to be a "realistic" way to indicate these relationships. Computers and software, contrary to what some people think, have no feelings. People do!!
I know the thing about having to show both parents is kind of weird, but think about it in terms of genealogy. If there is a child, there is always a man and woman. (except in one case, depending on what you believe ;)) If I were a researcher looking at your tree, I would see "holes" in the tree where the second parent was left out.
So in genealogy terms the correct way to record the family tree is always to include the mother or father, even if there was no relationship between the parents.
Please find the attached snap shot of my problem description. In the figure, Mr. Rajendra singh has 2 wives (Sumathi singh is 1st wife; Ahsmi singh is 2nd wife). In the horiz/verti chart, the positioning of wives are interchanged. As we extend the tree, the successive trees are wrongly interpreted. Where as in fan chart its properly arranged. If the order of spouses are changed in FTB to suit horiz/verti layout, then the FAN chart would show the wrong arrangement. Is there any fix for this issue.

Now I have imported and all the photos have been imported, they are not showing with the relevant people.
I have clicked on them and then where it says add persons they are already showing and some with the line across the top left.BUT they are not with that person in the Tree, what do I need to do now to get them to show with their name in the family tree list
i have set up my family tree the other day and it did not keep my daughter on the chart, i didn't see where to put sisters and brothers for myself and parents. now i don't see any button to ADD anyone else in my tree. not quite sure what i am doing wrong.
