I'm using Windows 7. I don't see the virtual keyboard icon at all. Using the regular Windows keyboard options, I can input many characters, but I cannot input others. I mean they show up when I type then in, but they do not show up in the trees or lists. For example, I can type "Žukovica", but I cannot type "Pavlović." It just comes out as "Pavlovc." This problem occurs in both Windows 7 and XP.
I looked at the help forums, and it said in cases such as these to use the virtual keyboard. However, as I mentioned, in WIndows 7, the keyboard icond doesn't appear at all. In XP it does appear, but it only allows me to type in English. If I try to add Serbian or Croatian as an alternative language to my project, a message window pops up saying that "Serbian" or "Croatian" is not compatible with my current windows settings.
When I produce a book report it no longer includes the Paternal Ancestry family tree at the beginning of the report (or the maternal tree) which it used to in earlier versions of FTB. Is this a deliberate change in the report or do I need to do something to include this in the report?
Is it possibly to create multilingual report? I have first and second languages in my tree and can see it in the chart. I can export each language in a ged-file. But the report can be created only for the first language. Any suggesting, please?
In Family Tree Builder (FTB), most charts and reports can be produced in any of the 37 languages FTB supports. We don't have a report that can be produced in more than one language at a time though.
One exception is the Book Report, which is a third party software. The Book Report supports Catalan, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazilian and European), Spanish, and Swedish are also supported. Support for other languages will be added to future releases according to demand and the availability of volunteers to assist with the correct translations.
My great grandfather was adopted. I don't know anything about his real parents but I know the names of people that brought him up. I consider them as his parents. I entered this data into FamilyTree Builder. Everything's OK.
But on my FamilyTree Builder SITE my genealogy line is interrupted on my great grandfather and I can't go up in my tree.
Your reply on this topic is over a year old now, how soon will ths be fixed on on the webiste?
My tree also contains some adopted children, who carry the surnames of their adoptive parents. In FTB these display very well, but on site they're diconnected. Requesting their personal tree, results in a isolated sub-tree. An adopted child with no spouses or children of its own (yet) appears all forlorn.
To keep these persons in the family, visualy, I had to re-register them as natural childs.
I just saw that I chose the wrong thread in the forum. Our family tree ist an Online Family Tree with several active members, pictures etc. Therefore, there is now way for me to use the Family Tree Builder.
Now I discovered the thread "How do I add my mother on two seperate trees" dealing with adoption for Onlines trees. You wrote there, that adoption also will be possible in the online version in some months. Is there a date when it will be available?
