I've just got this software within the last two weeks and am having lots of crashes with Windows 7 ultimate.
I mainly get errors when adding or editing photos but quite often the program just errors and kicks off an error and closes. It's very frustrating because to avoid loss of changes i have to save after every change i make, providing that isn't the change that makes it crash.
I followed the link in this thread but it goes nowhere so I guess that I have already downloaded the latest version?
I have just installed the 916 build, seemed more stable to start with but I got an error when trying to add a photo to a new military service fact. The photo select window opened up transparent, ie the window behind was visable and only the top window border bars. When I closed this window the program encountred an error and eventually windows closed it..
Hope that helps.
If there is a debug mode I can run the program in I will willingly do that.
I've been working with FTB for over a year, since version 3 or so, and I have over 500 persons in my database. One of the people has a name "Father of Bat-Sheva & Perl" -- note the '&' character in the name. When I tried to edit the person and change it FTB freezes and I must kill it thru Task Manager. Now I cannot edit ANY person in my tree AT ALL. It seems that trying to edit that person corrupted the database in some sense... HELP !!! please.
I´m in the same way as that man...I was working with the FTB from 3 days ago without any kind of error,and from the morning I was working at evening I couldn´t edit anything,also,I try to reinstall software but no changes in...all blocked.
If I try to edit anything,all options becomes blocked at all...but if I don´t try to edit members program leaves me to navigate throught it without problems,but if I try to edit...no error alert anywhere or messages...
I "fix" it...sometimes has passed after I post here...the way I fixed it all times it´s bugged I open new project (then could edit again) and after I return to open main project and then all works as ever...dunno why...thnks anyway!
I use(d) to publish the whole thing met the pictures on my primary family site, that is (was) no problem. But, in parallel with that, i also publish some branches (extracts) on different family sites to give separate access to the chosen family members. So, in that case i don't want to publish all the pictures twice. I know that i can manually choose which picture is being uploaded along with the albums, but it remains some problems: many people are common to different branches, and so on...
My second problem is that since version 4 (184.108.40.2066) i cannot publish any tree anymore... It always gives a C error without warning! I have then to copy my whole database on a computer with version 3.0. that can publish my tree (that's a chance!) , but it doesn't recognise the already published tree, or the pictures... So it begins from scratch and I override my "premium" capacity... I have first to delete the tree and picutres on MyHeritage, and re-publish all the pictures...
Third problem is for my "parallel" trees... I think you can choose that only the pictures with related people on the tree are to be publish... but it also publish ALL THE PICTURES that are NOT linked to any person... So I have had to manually delete about 100 pictures on the site, only to keep some... (i did this only once...)
That's the main reasons why I don't want to publish the complete pictures, and why i find the thumbnails more than sufficient.
So i return you the question: why isn't it possible to publish only the "faces" without the pictures?
