Thanks for a very nice web-inar yesterday about FTB. Allthough I consider myself to be among the yesterdays 14% advanced users, even I found a function that I had not thought about. It was an interesting hour and I wish you all good luck for coming web-inars, I will sure attend them.
By the way, here in Spain I had excellent sound and picture, well done.
Try laborate with windows printer settings. Search something in printer setup as: "print as raster page". Simply, disable using TrueType or build-in fonts, and force printer to print "as blind" only fully rastered page.
I am sorry I misled you . I should not have used the word "print" .
The descendant report page when generated within Family Tree Builder already has the ( ????? ????? ) wherever chinese characters should have been. ie the problem is there before printing. So yes this is a bug in the s/w.
Is the fulll installer version different from the update version ? Will installing full FTB version wipe out my current data? I think I had better backup/export the. ged file before reinstalling cd version.
The CD version is basically the same. Has same installer, same kernel. But, have additionaly direct build-in all possible graph templates and components for offline graph creating. So is bigger (cca 80MB instead 35MB). And, this is version, contained on original CD/DVD, that you can obtain from MH as paid medium.
Yes, backup is everytime good thing, but in this case will be no data touched, as the version/build will be not changed/upgraded. Only, will be updated few components.
Best backup is, in menu File - Backup project, and then in wizzard use checkbox for include photos too. This provide really full local backup. You can of course make additional GEDCOM export, but this may not contain photos and special proprietal MH data (as must be universally compatible with foreign products).
Example: you do not know when a person died, so in death fact you type in ">1801" or "After 1801" since this is the last record of the individual (if you type ">1801" FTB will change this automatically to "After 1801").
In the tree view you will now see the person "Died: After 1801"
Now, if you change view to the father/mother of this person, a short description the person will be visible right below. The death fact will now be seen as "~1801". This is of course wrong. ~ are the same as "About" not "After" or "Before".
I have sent screenshots directly to support at myheritage dot com since adding attatchments are not working in the forum at the moment.
Edit: the email with screenshots and this report are ticket #2013052010002702
Someone a while back complained of an inability to format the front page.
Please check here ( www.graysgoingback.myheritage.com ) to see some things that are possible and easy.
The welcome message won't take much in the way of HTML, but does like in all its forms.
Colored text and various font styles are simple. Type them in your favorite word processor, copy them, then paste into the welcome messge editor and click save. Most work just fine, and if anything looks bad just redo it.
The online version keeps telling me I have 3 new record matches (which turns out to be 47 matches in 4 collections; their programmers never could count). They're all garbage, as always. I've repeatedly rejected them one by one but there's no "Make it so" or "Save" or "OK" control to confirm the rejections and they keep coming back. And clicking "Reject" for any collection with only a single record gives you this incredible message:
Reject all these Record Matches, and much more...
Choose your plan for accessing your Record Matches and billions of records on MyHeritage
So today I decided to click "Reject All" to get rid of the ten WikiTree matches. To my amazement, I got to the splash screen for buying a data subscription to WVR, with the same incredible message for bulk rejection.
Yes, they want me to pay to reject the crap and stop the nuisance messages. It never ends!
It would be better if, when flashing up a figure of £5.76 to obtain Record Matches, andwhen one is already on the Premium Plus system, that the next page does not show that the cost will be £82.76! This is a nonsense, and irritating.
The Record Matches that came up were of no value, the data was already known, and one of them was erroneous. I am sure that my cousin would be surprised if she woke up one morning and discovered thsat the man next to her was a Texan, and not the languid Brit she was used to!
In V6 of the family tree builder we indeed forwarded our customers to our partner company World Vital Records. This was the decision that was made mainly because during that time we still didn't develop our own system to search through the records effectively. In v7 we have fixed this and pointed to our record matches system.
When you get forwarded to our partner company your data subscription is not valid there, because they have their own subscription system.
So it is not really a bug, but more of an out-dated design (which is another reason to upgrade and stick to the newer version).
