Noen andre som har testet mac-versjonen av Family Tree Maker?
La den inn og ble i utgangspunktet både glad og imponert. Men etter å ha generert en rapport fra mac-versjonen, oppdaget jeg at rapporten beskrev fødselsdatoer for mine barn på 1800-tallet, og barn som er høyst oppegående, ble beskrevet som død.
GIkk på en windows-versjon og testet det samme, og fikk der ut perfekt resultat.
I have just updated to V7 and discovered that my load time has gone fron 59/61 seconds to 232 seconds.
thats a four fold increase in loading-- I wonder if all the "advantages" with V7 might be lost if I revert to earlier version-- just becaue I will jot live long enough to complete my research at the speed of loading and re-write that I have experinced with V7.
Or am I out on a limb on my own here?
Do others experince slow read/ write .
Please tell me its not real--
I should tell you I have 61,000 people in my file That could be a warning to others - comeing along who have not gaot that many records== pehaps avoid large trees ( I Recall Jack the Swede in Spain making reference to a similar issue)
This is Correct. I have 206 600 records in my base at it took me 602 Seconds today (10 minutes and 2 seconds) to load the program AND I have it on a fast SSD-disc. I have an overclocket processor and 16 GB in RAM I have dedicated another 16 GB as virtual memory! It takes me about 5 minutes to add/edit a record. IMHO this program has to be rewritten from the start. Also I´m starting to get OOM:s (Out of memory errors, from the system) witch indicates high memory use or a memory leak somewhere. I can see that FRB uses 1 575 MB of the memory doing NOTHING, whist my oter DB-programs use 128 MB as a maximum even at work.
I also research dog pedigrees and use a similar program for that. In my DB i have over 500 000 dogs and it loads in 4-5 seconds and editing/adding records takes 1-2 seconds. That program does basically the same thing as FTB but without SmartMatching and things like the. Try the demo-version. http://www.tenset.co.uk/ba/index.html
Unfortunately this problem will get worse and worse. As I understand FTB is NOT based on a traditional DB-programming method but more as some kind of text editor.
The speed of the program is not just related to the version of the software. The program can be effected by a number of reasons such as the amopunt of people within the project, how many notes are attached to individuals, and photos within the project etc.
Also the software will be effected by available memory from your Pc. Should you have other programs running in the background that are using available RAM then this will also effect the speed of the FTB software and it is advised with such rich projects as yours to close these extra programs down whilst you work with the FTB software.
You may wish to also check that if you have any anti-virus software running that you have configured this to accept the FTB software so that it may run without interuption.
I have recently ( three days ago) reformatted my C drive.
When I run V6 FTB it loads in 69 secs.
I have no other programs running at the time of FTB load.
When I run V7 it takes 229 secs and it has loaded the pre-exixting databse created in V6.
So whilst I understand your orchestrated reponse- I thinlk, Given the parametres and history ( V6 v V7) from the SAME base under the SAMe conditions- whetr it loads notes, photos or the telephone book is not releveant-- V6 loads and V7 takes FOREVER.
Do you not agrres that V7 has not assisted me in my quest to achieve genealogical solice.
I think you nay need to advise me now on HOW I return to useing V6 as , IMHO, it is more efficent and more in keeping with my time on earth.
As I said earlier-- I wont live long enough to complete my genealogical studies if I use V7 in its current format.
If you read JACK's answer- he very much agrees with me, so are we the only TWO users in the myheritage group experiencing S L O W loading?
I think not. And I further ask-- has V7 REALLY been through a proper testing analysis BEFORE release-- it would apper to me to be flawed beyond reason.
Interested to hear the MH respnse. Over to You Dean!!
Thank you for your reply and I do understand your point of view.
As well as what I had already mentioned such wealthy projects like yours and Mr.Jacksons contain a great deal of information within notes and facts alon with photographs etc. The uploading of all of this data can also contribute to the loading speed of the project within the software.
This I have also come across personally within my own family tree when trying to generate a report within the software. The fact that I myself had for some people so much information within the notes it would cause the program to slow down. To get around this I went throught the lengthy notes I had accumulated for the specific individuals and condensed them to the important notes that need to appear and this did assist with the generation speed of the report.
It can be frustrating and I understand this and again I would like to reassure you that our users comments such as the points you have mentioned do not go unheard and we are constantly trying to improve the software as well as the online site.
I thank you again for your your patience and for your continued feedback of such problems.
I started creating a family tree a few years ago using Family Tree Builder and published it online. The last time I made any alterations to it was in 2011 but since then I have replaced my computer and have had to download and re-install Family Tree Builder. How can I download or copy the online version of my family tree back to the Family Tree Builder software on my PC so that I can continue developing the site?
I have added already a lot of persons in my family tree and just sometimes I have problem with importing date of death. That happens expecially when I have someone for example born in 1956 who died in 2002. The software shows me a message that the date of death must be afther the birth date. It is a nonsence. I tried to fix that in many ways...
If I suceed to import that date it is shown in the box but not in the short header. Look image in attachment. You can see the full birth date imported but under the name there is a ? instead the year of birth.
I found also in this case the date is imported by type: date as free text (datum kao slobodni tekst) and the system is not importing it by type: just date (samo datum). I mean...I do that but afther I edit the date again it is shown as free text.
It seams this is a software BUG.
And there is another BUG. Sometimes something go wrong with birth date and it seams to my has something to do with the month. It allways happen when I have April month. Maybe it is a coincidence, don't know. Take a look at the second image. You can see there is the full birth date visible but under the name there is no data about that.
Since uploaded images are not working I dont know if this is the case: FTB handle dates in just a few formats.
One format that allways works is I.E. "3 apr 1900". If I would use the modern swedish format for that: 1900-04-03 it can interpit that but would switch the day and month (will work for days after the 12th) and I cant display it in that format either. If you use any other format than the "official" I think you will get the ? and the calculations/controls will fail.
If you try to export data from FTB to excel it is not possible to handle early dates (-1900) in Excel so for that reason the format YYYY-MM-DD would be best to make it sortable as text.
Hi, I'm new to using Family Tree Builder and I had a question about how to add illegitimate children. In both cases the names of the fathers are known but when I add them as the children's father it automatically adds the mother as the father's spouse. How do I add two parents to a child but show that they were never married?
edit the relationship STATUS of the parents from DEFAU:LT= Married-- change to Partners or OTHER -- there are options from which you can select!
Thanks, I did change him to other but the man is still showing up as a relation through marriage to others in the family tree (e.g. my cousin's father is showing as my uncle despite not having married my aunt).
Thank you for your attention. It is not my case. All you told I understand but I add dates this way like in the image. SO no way that I do something wrong. I choose dates by dropdown and write the year manually off course.
In the last hour when I tried to sync or connect from FTB to my family site (at http://www.myheritage.com/site-240385321/site ) I get a message indicating that there is no family site and asking if I want to set one up.
Are other people seeing this, too? Is this a temporary glitch? Is there something I need to do to fix this?
I am moving all my data from present Windows 7 laptop to Windows 8. Application works fine on Windows 7. I just went to MyHeritage site and did a download/install of the application. The process started fine but got stuck. It has been stuck for over 5 mins. At present, the install process is showing:
Hello, again - Seems like the install finished successfully. It had me concerned that the process was just seeming to sit at a place for a very long while. I was not able to see any drive activity (I can't see any drive light on the new laptop) which made me think that the process was stuck. Soon after sending the call for help, I saw that the process finished. My next issue is exporting the database but that will be another thread if I need help. I am trying to see the documentation on MH on how to do that.
Hi! I've just imported a GEDCOM file, and have found that 'unknown' spouses are appearing at random places in charts; they don't show up in the tree entry for the people they're attached to, or their list of spouses, so I can't see how to delete them. Any suggestions for how to get rid of them?
