I have rejoned My Heritage on Premium membership and updated to V7 so I now can update and record Smart Matches in FTB and on Web and Sync between both.
The algarythim for Smart Matching stiil need some tweaking to improve quality.
The fact you can copy detail from matching smart matched persons whilst on web is great, although only for the primary person, if you click on aditional information I.E. for spouse, parents, and children copy dose not work, you still need to have FTB open to toggle back too, and manually add these details on FTB.
Fix this and my greats could change to excellents.
thank you for the message. Please go to Control Panel - on your computer and check if you installed FTB. Then right click on the icon FTB in the Folder on your computer where you installed it -> create shortcut and then move it to the desktop.
To add people I usually go to add "father" or "mother".Several of the Fathers have the same names as their sons/daughters so when added the birth/ death details all end up being the same as the last "father" added .
In Family Tree Builder, there is a function that automatically fills in details at the time you are typing. It tries to anticipate what you might be typing in order to save you time. It's called auto fill and many software/websites use it.
Could this be what is happening? You start typing J O H and then the program automatically fills in JOHN DOE before you finish?
If this is the case all you need to do is ignore the automatic fill in and keep typing what you want. I hope this helps you.
Thank you for your prompt reply. But no that is not what I mean . Its not the name that is causing the problem but if I put in "Thomas Samuel ? " and his death at say feb12 2012 when I go to put in his grandfathers name which is also "Thomas Samuel" death date june 6 1915, then both death dates will end up as the same date either the grandson or the granddads but not as the ones they should be. Thanks for all your efforts in trying to solve this for me.
I have moved the folder 'MyHeritage' from default location 'C:\Users\Username\Documents\' to a new location 'C:\Users\Username\Google Drive\Documents\'. After using it for a couple of times I noticed all my private notes was missing.
Using Family Tree Builder from more than one computer isn't recommended. Family Tree Builder files are stored locally on your computer, which means any changes you make from a different location won't be automatically updated to your current family tree project.
If you want to work between, say a laptop and a PC, you can do so but you'll have to move the whole family tree project from computer to computer each time you want to work. And you should always publish from one computer - choose the one you're using most often.
If you really want to work from several computers, the ideal solution is to work on your tree directly from your family site. If you're interested in doing that, I have a tool that can switch the tree you already have published to your family site into one that can be edited online.
HI, I would like to work on my family tree on both a PC and a laptop. The PC is upstairs and the laptop I use at home is kept down stairs. To save time and my family going up stairs I could show them what I have done on my laptop down stairs. To which I cannot do this. I did however, download the free program on the laptop, but when it load up the tree was blank and I would have had to start from scratch. By the way, I did not type anything on the laptop, there is still the basic program.
I have been all through the help looking for a way of doing this but faild. Please help. If it not posable to use the laptop I will have to carry on doing my work on the PC upstairs.
We have used this program for a couple of years now without trouble, but for about one month ago a pop-up window - with some advise how to use the "Immersive Family Tree" - comes up every now and again, when we are moving around in the family tree!
It has not been necessary to have this advise before, and it is certainly not now. Anyone knows how to delete this pop-up window?
