The fixes in the software are released with new versions. There was no new version released for FTB 6.0, so the current version you will download will not include any fixed issues and bugs.
The next version should hopefully be released in the next couple of months.
I am not familiar with the exact details of your problem, but if you are eager to go back to the FTB 6.0 version, you can try installing it again. It is very rare that users that used FTB 6.0 had to go back to the previous version. Perhaps there was a problem with specific data structure of your project that has since changed and now it would be ok.
If you choose to try it again, you should make sure to backup your project, so whatever happens you will have a rollback version. This FAQ explains how to make a backup for your project:
My Smart Matches almost always disappear when I close and restart FTB. The Smart Match button is still there in the summary view of the person but when I click on it the Smart Match list view says there are no Smart Matches. Then, when I go back to the summary view the Smart Match button is gone. I have talked with FTB support about this in the past but there didn't seem to be a way to resolve it then. If there is a way to reset mine like you did for Jason that would be wonderful.
I'm a new user with the same "issue" - however, I think what I may want is a feature -- the SmartMatches only appears once and then disappears. This seems to assume that I have the time to focus on the Matches when I see them. It would be a much more useful feature if they didn't "go away" but instead remained "pending" until I manually dismissed them.
The 'smart match' function is the reason we chose this program over ancestry.com, but if I only have access to the matches once, or have to request a manual reset, it's not as helpful as it could be. I would like time to contact the other parties, and time to research the possible connections more thoroughly, before they've disappeared. A feature that allows me to save the smartmatches would be fantastic.
We'll be purchasing the premium subscription later on today, and I can understand if the ability to reset, store and categorize smartmatches was a paid-for perk.
I have a large tree that includes many notable people that get matched on an all to often frequent basis. So when you send me notices of all the smart matches you want me to confirm (they number in the 1000's), the ones I really care about get lost. I'd like to see a check box for each person that once I check it, I want to be notified if anyone matches it. These would typically be at the edges of my tree or people for whom I'm looking for more information. Please allow me to uncheck it once I am ready to move on.
Another match on Constantine or the kings/ queens of Europe is irrelevent and if they are depending on my tree as an authoritative source they are missing the point. I've done my best to make heads or tails of history - spent way too much time in wicapedia but that is anything but an authoritative source.
MyHeritage gives their users the choice to make use of several functions and one of these is the Smart Match™ function. The Smart Matches™ are generated when you make a change in your family tree and publish this to your website. The data will then be compared with approximately 24 million other family trees at MyHeritage. When a smart match is found you, the webmaster, will be updated . If you do not want to receive anymore smart matches with a specific tree or person you can use the "ignore" function.
We are aware of the fact that the system is not flawless. A new mechanism for calculating Smart Matches is already in our developer's hands and on the road map as part of the Smart Match improvements. It's much more robust than our current system. I'm not making any promises about time frames for release of this new system - there is still a lot to understand about the scope of the project before we can define and promise a time - but I thought you would be interested to know it's in the works.
Something like that would be nice. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be interested in doing Smart Matches well at all. They can't do it in a way that pleases everybody so they don't do it in a way that pleases anybody.
I imported a gedcom from Ancestry to start a fresh project that I'm helping my friend with. The tree has around 800 people, and the duplicate checker came up with around 100 duplicates. Some of these have 3 of the same person, all with different amounts of information and people attached to them (for instance-each of the 3 have grandchildren, just not alll on the same one). Is there an "easy" way to attempt to correct this?
I hope this makes sense...I'm really confused and overwhelmed trying to figure this out.
I have been spending LOTS of time adding census data to individual records. A really nice option would be to offer to add the same fact to other family members - say bring up a pick list of close family members to whom the fact could apply (parents and children and maybe grandparents) Make it smart enough to only present names of living family members. That would considerably speed the process of adding census data.
A similar feature: apply a single citation to many facts. If I cite an obituary that contains date of birth, date of marriage, date came to that state, etc. etc. I'd sure like to be able to have a way to copy that entire citation to each fact instead of having to repeat it line by frustrating bloody line!
What I finally wound up doing with obits and other multi-fact sources is put them into the Citation Tab and then in the Fact Description put "See Citation Tab" but I'll probably regret that the next time I print a report.
