Is it possible that you're using the family tree photos Screen saver in Family Tree Builder?
If yes, you can turn it off in Family Tree Builder. Open the program and click on Tools > Options. In the Screen saver section, click on the YES next to "Use MyHeritage.com Screen saver" to change it to NO.
I am wondering if there are setting or plans to increase the level of security with FTB
My examples are
Living people are shown on web as Living and Real Surname. Other s/ware has the ability to show Living - Living (fn- sn) options.
I have made some matches with other trees by simply guessing the names (traditions) plus online archive search of national newspapers.... After I made the smart match > I was then able to get the images etc.
When the website is updated with a source upload....the webpgase shows the update and also shows the new documents/images loaded to the site. In my case, some of these are living people... Can we pls have a setting where the documents attached with living people are not shown to all and sundry??
I wonder if there is a way to pull out a section of a large family tree in a format that could then be emailed to someone for purposes of that person using the file to begin creation of a new family tree. I have been unable to locate anything in the user guide or help files.
Or is there some way that this can be accomplished from the web site?
I have been using the webbased family tree builder for som time, but now I downloaded the Family tree builder, and wants to build/organize my family there, is there anyway I can download my work from webpage and into the Family tree builder or do I need to all the work again?
And if so, are there any chances of duplicates etc once I publish it?
Hope for some answer
Thanks in advance

Why do some of my persons in the familytree appear as "unknown" on my familypage, when they are certainly known and namegiven in my familytree? Has any one got the same problem or any solution on mine?
I get "Unknown" instead of the name when I upload GEDCOM files exporter from the Family Tree Builder v 5.1 software or publish directly from it. Very annoying. Could it be a bug specific for the Swedish version of the FTB?
Jag ser att Du haft samma problem som jag nu har med namn som faller bort på familjesidan på nätet och ersätts med "Okänd". Till och med mina barn har nu blivit "Okända". Men i familytree-builer på min dator är allt intakt. Uppdaterar men ingenting förändras. För varje vecka som går förlorar jag fler och fler namn. Märkligt!! Jag har försökt få support och svar på olika sätt och länken som Du, och många andra fått går bara till svensk FAQ där jag inte kunnat hitta svaret. Har du lyckats bli av med problemet? Tacksam för tips!
I allso have this problem. Very annoying! And I too have the swedish version. I have tryed to click the link You gave, but it goes to a FAQ in swedish where I cant find the thread You recomended. Please! Can You help me? My familypage is http://www.myheritage.se/site-family-tree-64831611/uvemark
I've been setting nationalities for my ancestors... There doesn't appear to be the option for Scotland?.. I can see there are options for England, United Kingdom and Ireland in the drop down list but there's no 'Scotland'.. herumph!
Is this something that can be corrected in the next release of a program update please as my patriotic Scottish ancestors will be turning in their graves!
If you look at soccer there is no UK team. Only England, Scotland, Walse and I believe Nothern Ireland.
Sometimes it can be difficult to describ a nationality if the country does not exist any more or its borders has changed. Europe has gone thru big changes thru the centuries. It can be difficult to place i.e a city in Pommern which was where Poland is now and belonged to Germany some time and during other times was occupied by Sweden. Where shall you place the city? In Poland, Germany or Sweden... it depends on when you place the city.
Exactly, more or less, so. I handle it in several ways and not always consistently. For instance, many of my ancestors were born, lived and died and I myself was born in Indonesia when it was the Dutch or Netherlands East Indies and Jakarta was Batavia. So I usually record (Batavia) Jakarta, Java, (Netherlands Indies) Indonesia. If I don't, I mention somewhere that Jakarta used to be Batavia. On my husband's side the family came from border regions between Russia, Poland, Rumania, etc. From the time they left the old country and petitioned for US citizenship the region could have changed hands several times. I have official documents on which the country of birth is called 'Poland Russia'. This is what keeps us humble regarding immutability and consistency, for even the programmers at myHeritage cannot accommodate this kind of change and inconsistency.
Is it possible to block SMART-MATCHES from family sites which have thousands of relatives; and/or block requests for SMART-MATCHES whch don't have very high probablities/percentage of matching relatives such as under 70%.
Just I keep getting requests for matching where name might be same but 3 to 4 different generations apart.
