Ever since I downloadedn the latest version (22.214.171.12409), the width of my ID column wont stay fixed. For example, if I go to do a smart search, when I come back to my tree, the column width of my id numbers has shrunk back to only display 3 digits and my tree has ove a 1000 entries. How can I make the column width of the ID numbers stay fixed, so I don't always have to widen it?
This program was obviuosly designed by people who have no concept of step-sibling and the reality that people get divorced and re-married as well as people having children out of wedlock. This program listed my half-brothers as cousins and that's just the start:( I thought this would be a great idea when I stumbled on the software, but after a few hours of frustration, I can honestly say it's worthless:(
Please help... my last computer recently died and I had to buy a new one. Now when I log into my family tree, all the living members that I had locked for privacy, are showing up as 'Unknown" and I can not edit anything at all. How do I get this information back into my tree and get back into the main part of the tree building that allows me to edit and add to my tree please. Thanls in advance.
Wow - this takes away all my power to decide! This can't be right. I would suggest this is an urgent fix required in the software otherwise this is open to a abuse (I could make Steve Jobs a member of my site and he has no say in it?).
I am surprised there has not been an outcry about this in this era on internet democracy.
It is possible to merge two family tree projects in Family Tree Builder.
In order to merge trees one of them will have to be exported to GEDCOM file format.
Please note that there is currently no tool in place to detect duplicates and fuse them together. This means that you will need to detect duplicates manually. This can be done by sorting alphabetically, and then deleting them.
You can read about how to merge two trees on Family Tree Builder here.
Thanks Lior. Using FTB (which I have) is not an option for us as we have copious photos attached to individuals. Did I read somewhere that MyHeritate is developing more advanced sifting and merging software, that uses smartchmatch technology to detect duplictes and ask before importing?
There is SO much duplicated work out there on trees that this is going to become essential.

In order to solve the issue, please delete the duplicate photos from your family photos album.
In order to do so, please first, enter your fanily site > settings > content > check in the box for "photo albums" > save.
Now the tab "photos & videos" will appear on the upper bar of your family site > please enter this tab > go to your name in the list of the tagged people > click on your name > open the duplicate photos > click "x" button in order to delete the photo.
I would like to have some advice to fix a problem that I have with my project:
Of some unknown reason my original project have been saved into two different ones - how do I integrate the content of the extra unwanted project into my original one without anything getting deleted? I know I of course could write alle the info into the project manually, but I hope that this not would be needed.
