I'm using the family tree builder and i have a specific question about generating diagrams.
If i generate a diagram it is possible that the diagram should generate the same branch several times.
For example: person A has parents B and C, if you go back in time for several generations, then B and C seem to have ancestors in common. So that means if you generate an ancestor chart of person A, one or more identical branches should be shown. No my problem is, the family tree builder does not deduplicate the identical branches, that means that the ancestors of person C are not shown because they are already in the diagram (as ancestors of person B).
Is there a way to generate the diagram where all the branches are shown and identical branches are deduplicated? That makes the diagram more complete.
I have entered address information (street, city and date) for subjects in the Contact tab. I will like to export the entries into a CSV file and subsequently upload that to googlemaps. Have you any ideas how I can do that?
I know I can export most entries if I generate an Export Custom Report. The problem is address entries can not be selected and/or are not included in the CSV export like other entries.
I know I can export an address listing if I generate an Addess Report. The problem is only RTF, PDF and HTML are supported and not CSV. Secondly the listing does not include address date.
I know I can bypass the problem if I use other entries for address information. I have tested that successfull with the Education entries in the Info tab. However that of course make other reports look odd when an education is listed as the name of a city.
I like to build a report which has the Description field from all the facts. That field is very useful to focus the type of the fact. I have used this field for the precise place of birth/death/marrige, the Place field includes just the city and the country.
Now I like to check all the people in my tree, this would be easier job to do if you have a report in Excel. I tried to do mine from Reports -> Export custom report... -> Selected fields, but it doesn't show the Descriptions.
