When I attempt to convert upload FTL files I get an error message 204.3. Why is this? Is there a size limit on files?
Have you had any luck with the conversion of your FTL file to Family Tree Maker? I had to do the opposite a couple of years ago because FTM would no longer accept my FTM file... but now it's FTL which no longer accepts my FTL file. So I would entertain going back to FTM.
Please be aware that FTM is not a MyHeritage software but Family Tree Builder (FTB) is.
May I please suggest you to first download the latest version of our software and try again to export your file?
You can download the software by going to the link http://www.myheritage.fr/family-tree-builder
If it still doesn't work, please send me your file by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
I had already done exactly that. FTB didn't accept my damaged FTL file however. And importing a previous (4-month-old) FTL working file resulted in a FTB file with usuable media... as it seems that for FTB to be able to display the included media (pictures, etc). depends on whether the media sources still are they were when the media were added initially... which obviously is unlikely unless one starts from scratch. I was disappointed.
However if you thing my damaged FTL file can somehow be recoved by FTB, in spite of the lack of attached media, then I would be willing to go with FTB anyway a, at least, my data would be current again, and I could gradually reintroduce the media in some spare time without lagging behind in the actual genealogy data.My current data included some 101,400 individuals after some 20 years of work; my 4-month-old file has some 93,000. It would be extremely difficult to go back in time to reinstate gradually some 8,000 individuals... while continuing to add new entries as new data is revealed (current marriages, births, deaths, etc.
If you think thare is good prospect in sending you my damaged FTL file (1.9GB), then I would be prepared to send it to you.
You suggest that I send my damaged FTL file send it to the email email@example.com. I certainly cannot send such a big file by email... If you read my note carefully, the file size is 1.9GB! And it took me more than a lot of days to create... As I also said in my note, I have been at this for 20 years!
So please let me know the alternative to send you this file.
Thank you, but there are no 'more actions' button. That was the first thing I tried. All of the albums that I want to keep have them, but the empty, duplicate albums do not. I have even tried adding photos into them to see if it would then give me the option to delete, but it said to choose a destination folder. Photo adder dose not recognize them.
For an album that was published from Family Tree Builder, in order to delete it, please go to Photos and Videos > Find, and there you will see a list of your albums, and you will see the delete option.
Ever since I downloadedn the latest version (184.108.40.20609), 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?
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.
