Actually all people you mentioned (apart from Lior Elisha) do have the 'Remind' link.
Note that this link appears to you only if you originally invited that person. Are you logged in as Bennett Stern? Because if not, you will not see the 'Remind' link for people you did not invite to the site.
When I'm editing my family tree from the website, and I'm adding a photograph to a person, and I cick the "add photo" next to the person's name, it prompts me to upload a photo of that person. If I'm not mistaken, you can't just use the tagged face of that person in a photograph you already uploaded. When I was using the family tree builder offline, I could do that.
Because of this, I'll have to upload a cropped version of people in many photos, which will waste lots of space and be confusing. Could you fix this? I used to be able to simply tag people in a photo and select an option for it to be their personal photo.
I am using Family Tree Builder and won't be moving to the new improved version until it has been thoroughly tested and tweaked. That said...
The background is that I have started a new tree for my wife's family. The patriarch, in Australia anyway, was of Italian race, from Switzerland, very possibly not very literate and with an accent not easily understood by people recording his details. With the result that there are many variants of the family name among the descendants. His name was Truffini and known variants are;
Well said and many of us suffer the variants in spelling- and there is often very strong sub groups that determine the spelling of THEIR surname as THE correct way, but this does not account for the others in the same line that have a differnet opinion.
Surname variants are the bane of my genelaogical life- but are not recognided easily by FTB- sure you can add a surname in the ""name" but you cant easily acess or display the variants.
I will try putting a 'dummy' name into the tree for each of the variant names. Enter a new person, using the variant surname only, and showing no connection to other family members. It will be interesting to see if SmartMatches then finds matches to other people with that same variant surname, who might have been missed otherwise.
The slow load is due to the fact that we are loading your project to the computer's memory at the startup of it. The bigger your tree, and the more photos you have in it the slower it will load.
Regarding the autosave - I've already replied in the forums, and in fact another member mentioned that it does work - but when the software crashes the file that will be restored is not the automatically saved file.
Maps doesn't work - we are investigating this issue, we would be glad if you could write our support team (if you didn't already) about this issue and we will try to collect more information from you about it.
The three processes that work in parallel with MH are the following:
Myheritage.exe - which is the software itself.
Family~1.exe - which is the softwares tool to check if you have any updates from the site, and to sync to the site. (We separated the processes to give higher performence and to allocate more resources to different parts of the software)
FTBCheckUpdates.exe - is the softwares aid to check if there are any available updates from the site.
I am sorry that you feel this way. We only delete posts that violate the terms of service - including ones that insult the people that use the site and our workers.
We are open to feedback, but we ask for the language used in the feedback to be polite.
I would love if you'll be able to send a message with any feedback to email@example.com. Ask for Arbel.
Thank you for letting us know about this post. I deleted it.
Totally agree with you! I had THREE postings deleted within 20 minutes after they were posted, just because I dared to ask WHY my postings were deleted. But the one you are reffering to definetly violate the forum rules and it´s still there.
MyHeritage has covered themselves pretty much against anything. They can even delete bug reports or ANYTHING that put their software and service in a bad light. This is because of:
"You must not:
Use our Website or Service in a way that might damage our name or reputation."
I have asked before, if they follow their own Terms and Conditions and have come to the conclusion that they violate their own rules.
Clearly, making FAMILY TREE BUILDER v.7 and releasing it the way they did with so many bugs, ignoring their members (including those who pay money) and whatnot WILL DAMAGE BOTH THEIR NAME AND REPUTATION. I wonder, will it have concequences for those employees who violated the terms?
