Well, I tried it, but it did not give me the option of confirming or rejecting. So, I went back and reversed one of the rejected entities and then just hit ignore site on the one that's been hung up for so long and it disappeared...problem solved "sort of". It's a shame to have to ignore that site because seven smart matches showed up...four were good matches and three were rejects. Now, even if we have mutual relatives, I'll never know about it, nor will the other site. Pretty sad, since I'm pretty sure an MH rep could have fixed the problem without this drastic move.
This specific tree has caused the same kind of trouble before. Hearing your complaint makes me think there might be something wrong in our handling of this specific tree, and I will notify the relevant Developer.
As soon as a fix is made, I will let you know and you will be able to re-accept this tree, and see matches with it again.
Using Family Tree Builder. I would like to be able to include more information on a Family Group Sheet. The print options are extremely limited. For example, "Nickname" is a standard field in the FTB program, but will not print on a group sheet, unless I also add it to the facts section along with birth, death, etc. (after creating a custom fact). That makes for double entry, which shouldn't be necessary. If it needs to be listed with the other facts, why is it listed in the "names" section? It seems to me that the chart options are much more diverse than the report options. As it stands, the only information included in Group Sheets are 'notes' and 'facts' (and citations, of course). I should be allowed to select what fields I want in my report.
Also, in the Group Sheet options, what does "Only include facts in report language" mean or do? I can't see any difference when I select this option and then look at the Group Sheet.
When registring a marriage it feels natual to involve 2 persons in the registration, so if you make the registration for one the other is included automatically.
The same concept should be applied concerning censues. They too consists of af registration of several individuals, so it should be possible to make the same registration cover several individuals, making a change on one of the individuals show for all implied individuals
I wounder if you have any plans on updating the way references/citations is made in the program. Right now they are quite bad. A suggestion would be to instead of having a separate tab for it, you can have a reference after each fact. For example at the field "Birth" there is a possibility to enter the reference. Possibly also with a link to an online database? This way it would be much easier to track back information.
Is this something you can implement in the near future? Otherwise I am affraid I have to select another program. References is kind of the basic in any reserach and the presentation of it.
I agree the system needs to be more friendly and intuitive. Also, I would like for website citations to automatically attach to Notes when merged. Often I cannot remember which of the Smart Matches had the superior scholarship a few days later.
I am sorely disappointed in this feature. It looks fine if viewing through the program. However, when saving it to a file, it saves in a .CSV format. When I pull it up in my spreadsheet program (NOT EXCEL), it looks awful, and doesn't even list the names I've associated with the tasks. I was really hoping to be able to print out a nice document to take with me when I'm doing research. Until there is significant improvement to the task list, I'll stick to manually typing my own list in my word processor.
Justin Sew Hoy has written to you regarding the ability to provide a brief description of an album on the Album index page. He has entered information in the Details section of the Album and there are a couple of problems.
1) The text in the text box doesn't wrap so it isn't visible beyond the right border of the box.
2) After entering the description in the Details field it isn't displayed anywhere. Would it be possible to request an enhancement that displays that text either under the Album Title shown in the left column or as a text box displayed when the cursor hovers over the entry in the left column? Alternatively, could the description (Details text) be displayed to the right of the album title displayed at the top after the album is opened?
