The new app for Android works ok on phones, but is a little anoying on tablets. Some of the menus is hardcoded in portrett mode and does not respond to turning the tablet into landscape. It should not be to hard to code an updated UI when the resolution is higher, but at least read the direction and resolution info for all of the UI.
When we are in the editing part of the app it behaves nice and the tree display is better than the web-interface.
Please make the above option in order to prevent individuals with less computer expiriense to change the family tree. It could be implemented as a general option - as it is today - and a per member option negating the general option
I'd like to see the abilty to hide completed Smartmatches, whether confirmed or rejected, etc. With 3000 people in my tree, I find it expremely time consuming to review each and every person to see if I've reviewed their smartmatches. Thanks.
I would like to see Dual Monitor support. If i currently maximize the screen on the second monitor every thing is ok and it all stays on the one monitor. However if i open My Heritage on the first monitor and maximise the screen you can see it expand onto the second monitor but then half of the window everything on the second monotir disappear. If i restore the window back to the one monitor all is fine.
It would be great to have dual monitor support as there is a lot of data when you have a lot of family members listed and it would be nice to be able to spread it out over two screens making it a lot easier to read
Also the ability to resize the font size would also be a good idea as well
We are aware of this problem where If you move FTB to your second screen, and then maximize it in the second screen, It opens partially on both screens.
this is only the case if your main display screen in on the right side.
If your main display screen in on your left side, then FTB opens up just fine in both windows.
We are working on fixing this, and we will let you know when it has been addressed.
My main monitor is on the left hand side and if you maximise it in the right monitor it is fine. However if you open it in the left monitor and maximise the window it looks like is spreading across both screens but only the section on the left monitor is visible. The minimise, Maximise & Close buttons on the top right side of the screen are not there.
I would just like to add that I have the exact same problem. My primary monitor is to the left. When maximizing it looks like it spreads across both screens as I just se half of the program on the left monitor. But on the right monitor it just gets white.
I love the timebook, but it is not terribly smart at picking out photos. For instance, for pictures of the one of the main person's children or sibblings, it should strive to pick photos in which the other children or sibblings do not show. Otherwise, all children and sibllings' pages look pretty much the same. Besides, picking out photos in which most, if not all, sibblings and children show is what should be done in the family pages. The same can be said for couples, e.g. parents, grandparents. It's not difficult to devise a scoring system based on these criteria to rank and select the photos.
I’ve become a little frustrated with the forum and the way the posts and replies are displayed. Especially at the sub forum level.
The Main forum index page is clear and precise but at the subject level those posts with any replies are expanded within the subject index.
– eg) post “Ex-partners Status”(my current page 2 of Forums > Family Tree Builder) has 9 replies listed. To me these should only be expanded and displayed if I click on the Initial post Subject and displayed in a new / separate page with only this subject. To me it makes the sub forum index look rather junky and takes up a lot of space. If there are 6 / 7 subjects listed and each has 3 / 4 replies well they goes a page full. If I wanted to find something from last week / month, then pages have to brought up searched though. And since you have a page selection, subjects could be browsed very easily. 1 2 3 etc.
A couple of new item could be added to the sub index subject bar-“#of Replies”, "#of Views” would be interesting, if not useful. Also, the posting / reply date in a standard format - not 159 days ago , not to many of us think in number of days ago.
I remember when I first joined that one post I browsed took up many , many pages before I ever got to another topic. And topics / subjects are what we are looking for and of course just general browsing to see what’s happening. And sometimes to give help from our own experience.
I know you have the code somewhere, even with this page – 15 topics , 25 lines.
This is similar to the Hourglass, but also includes all descendants and spouses of the main person's ancestors. This makes sense for families that keep in touch with their 2nd and 3rd cousins. In addition to the main person, the user would choose how many generations to go back in time from her. For instance, I would choose one of my grandmothers and 1 generation back. This would give me my grandmother and grandfather, their parents, sibblings and all their descendants.
I'm trying to uplaod additional content to people's profiles but the only option I can see is to add it as a photo.
Can we have an option to add "related files". eg. I have census and ship manifests I would like to add to profiles on my tree but currently can only add these as photos or as web links. Similarly I would like to be able to upload PDF files with other related material.
