Dates: - there is no difference in date formats using the software in English or in Finnish. I have tried to change the language from English to Suomi and viceversa. The date format is always %d% %m% %y%, where the month is in letters. I really like to get the dates shown in common way as dd.mm.yyyy, the month in numbers and in every language which I'll like to use. Day and month with two digits.
Marriage: - Why the title is Marriage? Why cannot it be Relationship? Ok, the most common relationship is marriage but... There is in the list of status values: Friends, Partners etc. Those are not any marriage status values. Any way, there should be values like: Ex-friends, Ex-partners, too. If you add those in the Facts llist, they don't appear to the view of the to peoples Status view, it shows always e.g. Partners when it should Ex-partners.
Thanks fo the reply. I known the Tools -> Dates options. There is the default format %m% %d% %y%. I have now %d% %m% %y%, this always shows e.g. 4 Apr 2014. Which Is the format to show 04.04.2014? If I give %d% %mm% %y% the result is the 4 %mm% 2014. If I write dd.mm.yyyy thei dates are dd.mm.yyyy. Another american style is the time, it is 12h clock, how can I get 24h clock?
The correct writing is "%d% %m% %y%", for Day-Month-Year.
Regarding the hours, I don't see where actually you can see hours on Family Tree Builder. Could you please contact us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org and send us a screenshot of both the dates and hours situation?
You can change how the dates are displayed in the Family Tree Builder for the pattern that better fits your needs:
1. Open your project on theFamily Tree Builder.
2. Click on "Tools" on the top menu bar and then on "Options".
3. On the window that opens, click on "Dates" on the left side menu column.
4. In the middle of that window, you will see the sections "Standard Calendar" and "Options for Standard Calendar". You can change the order of days, months and years which will be then displayed on the tree. For example: %d% %m% %y%, for day-month-year. You can change it for %y% %m% %d, for year-month-day.
We currently do not have this, although thank you for the suggestion. I will be sure to forward it to the appropriate department for consideration.
Please let us know if you have any other ideas as we do value such input from our users.
