which you will reach once you click on his name in the People page.
You will see the notes there.
We are planning to improve this feature,
so that the notes will be made more accessible.

Thanks, Noam. I found how to add notes--and they show up in the person's page (family tree-->notes & sources). But I'm not understanding what the difference is, in genealogy, between the "citation" tab, then "source" button & the "notes" tab in Family Tree Builder. I listed "obituary" as the citation when referring to the obituary of Nicholas Fachilla in my tree. However, as I also listed "obituary" as a citation for another family member, when you view Frank's events & facts-->death-->obituary, it shows the 2 people that I listed "obituary" for in their citations. What would be the proper way to use the citations tab in FTB? I'm thinking that I should maybe have written the name of the newspaper, but even that could feasibly produce duplicates--for instance, if a particular newspaper listed several obituaries for persons in the tree. And then what goes in the "source" button under the "citation" tab? It might be helpful if better descriptions were added to the FTB User Guide for these detail areas.
Here's an image of Citations, where you can put in text, and then if you edit the source, there's yet another spot for text. What's the difference? (well...maybe not! Why does your site say a 97.4 KB image say is over 300 KB?)
There is a way to view the entire tree in one shot, we call it the "All-in-one" chart.
Go to the Family tree tab and click the Print chart link. Select the first chart type called "All-in-one" and generate the chart. You will get a PDF file that contains a chart of all the people in your tree.
Would be much better to see rejected and confirmed on the overview page, then you don't waste time rechecking matches. Some indication of new matches on the same overview page would be good also.
Is it also possible to hide multiple matches on multiple trees on the same site. I have a number of matches to a site with 12 trees on it each with the same data in, therefore giving many more matches than really exist.
MyHeritage is currently in the process of implementing many exciting new features in Smart Matching that will give you better control. As you suggested, it will allow you to confirm and reject matches and see which matches are new. You will also be able to reject a whole tree if it is either wrong or superfluous. Once a match is confirmed, it will allow you to easily link between the individual in your tree to its confirmed match in the other tree.
Stay tuned for these and other improvements in Smart Matching in the near future.
I fully support the mentioned extensions in Smart Matches. In addition to this it would be great to have one extra column showing the date when the match was found. I currently have a list of over 1000 maches. When a new one is added I have no idead where to find it in the big list.
What about the copying of data from one site to another? I am a member of two sites; mine and one from my wifes Uncle. The other site has photographs of my wife's mother and father that would look good on my site as well. How can "Smart Matches" merge the two records or copy data from one site to the other so that the photographs and other pertinant data can be properly shared?
Attached is a side by side of the two sites showing what I am refering to.
