I have used the new Smart Matches function enough to understand how it works, at basic level. In the end I can reach a point where a person has got a lot of Smart Matches. From this new common view I can see how many positive hits a specific piece information has got,
In the old version in FTB, you may transfer the useful information to your own tree by a step-by-step merging procedure which has been extremely useful, although rather unreliable. Probably there is similar feature in the new version, only that I have not found it. Could you enlighten me, please?
After reading the FAQ I realise, that the changes that were collected online, do not automatically trickle down to the FTB. This means two bad things. After doing some merging, the online tree looses synch with the FTB tree. And, even if you did not say so, publishing from FTB might create major problems in the online tree, perhaps overwriting the changes.
I have been critical earlier about this scheme with an FTB tree and an online tree and expected that there will be synch problems. It now seems that that time has come.Possibly we would need some instructions and advice, stating that we should not uypdate the tree on the FTB, only online.
