I have constructed three separate trees and recently the program automatically resolved "inconsistences" which resulted in adding 300 to the main tree, who were all just repetitions of existing names so now there are same sex marriages (how modern!), marriages across families and generations and merging of several familiies into one. This has undone hours and hours of work and I don;t know what to do short of erasing it all and starting again. An added irritation is that smartmatches is throwing up cray things as a result of this. Help!
I also have had the software do the same deleting/switching of spouses and children. I printed out branches just before saving the project. When the project was opened later about 5% of the relationships were now wrong!
I have spent the majority of time now on MyHeritage repairing the bad connections caused by the software.
I have also found that using MyHeritage Forums will not accept 'replies' if you use FireFox as your browser. This has been submitted using MS InternetExplorer.
I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way about our progeam.
When working on a backup, oyu need to make sure that once you work on the project continuously, you load it noramlly and not from the backup file, so that it doesn't open with a new name as a new project. You just go in Family Tree Builder to File> Manage Projects, choose the project and open it.
You can delete the extra versions in Manage Projects- just make sure they are not open at the same time.
I hope you give our program another chance.
Let me know if I can help you with any other questions.
