Projects Directory STILL defaulting to MyHeritage default setting in V7
Ian Bell
- Close
Hi there,

I thought that the default setting for the projects directory was going to have an option for user default setting???????

(C:/-->options -->General -->Projects Directory -->[user defined]) I REFUSE TO USE THE DEFAULT SETTING.Is it tooooo hard for the developers to make this change, or don't they know how to!!!!???? I was informed in a previous post I made on this subject that it would be changed. Why hasn't it been done?

I am sick and tired of having to change the default location every time I open FTB, as I don't use your default as I have ALL my projects on a dedicated external drive. Also I won't use the default location for backups. I have a USB for backups. That way they are independent of the main PC.

Can someone at MH please advise me if - no wait - when it can be done.

Hey Ian,

If you change the project's directory once it should be saved.

If you experience the project's directory resetting back to the previous default settings then please notify us and we will try to investigate it further.

As for the default location for backups - the backups are usually saved in the same directory as the projects directory. So then if you change the projects directory and save the project the changes should be reflected on the future backups as well. 

So sorry for the bad experience you are having. 

Please, let us know!

Hi Daniel,

No luck. I changed the project directory location, then exited FTB, reloaded and it is back to the default setting!

Over to you for a resolution.

EDIT.

One other suggestion I made sometime ago which appears as though has not been done. In Tools --> Options --> Names --> Empty first name (also Empty last name & Empty full name) there are options for Unknown, ?, -, ___. I asked earlier if Not Known could be added for First Name, NOT KNOWN added for Last name. I ask this because I have my own Web Site and the program I use to generate the names with doesn't recognise Unknown, it shows a ? in the generated names, whereas Not known shows as Not Known.

Hey Ian,

Thank you for writing us.

We are so sorry for the long delayed response.

Could you perhaps try and run the family tree builder by right-clicking on the shortcut and run it as administrator? Then try to change the project's directory.

We would also recommend you log in as an administrator in your computer.

 

We will suggest your issue regarding the "Not Known" individuals to our developers! 

Daniel D.
