In previous versions of Family Tree Builder (pre Version 8) I could easily merge two trees by importing one into the other as Gedcom files. I am now informed that this facility is not currently available in Version 8, which is a real pain in the backside. What I want to know is, when will it be available again?
I started my tree with my 3rd great grandfather and later expanded to my 6th great granfather. My problem is when i what to print my tree it prints fom great grandfather #6 to #4 then I have to start printing again and this doesn't keep the generations correctly.
I just downloaded Family Tree Builder. My main tree is on Ancestry, ~6000 people, with lots of sources. I started a small tree on MyHeritage to work on my Norwegians lines. So now I have the small tree on FTB and MH that has ~400 people, of which ~50 are in my Ancestry tree.
I was thinking that a good way to proceed would be to use FTB to merge the Ancestry and MH trees, and then split into branches, then upload those to MyHertitage. I also have a Legacy, Roots Magic and Family Tree Maker desktop software but only the Family Tree Maker tree is current.
Is this doable? Is this a good approach? What would you suggest?
I upgraded my builder to 8 and today I noticed I have lost my virtual cemetery. Tried installing the latest version today but it still is missing. They are all gone (although the photos are in the file) There is no feature to add new photos to the virtual cemetery. Your help manual says there should be.
Hi, I'm having a problem that I had the same problem before. In the "Family Site" There are some names which shows the names as "Unknown". When I change the language of the website to Turkish " I can see the names of the persons who had unknown names. But other names became unknow now. Before I solved this problem by merging person to one language. But I can't find that option in the new version anymore. How can I fix this.
My parents never married yet the software doesn't ever change the status. You can choose partner or friend but when you print off a report it always says husband and wife. I would rather something like Male and Female partner. That way the information is more accurate because my dad is not my moms husband and that is confusing when the report says husband and wife.
An example attached and the status for their relationship is partner so you know.
I have recently spent a lot of time going through the photos in FTB, deleting duplicates and making sure that each photo is properly assocuiated with the people in it. This would have been a lot easier if there were:
1: A way of sorting the photos in the table view using the column headings - that is, the normal way of sorting a table in a database, by clicking on the column heading.
2: A way of searching the photo database for a particular photo, by name and/or associations. I have found a photo in an album that I want to copy to another album - which is a great idea, but I cannot find it in the main photo list, and dragging it from its existing album moves it rather than copying. I know that you can put the photo in two albums, but it seems this can only be done from the 'all' photos page - it is difficult to find the right photo out of the over 800 I have.
Jeg skal endre på skrift-type og størrelse når jeg lager nytt diagram (er inne på "avansert tilpasningsvalg". Rubrikkene for skrift-type, størrelse, linje mellom boksene og ektefeller responderer ikke. Har tidvis hatt problemer med dette siste tiden, da jeg bruker disse funksjonene relativt ofte.
