Downloaded version 8.0 on my new computer, currently using 6.0. The reason why stayed with 6.0 was that the notes created in the tree stayed with the person and didn't refer you to the end of the report as it did in 7.0. I see 8.0 has fixed that but now has all the command prompts showing in the PDF report when I opened existing trees and created new report. Any chance you can fix that or tell me why it is happening. Thank you.

Version 8.0 seems to be pretty buggy. I upgraded it to it and now the tree synchronization ends up in neverending loop. I cannot do anything. If I click on anything, it says "Synchronization is in process" and it never ends.
Hi i tried the BETA vesion worst mistake i made in regards to my family tree.Lost a tree with 7000 people and the restore did not work worth dam.Have since had to restart building the tree and am using version 7,i doubt if i will go to version 8 in the near future.Mind you they gave me a 1 year credit(big woop).
Also I made the mistake to upgrade too quickly to FTB versio 8.0. I have lost all my fact-details (feitvermeldingen). I noticed the missing info too late, since my upgrade I manually added appx 200 new persons...... Now i am back to version 7, and an older databackup. It will take some time until I am back on track.
My advise for anyone who wants to upgrade to FTB8...... Make copies of your FTB7 dataset, make a copy, make a backup, and make a gedcom (the more you have, the safer you are). After the upgrade; check your data, check the details, check, check, check....
Thanks Remo! When the Consistency checker, Translation wizard, GEDCOM merge (into existing project), TODO tasks and “Save-as” button are back on again like in FTB7, I seriously consider upgrading to FTB8.
I have been using MyHeritage Family Tree Builder (FTB) since approx 2010, and things have worked fine.
Today I installed version 8.0, and there are some problems.
1. Earlier versions of FTB have worked fine with the Complete Genealogy Reporter. Version 8.0 does not; pictures and documents disappear, notes are rubbishly formatted.
2. Some persons loose their personal pictures in FTB 8.0. The connection between the picture and the person exists, but it has to be deleted and then reentered to make the picture appear again.
3. It was said earlier that MyHeritage will be integrated with 23andMe DNA tests. The only "integration" so far is that the 23andMe logo appears on you MyHeritage Web site. In FTB 8.0, 23andMe is not an option.
4. I think MyHeritage should provide a link so that users who are not happy with FTB 8.0 can reinstall e.g version 7.0.
I downloaded the Mac version of FTB earlier this week. My system is an iMac with 8 gig of ram. I have a large database, over 46,000 individules. This program took hours to look for duplicates. Many of them had enough critera that they should not have appeared in the duplicate list.
I have been all day workin with about 150 duplicate. Most of them were children duplicated with in the same family. My gedcom was created from Mac's Reunion database program and I would check and did not see a duplication for that family in Reunion.
My disappointment with this program is the length of time it takes to save a change made to the profile or delete a duplicate person. When I would make the change and click the OK option it would take one minute to save that change. I used the clock on my phone as a timer to check the length of time it would take. This was a big disappointment I found in using this program.
I hope this issue will be looked into and the save time won't take so long.
I recently moved from ancestry whre I had about 2500 individuals in my family tree. About 30% had profile photos associated with them. These photos are now part of myHeritage but all of the personal phots have to be entered manually. I see the pictures in the profile but there appears to be no easy way to drag the link into the personal picture? Looking for suggestions.
GEDCOM lagrar inte bilder så när du imnporterar till FTB så importeras inga bilder. Vad gäller förlorade personer så kan det ha blivit ett fel vid koverteringen till GEDCOM. Prova att istället välja Släktträd/Hantera släktträd och välj Ladda ner till Family Tree Builder.
