When creating an ancestor report, I consistently get a bug that gives incorrect spacing between the words.
For examlpe, I cut-and-pasted this from the report :
Anne Agate [Martin] was born in 1935 in Hastings,
which looks fine here, but in the original the space after martin] does not appear to be there.
I think the problem is in the spacing of the bold font - in some places in the report, whole words get overwritten. I would change the size of the font, but the "report options" menu item is greyed out and inactive). I am using FTB version 188.8.131.5233
I have attached a jpeg, so you can see that I am not imagining it. Note also the wrong spacing next to person 14 after 'married'.
Note also that the "untitled" attachment below is getting copied whenever I edit the post to correct spelling or add some words.
I print the Descendants report and look up on various sources and key my info from that. Since Update now will not print anything I type in second screen (facts). Can only key info in Places field to print. On old version Fact Notes would not always print, so leery of using that. although they appear to print now. I think if Places info too long, it lost or did not print, but seems to be all I can use now. Have large family, lots of info - 160 pages. Now I have to go move all the fields to places. Anyone else have this problem? Where do you key all your stories, extended info and get it all printed? I need tp keep a printed copy in case infor lost, I can re key, but so much info to constantly be proofing. Will call tech in the morning.
Is there a way to run a report to find similar data points in ancestros profiles? For example, I'd like to see a list of everyone who was born and dieed between X dates, and be able to refine that by Y area. Or everyone who is listed as buried at X cemetary. If that's not possible, is there a way to extract the profile information into an Excel format so I can process there?
I have been using MyHeritage for about two weeks now, have been having a blast with it. Had a bit of a jump on things since I had some material provided in hard copy that I transfered into electronic format and once I got use to the interface things started clicking along nicely.
Along the way I generated a couple of small charts to see what they looked like. That was about a week and a half ago when I was about 300 people.
Earlier this weekend I attempted to generate a chart and this is the steps that I took:
Option 1 - I have tried All-in-One & Sun Chart
Option 2 - Style 10 and Style 11
Option 3 - Main Person: Myself with my Spouse
Title: Our Family Tree
Facts for Individuals: Dates of Birth and death
Generations: Show all generations
Printing method: Mutiple pages with the options Prevent boxes from crossing page boundries selected and paper size set for letter set
After a about an hour or so the system finally spits out:
Please generate the chart again
This has happened several times. I expected it to take a bit to generated with over 1200 people but I don't expect it to crash, I am sure there are others who have generated trees much larger than what I have gotten so far and this is not even half of what I have to input, I have a 30 page document listing the generations for my mother's side that was prepared off the LDS database arriving later this week and expect the tree to double if not quadruple within the next two weeks.
When all is said and done I expect to be able to generate and order complete charts for the heads of the various families. How can this be accomplished if your system keeps biting the dust every time I attempt to generate a chart?
