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.
It would be great if you could turn off record and smart matches for certain people. Especially record matches! I have two people that are in over 300 newspapers and they are even a direct blood line... very tedius to go in and wade through and reject so I can get to the "good" stuff.
What I do is attach a source image, which is a photograph of a record from a book. The record is usually difficult to read and in another language, so I provide a transcription and a translation in the description box. To make this legible I use line breaks similar to the original text and also additional line breaks between the different language versions. There is often very poor punctuation in the transcription because no punctuation existed in the original text - they used line breaks too. However, these line breaks are removed by MyHeritage making the whole thing very difficult to read.
In FTB, when right-clicking on a person and selecting "relation" to open the relationship calculator, the result is in text. For example :
A is the daughter of B
B is the sister of C
C is the husband of D
D is the brother of E
E is the father of F
and so on. While this is useful in some ways, it is not easy to see whether A and F are what I would call "close" or "distant" relatives - whether they are actually blood relatives or related by marriage. I would really appreciate an option to show the relationship graphically. Names would not be important (though some users might prefer them), so something like dots joined by lines, where a single dotted horizontal line is a marriage, a solid horizontal line a sibling, and vertical lines show descendents/amcestors. The above would look sonething like (forgive the poor representation, as I am limited to typed characters):
I inserted the letters for clarity, but all I am asking for are dots to represent the people. maybe pink and blue to indicate sex. Looking at this digram, I can see MUCH quicker that A's parent's sibling's spouse's sibling's child is F, than I could in the text format. I can also quickly see that A and F are related by marriage, not blood.
Given that your program has already calulated the information in text, converting it to the diagram should be easily programmed.
You could widen the realtionship calculator window and add the diagram to one side of the text/memo box.
What it is doing is that it is disallowing any query to be posted on the site. It just displays a loading message and nothing happens...
Your older method of contacting customer support was functional and response was also good.
I wanted to find out how to nest a photo album into another album. For example, I make a grandparent album, under it make parent albums and under them albums forall the children. Automatically all photos would get loadedin thecorrect place.
I am unable to find out how to nest an album within another. Something akin to a tree structured directory/folders
Please guide me how to do it,
And in case the faciliy is not there, please buildit in.
I note that your website for FTB still advertises smart match technology, even though this no longer works properly in version 8.0. I have just downloaded build 8225, and clicking on the green circle on a person's tab gets me a statement that there are "35 smart matches" for a person I recently added to my tree, but none of the matches show up, even after clicking "update now". However clicking on some people, that I have previously confirmed matches for, sometimes does show the matches. FTB has a bug!
Suggest that you update Scottish records eg. Census - there are records after 1861. Please make it clear before people sign up that your Scottish records are limited and when a search is made for Scottish genealogy sites your name pops up. Misleading
