Users can link to any type of media by selecting “All Files” under the “Files of type” drop-down. The default is set to image files, but any type of media can be linked.

In addition to adding source-citations to facts in the People workspace, you can create new source-citations in the Sources workspace as well by clicking the ‘Add’ button in the upper right section of the ‘Sources’ workspace.
Users can choose to have Family Tree Maker 2008 ignore the place warnings and remove the question marks in the Places panel.
This can be done under “Tools – Options – Warnings” and then uncheck the “Show unrecognized place name indicators” box.
Fonts can be set to display larger by clicking the “Use large fonts” box in the General Options window.
