Pruchnicki Mon, 22 Nov 2010 18:55:56 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/?p=4980#comment-50786 Have just installed FTM 2011 today. I have been using 2005, which works fine. I was lacking the ability to insert foreign language symbols, that 2011 advertised could do. Well, after playing with the program for hours, I find out that the aymbols available are VERY, VERY limited. Useless. All I want is the symbol set available in Windows. Maybe other suppliers have the option available?

It keeps telling me to log in or register, which I have and keep doing and it does no good.

Tana, you continue to ignore are complaints and so does the rest of your organization.

Is FTM only interested in new family researchers with only a few hundred relations? If so, maybe the rest of us should just move on to another program and quit trying for any speed improvements.

Yes, I’m loving FTM2011 and Ancestry.com – totally hooked! Please encourage developers to work on a live sync option in the future for owners of FTM (between a FTM tree and an Ancestry tree.) Since FTM is pulling in hints now over the internet, it feels like I am just that close – but no cigar. Thanks again!

I fear that taking the speed problem down the road of people with larger databases have a bug in their file is the wrong one and running away from the problem.
The speed issue is there whether you are working with an established file or pulling in the same data from a gedcom.
The question Mark LeMonnier has to answer is why the developers of say Legacy 7 or RootsMagic4 do not have these problems with speed. Why can those programs load my 59mb gedcom in a few minutes while FTM takes up to two hours depending on which machine I use. Even my iPhone 3GS can do it minutes.
I hope that Family Tree Maker for Mac does not demonstrate the smae problems when I get my pre-ordered copy when it is finally released in the UK.

Thanks Charles, I will forward your email and file information on to the appropriate developers.

Susan, thanks for your kind words. I hope you’re enjoying Family Tree Maker.

Let me try to walk you through a quick explanation of your trees. Let’s call your Ancestry tree A and your Family Tree Maker tree B. Once you merge A and B together, you can up load the “new” combined tree (AB) to Ancestry. The AB tree will not merged with or replace tree A that you already have on Ancestry; the AB tree is uploaded as a completely new tree. You can choose to keep tree A and AB on Ancestry or you could delete tree A. Be aware that if you delete tree A, anyone you’ve invited to your tree will be lost and you’ll have to reinvite them to your new tree. You will not lose any media items.
