When I click on add this to your tree, the tree name and the name of the person to copy the photo to, the program starts a new search and nothing happens. Is this a copyright problem or just my tree?

I quit. I give up. I am abandoning Family Tree Maker for Mac 2. It has completely messed up my tree with it’s constant crashing during syncs and merges. I’ve uninstalled and reinstall, compacted files, uploaded and downloaded COUNTLESS times.

It keeps doing the same thing. Works for a few syncs and then messes everything up again. I’m switching to MacFamilyTree; hopefully it will be more “Mac friendly”.

I hope that there are plans to bring these enhancements to FTM Mac 2 soon?

I’d like to have the copy/paste fact option.

People, you kill a butterfly everytime you ask something dumb, so go find the tech support lines, not the blog section for your problems.

Onto the new update. Nice work! I was one of those unhappy people when the FTM was first rewritten from the old style to the new application a few years back, because so many functions were missing. They’re back now, and this is a far better application foundation then we ever had before. In particular, the media capabilities have made my trees come to life.

Okay, enhancement question time. When you look at the People section, and pick an indivuidal in the Family View, over on the right side of the screen (I’m on FTM Mac 2), you have the options of Facts, Media, Notes, and Tasks. How about adding a 5th option called “Sources” with a list of all sources tied to this person, and a 6th option called “Source Media” which shows all media related to all sources that relate to this person? Why? Because with the advanced Sourcing capabilities, I’m adding all kinds of interesting pictures of books, boats, census documents, newspaper articles…everything but it becomes nearly impossible to try and find it all as it relates back to a person.

Thoughts Ancestry development?

I cannot find my disc to re-install it. I thought there might be a link on the web site where I could download it. I cannot find any thing online. HELP – any one else ever have this problem??. I am still looking all over for my disc & I have found old, old, old versions of ftm – but cannot find the most current version. What to do??

It would seem that since the upgrade I can no longer sync on my tablet or my computer what I have done on the web. Could the upgrade be undone ?

thanks

The PDF issue is well-known to the developers. The issue is that the Share module is supplied to Ancestry.com by DevX, a third party developer. Unfortunately they use a version 1.3 PDF that has a 5 metre (200 inches) limit.

Adobe upgraded this limitation in about Acrobat 1.5 (they are now at Acrobat 11) .

But for reasons that have never been clearly explained, DevX continues to supply the Share module with this very old spec PDF generator.

You can workaround the problem several ways by installing an up to date PDF generator like Acrobat, Nitro, Nuance, etc or better still, use either Charting Companion or Family Tree factory if you want to seriously make big charts.

Both these applications will produce charts only limited by the roll of paper you (or your printing service) can buy. Both programs are available via download
