A wok in progress

A work in progress indeed. There’s no question this is a fine product/application but there is a pocket of confusion at the starting gate. I have just realized that in the upgrade from the Ver. 8 to 9, I have repeated reminders or choices, to choose one of the former version to migrate. That done, the old version ones still appear on the choice list at startup. Confused, I tried to merge all as I updated one and was not sure which of them as all have the same name. That couldn’t be done. That has been an enormous pain trying to rectify and eventually I have to find a way to stop go in remove all the backups from deep in. The library and replace it with the one that I had on my desktop. The producers must fix this and make it easier. My top ancestor cannot for some reason be integrated, is another anomaly, but one I still have to sort. It could be a preference setting.

After all, why not one made for Apple products!

For over 20 years, I have been ancestor follower, family story collector and sharer. It wasn’t until finding Family Tree that I finally found a program I was confident in having a good relationship with, because I have preferred Apple since the first iMac I owned, 24 years ago. To have the program on iPad Pro and iPhone is the best. Not only will you have a more fluid and productive time, you have a more likely safe data security, and seamless connectivity only offered by Apple. Making an ancestry program for Apple OS makes Family Tree the only app I can suggest.

My favorite program just got worse!

I have used MobileFamilyTree 7 & 8 and MACFamilyTree 7 & 8 versions now for about 12 years and l absolutely loved them. But this new 9.7 version of software is truly a disappointment. After placing over 3500 pictures into my database, they have destroyed all of my hard work by reducing the picture sizes down so small in the descendent, hourglass, circular, and ancestral charts, I can not even see them without a magnifying glass. This is especially true when you print them out. The design of the new round picture charts is very nice, but you have to adjust the size of each picture just so their foreheads and chins are not cut off by the size of the circle. It would be nice to be able to adjust the size of the circle to fit more of the pictures. I am staying with the older version of software because it respects all of the thousands of pictures I have added over the years. Don’t destroy my pictures please.
