Places and Ancestry TreeShare

09 October 2017 - 12:28 PM

One of the benefits of using RM is that you can change the place and location spelling and details for all entries for that place or location.


I am finding that changing the places and locations does not change the status of that individual to 'changed'. Even an individual edit in RM does not change it to 'changed'.


Therefore, the only way to push that change back to the Ancestry tree is to clear the 'only show changed people' and find and highlight each affected individual in TreeShare. Finding those changes is very time consuming.


Can TreeShare be altered to mark every changed individual to 'changed' regardless as to where in RM the change is made?

Keyboard shortcuts and toolbar

Where possible could keyboard shortcuts be provided for new features? By that I mean where a menu letter is underlined that can be used with the alt key.


For example there is no direct shortcut for color coding. Similarly there are obvious shortcuts in TreeShare for Ancestry function.


Also could as many commands as possible be able to be put as an icon on the toolbar?







Search Groups

Is there any reason why you cannot search within groups?


For example, I might want to search for individuals in the 'Main' or 'Other' groups and, say, whose date of birth is before a certain date.

Colours on Treeshare with Ancestry

27 August 2017 - 10:32 AM

Does anyone know what determines whether an entry (to be copied to the other side) is shown in yellow or red. Obviously there is some sort of severity of difference between the entry in RootsMagic and the entry in Ancestry but I was wondering what the significance of the colours are and how they are determined.



Find Everywhere

It would be helpful if the Find Everywhere function could report items as they are found. This will then allow me to cancel the search once I have find what I am looking for rather than guessing when it might have found the item.


Also once it has found the item it would be helpful to be able to click on it to open it rather than just produce a text list.
