Companion Guide Book FTM 2012

Beyond The Basics - A Guide for Advanced users of Family Tree Maker 2012 Book  written by Tana L Pedersen.

This book is written with the advanced Family Tree Maker 2012 user in mind and is applicable to both the PC and Mac versions. It assumes that you are proficient with basic Family Tree Maker skills such as adding individuals and facts, creating sources, working with media items, and making charts and reports. It does not duplicate the topics already covered in the Companion Guide and is a useful resource to help you get the most out of Ancestry.com and Family Tree Maker and allows you to go the topic you are interested in - you don't have to read it cover to cover. Beyond the Basics includes a section on the new TreeSync and chapters on Filling Out Your Tree, Defining Relationships, Working More Efficiently, Importing and Exporting, Showing Off Your Family, Analyzing Your Tree, Preserving your History, Making the Software Work for You, Using Family Tree Maker and Ancestry.com and Cleaning Up Your Tree.


What's new in Family Tree Maker 2014

New Family View — see your family tree in a new way. This additional view makes navigating easier, especially when you want to see extended family members.

Improved TreeSync — lets you easily synchronize your tree in Family Tree Maker with an online Ancestry.com tree.

More organizational tools — stay organized with new tools that let you sort children automatically by birth order and view people by location, grouping them by country, state, county, and city.

New and improved charts and reports — more options and views let you display an individual’s ancestors, spouses, and children together. Also, the Index of Individuals Report has been expanded with options for anniversary, birthday, and contact lists, and more.

New tree branch export — a new export option makes it much simpler to export a single branch of your tree.

More editing options — save time with the ability to copy and paste facts including related source citations, media items, and notes.

Family Tree Maker 16 Upgrade Tools


What's new in Family Tree Maker 2012

Family Tree Maker 2012 has added a number of new features including the much waited for TreeSyncTM which links the FTM desktop tree and online Ancestry Member Tree together. This makes this popular genealogy program even better. Enhancements include:

TreeSyncTM —Now you can work on your family tree anywhere with the new TreeSync feature. When you link your desktop and online trees together, you can update either tree and then synchronize those changes into the other tree — manually or automatically with your Internet connection. Syncing your Family Tree Maker tree and online Ancestry tree has many benefits:

Improved Smart StoriesTM —When Family Tree Maker creates a Smart Story for you, the story now includes facts about the individual and his or her spouse and children. Previously a generated Smart Story included information about the individual only.

New Combined Family View —The family group view has a new “blended families” option that displays all of a couple’s children in one location. An icon next the child’s name lets you see at a glance whether he or she is the child of the father, mother, or both parents.

Simplified Interface for Upgraders —When you install Family Tree Maker 2012, the software detects whether you are upgrading from a previous version of Family Tree Maker (version 16 or earlier). If you are, Family Tree Maker displays a simplified user interface that looks more like older versions of Family Tree Maker.

Customized Fact Sentences — When you create an Ahnentafel, descendant report, or Smart Story, Family Tree Maker generates descriptive sentences for each fact or event. Now you can change the wording to customize these sentences and the data included in the sentences.

Reports

Charts

New and Updated Tutorials —You can learn to do more - like creating trees and using Ancestry.com features - with new and improved tutorials accessible in the software.

Gedcom —You can now include media links in the GEDCOM 5.5 export.
