    Oh I see. Yes, I've been able to reproduce this effect in my own family tree on FTM. It's very odd how the children are attached only to the parent on the right (whether mother or father). I've never noticed this in FTM before, probably because I've only really used the pedigree and relationship charts rather than the descendant charts.

    Surely we have that ability in FTM 2017? I have 5 trees that I sync with Ancestry and often switch from one tree to another in FTM 2017. What is so different in this new version?

    I was commenting on FTM as a package, not one version against another and of course some things will remain the same regardless of the version used. As a pragmatist I tend to accept that new innovations improve on old, and in the main they do. But tempered with that is of course how much something costs, and whether new features are attractive enough to warrant its purchase.

    On a broader spectrum think of Windows. Many people refused to upgrade from XP (despite security risks) and many, many more face the same decision with Windows 7 when it ceases to be supported by Microsoft next year. In the latter case they could all have upgraded without charge, but for their own reasons, some decided it was not for them. As they read of the shenanigans surrounding W10 downloads, they are likely happy they chose not to upgrade. Personally I think it folly, but that is just my opinion.

    So with FTM as the song says... "IF YOU'RE HAPPY & YOU KNOW IT, CLAP YOUR HANDS" I was happy to upgrade (despite the rampant commercialism of Mackiev) and hopefully will remain happy using the new version.

    Each to their own!

    You mention new innovations have you ever heard of an old innovation?
    I believe the word innovation is a stand alone. It means new.
    The rapid race to change the meaning of our language is making nonsense of it.
    I digress and find myself guilty of getting 'off topic'.

    I got my link finally last night.

    It meant (after download) that I could sync my tree after weeks of attempted sync + program randomly shutting down mid sync. Unfortunately it then duplicated everything again, and I have to keep working on removing duplicate people!
