Re: Family Tree Maker 2009
In Response To: Family Tree Maker 2009 ()
OK, I recently purchased Family Tree Maker 2009 and I hate to admit it, but I really don't like this program. I don't think there has ever been a time where I have felt this way about an upgrade. I went from FTM 2005 to FTM 2009.
My major issue is with the reports. I was a faithful user of the descendant report in FTM 2005 and would often export this to conduct searches and update information in my file. The report options in FTM 2009 don't populate the same as they do in FTM 2005. They give too much information and then too little. I've played around with the formatting some, but I'm still not happy.
I also purchased the Charting Companion, which I think is an excellent program that I may use for exporting the descendant report as it more closely resemebles the one from FTM 2005.
I am really thinking about moving back to FTM 2005
How does everyone else feel about this?
