Support for new versions of GEDCOM

I have been looking at the GEDCOM export/import from iFamily and it used GEDCOM 5.5 standard which is quite old. The latest GEDCOM org spec is 5.5.5 though 5.5.1 is often used (Not sure of the changes). FamilySearch have issued GEDCOM 7.x which is not an update but a new standard - which is a bit co...

Re: New Computer 12.3.1 NO iFamily?

Hi, Minor correction to previous post. The iFamilyData folder is un the User area by default not the Documents folder - though it can be moved using the move option. I have mine in the iCloud area so that it can be shared between machines. Still need to locate that folder and find the contents as th...

Re: New Computer 12.3.1 NO iFamily?

Hi Strange that the finder search does not find any .ftksql files. Do you have an iFamilyData folder in “Documents”? Or any where on the computer? The Backup files are generated when you do a database merge (and possibly other times) as a way to protect your data. Bottom line for me is if there are ...

Hi Kathy, I assume you mean you are on macOS 12.4 with iFamily for Mac v 2.12.0 I don't know why the application does not launch when you click on it - It usually bounces and puts up a Menu bar with the options to load a family tree if it hasn't found one - or a requester to check for any update.

Then, it would not generate the multiline report again so I believe the options are not being correctly read. Also, the gener...

As you have moved to a new computer it is possible that the database file is not in the correct location. Where is your ...

Hi

I get a similar issue on an Apple Silicon MacBook Pro with Monterey 12.3 and iFamily 12.2 0 but get a requester listing the accepted formats.

It also failed on the 9 Sep 1880 so I didn’t check out the limits of the bug.

Hi Andrew No experience with Windows based family tree apps but I’m sure a net search will offer some candidates.

Re: Adding Music or Video files

Hi,

You are supposed to be able to add audio & video files in the Pictures pane by Copy & Paste or Drag/Drop but it does not seem to be working.

This is one for Warwick to resolve as it has probably become broken in some update or other.

Re: Error Message Window

Hi

This problem was noticed a while ago but I’m not sure if Warwick has a fix yet.

Previous messages:

Force quit seems to get through the close problem without data loss (as far as I can tell) but clearly not ideal.

Cheers
