Disapointing after 2006 Version - Slow and verbose search!!,
This review is from: Family Tree Maker 2012 Deluxe Edition (PC) (CD-ROM)
Very disapointed!!! - FTM particularly the 2006 version which I have used for years used to be the best Family Tree software available.
This new version is dreadful being slow to activate and run and more orientated to being integrated with Ancestory.com both cosmetically and datawise rather than doing the job efficiently for your own independant research. While it is possible to copy and merge searched data results from an integrated Ancestory search into family trees directly, it is so verbose that it only displays about 5 results per page rather than the summary 20 per page on the 2006 version making it more difficult to find those obsqure entries which are always diffult to find.
I am going back to the old 2006 version for as long as I can. This is another example of where developers have produced Bloaterware which may look pretty but is not up to the job.

Just be careful if you are thinking of reverting to your previous versions. I found out the hard way that FTM version 2010 will not run if you have upgraded your operating system to Windows 8.
