2.0 out of 5 stars Down grade in my opinion, 12 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Family Tree Maker 2011 Deluxe (PC) (DVD-ROM)
I upgraded(?) from the 2006 version to the 2011 version and I have to say that I was very disapointed. Even after 3 months of use data entry is much slower than it was with the 2006 version.
I use pdf files generated from the reports to email close family changes to the tree. The changes to the way that the pdfs are generated means that I cannot now produce a 1 page version of the all in one tree, or even a 1 page descendant tree for a large branch of the tree. I used the one page versions as they were easy to read and of a small size.
I also produce a descendant tree that shows births, deaths, marriages, residences and occupations giving a compact documented tree. On 2006 the file produced for a 450 person branch is about 453k. The 2011 version has about twice as many pages, is 15 meg in size and runs out of memory around page 110, despite there being 10 gig available on disk available to the virtual memory.
I'm not impressed at having to export a ged file from the 2011 version and load it into the 2006 version to produce reports of any size.
I'm thinking of upgrading back to the 2006 version!
