Imported Families displayed a HUGE distance away

Post by ColinT » Sat Mar 17, 2007 7:40 pm

Hi

I imported and merged my wife's side of the family to form one database. Everything went well except that the existing tree and my wife's family are displayed at what appears to be a exeptionally large distance from the main tree.

I have tried to drag the tree over but it never appears to get any closer. I have zoomed out a 1000, 10,000 and 100,000 times and both existing and merged trees are never on the screen together.

I realise that there must be a problem with the co-ordinates, but how do I correct them.

HELP!!!

Colin

It is likely that this has been because the two original trees were in different parts of the tree area display.

You can fix it quite simply as follows:

Use "Go to family" to scroll to your wife's tree, zoom out and select all of her family rectangles. Again, use "Go to family" to scroll back to the main tree and then use "Edit | Move selection", the cursor will change to a white cross, left-click to place the selected rectangles.
