After three months of waiting, the Australian and New Zealand edition of Family Tree Maker for Mac 3 is here, and I can hear all of you saying “FINALLY”. And trust me we’re as pleased to hear this as you are!
Anyway Family Tree Maker for Mac 3 is an updated and expanded version of their previous version for the Mac. This program is essentially a Mac copy of the Family Tree Maker 2014 PC version, and includes numerous new features including a new Family View that lets you control how you see your family tree and add or edit information while viewing extended family relationships.
Other improvements in Family Tree Maker Mac 3 include:
New tree branch export
A new, simplified export option makes it much easier to export a single branch of your tree to Family Tree Maker or a GEDCOM file.
More organisational tools
Save time with the option to sort children automatically by birth order and view people by location, grouping them by country, state, county, and city.
Mac and PC compatible files
Now you can open your Family Tree Maker tree on a Mac or PC without needing to convert it. (Note if you have files from FTM 2012 or earlier (the PC version), you will still need to convert them, and here’s details on how).
New and improved charts and reports
More options and views let you display an individual’s ancestors, spouses, and children together. Also, the Index of Individuals Report has been expanded with options for anniversary, birthday, and contact lists and more.
More editing options
Save time with the ability to copy and paste facts including linked source citations, media items, and notes. Also, if you have multiple versions of the same fact, you can merge them without losing any information.
Lets you easily synchronize your tree in Family Tree Maker with an online Ancestry.com tree.
Now you can synchronize even more of your family tree information such as photos, documents, source template data and customized notes.
Access and update your family tree from anywhere—your computer, Ancestry.com, even your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
Easily share your tree with your family and work on it together. Family and friends can view the online version of your tree without software or a subscription.
Collaborate with the largest, most active family history community in the world on Ancestry.com. Keep your online tree private or make it public so that others researching your family can find you. You may connect with others who have insight on your ancestors, discover rare family photos, or even find relatives you didn’t know you had.
There are dozens of other improvements and enhancements in every area of the software. From improved data entry to new options and features in many charts and reports, Family Tree Maker Mac 3 is our most advanced Mac software yet.
