"I am curious as to why you feel trapped in UFT because you can't move everything over to FTM. ....... but generally these do not need all the details available in your UFT database."

Darn right I feel TRAPPED! Catherine has indicated similar feelings & expressed it quite nicely and I'm positive if others were to contemplate a migration to another program later on or just want to create a GEDCOM they would soon discover the terrible situation they would be in.

First of all I like UFT, I still think it is the most complete genealogy program available, not easy to learn mind you, but the one with the most comprehensive features.

Now as to why I feel trapped....well if I wanted to send a UFT GEDCOM to a friend he will NOT receive all that I what I want to pass on to him, period, i.e., sources, notes!
Believe me Pierce, try it yourself you will no doubt see exactly what I'm saying.

Here is another area where UFT technicians/programers should come in and explain why they have added another feature (FTM GEDCOM)that "they" created which does not work properly, or at least explain what is wrong.
