The Indented Descendant chart routine in UFT is really basic as far as information is concerned (at least they added the ability to insert dates). Personally I create a GEDCOM and import it into Family Tree Maker and use their Indented Descendant Chart which is one of the few aspects of this program that is superior. It allows you all sorts of options as to the information to be included. I usually select the following. Name, date born, where, date married, where, date died, where, spouse, spouses fathers name, spouses mothers name. This makes a great summary chart. There is a problem with font size as you add more information but you can play with this or print in landscape. I have suggested (wish list!) to UFT that they should include the same sort of functionality for the UFT chart but, as with other requests, you might as well talk to your parakeet.
I'm a loyal UFT user and go back to Roots III, but I am as frustrated as the rest of you that no one seems to be seriously working on UFT. I've tried TMG and it is a great program but I don't feel like investing the
time in the learning curve when I've already got a great program in UFT.
And another thought, why don't they add the FTW CD functionality to UFT and then they could market them together as intermediate and advanced applications? Just think of the added $$$$
I get the FTW rag in the mail frequently but have never seen one for UFT although I've been a registered user for years.
Does anyone at Genealogy.com have any idea what a great program they have with UFT ????? Or is it Foxpro that is holding them back ????
I had a dream the other night that all of the UFT users in the world got together, purchased UFT from Genealogy.com, got some venture capital, hired some programers and a "real" marketing manager and in a short time blew the socks off the rest of the Genealogy Software community. Had an IPO and became
millionaires. Aaahhh, what a dream. ;>)
If there is a Genealogy.com Marketing Manager out there for UFT he ought to be fired.
