Some people have claimed that Ancestry.com is skipping the release of a Family Tree Maker 2013 because they are still fixing serious tree-synching bugs in the 2012 product. Regardless of their motives, Family Tree Maker 2012 owners received word recently that another free update is available.
A few of the new or improved features are:
- Several bugs have been fixed in Tree Sync and several new features have been added, such as the ability to flag desk-side media objects for exclusion when uploading photos and documents.
- In the Places workspace locations are grouped together hierarchically to make them easier to access.
- Backups can now include media files from where ever they are on your hard drive and can now include information such as website favorites and historical events for timelines.
- Facts can be copied and pasted to multiple family members, including media and citations.
