Yes I'm using FTM2008! It is a lot different than the previous versions
of FTM. I'm enjoying it so much that I'm actually starting back over
from scratch on one of my files .
I've kept FTM16 on my computer as a back-up .
Transferring files from FTM16 to FTM2008 works great!
The only drawback so far to FTM2008 (that I miss) is a few reports
that I was used to using aren't there. They're planned as an addition
to the update. There don't appear to be any plans to add the book
feature, but I never used it on FTM16.
I've been working with FTM2008 for a couple of weeks, and am still
finding new features as I go. I'll bet if I read the manual (bought
separately) it'd go even faster.
Side note: my computer crashed about a month ago and I lost
almost everything. Luckily I had just backed up my FTM files and
had no problem transferring them back to my new computer after
I re-installed FTM16 (the program they were written in). It was an
easy transfer to FTM2008 from the FTM16 program on the computer.
Since it's a new computer, I'm working with Vista. No problems at all
with either FTM programs.
Lee (& everyone), I would love to know your thoughts when you
start working with FTM2008!
I'll have to give it a try as time allows.....as long as it's
"user friendly".....I am not exactly a computer whiz.....
While it may be an older program, and somewhat basic, I really like the
PAF offered for free at the Lds website..( do they still offer that??? )
I use that for my lines, and the FTM for my husbands.....
Sorry to hear about your computer!!!! Good thing you did a backup, an important point for us all to remember......backup those files on a regular basis!!!!!
