I am trying to add details to people in my tree but I can't seem to any help please

Once you have selected the person in your tree, on the right is a mall box with a double arrow in blue. Clicking this opens the "Detail Box" where you can add details, pictures etc.

When you have made changes, you need to click the "Save" box at the bottom before you close the details box. The old tree reminded us about this, the new one doesn't. Yet.

alert !

They are doing something as I cannot get my save button to show up on my tree.

It did if I changed from 100% to 75% now it does not show up until I go down to 50%.,everything is so small I can't see it. UGGG!!!!

I am so disillusioned with this site now,I would have thought with all the suggestions the members are giving Genes they should be on top of things by now

sue :-(


Just found with the help of Jax ...still keep the tree page at 75% then press F11 the save button will appear again at the bottom of the page .

I use 100% Zoom when out of tree,every time I go back into my tree it remembers the setting of 75% so you do not have to change it all the time...just remember to go to f11 when you get to the tree page
