Gavin if you go to Help section in menu

You can read up about it, when adding info on the slide out panel ( when clicking on a name in tree you will see arrows << to right of screen this slides the info panel across) remember to press 'save'.

Hi Gavin

It might be that you have to click on "Page" right next to "Tools" and then click on "Zoom".........and then Zoom out to 75% in order for you see the "Save" box at the bottom.

I hope that makes sense!!

Prickles. :-)

How do you add a 2nd marriage and children from that marriage. I can only add the first partner and children. Can anyone give me a clue to what to do. Estelle
