New tree builder

I think it is terrible this new tree builder and have had a lot of problems with it. For example when I hit 'save' on a person's name it comes up three or four times so I am wasting my time deleting those names. Not only that why should we have to fill in the first piece of paper just to put in the names and year of birth and THEN the next bit one has to fill in again to repeat the names and year of birth also where one was born. We do not have any control of this any more and it is time wasting and it took me FOUR hours just to do a A4 sheet of paper to put the names and year of birth, address ect on the new tree builder. Come on one could do better, no wonder people have gone off doing this new tree and I do not blame them also it is very confusing especially for the elderly people.
