I have put all the info in about a child I want to add but it isn't going into the tree! What am I doing wrong?

Are you clicking on ‘Save’?

My tree has sometimes not updated, whatever buttons I press.

The next day everything works.

Frustrating. I do not know which bit - me, computer, internet, genes, is the weak link, and usually blame me.

I find that when I add a father to an individual, and then try to edit the details, I have to re-boot my device before the details are saved

This has been the case for as long as I can remember, but does not apply to any other relatives
