My F11 is for Save :-)

but then my keyboard is ancient .......... about 10 years old. :-D

F11 on some PC's is for full screen view on modern browsers but not on all

The tree has an icon for full screen view but does not work on my tree page

To use F11 on my laptop to go to full screen i have to use the FN key plus F11

Not all keyboards have the same functions in the same place :-)

If you loose the add and edit then you are zooming IN and not OUT,

Try to Adjust the zoom level to 75%

press and hold the Ctrl key then the plus or minus +/- key

you need the minus key to go from 100% down to 75%

tried that thelma , if i zoom out i loose add and edit under the name it just leaves delete.
im really fed up with this site will probably go to ancestry.

You have to zoom out.
In spite of Genes claim that it should be the same on any system I have learnt to access via Google Chrome.

hello all,
when i go on to view other trees on the tree dashboard it only allows me to see the first 12 trees , i cant scroll down any further ?
also when i tried to add to my tree the drop down cuts off after the parents name so cant save ?
im sure its probably something so simple to solve !!
any suggestions?
many thanks
