Recently, while working on something else, my mind wondered over to the topic, should I purchase the new Family Tree Maker (FTM) software? From my readings, I saw that most people were not going to buy it, but I thought, what new thing would it need to have before I bought it? Within seconds, I thought of the utility that would make me jump up and purchase it. It was copying a descendant FTM report onto a Word document, so I can make changes. For more years than I care to remember, I have used their tab File then; Export Family View to Acrobat (PDF) and attached the PDF to an email, then sent it off. The recipient was usually happy. But, that isn't fair! Because all they can do is just print it and view it, and can't make changes. If they want a long paragraph for themselves from my PDF, they needed to retype it, as there was no way for them to insert the PDF into their files when it came from me!
As I was pondering the above, a descendant genealogy report was on the screen and I took a hard look at it, thinking why not see what a Right Click, then copy the report would do. Quickly, while the data was in the clipboard, I went to a Word document and pasted it. Goodness, there it was, and I could make changes. And a friend could make changes on my work. Simple to the end.
I am not quick to try new things; if it works I am happy. Yesterday, I challenged myself on how to copy a personal photo onto a facebook page. Another blogger and I both wondered about trying to figure out how to do it. By the evening, we had both done it and we felt quite proud of ourselves. Gini Webb must have spent a good hour or more with me last winter on trying to teach me how to upload a blog on facebook, I think I gave up way before she did. But now I know how to do it, it is a snap. Sometimes these technical things are far easier than we realize!
