Not everyone is visible in Family Tree (5 posts)

    Not everyone is visible in the Family Tree. For example: Only a mother or father of a child is visible, not both.

    Is it possible to connect the mother and father?

    You are right, the current version of the family tree only shows the blood-line down from one ancestor. The side effect of this is that some people get left out of the tree.

    In an upcoming release the complete tree will be drawn so this issue will hopefully be resolved soon. We decided to not complete this until we had a sensible solution for the case when siblings have different parents, for example.

    While the version of the plugin is below 1.0 I consider it to be functionally incomplete, and I'd very much welcome early feedback and suggestions for features to be included up to the first complete version 1.0.

    Just wanted to post an update on this issue..

    In the current version 0.7 you can now see both mother and father (actually all spouses can be made visible in the tree).

    I just wanted to add some feedback, I had a similar sort of issue but it was because I had not defined a root, and I found that the family tree would at times select a person with a name that started with the letter A, if I would have read the help files I would have been able to fix my problem myself. However as you do, I jumped onto an e-mail and the_arv sorted out my issue in real time despite me being on the opposite side of the world. I can’t tell you (actually I can tell you), in all my years of drifting in and out of IT, I have never communicated with a person so friendly, knowledgeable and willing to stick with you till it was resolved. Mate, I take my hat off to you, as we say down under, ‘Bloody Ripper’.
