Children in Birth Order

Children in Birth Order

From the blog post, I understand that one of the features of FTM 2014 is the ability to re-sort all children in all families by birth order at once.

My question - has anyone tried it yet and MUCH more importantly does it stick?

I have resorted my many families a gazillion times, in order to create sensible reports to share with family. When I open FTM the next time, the children are out of order yet again, while I have not done anything to change their order.

Sorting everyone at once is nice, but not very useful if I have to do it every single fr****ing time I want to create a report!

Thanks for any light you can shed.

It works, In fact, if you download your tree or add children from acom and sync, the children arrive in birth order in the first place. I haven't seen an instance of it not sticking yet... Worth the cost of the upgrade alone for me!

Thanks sl_kelly

Of course the question now (not for you, but for the universe) is why in the heck did "they" ever muck it up in the first place?

I know -I know - supposedly it was in response to consumer (that's us) demand. Right.

It was a feature. Not a bug ;-)
