How do I go back once converted? FTM 2014

How do I go back once converted? FTM 2014

This is one God awful program. I can't sync 2 files. It constantly crashes and now I can even use find and replace without it crashing.
Can I download from Ancestry.com into FTM 2012?

I would open FTM 2012, go to the Plan page, and proceed from there. I'ld also uninstall 2014 before doing this.

This is one reason why I kept my old 2012 files on both Ancestry and FTM.

To go back to FTM 2012 all that is needed is to open the copy of the 2012 database using the 2012 program that you created before you upgraded.

If your problem is syncing with Ancestry, I would wait a couple of days, until Ancestry gets their act together. I do not have an online tree and I am having trouble getting information from Ancestry as it has been extremely slow and long halts the last couple of weeks.

Possibly Caused by all the new 2014 users trying to sync to their old online trees?

So your problems may not be with 2014 but with the connections to Ancestry. Note FTM checks Ancestry as part of the start up operations.

Option 1. If you backed up your FTM2012 file, or chose the option to make a copy when installing FTM2014, just open FTM2012. If you don't see it in the list of files in the Plan workspace, use File > Open > browse to find it.

Option 2: If you have made a bunch of entries that you don't want to lost in FTM2014, you might try File > Export > FTM2012 format and see how that works for you. I would be sure to put in its own directory separate from your FTM2014 file and related media folder, so that the related media folder gets copied, as well.
