Question about Family and Person Notes in FTM2012

Question about Family and Person Notes in FTM2012

I have two questions about Notes (I apologize if this is already covered somewhere but if it is, I couldn't find it):

1) When I upgraded from FTMv8 to FTM'12 and then uploaded my family tree to Ancestry, all of the Person Notes uploaded fine. However, after I made a change to a Person Note in FTM'12 & Synced the changes to Ancestry, the new Person Note wasn't uploaded. Is that normal?

2) I can't see where any of my Family Notes from FTMv8 show up anywhere in Ancestry. Is that normal?

It's been awhile since I had a version that old; but from what I recall:

The Old Person Note is now called Person Note.

The Old Family Note is now called "Relationship Note" - which is a common note between a husband and wife.

As the progression has taken place to sync FTM with ancestry, it is my understanding that ONLY the Person Note syncs, ie is uploaded to ancestry - and even then can only be seen by the owner and editors.

All other notes are currently not synced. Which is a drawback for those of us that make extensive use of Fact Notes.
