Becoming a power user

Becoming a power user

I have had many questions over the past couple of years, and thought of a number of things I wold like to see in FTM. Much to my surprise, most of these have already been included. One example is copy and paste facts to other family members.
Anyway, I have read the supporting documentation available, and at one point bought the extra books to read. I have not found anything that is comprehensive. It seems like FTM is so much more powerful than the documentation outlines, and I think many users may be missing great opportunities. I also think the company is missing a great opportunity to sell more copies of the software.
Does anyone know of a resource for learning more of the hidden features of FTM? An advanced users guide, a list of tips and tricks... Maybe that could be a new thread here???... Tips and tricks we have all found useful?

A GOOD starting point is http://ftmuser.blogspot.com/ Hosted by Russ.

You will find that a lot of Tips and Tricks are using webinar's and Youtube type of videos.

Also do a Google on "Family Tree Maker" with quotes and then add Tips and Tricks not in quotes and you will find a lot of hits.

The best book for would be power users onFTM is, "Beyond the Basics" by Tana Pedersen- "a guide for advanced users"

I also commend the FTM knowledge base with many excellent articles on FTM. These are constantly being updated
