This is probably the best option. You get a leaf when a new "fact" appears - you do not have to keep ignoring all the "tree" (mostly) garbage ;-) I suspect that "fact" data is not synced with Ancestry - I suspect that each program is using the same logic - ignore a "fact" if it is already in your tree. Like someone said, hints are not "synced" between products. If you turn on these options there is probably no need to do so.
