Change founder of the family ?

Hi,

First of all, thanks for your tool ! It's great, very easy to use and sooo scalable.

I made my family tree starting by me, but the purpose is to show my grand parents and the three following generations. I'd like to share it with everybody in the family but would love it if I could switch the focus to my grand-father or my grand-mother instead of me when I send the link.

I noticed that I could export and then re-import as someone else, but the pictures are not taken into account. If I could avoid reloading 90 images, I'd be kind of glad :-)

Thanks for your time, happy new year !

Marie

Great question, but I'm afraid at the moment there is no direct way to change the founder.

The only tip I can suggest for exporting and re-importing a different version is that if you also export your tree as a Dynamic HTML folder you will at least have all the photos in one place ready to add back in.

We will look into adding the option in future updates to Family Echo. Happy New Year!
