Workaround colour coding in FTM 2019

  • by

Color coding in Family Tree Maker 2019 is a great tool, but you can’t print a list of the ones who have been color-coded. Here is a workaround.

  1. Open a file
  2. Double-click a person
  3. Chose plus-sign and More
  4. Under Add Fact, Choose New
  5. Make a name under the Fact label – ex. Checked
  6. Make a choice from Fact Elements
  7. Finish your choices
  8. Click Add Fact

Note: This will not necessarily be a proper GEDCOM-tag.

Go to the front page and choose Customize View to the lower right. Choose the new Fact “Checked”, and click the right arrow. Click OK. It will now show as a new field under the person you are researching.

Make a List of Individuals Report

  1. Click Publish
  2. Choose Person Reports and List of Individuals Report.
  3. Click Create Report to the right.
  4. In the next menu click Selected Individuals under Individuals to include.
  5. Click Filter In, and All Facts.
  6. Choose Checked and Any Data under Date. The Conditions have to exist. Click OK. Click Apply. You will have a report of all the people you made a new tag for.
