What's new in MacFamilyTree 10

MacFamilyTree 10 is by far the largest update we've ever released for our popular genealogy software. Version 10 comes with a huge number of new features and improvements, almost every section of the app was either re-developed or hugely improved.

New: Edit Section

  • Completely new edit section – redeveloped from scratch
  • Automatically adjusts to small and large screens to make the best use of the available space

  • Completely configurable: Specify which forms should be present when editing a specific entry and where they should appear
  • Separate edit and display mode: In display mode, only forms with information present will be displayed. In edit mode, all forms are shown
  • Use speech recognition to fill in long texts

New: Interactive Tree

  • The Interactive Tree now supports four different orientations (top to bottom, left to right, etc.)
  • Plethora of new configuration options like different colors, shadows and margins added. The new Interactive Tree is more configurable than ever in order to suite your needs
  • In addition to birthdates, the new Interactive Tree can display the generation number on Generation Bands
  • Lines, Generation Bands or the background can be configured with custom colors

  • Greatly enhanced performance – especially on older hardware, the number of frames per second is much higher than previously

New: Flat Interactive Tree

  • In addition to the 3D Interactive Tree, a completely new, flat Interactive Tree is now available offering a more traditional visual style
  • Seamlessly switch between the 3D and the flat Interactive Tree – the root person and the selected person are preserved when switching

  • The flat Interactive Tree optionally displays all person events for a person

New: Search Feature

  • Greatly enhanced alignment of persons in the Virtual Tree – even for complex family trees
  • Vastly improved performance: Most of the family trees will be displayed instantaneously without delay
