FTM2014 - Menu Bar

This hasn't changed in FTM2014, but a couple of the menu items have changed


The top row is the Buttons to the various Workspaces. The Workspace that is hi-lighted is your current workspace.
  • Plan
  • People
  • Places
  • Media
  • Sources
  • Publish
  • Web Search
 At the far right of that top line is the Sync Status (covered in another blog post)

Below the Workspace buttons, is the Family Tree Maker Menu Bar. Like the Workspace button, this Menu bar is always on your screen.
  • File
  • Edit
  • View
  • Person
  • Tools
  • Help
