Above the Document Viewing Window are several controls for working with information in VyTräd.
Click the Root button to select another Root Directory. This will launch a dialog to allow you to navigate to another directory on your computer.
Type a name (or date or other information) or select an item in the drop down list to the right of the Search button. Click the Search button to do the search. If a match is found, the directory with the matching information is selected and highlighted in the Directory List. The number of matches in the family tree is displayed as well. To find the next match, click the Search button again. Searches are conducted on directory level information only. File names are not included. When the program is opened, the search drop down list contains the previous ten search targets from the last time the program was used.
You can bookmark directories in the current family tree as you are working. This enables quick navigation back and forth to the bookmarked directories. Click the Go To Next button to move to the next bookmarked directory. Click the Add button to bookmark the currently selected directory. Click the Remove button to remove the bookmark on the current directory. Click the Remove All button to remove all bookmarks.
Bookmarks are not tied to the Root Directory. If bookmarks are saved for another tree, expected matches likely will not happen or no matches at all may result. Bookmarks are also saved when the program is closed and are reloaded the next time the program is started.
Click the Import button to launch a dialog that allows you to import your family tree and create the directory structure used by VyTräd to organize documents and files. See the Import Your Family Tree page for more information.
