    Erroneous info here….clicking “clear all colors” erased all color coding, not just for the current person!

    1. If you are using color for ancestors or descendants then it will clear colours from all person. If you have more questions related to Family Tree maker color coding. Please call family tree maker support +1-888-299-3207
