Once the FTM2017 File is uploaded and Linked to the AMT, hints will appear in FTM2017, as I hoped I described in the Blog Post.

+Cindy K,

Sounds like you have a FTM2017 File, and an Ancestry Member Tree (AMT) that are NOT Linked and in Sync.

IF that is true, then FTM2017 will NOT receive any Hints from Ancestry.com. This is different from Previous Versions of the program.

There may be Hints on the AMT​ with the small portion of that file, but they will not make it into FTM2017.

That is why this blog post is trying to illustrate.
