With flip nodes, you can have quick access to a profile’s basic information, DNA markers, a peek at the About section, a brief summary of the profile’s history, and a description of how the profile is related to you. You will also have easy access to additional actions right in the tree.

In the display settings, check the box for “Flip” nodes under the layout options. This will enable flip cards to display on the tree when you hover your mouse over a node. Check the box “Click to ‘flip’ nodes” if you prefer to click on a node to view the flip card.

After checking the option to flip nodes, the yellow arrows will disappear from the tree view. But don’t fret! From the flip card, you can easily edit the profile or add additional relatives to the tree.
