Thanks for the reply. Yes I'm aware of the use of gedcom. This is why it takes so much work to duplicate in one which you do in the other. It's difficult to keep notes on what changes are made unless working in both at the same time... on top of being time consuming. It also means I can't easily allow collaboration on my ancestry tree as it's not easy to then go back and see what others might have changed. I did see the news with Legacy/MyHeritage... very exciting.
