Not possible to add existing people to other families


It is not currently possible to add currently defined people as spouse/parent to oother families.
Suppose we have created a family (father X1 and all the kids including i.e. D1). Now D1 is a spouse of another person in another family, it is not possible to define this or make this relationship. The same is true for parents.

Seems like we should be able to import additional GedCom files and link them into the existing family as well.

You can always open the .family file and add them manually. A quick solution to this is to show a treeview (or listview) of all current people with their relatives under them. At the end of each user you can add a new relationship and point it to any other user. Of course, it would have to automatically create the reverse link cause otherwise it won't work, as I learned.
