  1. I thought I would share with you what you can do to create a chart that shows all persons in a project who are connected together. This single A0 (47" * 33") page has 254 persons on it. It was created in a number of steps and used flags to identify focus persons and overlaps of descendancy. The blue lines highlight the ancestry of a family but also shows the siblings and their descendants as far as they were recorded in the project. It is the result of 18 separate executions of Visual Chartform which have been edited and linked together. Where for the best use of space the chart has to be broken into pieces, then the curved dashed blue lines go between 2 boxes that represent the same person, usually a female who then becomes the wife in a more extensive chart piece. I present it to show that Visual Chartform is a very powerful creation and editing tool. RobinL
  2. I have finally found a Printing Service that can print my charts as long as I need, but he needs my files to be in PDF format. For months now I have tried every PDF creator that I have been able to download even Adobe Acrobat Pro but not one of them will create a PDF file longer than the magic 200 inches. The chart I wish to print is 13 metres long by 52 centimetres wide. I am happy to purchase a PDF Creator if I can just find one that will do the conversion. I have tried many of the suggestions in the forums including the excellent instructions from the Ottowa TMG Group to no avail. Any guidance would be very appreciated. Tauceti
