I posted earlier this year about saving then printing a wide chart using a print to pdf option.  I received some advice but not to the last query I posted.  I'm going to Italy next week to meet many family members I've never met and would love to bring them this chart that shows family on both sides of the Atlantic.  I'm running out of time - if I could generate this pdf with no breaks I could print it at a local print shop.  Here is the text of my latest query describing my status:

"I posted a few weeks ago about chart printing and I'm still having problems.  I'm running TMG 9 on a Mac using Parallels and Windows 10.   I've created a descendant box chart containing 104 people spanning seven generations.  When I go to TOOLS>DIAGRAM>RESIZE I learn the chart is 92.34 inches wide and 10.45 inches tall.  I have several options to save the chart as a pdf, but none of these options permit me to adjust the paper to these dimensions.  

1. Print to PDF (Mac Desktop) lets me use the Postscript Custom Page Size option to adjust to a maximum of 17W by 36H

2. Microsoft Print to PDF does not let me access Postscript Custom Page Size

3. QPDF Creator lets me use the Postscript Custom Page Size to a maximum of 78.7x by 78.75

4. Wholly Genes PDF Writer v4 does not let me make any adjustments.  

I'd like to have it printed commercially in a large, single page format.  I can save it as a bmp but I understand the finished product would look better if run from a pdf. I've left most of the default chart options as default.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Duncombe,

I always used the Visual Chart function of TMG for wall charts. It works spectacularly. Look it up in the Help Index.
