One-page (8.5 x 11 in.) 4-generation Ancestor box chart with siblings.

Tip for adding VCF report configurations: Start with a new configuration named 'No Data' (deleting all the default data types) so you will have an easily modifiable base configuration from which to make new named definitions with any combination of data types.

Boxes, width 144 pixels
Box color: Custom color - light turquoise
Lines: Sibling lines - gray dotted (may not show on some printers)
Text Names - Tahoma 8 R
Title - Lucida Handwriting Regular 12
Other / Misc - Include siblings, Remove blank lines
Other / Identifiers - ID Number
Other / Text Alignment - Center
Other / Lifespan - birth year - death year
Images - on right
Data Types: Lifespan

Manually colored direct-line boxes to make them a darker turquoise color (see VCF Palette instructions here).
Inserted a carriage return before names in boxes with photos
Moved Title to the bottom and added a space between each word in title
