How do I design a chart?
Applies to: All Products
Answer:

TMG5 & FTST
Choose either Ancestor box chart, Descendant box chart, Ancestor fan chart, or Hourglass chart from the Report menu. From the Report Definition Screen click on the Options button. Examine all tabs and select any options you desire. If you need help with any of the options click on the Help button on the bottom right of the window. After you have made all your selections, then click on OK and you will be returned to the Report Definition Window. From there click on Make Chart and the resulting report will be automatically opened in TMG's charting tool, Visual Chartform.

You can then drag boxes or change the properties of any of the chart components. If you make fine adjustments, you may want to access the View menu and make the grid and/or ruler visible. The same menu includes an option to "Snap to Grid" which may help to align components that you move by dragging.


TMG4
Choose Ancestor wall chart, Ancestor fan chart, or Descendant wall chart from the Report menu. Specify on the Report Definition Screen (General tab) that the output should be directed to screen. Be sure to examine the other options that are available on the various tabs because they can have a dramatic effect on the output. Click on the Generate button and the resulting report will be automatically opened in TMG's charting tool, Visual Chartform.

You can then drag boxes or change the properties of any of the chart components. If you make fine adjustments, you may want to access the View menu and make the grid and/or ruler visible. The same menu includes an option to "Snap to Grid" which may help to align components that you move by dragging.

Note to Silver Edition Users
Only the Descendant chart with a top-down orientation is available.
