That appears to be a system message rather than application specific, generated because there is not enough space on the disk drive which is the target of the save. If there is no other hard drive available then you could try saving to a USB memory stick (depending on how large the chart file is). T...

I did just that for a chart a couple of weeks ago. First of all you need to make sure that the image is sufficiently detailed (i.e. scanned at a high enough resolution) so that it doesn't pixel-late when stretched to the required size on the chart. Then you need to fade/watermark a version of the or...

Re: Moving marriage details

I'm completely new to Treedraw- just got a trial version yesterday and I'm pretty impressed so far :D I'm trying to move the marriage details of a couple so that it is between them, and not underneath the birth information for the husband. But when I click on it and try to move it, I can't seem to ...

Hello Jim,

One of the best features of TreeDraw (IMHO) is the ability to move every element of the chart however you like.

For your purposes I think you just need to group each box and its contents and drag them to wherever you like then lengthen/shorten/move lines to suit.

Yes, Steve, I know what you mean about trimming. I've certainly been there in the past and I'm sure others have had the same experience :) Producing a large printed version (i.e. larger than whatever page size is available) throws up the same hassles whatever program is used - though IMHO TreeDraw s...

The actual size of an A4 sheet, minimum margins and, consequently, largest size sheet of A4 will depend on the minimum settings within the printer you actually use - they all tend to vary. It is likely that you will always have to trim. As regards butting up, the extent to which you achieve a match ...

Re: Adding text

Hello Alan, I assume you mean that adding text results in Word Wrap (text being shown over multiple lines). There are two things you can do: 1. As you mention, move details of people up/down as necessary. 2. Select the text and uncheck Word Wrap on the Format menu. I'm sure you'll soon get used to T...

Thanks Nick. I understand the point about True Type/Open Type fonts. The Script font is "All res". The thing which strikes me as strange is that it appears to be only inclusion of a full stop which seems to cause the problem. I've tried typing a similar phrase in an Open Office document and the prob...

I just tried another experiment this morning, replacing "=" (as above) with "m," "m;" etc. It is only when a full stop is introduced that the problem occurs. I would guess, therefore, that it is something to do with the (Ascii?) code for a full stop which is being treated as a control character in t...

I've carried on playing around and actually managed to make the fonts display properly. In experimenting with editing a person details field I deleted the full stop from "b." and "d." and it worked. Editing marriage details to replace the indicator "=" with "m" has no effect (i.e. the font still dis...

Font displayed differs from preference setting

Helo Nick, I have been using TreeDraw since version 1 and have encountered an error which I have never seen before. I have been asked to form a chart using Arial Narrow, 12 point, Regular font for names and Script, 12 point, Regular for all other details (i.e. Person details and Marriage details). I...

To work on a different chart just save the chart you have been working on and then open the next one. That automatically "closes" the chart you have been working on. If you try to open a new chart without saving updates to the one which is already open the program will ask you if you wish to save be...

Re: Merging

After playing with this a bit, I see how to merge two trees. But it seems like I would have to merge many trees to get everyone on one tree... does that sound right? Has anyone out there actually done this? Any tips on how to go about it? Yes, we've done it regularly for customers. The most complex...

It's a pity that I couldn't have tried just one conversion of a TDR to a PDF file. I have some very big drawings and it would have been nice to have seen them converted. Just found this thread because we've been on holiday. If it's any help, John, I've created several large charts for customers whi...
