I agree with Nick that it might be a driver problem. We used to use an Epson Stylus Color 1520 and that was fine until we moved to Windows XP and had to use the Windows 2000 driver. That's the only problem we ever had with printing from TreeDraw. We've now upgraded to a Stylus Pro 4400, running unde...

I've just looked at the Microsoft web site again and see that they have now made the download available.

From the tone of their message, though, it appears that they have done so reluctantly and still have their pet lip out :)

Having just bought a new Vista laptop I followed the link to the MS web site where I found a message "The download for Windows Help is still in development and will be available in early 2007." I've complained to Microsoft that it is now early 2007 . IMHO this is pig ignorance on the part of Microso...

I'm sure Nick is right. We have a number of different programs and I can't think of one which caters for same sex marriages. One way of getting round the problem would be to store details of the partner in the Notes section for the family member concerned. Those notes can then be imported by TreeDra...

There are programs which generate All In One charts but IMHO the results are awful. Either the data is all over the place or there are crossing lines or both. To a great extent it isn't the programmer's fault as it's very difficult to cater for all the different sets of family relationships which ne...

I'll take your word for it Bob - but I'll leave the workaround to you and stick to a machine designed for multi-page prints :D

Scary - I think I'll stick to the Epson for long charts. :D

Hi Frank, I've been thinking back to the days when I used to print charts on A4 and stick the pages together. What I used to do was ensure that there were only lines (not text) at the page breaks, which made lining up a bit easier. I have a suggestion for a work-around which might help you. If you s...

Crop marks to facilitate joining pages

Whilst I appreciate the usefulness of crop marks for people using A4 (or A3) printers may I just make a plea that, should they be implemented, it is as an optional feature. We print out on banner paper - for example a chart last week which was 6 x A2 page equivalents. The way we achieve this is to p...

That's an interesting suggestion Desmond. Although Legacy is one of the many programs we have I'm not all that familiar with it's features - I've used Brothers Keeper for my own data since the old DOS days. Possibly users of programs other than Legacy may not be able to view pedigrees in the same wa...

It is sometimes useful in these situations to start out by generating an Ancestor chart for the youngest person in the database. In that way you will normally identify all (or almost all) the "end" ancestors from whom each descendant tree must be drawn.

Further to Nick's reply. There are some instances of certain programs offering alternatives - e.g. CHR (for Christening) instead of BAPM (for Baptism). All you have to do is to check the settings in the Export routine for the software you are using and ensure that they match those which TreeDraw is ...
