I have linked TreeDraw to Legacy Family Tree. The Ancestry chart works fine. The Descendant chart doesn't. In the descendant chart some names are SURNAME, FirstName (as desired in preferences) and others are FirstName SurName. Also in descendant Chart married couples are linked in the same box as each other, yet in Ancestry Chart they are seperated (desired). Why?
Is there support for drop shadows behind the boxes?

BTW - I updated to the most recent version.

Hi,

Please check that you have also set your preference in "Options | Preferences | Import fields | Child's name".

The layout is different for descendant trees because of the possibility of multiple marriages for each parent; this is not a possibility in ancestral trees.

There is no shadow option for boxes.
