Adding text

Post by Alan » Sun Jan 18, 2009 1:28 pm

I haven't had Treedraw long and am still trying to get to grips with it, my question is.
When adding text to a persons details, the text interferes with the bar connecting the people below, do I select everyone below and move them down or is there an easier way ?
I have printed the manual, can anyone point me in the right direction please.

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 TreeDraw. It's versatility in being able to edit text and move data around is one of its best features.
