I really love the Timeline View and I would like to export grid information to a text file, Word file, or PDF file. Even an Excel worksheet would help!

I've tried and failed to figure out how to do this. Can anyone help?

I'm really interested in the inclusion of the person's family events along with his/her own, so the normal Timeline Report isn't sufficient.

Happy Dae·

Use the Group timeline list option on the Timeline list report and select the people to include from Select from list or a Group.

Mark the father of the family on the Select People scrren list. Select Mark group, Descendants of highlighted person. On the next screen, select who to mark and the number of generations. If you don't want the individual facts of the children's spouses to print, choose Direct descendants only and mark the mother of the family separately after returning to the list.

Mark any other persons you want in the report such as stepchildren, etc.

Save the report in whatever format you wish. A rtf or pdf will be in column format. Save a text file with a .csv extension at the end of the file name and open it in Excel.
