Could the Double Frame Box Style with shadow be restored in RootsMagic 6? 

 

Also RootsMagic 3 displayed the name in the box charts in bold with the last name capitalized.  Could these features also be restored in RootsMagic 6? None of the options in Tools work for this in the box charts.

You can force the surnames to capitalize by going to Tools>File Options>General and checking the box "Display surnames in Uppercase".

 

Confirming I have added the enhancement request for the Double Frame Box Style in our tracking system.

There are box style options available in the Relationship Chart that are not in the Wall Charts. Perhaps those box options are what Aggie59 is looking for? I agree, it would be nice to have them available in the Wall Charts.

The Tools/File Options/General/"Display surnames uppercase"  doesn't work for the box charts.  Regardless of what you check or uncheck, the generated report displays the name un-bolded and the surname is in lowercase.  I think this is actually a bug in RootsMagic 6 that has never been fixed.  It works fine in RootsMagic 3.

My copy of Version 3.2.6 will allow me to bold the text in a Box Chart, but has no capability to "capitalize" (I presume you mean UPPERCASE) the last name.

Additionally, my copy of 6.3.1.0 allows the text to be unbolded or bolded correctly.
