I like the wall chart shown in RootsMagic 6.  You can choose an image for a background, have individual photos, and change the placement of boxes in the tree.  When I tried to make mine it didn't include the photos, even though I had checked the box to include photos.  It also didn't word wrap names, but I could fix that by stretching the box.


Am I missing something, or is this a bug?

The only photo that will be output for a person is the one tagged to the Person, not those tagged to Family, Facts/Events, Sources, Citations...


Word-wrap is not a feature. It and/or auto-sizing of boxes to fit might be nice.

I just tested a 10-generation Ancestors wall chart, set to build left-to-right. Both long names (given & surname, plus record number) and long place names DID, in fact, word wrap within the 1"x3" boxes that I had previously set.

Make sure you added the photos with the Media Type as Image. Can you see the primary photo in the info box inside RootsMagic on the individual? Are there any red boxes on those images?
