Is there a way to choose the options that show on a Family Group Sheet? I have all kinds of stuff in mine (military, religion, occupation, etc). I would like to print one with just the basics ...name, birth, death, marriage .... etc ......... ........and is there a way to resize the photos? I usually end up with four people on a page and the next page has 2 lines on it .... ......... it seems like we had more control in the old "Family Origons: .... thanks ... Sandy

You can set what fact types are included in Family Groups Sheets by editing fact types in Lists > Fact Type List, unchecking "Family Group Sheets" under the "Include when:" heading. You have no control over the size of photos.

You could make a temporary copy of your database. Then edit the fact types as needed so that they do not display in the Family Group Sheet. Create the Family Group Sheets as needed. Then delete the temporary copy of your database.
If you do this, you do not have to go back to re-enable the settings for fact types to the factory settings. Tested in V7. It works.

The only report are the Reports, Lists, Ahnentafel (does not include children), or the narrative Ancestor reports with or without children.
You idea sounds like something to add to the RM wish list forum.
Try an ancestor report with children. First, go to the list of fact types and turn off reporting for all fact types that you do not want. However, this is so labor intensive that I have not tried it. Then you would need to turn fact reporting on again. Several years ago I had a wish list suggestion for this type of reporting. I proposed having multiple sets of fact arrays whereby certain facts could be turned on or off depending on the person who would get the report. With such a feature, the user would not have to keep turning fact reporting on and off.
