I have developed some large wall charts and found a printer in the UK who can print off a roll up to 44 inches wide. These are a great visual tool for family gatherings - but so very time consuming to produce in usable format, as the system produces a chart 10-20 feet wide!
These are some of the challenges I face and would welcome any advice on how to solve them please!
- Media images - what file size and shape should I use to ensure that the image selected fills the space in the box? Most come out tiny whatever their resolution.
- Fields - there is no option to add fields for 'Suffix' or 'Nickname'
- Box size - can be altered when preparing the report, but there is no command to allow the boxes to expand from a standard size to fit the text - so many have to be adjusted manually. If you select a large box size - the reverse is true and the report becomes ever larger.
- The lines that link boxes are unstable and it is very hard to get them to 'line up' again after moving boxes. When you move a box, the lines hop all over the place and have to be individually dragged back. This is a very tedious process in large charts that need lots of tinkering!
ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME - THANKS
