I know I can manually create a person box when developing a wall chart, but can I add a specific box from my RM database?  For example, I am creating a wall chart for a family reunion of the paternal side of the family.  I start with my dad's box, but would like to add those of his two brothers below his on the pedigree chart with links to their mom and dad without having to manually create them.  I don't have a lot of experience creating wall charts so I may be missing something in finding a way to do this.  Thanks for any help provided.

I would do this by:

1 - create the full ancestors chart for your Dad, showing all the generations desired

       LEAVE RM CHARTS OPEN

2 - create a descendants wall chart for your Dad, showing 2 generations

        LEAVE THIS SECOND COPY OF RM CHARTS OPEN

3 - copy & paste the desired boxes from chart #2 to chart #1

4 - add the missing lines for chart #1

5 - save chart #1 and discard chart #2
