Hey Folks - 

 

I am an old TMG user who is slowly switching over to RootsMagic.

 

One report I really miss is the compressed pedigree (example below). I like that it fits on one page and gives a quick look at the pedigree of an individual. I can't get RM to show more than 6 generations on a page.

 

Has anyone figured out how to replicate this using RootsMagic?

 

Thanks for any ideas/tips.

 

Christina

You can make a wall chart with more generations, but there is no compressed pedigree.

The closest thing is Reports>Charts>Box Chart>Ancestors with the Format option set to "Single line with birth and death date (no boxes)". It lacks the Marriage event and places for events that are evident in your example from TMG. To get those, you have to go to the multiline format or word-wrapped format (which uses less vertical space) and set the box style border type to "None". Examples of both are linked via the thumbnails below. This report will paginate but you can choose larger standard and custom sizes and get up to 32 generations.
