It would be very helpful if the relationship calculator allowed you to click on a particular relationship when many are shown, and then generate a relationship chart, detailing that particular relationship.

(The relationship chart in the reports menu only shows the closest connection.)

 

My great grandparents show 26 relationships to each other in the relationship calculator, with several duplicates in the list, I would also like to understand the duplicates.

 

I believe this is an often repeated feature request?  This would be so helpful, and would provide another reason to use RootsMagic over other programs. 

Actually the Ancestry DNA match system does this quite well, it found 6 ways I am related to a DNA match and shows the lineage and common ancestor for each match.

I'd like to add my voice to support the OP's request. It would be wonderful if the "relationship calculator allowed you to click on a particular relationship when many are shown, and then generate a relationship chart, detailing that particular relationship."

 

I'm working with an island-based, endogamous population that has lots of consanguinity. It's very common to have the Relationship Calculator show 2, 3 or even 4 relationships between two individuals.  Unfortunately, as the OP points out, a Relationship Chart can only be created for the closest relationship. This is a major problem for me. I've spent hours using Photoshop to create Relationship Charts for the other relationships.

 

Please accept my plea for modifying the Relationship Charting feature so that it can handle multiple relationships. Thanks.

Also please restore the "half-brother" & "half-cousin" designation on the charts.  It used to be there, but was eliminated several versions and years ago. Possibly as long ago as Family Origins.  I will concede that there is a clue when the top level person does not display a spouse.
