Please consider usage of the beginning ancestor and last ancestor selector when printing reports.  I would like to emphasize (Embolden) any report to show the relationship of the selected Ancestor and descendant. While sharing reports with others, they may not know who is their direct relation in a family grouping.  Highlighting ones name (or something in the path of Ancestor / descendant) will show a direct path amongst what is sometimes a huge group of children.

You can get this now in narrative reports by selecting the options button and ticking "Print Uplines"

Bob,  Yes the uplines puts a notation# on the individual, but is not highlighted enough for someone unfamiliar with the report.  It is easy to say to someone new to see the bolded individuals for your direct relatives.

1] In Tools, Clear all colors

2] Pick the oldest person you want for the report

3] In Tools, Set color "Red" for descendants of the most distant relative, Either select spouse or not

4] Create a pedigree report for the desired person after enabling printing color coding

5] The resulting pedigree report will show a trail of individuals coded "Red"

6] Create a text report of ancestors for the desired  after enabling printing color coding and ancestors only

7] The resulting text report will show a trail of individuals coded "Red"
