I think I had posted this note sometime in 2011. It is sort of related to the above comments and makes interesting Wall Charts and other reports. In all honesty, some of the wall charts are so large that it is not practical to print them on 8 1/2 x 11 paper..
Suppose you would like a report showing color coded early deaths in your family tree. For some arbitrary reason, you want to highlight deaths occurring from age 30 to 39. It takes far less time to try this technique than to document how to do it.
1] Go to Tools and select Color code people
2] Select Clear all colors and click OK. WARNING! Note that those users who have created a permanent complex color coding scheme will want to do this on a copy of their permanent data base.
3] Go to Tools and select Color code people, Keep the default color Red or change it as desired
4] Click on People selected from list, click OK
5] Click on Mark group
6] Click on Select people by data fields
7] Select field death
8] In the second block, select age
9] In the 3rd block, select greater than or equal
10] In the 4th block, enter 30 to establish the lower limit
11] On the next line keep and in the leftmost block
12] Again Select field death
13] Again select age
14] Select less than or equal
15] Enter 39 to establish the upper limit
16] Click OK RootsMagic will display the count of marked individuals
17] Try a pedigree report. Any ancestors with a death age from 30 to 39 will be color coded Red.
18] Try a narrative report for ancestors. Again ancestors with early deaths will be will be color coded Red.
19] Try a narrative report for ancestors and children. Early deaths of aunts and uncles at each generation will be colored Red in addition to direct ancestors.
20] Try a wall chart showing multiple generations. Early deaths will be will be color coded Red.
After trying the above steps, it is possible to make a new selection for deaths occurring from age 40 to 59 or other non-overlapping age ranges. Remember to change the color from Red. I have not tried more than two colors.
