I note that when I generate "cascading Family Group sheets ( or Pedigree charts) that it takes forever to generate the pdf.

 

i.e.  when you are printing a given form (pedigree chart, FGS etc.) for all the ancestors of a given person - it just seems to take forever to build the pdf. 

 

It all works fine - just takes so much time that it is unacceptable - like various minutes for even something like 20 FGS's.

 

I do the same thing on a competing vendor app - and it takes seconds . . .

 

I use RM 7.6.3 on a Windows 10 with 16GB Ram and plenty of hard drive space.

 

(this even happens when doing like only 5-6 generations)

That would be correct with Family Group Sheets. This is why we don't encourage doing a mass amount at one time. The time to generate grows exponentially. It has something to do with the report engine. There will be a new one in RM8.
