Is there any way to set the structure of the chart so that the first or oldest person is in the centre of the chart rather to the far right hand side?

Or in another way make the cart look more like one that you would normally draw.

Try this: 

1] Click on charts

2] Then click on Wall Chart

 

Do this after picking the first/oldest person of interest.

Maybe try Hourglass display.

 

It might not give exactly what you want. But try it. Try all of the options. Warning: some of these reports can get large and will require taping multiple sheets

together if you just have a small format printer.

Thanks for your comment.

This is going to sound really dumb but how do I access the 'hourglass' display?

I've only been using Rootsmagic for about 10 years :(

Thank you for your comment Bob.

Found the hourglass display but it would appear not to be activated in my software.

Still getting the tree with the first ancestor on the far right.

Is the hourglass display limited by the number of people in the tree, the one I am playing with at then moment has just 81.

Pick someone in the middle of your tree.
