In Topic: Alignment of lines of descent

22 March 2019 - 11:45 AM

What it can show for descendants is relative to the focus person the chart starts with. It can't go outside of the focus person's spouse to show spouses', spouses.  I'm not even sure what type of chart would be needed for such a thing.

Sounds like a different database. Copying your tree to Ancestry using TreeShare shouldn't make anything in RM disappear. About the only other way to strips out notes is to not check the option in a GEDCOM export.

If they have the same fields, but the title is different you can still manually merge them on the Source List. You won't need to change the title only on the one you want to keep.

Help has not been updated to remove Sources as one of the Search and Replace options. Development is working full-time on RM8 right now.

If Parent 2 is the descendant

Parent 2 & Parent 1 = a child

In the descendant chart the child's line will come from parent 2, since they are the spouse of the descendant. It will not connect to the relationship line, but the person themselves. 


Parent 1 would not show their second marriage on the descendant chart where Parent 2 is the descendant. 


I understand you want the line between the relationship but the lines get really messy when there a several children and generations. It's very clear to see a line coming beneath the spouse of the descendant. It is the same concept used in the pedigree chart. In that case a line comes down from each parent and then the child is joined to that line. Maybe you need to look at the two a little closer to see what its doing. But, in this case you only have one parent with the drop down line.
