Scale printing!!!

Need a scale control for printing!!!

My tree is 5x5 sheets using the smallest font and box style!

Many sheets contains only one box, and lot of the sheets are void. 

The sheets attached with scotch are terrible.

Really need a fit to 1 page function ;-) 

 

Thanks

There is an option to print to one page when you save your chart. 

(These instructions are for generating charts in Family Tree Builder)

When you click on the blue disc icon to save the chart the first screen asks you to choose a file format - PDF, JPG.

The second screen asks if you want to save the chart to one page or multiple pages.

This is not quite what the OP wanted.  

The screen asks if you want to save the chart to ONE LARGE PAGE or several smaller pages.   That is, you get a choice of, say, four sheets at 8.5 x 11 or one large sheet of 16 x 22.   You can then save the chart to a USB key, take that to a local business printer, and have them print the pdf or jpg on the single large sheet.

Yes, it is possible to shrink the image to fit a single 8.5 x 11 sheet, but doing so makes the print tiny and illegible; your charts are pretty wall posters bu, quite frankly, waste an atrocious amount of space.

What the OP wants -- and what I want and probably what many others want -- is a way to print a simple text-based pedigree chart for research purposes, records organization, and carrying around in a clipboard or binder.  For that, we don't need the humungous 6-pager with photos and fancy borders and such.

I keep comparing myheritage to ancestry.com and you keep coming up short.  I'm looking at a simple four-generation pedigree chart I printed at ancestry.com -- it's on a single 8.5 x 11 sheet, shows nothing more than name with dob and dod.  It's exactly what I want -- WHY CAN'T YOU PROVIDE THAT?

You can understand why I'm regretting spending money on FTB Premium when it won't do some simple basic things like print a one-page chart!

Hi,

From the last reply of the OP, thanking Rhianna for her answer, I think we can safely assume her answer was relevant to him.

 

Nevertheless, your question is valid as well.  The Charts feature was designed specifically for posters, and not for the use you mentioned.

What you can do is use the chart options menu to remove the personal photos from the chart, as well as facts you don't need. You can also change the font size of names, facts and title. Another option is choosing a chart style which is more efficient in space.

 

If you are interested in a specific part of your tree, you can generate a chart for that part only, by limiting the number of generations. A fan chart can also be useful for research purposes.

 

If you have an example of a better chart format for research puposes, please attach it here so that I can see what you mean.

 

Regards,
