List of Features

Create Elegant, Functional Reports and Charts

The Reports and Charts Options Screen

Select from dozens of predefined reports, or create your own report layouts using the Custom Report.

Print most reports directly to the printer or PDF file or a text file. The Books reports can be printed to RTF (readable by most word processors, including MS Word) or WordPerfect format.

Most reports have an impressive list of options to choose from, so you can get just the information you want in a desirable format. Use the Preview option to see whether the options you have selected will produce the end result you are after.

You can even print reports in any language in the world, once you create or obtain a language module for that language.

Background Images on many Charts - Premium Feature*

For many charts, you can now include a background image. The background image can be placed on these reports:

  • Pedigree
  • Fan
  • Ancestry (Standard and Wall chart)
  • Descendant (Standard, Wall chart and Dropline chart)
  • Line of Descent
  • Calendar
  • Timeline

The image can be displayed with various opacity levels. You can even move background images around on the chart. As an example, you can create a birthday calendar for a month, where you set the page margins to .5 inches for left, bottom and right, but to 5.8 inches for top margin (this will put the calendar on the bottom half of an 8.5 x 11 paper), then put a picture on the top half of the page.
