Re: Standard Diagrams - All Descendants

There is guidance on printing large diagrams as a single page PDF in the FHUG Knowledge Base here:  https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to:creating_a_single_page_pdf_of_a_diagram#printing-diagramwindow-largecharts

As you will see from the second paragraph, the maximum PDF page size supported by this method is 128" x 128".  So your 6 ft (72 ") chart should be fine. You can do it all using the inbuilt PDF printer in FH.

Thanks everybody for the information.

 

In return, I’m wondering if the following might be of help:

 

I have a very ‘wide’ tree with 13 generations and nearly 500 entries which is difficult to print. To deal with this, the system I have devised is to –

 

            Install a new PDF printer (Bullzip – Free . . totally easy!)

                        https://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php

               Print to a PDF file via Bullzip (Size A0)

                        This results in two pages Landscape (even at A0)

            Then use e.g. Adobe Illustrator to seamlessly join the two pages into one single page

            Take the result to a print shop that has a printer with continuous (roll) paper feed

            Print the result ~ 6 ft long (or scaled to size)

 

I hope this helps although I suspect that there are a variety of alternate approaches.

To clarify, strictly speaking, you are not actually choosing two Individual records but their joint Family record as the Diagram Root, so there still is only one root record.
