Re: Standard Diagrams - All Descendants
There are a few things you can do:
1. Rather than move Luke George to the right (which might cause other parts of the main diagram to shift in odd ways at the same time), move the children of Johanna and John to the left. You can do this by opening the Movement Control Box and selecting Box and Bar move. You will then be able to 'grab' the bar above the children (Peter and Kirsten Hanson) and drag it to the left. This should give enough room to overlay the two Johanna boxes.
2. Once you have overlaid the two Johanna boxes, right-click on any of the boxes in the inserted tree and choose Order > Send to Back. this will put the purple Johanna box behind the yellow one so that the visible box is the same colour as the others in her row.
3. In Diagram Options, main tab, Sundry Colours, choose Marked Boxes (top of the list) and select the same pale yellow colour. Click OK. Now in the diagram right-click on John Hanson's box and select Mark. His box should now be the same colour as Johanna's. (I don't think you can also make their children's boxes the same colour as Luke's box unfortunately.)
The resulting diagram will have the date of Johanna's marriage to John in John's box, and the date of her marriage to George in her own box. I don't think there is an easy way of getting both her marriages to show in one box in this scenario.
Once you have arranged things, use Diagram >Save Diagram as
> Family Historian Chart, giving it an appropriate name. The
saved chart can then be viewed again later from View > Saved
Charts. You need to be aware that if you make any changes or
additions to data which affect the main tree this may cause parts
of the tree to move and the inserted tree may no longer be
accurately aligned and may ned to be moved again.
I hope this helps.
