Re: Size of my chart. #new


Edward Sneithe
 

Thank you for all your suggestions. I may be able to use Stephens suggestion but I would not use the A3 but separate my chart into two pieces that I can get printed at my local printer. In B&W a print this zize will be less than $15. I can then cut the paper off at the end  and glue/tape them together to form a very large chart.
 
 Sometimes we get suggestions that don't answer the question directly but provide a whole new way of addressing our genealogical problems. My-History.co.uk has many useful items I can use. Thank you David.
 
 I will continue to look at PDFs but so far I have not been able to get the whole chart on one page and still be readable. The last chart I used the "both" chart which is not as full as all relatives therefore stayed small enough to fit into many formats.
 
 I looked at genealogyprinters.com but they work off  gecom and I don't have the same control as I do by using FH and my print would cost me about #82 which is more than my local printer.
 
 For the time being I will try to structure two charts the can be cut and taped together.

Edward many years ago I emailed my family tree to a company who printed it in a long roll of paper which I gave to a cousin in Canada when I went to meet them. Sorry I can't recall the company but think it was based in Rotherham.
If this company still exists they could do this for you

Edward - you may have already tried this. If the print to pdf dialogue says that the pdf will be on two pages, abort, go to diagram options and reduce the scaling to 50%. The diagram will then fit on one page. Use the same technique to reduce the scaling for multiple pages.

Alternatively contact My History who specialise in both Family Historian and pdf printing.
