Re: [S-R] Using Family Tree Maker
A couple of issues to consider:
1. What version of Family Tree Maker are you using? I have Version 11
dated 2003 and under File there is an option to Export any FTM report to
Acrobat PDF file.
2. You did not state which FTM family report you are trying to export.
Some of the reports are only available on multiple pages due to their size.
An alternate would be to select fewer individuals or generation for your

Subject: [SPAM] [S-R] Using Family Tree Maker
Is there special preparation to send a chart to Acrobat Reader (PDF)? I
tried and the chart turns out to be clumped all to together on one page.
When I select multiple pages instead of one page it turns ouot ok but the
pages have to be connected (making it difficult to print on one lage sheet
Any advise to make a large printout of a family chart (All-in-One)?

- Your problem might be the printer rather than the software.
If you want it on one letter sized sheet and you have more than a few
generations, they'll be bunched together. I would guess what you might
need is to print to an 11x17 or large format printer to accommodate
the number of generations [boxes] you have. [A pedigree chart might
not have the boxes but it's still the same problem.]
You might try Kinko's http://fedex.kinkos.com/fpfk/FPFK2_HowToUse.pdf
Check on which printers your local Kinkos has. I know that if you go
to a larger format printer: 36" by length of TBD inches it get pricey
at ~$10 square foot of output.
P.S. Maybe the software download will list the available printers. I
haven't done that.
