      One solution is to install the Generic-Text only printer driver and
      select FILE: as the port.

      After you "print" the report to this printer, you will be promted for
      the file location/name. When done, you can edit the file, or copy and
      paste the text to something else. Adjusting your report parameters will
      reduce the amount of editing.

        I once used a program, I think it was Brother's Keeper, that could produce a

        report showing the links between a single ancestor and a single descendant.

        This was produced as a text file that could be imported into an e-mail or or

        news message.

        Legacy does a similar report, but it has graphics and fancy formatting, and
        can only be exported as a graphics file.

        Is there any way of producing a text report in Legacy, other than printing
        it
        out and then retyping it all?

        Are there any other programs that can produce such reports?

        Or will I have to reinstall Brothers Keeper 5 and GEDCOM my data across?

          Someone on the newsgroup gave me the answer -- use the relationship
          calculator (which doesn't appear in the reports menu, but under Tools, I
          think). It has the option of text output, which can then be edited in a word
          processor.
