"You can't print directly from the Relationship Calculator, but you can
print the Relationship Report. However, depending on the distance in
relationship of the 2 individuals you are comparing, the resulting report
can be more than a single page. RM doesn't seem to do any report to a
"single page-wall chart" type of report, which is disappointing. Perhaps
a future version will correct this."

Thank you.

That's a rampant bummer.

I did the relationships between Sir Winston and Prince William and got 1400
cousin relationships. The calculation ran smoothly, sans choking and
aborting ---- in the demo. So THAT programmer did his job competently.

But I want to print it as a LIST ---- not some damned multi-page box chart.

It sounds as if they are just building up steam on this program.

_RootsMagic 4.3_ may be worth looking at. But they need to get on with it and
not do this silly half-arsed, crawling, pseudo-upgrade flimflammery.
