Hi Robin.

This is a common problem on the Everyone chart as you are no doubt aware.

What we usually do is to select Cross Reference for the links, Bill
incorporated this feature many moons ago after a suggestion from us as too
many dashed lines do make the chart appear a mess, then with some careful
manipulation you can usually eradicate the Cross Link letters by moving the
boxes or groups of them closer together, they will automatically join up
with the double marriage line link when they are placed close together and
the cross link reference letter will disappear.

Kind regards,
