Here's a solution for you:
1) On the Ancestor Chart Options: Links tab, set "Descendant Stubs" to
2) On the Layout tab, check "Descendant Stubs"
You can also see one or more generations of descendants off the ancestors
before the arrows indicate remaining descendants by setting the number of
descendant generations on the Section tab to 1 or more.
