If you are printing a descendant report that has a lot of generations it
can take several minutes, as long as 15 or 30 minutes. There will be longer
times between generations as there are probably more people in each
succeeding generation. The "not responding" message is a false message put
out by Windows if you happen to click on something during the generation.
The developers are aware of it but have not found a way around it. If you
let the report keep running it will eventually complete. My suggestion is
to start the report and go have supper or do something else for awhile.
