Subject: RE: [TMG] Fonts in Pedigrees

Michael,

I'm still using 4.0d and I have a tremendous choice of fonts. I do most
of
my printing in Arial 8 and use 10 or 12 for titles.

The problem I have is with indented charts. Whenever the information for
an
individual requires more than one line, the second line always begins at
the
far left of the page instead of assuming the same indentation as the
first
line. I find it extremely annoying to have to edit every chart by
setting
hanging indents for each and every occurrence and losing the continuity
of
the interconnecting graphic lines. Are you experiencing the same thing?

I'm told that TMG just doesn't have the ability to handle hanging
indents
and, what amazes me, is that no one on this list seems to think that it
matters. To me, it's a no-brainer. No one would want a word processor
that
required you to manually set the indentation for every line
individually,
yet this is what TMG is telling my word processors to do. I use both
Word
and WordPerfect, but it makes no difference.

I'm led to believe that TMG 5.infiniti won't be any better unless there
is a
heavy demand for it and, from the response I've had so far, there
doesn't
seem to be much chance of that. The best method I've found is to feed
the
file back to an old version of Family Tree Maker, PAF, or any of the
less
"full-featured" programs that produce excellent indented charts.

There certainly is a way to solve your font problem and I'd be
interested to
have comments from you and others concerning indentation.

Regards,

Al

When I try to create a pedigree chart and print it to a MS Word
document, I do not have the ability to select fonts. I am forced
to use Courier New either 8 or 10pt.

I am using version 4.0d. Is there a solution to this situation?

Thanks,
Michael
