Re: Diagram page numbers

I've stumbled across another method, that is to use a text box for the page numbers - but I suspect it was me bing dim in to seeing that before. :D

Re: Diagram: inserting background image

Thanks Jane and Mike. I'd got as far as options > background but had gone straight to options rather than click on the options in Generation stripes box.
Many thanks

Diagram: inserting background image

Is it possible to insert a background image to a diagram? I was thinking of putting a map of the family parish as a background.
Thanks

Re: 2nd marriage not showing on diagran of all relatives

Ah! all is now clear - what I didn't get before was that you couldn't add a second spouse to someone who was not a blood relative of the root person. Thanks to all for taking the trouble to reply.

Re: 2nd marriage not showing on diagran of all relatives

]I'm still confused - but thanks for all suggestions. The second spouse does indeed show up on "everyone" However what I can't understand is why one person can have two marriages showing and another can't .

2nd marriage not showing on diagran of all relatives

In a diagram I have a person with two marriages and both spouses show, however on entering a second marriage for a different person it has failed to show. Settings in Diagram options are the same.

Grouping - Diagram text box and picture

I had a text box with text and inserted a picture in it. Try as I might I couldn't group them - When I highlighted one then highlighted the other the first was un-grouped. Am I missing something ?
Thanks

Re: printing chart: B&W only and trim marks?

Thanks for that swift reply - print in grey-scale - of course how obvious now you tell me! Yes I agree normally there would be enough lines to mark the edge - I've a sparse family! Once again thanks - problem solved.

printing chart: B&W only and trim marks?

Trying to keep the print as simple as possible -is there a simple set up for just printing in black and white - and if so is there a way of putting trimming marks on the paper so as to make accurate aligning of the various parts - I realize a light background would do this but is there another way? ...

Font size

I've looked at previous answers to this- all very clear ( and read chapters 9 and 10 ) however still having a problem whilst I can change the font size of the "name" but if I try to change other items in "items used in this scheme" nothing happens. By this I mean I'd highlight "birth" and edit the f...

Re: Picture - how to remove?

Solved it! - selected as suggest then Edit > delete selected. However I would suggest caution in case you have selected more than one item and may delete more than you want.

Picture - how to remove?

I was experimenting putting a picture into a diagram - that worked - but how can I remove it? Yes I know it's an idiot's question but I've looked at the manual and can't see the answer - probably because it's so obvious -thanks

Marriage date showing for both spouses

Hi I've probably missed something, but on my diagram the marriage date is showing up on both partners. Is it possible to choose which partner it should be under?
I did import this tree originally as a gedcom file.

Re: borders or corner marks when printing

Thank you I should have put in the version, which is V.5. Unfortunately I do want to print with a white background and was hoping it would be possible to insert markers to indicate the sheet border.
