Saving to jpg - or something similar

Post by rfj1001 »

I've got a standalone tree of about 200 connected people about 20 of whom are DNA matched into my family via an NPE. All the DNA matches are flagged and an expression colour codes the boxes. So each match is very easily visible on the tree.

As a starter I'd like a newly discovered third cousin (another avid family researcher!) who features on this tree to be able to see this chart. Jointly, we can then start trying to solve the puzzle of the NPE

I tried playing around with pdf printing but it is showing 5000+ pages to print :(

Is there a way I can print or save the chart to a single image file?

... or is there an alternative way of achieving the same thing.


Many thanks

Hi Robin

Yes, you can do that.
With the Chart/Diagram in view, go to the menu Diagram > Save Diagram As... > PDF File (.pdf)...
Select the option shown below to output a PDF page that you can send to to your cousin to view in a PDF reader.

Follow the prompts to choose the FH PDF printer, which will then pop up a dialogue to choose location of output etc

Thanks Neil - sorted :)

I'd completely forgotten that the save options were under the Diagram Menu :(
