Question from Ian:
Is there a way to delete specified branches when printing a chart? This would allow certain families to be printed, but ignore those of little interest for that particular chart.
Answer from Millennia:
Yes Ian, this is certainly possible. But only if you are using Legacy Family Tree. Say you want to create a Descendant Chart in Legacy Charting where the starting couple has ten children. Suppose you only want to show the descendants of children 1-4. Follow these steps to suppress children 5-10 from the chart.
- In Legacy, open the Individual's Information screen for children 5-10. In the lower right, mark the child as being "Private". Click Save and repeat for each child.
- Launch Legacy Charting. On the Home tab, click on the Privacy Options button, and place a check mark next to "Suppress private individuals". (See image below.)
Your Descendant Chart will now only show the descendants of children 1-4. To again show all children, simply deselect the "Suppress private individuals" option.
