Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Reports Toolbar (Beginner)
The most commonly used reports are directly on this toolbar; Pedigree Chart, Family Group, Statistics Report, Ancestor Book, Descendant Book, Descendant Narrative Book, and the Multiple Lines of Descent Book. For the other reports you will click the down arrows next to Chart Reports and Other Reports. I think you will be surprised to see how many different reports Legacy has!
This is where you can access the Publishing Center as well as the Questionnaire, Research Log (a standard blank form that you can print), and the Forms Center (a collection of other useful blank forms).
The Legacy Charting icon will initiate the Legacy Charting program which runs independently from Legacy itself. The Last Report icon will open the last report type you were working on which is a handy shortcut.
Next time we will look at the Tools Toolbar.
