Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.

How to Print Landscape and Duplex (Intermediate)

There is a trick to printing a report in Landscape or in Duplex (double sided). You have to tell Legacy that's what you want AND you have to tell your printer. 

Open the Pedigree Chart Report. Notice on the right is a Printer Setup button.  Click that and you will see where to tell your printer to print Landscape.

You also have to tell Legacy. Go back to the main screen when you open the Pedigree Chart Report and click Report Options. Over on the right you will see Page Setup, Headers, Footers... Select that and make sure you are on the Page Setup tab and you will see this:

For Duplex, the Vertical option produces a list-style report where the pages are flipped vertically (more often used with Portrait). The Horizontal option produces a book-style report (more often used with Landscape).
