Hi Dave, Tony, Phil,

Sometime ago my daughter's partner printed a family tree of about 1100
people for me on a plotter and I ended up with a printout about 8 feet long
by about 3 feet wide (width of the paper roll) it would otherwise have been
on about 60 sheets of A4. He works with CAD and I'm not sure how he did it,
all I gave him was a floppy disc with the 'Chart' output file from my
Reunion Program. I will be seeing him the end of next week and will ask him
if anyone wants to know how it's done!
