Subject: RE: [GENBOX] Boxed Chart Layouts

Tom - Thanks. Late last night I discovered that you make the choice *after*
you create the chart. I was expecting to do it *before*. The charts also
raise some other questions.
When a chart is so big that it splits across a page, how do you (a) keep the
split from running right through the middle of a box? (b) Is there any
provision for a "continued on page xx" notice to be generated when a chart
is split? (3) What is the option for repeating the next higher generation
information when a lower generation "splits" across multiple pages so that
you know how these people who have been split off belong to?

Cheri, go to File, Print Setup and select landscape. Depending on the
printer / printer driver you're using you can set any layout you want. For
example, I have sent very large charts to PDF files.
