I have only had GenBox a couple of days and one of the first things I tried
with my imported gedcom was to produce a chart and save it as a JPG. I
could see everything on mine once saved irregardless of what resolution I
was viewing the chart at the time. The JPG produced was nearly 1mb in size
and was my direct line pedigree.
