Don - If you find the secret, let me know. I have the following individual
in my DB:
Rafael Maria de la Luz Felix Enrique Agustin del Sogrado Corazon de
Jesus Baz y Dresch
and when I generate a Pedigree I only get this much of the name:
Rafael Maria de la Luz Felix Enrique
I thought that perhaps the name was really there, but simply hidden but
changing the layout to landscape in MS Word doesn't even yield the full
name. Maybe Bill has some thoughts or perhaps this is on the drawing board
Wish I could be of help, but I could use some myself!

Subject: [GENBOX] Long names and pedigree charts
I have some ancestors with really long names. When the names print out on
pedigree charts, unless the font size is microscopic, the name is truncated.
I'm sure others have encountered this. Is there a way to get the full names
to print out, perhaps on two lines, in a normal size font?
Another question: Although I seem to check the appropriate boxes, there
doesn't seem to be any indication regarding duplicate ancestors on the
pedigree charts. As I recall (although it's been a while), TMG would at
least include a reference that "ancestor #X is the same as ancestor #Y.
