We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when you ask us questions because we want to be sure you know exactly how to create a family tree that's perfect for your family. We figure if one person has a question, other's probably do too so we like to share our fleshed out answers with everyone in the hopes this may help someone in the future. Today's real customer question is:
Q: Can any of the colors be slightly altered in the charts?
A: Short answer, Yes!
You have ultimate control over each and every color in your family tree chart. We have several tutorials about colors that will give you very specific details, but the gist is that you can easily explore all of the pre-create color palettes available in our family tree maker ("Advanced" tab > "Palette" tab) or change the colors for segment individually to any color in the world. You can also change the line color, text color, and band color!
Here's a break down of with what granularity you can change colors.
On a chart-wide basis:
- Color palette (aka to a new pre-defined color palette)
- Line color
On a generation-by-generation basis:
(This means that these parameters must be the same within any given generation, but can be different for each different generation. You can update a full generation at once.)
- Band color
- Text color
On a cell-by-cell basis:
- Individual background color
