Family Tree Maker: How to Change Font

In personalizing your chart, you'll very likely want to experiment with different fonts. The good news is It's fast and easy to experiment to find exactly what you like. Here's how:


To start with, click on the "Advanced" tab in the left sidebar, then click the "Generation" tab in the Advanced settings sidebar.

In that sidebar, click the down arrow under the "Font" heading, which will show you a drop-down list of all available fonts. Click on a font name to see how it looks in your chart. You can also experiment with "Text Transform", the last item in the chart sidebar, which can turn all of your text to uppercase (or not).
