Family Tree Maker: How to Change Number of Generations

Family Tree Maker: How to Change Number of Generations

Depending on how large you'd like to physically print your chart, how many generations of genealogy you have completed, etc. you may want to change the number of generations displayed on your chart. 

Changing the number of generations displayed in your chart is easy. Here's how:

First, click on the Chart tab in the left sidebar. This will open the chart sidebar panel. Then simply slide the Generations slider to your desired number of generations.

A FEW NOTES:

  • If you have already imported data from either FamilySearch and wish to INCREASE the number of generations of data displayed, you will need to reimport your data as our family tree maker only imports the number of generations displayed currently to save time and storage space. To do so, simply go to the "Import" tab on the left sidebar, click "Clear All Cell Data" at the bottom of that panel, and then import again as normal.
  • Changing the number of generations displayed in your chart may change the price of your final chart download. 3-5 generations are the same price, 6-8 generations are the same price and 9-10 generations are the same price.

Here's a little video showing this feature in action.
