Family Tree Maker: How To Put Names On Fewer Lines

Family Tree Maker: How To Put Names On Fewer Lines

This is super easy! In the Family Tree Prints family tree maker app, if the name in any given cell is being displayed on more than one line, the app is recognizing the space between each name as a cue to go to the next line. Just replace the space between two parts of a name you'd like to remain on the same line with a ~ symbol. For example, if one of your ancestor's name is Peter Of Boveney Montague, it is probably currently being displayed as:

Peter
Of
Boveney
Montague

It would probably look much better as Peter~Of Boveney~Monague, which will appear as:

Peter Of
Boveney Montague.

 

To make this adjustment:

 

1. Staying on the main "Chart" tab, click on the cell in your chart you would like to edit. This will pull all the pertinent information into the sidebar panel of the family tree maker in an editable form.
