Control the Formatting of Your Family Tree Charts Using Charting Companion

You are in control of formatting your family tree charts when you choose Charting Companion™. You will also enjoy the extensive search and display capabilities, including on screen navigation through most charts. No genealogy database program gives you as much flexibility and style. Explore the examples below and see for yourself.

Show More Data on Each Family Tree Chart

You can show more data on each page using Charting Companion's left to right Descendant layout option – not available in Family Tree Maker® or other genealogy database programs. You can also customize page size, text spacing, line width, as well as font styles and sizes, in order to fit more family records on a chart.

Enjoy 16 Million Colors, Gradients and Beveled Edges

Charting Companion gives you access to 16,000,000 colors, including gradients and beveled edges, so you can create unique and impressive genealogy charts. As you know, when it comes to color printing, “what you see” on the screen is not always “what you get” at the printer. Using Charting Companion you're not stuck with pre-determined colors as you are, for instance, with Family Tree Maker. Instead you get full control over colors – so you can refine your printed charts to get just the right shade!

Create Professional Grade Book Reports

Charting Companion gives you full control over formatting and pagination of your book reports when you print directly to Microsoft Word® or WordPerfect®. It also lets you create footnotes at the bottom of the page for citations, and an index table at the end of the book – giving you professional quality reports.

Outline Descendant with Recap

Enjoy the Outline Descendant Recap Feature

Charting Companion's Outline Descendant charts provide a “recap” feature at the top of the page that Family Tree Maker and other genealogy database files do not have. This makes it much easier for you to follow where a person is located in your lineage from one page to the next.
