Does anyone know what software if any that will give you a all in one tree that you can print out as such

FTM2012 calls it's current version of the all-in-one tree the Extended Family Chart. I don't have the slightest idea why they changed the name - since everyone knows what an all-in-one chart is and nobody knows what the extended family chart is.

It is primarily of use to group people in clusters who are not related to each other so that they can be exported and deleted out of a person's file. Somebody could probably actually print it on paper, if you don't have too many people in your file.

Note the FTM Extended Family Chart has a Person Finder in the bottom right of the chart so that you can find people in a large chart.

This company advertises a stand-alone reporting packgage that include all-in-one, that works on gedcoms:

Here is somebody who will do one for you. But notice that 1500 people goes up to 30 feet wide and 3 feet tall.

Why does the Extended Family Chart not meet your needs?

AS far as I can recall of the old report (altho it's been awhile), all they've done is change the name of the report.

It will show everyone related to a person by blood or marriage; which is what the all-in-one report did.

Are you suggesting there is something different between the two reports?

And the big plus of the Extended Family Tree (EFT) over the all-in-one tree in FTM 16 and earlier is that the EFT preserves generational integrity so all similar generations are on the same row.

The all-in one-tree was all over the place especially if you used it in its so called compact mode which scrambled the birth order!!!

The other nice thing about the EFT is that it has a people finder which works very well. People finder is in all the other charts, but you can really use it in the EFT

Finally with the EFT (and the other charts) you have the marked box feature which lets you work right down to each box (or group of boxes if you wish).

"FTM2012 calls it's current version of the all-in-one tree the Extended Family Chart. I don't have the slightest idea why they changed the name - since everyone knows what an all-in-one chart is and nobody knows what the extended family chart is."

The names were changed when FTM 2008 was implemented -----But it was more than a name change---They also changed the software and philosphy - so the FTW 2006 tree is not the same as the FTM series of trees

To add a little to Johndd comments

If you had a very large amount of people in your data base the FTW version became very very large and sometimes it would not run to completion. Personally I liked the FTW version better than the new FTM version, except I had reached a stage where the total all-in-one chart would not run to completion if I tried to include all people.

The FTM version suffers a little bit also if you have a very large number of people in your data base

I presently have a little over 64,000 people consequently don't use the FTM version very much

You are all probably right it was just that i used the old version for so long and i have not given it long enough to get to know it properly

The EFC & All In One Tree are different beasts altogether.

The All In One has (had) all individuals linked together such that you could traverse family groups very easily. Each family breaks off the main family line in an ordered fashion.

The EFC concentrates on generations and gives no clue as to the linkage between individuals.

To have to search on the EFC is not as intuitive as a quick scroll on the All In One.

I continue my search for the product that provides an equivalent invaluable utility. Until then my FTM V16 runs in a virtual XP pc.
