I believe the practical answer is NO.

I know there are various chart and options to include more people, But when you say EVERY body, that causes problems and becomes practically impossible, unless you have a very small number of people in your database.

The problem is that the more people you print in a chart the more space the chart takes, yes some printers shrink it down but then the more you shrink the chart the less readable it becomes.

If you are using a standard paper printer, you are limited to about 8.5 X 14 page size. To print a very large number of people you are looking at several dozen pages that would in someway have to be assembled to see the total tree. If you have access to one of the large printers like used in a professional printing operation (not Office Max type stores) you may get something that is usable.

If on the other hand you are talking about printing to a PDF, you can find some printers that print fairly large pages. CutePDF can print to a page size of 36' X 96'. While you may be able to get your chart in to that area, but when zoomed out to see the chart, the printing become too small to be readable, When zoomed in to so you can see the printing, you can only see a small part of the chart.

I hope that explains my NO.
