Not really, kj. You can share (export) as a PDF or RTF or you can print.

I print to a virtual printer, which creates a PNG. I then drop the PNGs into my word document.

That's yet another reason why I prefer to work in Word, because of the flexibility. I don't like the limitations imposed by the Publish>Books option in FTM.

I'm not creating 1000 page books of descendant reports. My audience would fall asleep far too quickly. I'm creating 30 to 60 page family histories, illustrated with photos, newspaper clippings, etc. I use primarily relationship charts, with an occasional family group sheet, to help the recipient see how s/he is connected to the main characters.
