I'm trying to add a partner to someone in my tree, but the box is cut off at the bottom, so I cannot save the addition. I know I have to click on something to alter my screen, but can't remember what.

Think you can use "View" and "Zoom" to reduce the display. I use Firefox as a browser when i'm working on the tree, then all the graphics work correctly and it's also faster.

Thanks Malcolm. I also use Firefox, so don't know why that happens, but I clicked on Full Screen and it did the trick.
