I keep using this forum for stupid questions, not sure it the correct place, but then i am not sure of too much ref GR. Okay here goes. I added my name to the family tree section, and the added my spouse and my kids, and my mother and father. Moving on i added my grandfather and mother, and i now know my maternal great grandparents. My paternal history is not proving so easy to follow, thats another matter though.
I can't seem to find a way to display the entire chart i have created, to show both my ancestors as i currently know them, and my descendants. Anyone point me in the correct direction please?
Thanks in advance
David :-(

I don't use it much David so I may be misunderstanding you but this is the menu above the tree, clicking on 'Full' brings up my whole tree.

I just tried clicking on 'full' too and it worked for me.

Yes David clicking on full brings up all your tree, you can then use the up/down arrows (bottom left) to navigate.

Please don't worry about asking questions, this tree has only been with us a month or so and we are all slowly getting adjusted to it. :-)

try this ~

On top of your screen, to the right of the URL space, you should see a symbol that looks like a piece of paper torn in half; that's the "compatability" ~ not sure which way it works ON/OFF you should see more than just yourself. I'm always fiddling with the thing!

This new tree/system is driving me nuts.
