Hi - I have repeatedly tried to print - page at a time - from my tree and all I get the is the message that the file is too big for my printer to process Happy to print as a series of screen dumps and then paste - but I cannot do this. How do I print the current screen as I can in all other programs I use - or are we awaiting a sooper dooper addition somewhere to enable this to happen within the Genes programme?

Hello and a Very Merry Christmas. I use a free utility which allows me to print the screen in Portrait or Landscape. Have a look at www.printdesktop.com

As before - all the best to you and yours for what is left of the festive season

More importantly - as in my reply to Keith - I use Linux rather than Windows and this somewhat limits the proggies that are out there for me to be able to use - I will, however give this one a try - and thank you for your reply to my crie-de-coeur

Sorry to be unable to help in the matter of the family names you detail - I have lead a very sheltered life for the last 70 odd years and ... the areas you refer to are, to the best of my knowledge and recollection unknown to me or miy family - heathen lands beyond our pale!!

Kindest regards

John
