Descendants Chart - Project View People Only?

Post by jmb » Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:33 pm

Is there a way to generate a Descendants Chart that displays only the people in an active Project View?

There is not an option to provide this currently. I would forsee two problems:

1. If the view is an Ancestral view, the descendants chart would be quite linear.

2. If the view is not Ancestral, it is not assured that there would be a continuous dynasty through the descendant generations. It may end quite abruptly, or require a kinship setting to bridge the gaps.

It could get quite tricky tweaking the results.

A solution would be to make a copy of your database using Finder, open it in iFamily, then prune the minor dynasties which are not members of the view. Again, it may prove a finicky proposition.
