Michael, One particular book-in-progress is 350 pages, about half the pages have high quality pictures. Genealogy charts have colored boxes & small pictures of each person.
Text was started several versions of word processor back, not in a genealogy program at all. Imagine how many pages have to be changed because the selected year of birth for the starting ancestor has been changed due to conflicting sources.
Suppose a UFT 3 customer was planning a new book project with 200 or more image files, maps, source documents and charts. Descendants of three groups of ancestors from Britain, children are the 6th generation in North America in the main surname line. Cited sources and footnotes are not as important as the family notes and comments about historical events. Adding pictures to the draft copy changed the whole focus of the book. Conflicting data came from another researcher and much of the text had to be revised.
Customers in mailing lists often concentrate on data entry or technical issues without considering how well their favorite program can be used by potential customers with a variety of family projects.
Does UFT allow descendants of several ancestor branches to be combined in one report? Can full page source documents be printed from within the program? I'm considering different methods that might be suitable for the other side of the same family. Even if a word processor is used for final editing, it would be better to print draft copies of the notes directly from a genealogy program's updated database.
