My Descendants chart was only 3 generations because that is all I wanted to fit on one page.Several times when it crashed there was no color or background picture - so the size would have been fairly small (I don't know - I was never able to save one to my hard drive and see how big it was).
When I tried the Vertical Pedigree chart it was five generations and in black and white with no background.Therefore, it would likely have been a relatively small file.Again, I never got to make the choice of file type before the crash.
I was going to compact my file and try again.I did that (it only took out 0.31% out of 48 mb).When I tried to Export ato Image FTM 2009 crashed again.
I guess I'll have to wait for the patch that deals with crashes!No real problem - I just won't make charts and save them as images until the patch works.
Would uninstalling and then re-installing FTM 2009 be the next best step?
