I read and printed the FTM Help hint that you recommended.It seems more attuned to printing than exporting an image.And I could always export to a PDF.
Taking your advice, I rebooted my computer this morning (I leave it on, it's been like 8 days since I rebooted) and then opened FTM 2009.
Using your blog post as an example, I created a Bow-Tie chart for my father, added a background, and the exported it first to a PDF (not wanting to have wasted my time).Then - the big test - will it export to an image?
YES!I saved it as a JPG (over 2 mb for a 22 x 14 chart) and printed it out.I will post it on my blog with a hearty recommendation for the FTM Help hints and this message board.
Rebooting the computer works!You might want to ffer it as a hint on the FTM Help list, if it isn't there already.
