May I say that I admire your perseverance. Others would have held up their hands and said "Enough" I'm grateful.
What do I want such a report for? First, and this may be a personal quirk, I prefer viewing such a family tree in a printed form. I find it easier than clicking through a computer screen. Secondly, I have sets of three hole hard back folder, one for each family, and containing all relevant data concerning it - from copy BDM certificates, Census returns, home addresses etc.,
That's just my system, and I find it a very efficient and a quick reference.
The story of the Scotts. I recently discovered that my Macdonald grandfather and his wife Janet Scott were cousins, so I started to trace her line. I successfully attached, via FTM this new branch to Janet Scott's husband, my grandfather Macdonald. I expected to find this new Scott branch in a genealogy Report, but no joy. I was surprised (and still am) to see the recent Scott addition in the Extended Family Chart, a production I don't find easy to read.
Going back to my filing and reference method, a fully comprehensive Report would be ideal, but as we have already been through that, I am resigned to accepting the FTM restrictions - no non-direct branches shown.
I am now about to start work on your recent suggestions, to see if there is a way to achieve my objective.
