You can put a checkmark by Print to File, which will cause the Ahnentafel to be printed to a Microsoft RTF file, which will open in your word processor. I suggest that you go to the end of the file, add a page break, and then insert an index.

Because RTF files are interpreted differently by different word processors, I suggest that you save the file in Word's .DOC format.

An even better option if you have a PDF writer is to print the Ahnentafel from your word processor to the PDF writer to get a PDF version, which can be read and printed on any computer regardless what word processor is used. PDF works equally well on a Mac or Linux computer.

(There are various excellent free PDF writers. and CutePDF are two I have used extensively.)
