I wanted to add a pedigree chart (from PAF) to a book about my wife's grandparents and their descendants. Creating the pedigree chart using print-to-file took only seconds. The dilemma was how to include it in the Word file that was the book.

My first try was to copy and paste. This put the lines on one page (over-laying the table of contents) and the text of the chart on the next page. Useless!

I put a page break before it, and it didn't help.

I next tried Insert > File, and it was just like pasting.

Finally, I tried putting a section break before and after and pasting in the chart. Perfect!


I wrote a book about 2 years ago and included lots of family group records from PAF, but I had forgotten how to do it. I hope this information may be useful to someone.
