Re: Creating books with photos and documents

Hello again, Bill. Here are the exact instructions from 'Help.'

How to print photos on reports
You can print photos on pedigree charts, family group records, ancestry wall charts, books, individual summaries, and scrapbooks.
On the screen for each of these reports is an option to include photos. If you click that option, the Photos button becomes available.
Click the Photos button to specify (in most cases) photo size, placement, and whether space should be reserved for a photo if an individual does not have a default photo.

From the Reports and Charts screen, click Photos.
From the Size box, choose photo height and width to print.
Tip: The program will try to print the photos as close to the height and width as possible. Paper size, orientation, and margins may affect how large the photos can be.
From the Photo Placement box, choose where the photo will print in relation to text and other data. You can choose from Above, Below, Left, Right, or in the Center of the text.
If you want to reserve space for photos that are not currently in the .paf file, click Reserve Space for Missing Photos.

All 400+ photos have been added to individuals in my PAF. I am having no luck in producing any file with photos. I uninstalled and re-installed PAF as you suggested.

Is there an update to the HELP info above ? Where do I find the 'reserve space for photos' button or toggle ?
Thanks so much,
Beck Sams
