How to print out a tree that includes all siblings.

Sorry if this question has already been asked - I have looked, but couldn't see anything.
Here's my query; I'm trying to print out my Grandpa's family tree for him but I can't find a way of doing it that shows everyone that I want it to.
I pretty much want everyone on his tree - his siblings, his parents, their siblings, their parents, their siblings etc. The only trees I seem to get either have just his direct line on, or else have everyone on - for example, it has his daughter, my mother, marrying my Dad, which is fair enough, but it then goes back and includes my Dad's entire family tree on it. Which I don't want.
I just want my grandpa's family tree, with everyone I have found so far on it. Surely this isn't such an unusual request?
I've tried doing a decendant chart instead, and this gives me some of what I want. Only it obviously misses out people. EG. John's decendant chart; john married sarah and had clare, clare married geoff and had simon - it doesn't include geoff's parents. Do you understand what I mean?? I hope so!
I'm using Family Tree making 2012. Perhaps I'm just being idiotic! But any help would be much appreciated!
Thank you in advance.
