Descendant Text Report
The next best thing to emailing an Indented Descendant Report —Maggie Kitts
At the September meeting we learned that emailing an Indented Descendant Report left much to be desired.
In UFTree, go to File, Print Set Up, Print to File, RTF, External Support tab, Automatically Launch Editor, Other. Enter the path to your Word Processor, OK.
Open the individual record of the person who will be progenitor in this report. Click Report, Descendant Text Report. Select desired Style and Other options. Print. The report opens in your word processor.
Copy the file to the clipboard and also Save the report as an .rtf file.
Go to your email. Paste the text into the body of an email message. Attach the .rtf file to the message. Send the message to yourself. Compare the attachment and the message body. Which do you prefer?
I found that both the message body and the attachment were identical.
There were two changes from the original UFTree Report.
The report title used a smaller font and nothing was bolded.
Please note, This is for the Desendant Text report and most other UFTree reports.
Email and attachments cannot handle the Indented Descendant Report or the Pedigree Report.
The problem with those reports relates to the way email (or opening an attachment in an email window) deals with tabs. The fact is, any tabs used look fine on your screen but disappear at the receiving end.
We also found that an attachment of the Indented Descendant Report shows indent errors after the first page. Later pages accumulate errors.
