Charting Companion is a program that adds attractive printed charts to Legacy Family Tree, Ancestral Quest, Personal Ancestral File, and Family Tree Maker. Now Progeny Genealogy has added a new version for Family Tree Maker. Indeed, many Family Tree Maker users who recently upgraded have been dismayed to find that Family Tree Maker 2008 does not contain all the charting capabilities of the earlier versions. Charting Companion 2.0 for Family Tree Maker should solve many of those problems.
The new Charting Companion 2.0 for Family Tree Maker continues to work with older versions of Family Tree Maker as well as the 2008 version. It is also compatible with Windows XP, 2000, and Vista.
Charting Companion 2.0 for Family Tree Maker allows you to view, print, or electronically publish your charts and reports (including photos) and email them to family and friends. You can even create large wall charts by tiling many pages together or by printing to a plotter.
Charting Companion 2.0 for Family Tree Maker directly reads Family Tree Maker; there is no need for a lossy GEDCOM conversion. You simply load Charting Companion and tell it to load your Family Tree Maker family file. You then choose your subject, select your chart, and print.
