I tried using ps2pdf, but that gave a very, very unexpected result. The
ancestor chart was suddenly using greek characters (or something that
looked like it), besides the chart was clipped, and was obviously not
A0, even if I could choose that paper size.
As I said, I understand that it is a Gnome bug that you can't make
larger pdf's than A0 (or Letter), but should I file a bugreport at their
bugzilla about it?
And when talking about bugs... The ancestor chart pdf-report is now
capable of creating files with the norwegian characters =E6=F8=E5. But th=
chart is not, for some reason.
Except for me being unable to create A0 pdf's, the Gnome-print plugin
works very good :) I do have one idea for a new feature, but I'm not
sure you like it. Now one can scale charts to fit on one page. This is a
very good feature, which Don actually made to satisfy me :) Problem is,
that I can write a 10 generation chart to a A4 page, and it will be way
to small to read. But if I select to not scale it, it actually becomes
100 pages, which is way to much. I would guess that 5-10 pages would
have been enough to be able to read it. What I would love is an option
to select how many pages it should fit on, not just one. Is this just
Thanks for your always prompt response, and kind help, and sorry for
