Tree Charts overview

With the Tree Chart facility you will be able to produce presentation quality charts.

These charts can be used to help you visualise your research to date, be pinned up at a reunion, shown to family and friends, published in book form or placed on the world wide web.

Tree Charts provides a feature rich environment in which to create your presentation quality charts. We have programmed into Tree Charts professional layouts based on our years of experience. You will now be able to make professional looking charts. We have provided a wonderful range of graphics which you can readily incorporate in your charts. They are not available elsewhere.

To see some beautiful charts see the page Tree Chart Samples.

Available Charts

Choose from thirty six (36) different charts in the Tree Chart facility each with many variations.

Tree Charts have been designed so that it is straight forward to produce a chart and easy to rerun that chart.

The Tree Chart facility has its own History, Preferences, Settings and Help.

The Tree Chart facility ships in English, German and Spanish.

The first time you run Tree Charts you will see a dialog saying that "Upon registration you will be advised on how to obtain the many graphics" and that "Until then there are only a few demonstration graphics available".

How to produce a tree chart

It is simple to produce your first chart. Just click the Process button. A chart will be formed in the centre pane of the window. (The Process button is a button on one of the tool bar at the top of the window. Alternatively click the menu Process then menu item Process.) After processing the chart that entry goes into History.

When ever you want to produce a chart click the Process button.

See the topic 'Tree Charts - panel Basic' for how to get up and running very quickly.

Changes to settings are immediate. There is no need to run through a wizard to produce a chart.

The user interface is made up of thirteen (13) tool panels and menus and tool bars.

Many of the settings can be made through the tool panels. Panels are placed on the left hand and right hand edges of the windows. Panels can be pinned to the window by clicking the pin graphic in the top of the panel. Some panels can be removed from view by clicking the X graphic. These panes (Layers, Library and Help) can be restored by selecting View | Layer Manager, or, View | Library Manager, or View | Help retrospectively. You can pin more than one panel in the window at one time.
