What software is best?
« on: Wednesday 28 January 09 10:15 GMT (UK) »
I've been using Generations v.8 for years and am quite happy with it, except that it's not very user friendly for printing out large size family tree charts to a big printer.  I'm thinking of changing to something else, but don't know which to choose.

Can anyone offer any advice please on which software is user-friendly and can easily generate charts to print from our 6 foot printer?

Various posts about software have been pulled together above by Berlin Bob however Legacy 7 now comes with Charting software as a separate program which may do what u want.

Try http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,158637.0.html from Berlin Bob's library. 

I use Family Historian 3, an upgrade 4 is being next month which sounds quite good and I like it.
