The table layout dialog

Video: Table Layout

This video teaches you all about table layouts. Table layouts diplay the entire content of your family tree in a grid format and can be useful for sorting data, finding information, compiling statistics, navigating in your family tree, and finding errors and replacing them.

The various features of the table layout can help you save time and energy, as all the information is located in one place and any column of the table can be sorted for easy navigating. You can also copy the information of the table layouts into spreadsheets for sharing with others.

Splitting a family tree

Video: Splitting a family tree into sub-trees

This video shows you how to split a large family tree to free up some space on your pedigree layout without losing the parent-child hierarchy. With only two mouse clicks, you can move an entire branch to another tree (GenoMap).

GenoPro takes care of the rest, by creating the necessary hyperlinks to connect the trees.  The benefits of supporting multiple sub trees cannot be understated, as it is the cornerstone of scaling large family trees containing tens of thousands of individuals.  Without the ability to split a large tree into smaller sub-trees, it becomes very difficult to organize information or to create layouts suitable for printing.
