===GraphViz Options===
[[Image:Familylines_graphviz.png|thumb]]
This plugin uses [http://www.graphviz.org/ GraphViz]. GraphViz takes the .dot files and creates the final files, such as .gif, .png, .pdf, .ps, etc.
* '''Graph direction''': whether the tree grows from left-to-right, or right-to-left.
* '''Ratio''': GraphViz uses this to determine how to position items. Only trial-and-error will help you determine the best option to use. (When in doubt, '''compress''' tends to work well.)

===People of Interest===

The FamilyLines.py plugin works by starting with a list of "people of interest". This initial list of people is then used to find both ancestors and descendants.
* '''People of interest''': click on "+" and "-" to add/remove people of interest. When in doubt, try adding your grandparents as a starting place.
* '''Follow children to determine family lines''': when selected, this causes FamilyLines.py to follow the children of the people of interest.
* '''Try to remove extra people and families''': when selected, this option causes FamilyLines.py to aggressively attempt to remove extra ancestors and families from the family tree.

===Individuals===

* '''Males''', '''Females''', '''Unknown''': the colour to use for people whose surname doesn't match any of the names on the "Family Colours" tab.
* '''Families''': the colour to use for families (weddings).
* '''Limit the number of parents''': if selected, then the number of ancestors will be limited by the amount shown. This can only be selected if "Follow parents" has also been selected on the "People of Interest" tab.
* '''Limit the number of children''': if selected, then the number of children will be limited by the amount shown. This can only be selected if "Follow children" has also been selected on the "People of Interest" tab.

* '''Include researcher and date''': a label will be placed at the bottom of the graph when this is selected.
* '''Include private records''': people and events marked as private will be included in the graph when this is selected.
