* Both ancestors and descendants are combined in a single report
** On the ancestors side, father and mother are combined in a box
** On the descendants side, spouses are included
* Marriage and divorce information is included
* The names are printed in a bigger font than the dates and places (birth date, death date, etc)
* This report makes better use of the available space for printing ancestors and the whole report is centered on the page, the boxes are also aligned in a more centered than top-aligned way

==FeaturesCallname handling==There are a number of differences to the standard [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_4#Ancestor_Tree|Ancestor Tree]] and [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_4#Descendant_Tree|Descendant Tree]] reports:* Both ancestors and descendants are combined in a single report* The report is colored, with various coloring options* The whole report is centered on the page, the boxes are also aligned in a more centered than top-aligned way* Marriage and divorce information is included* The names are printed in a bigger font than the dates and places (birth date, death date, etc)* This report has an some experimental options to * use the call name instead of the first name, * or to underline the call name (only works with PDF output)* This report has options to print occupation and residence* There are 3 predefined ways of formatting the birth/death/marriage/divorce data: year only, full date, or full date and place* This report makes better use of the available space for printing ancestors* On the ancestors side, father and mother are combined in a box* On the descendants side, spouses are included
== Issues==* help button wrong page* {{bug|7018}} : Family Tree report no longer underlines call name in PDF output* To activate callname handling, you need to apply the patch in {{bug|8003}} uncomment in the <code>FamilyTree.py</code> the line
<code># menu.add_option(category_name, "callname", callname)</code>
===Caveats===* The report uses &lt;u&gt;...&lt;/u&gt; to underline the call name if the call name is a part of the first name. This only works with CairoDoc based output (direct printing, PDF export) and HTML output.
