Quilt Chart is an interactive Charts Charts category view addon that presents your family tree in the form of a grid.

From the Charts Charts category view select the Quilt Chart icon or select View > Quilt Chart from the menu.

General options tab:

  • Center the selected person. The new position will be near the top left corner (checkbox selected by default). If this option is selected, you don't see the paths and you have no tooltips when hover families.
  • The path color: Red(default)
  • The selected person color: Blue(default)
  • The path transparency: slider that defaults to 6 out (1 to 9).
