Re: how to print a large tree #general

Printing a large tree. If you want to print on a number of pages
there are many ways to do so, but to print on one large page, you
will need to use a plotter. *

I produce a tree in jpg format from "Agelong Tree".
I load Agelong from a GED file I produce from the software
I use, but does not have a way to produce a
"nice" (subjective) tree.

I take the JPG file on a flash drive to a print service
I find near most city halls where people
copy, or print,  blue prints. Be sure they print
the file at 100% and not as some programs save the
file. I have used only 2 locations, one required
TIF format and the other PDF. Each was able
to convert my JPG to their formats.

I have 1600, 1300 are linked and I get a tree of 40cm by
18 meters. 

Additional question: The largest home format printers I find
are A3, does anyone know of a home printer that will
take continuous paper?

* In the olden days, before 2005 or so, there were dot matrix printers
and software to print sideways on continuous paper.

I would like to print my tree that has approximately 500 names. I cannot do it with the program I use (Family Tree Maker 2019). Is there another program or way to print it?

Thank you for your help
