Set this option to make imported text wrap lines which are too long.
Wrapped text width
The maximum width of imported text elements will start off at the value you enter here when the above Word wrap option is turned on. The unit of measure is screen pixels at 100% zoom. You can still resize the text element after it has been imported.
This is a multiplier for the length of the lines linked to text. Increase the value to increase the length of the lines. Link lines are
the ones shown in red below:
Text to include in statistics box
When importing a tree you have the option of adding a statistics box indicating number of people, etc. This box will also include any text that you enter here.
Normal line style
The line style used for linking parents to children. You can change the style and colour of the line using the Change button.
Marriage line style
People with multiple marriages in an imported tree can have their marriages linked by a dashed line. You can change the style and colour of the line using the Change button.
TreeDraw uses these settings for boxes drawn around text in descendant and ancestral trees and for the circles in wheel charts when the "Boxed" option is used. Use the Outline button to change the line style and colour for the box, the Fill colour button for the colour of the inside of the box and the Pattern list to choose the pattern for the inside of the box.
Click on the Get styles button to automatically set up the visual styles based on the currently selected chart elements.
