The pedigree layout may be customized in many ways. You can:
The way to go about changing many of these layout properties is fairly obvious, and you may well find that you do not need to refer to this guide in order to make those changes. However, reading the information given here will give you a better understanding of how a pedigree is structured, and this will help you customize the appearance more effectively.
TIP: Be sure to click the Design Mode option (in the right side panel - if you can't see the side panel then click the Show Side Panel button which can be found in the upper right corner of the PedPal window). This gives access to more options and causes 'resize bars' to appear which can be moved to resize pedigree elements.
TIP 2: Many layout settings can be accessed through popup menus. Just point at whatever you want to change, then right-click (Mac: use Control + Click) to see the menu.
