You can customize various aspects of the layout in PedPro to give your pedigrees an individual style.

The screenshots to the right of this page demonstrate some of these effects such as:

  • Different depth of ancestors - some of these pedigrees have 4 generations, others have 5. The maximum in the program is 6.
  • Some have a logo area (top left corner), others do not.
  • Some of the examples have a watermark image lying behind the pedigree, and when present you can adjust its size and position.
  • You can choose to include a photo of the subject animal if you like. Normally this would be shown in the top right corner.
  • You can have an optional signature area underneath the pedigree. You can change the text in the box.
  • The fields (data) thats included in the pedigree can be customized. E.g. you may choose to include registration numbers, or you might not want to. In other words, just because you may have chosen to store some data (such as the reg. no.) with an animal, this doesnt force you to include it in a printed pedigree. You can control which fields are output, and where.
  • You can change the fonts and the size of the text.
  • You can alter the colors of the grid lines, their thickness and whether to have rounded or square corners.
  • You can set the pedigree to highlight repeat or common ancestors by color coding.
  • You can choose whether or not to include the inbreeding coefficient and, if so, the number of generations of ancestors considered in that calculation.
  • You can resize all the boxes in the pedigree - so you can have a narrow heading or a deep heading, and you can control the width of each ancestor generation.
