Legacy Famikly Tree 7 does permit the user to easily "Tag" "Only Living Individuals (and a separate check box for "AND Dead Tagged Individuals")," "ALL Individuals, Living and Dead," "Only Dead Individuals," "Only Tagged Living Individuals," "All Tagged Individuals, Living and Dead," and "Only Tagged Dead Individuals" in the Calendar Creation screen (click on the > Reports button > Books and Other tab > Calendar Creator tab > Include tab). There is no box to click for "Ancestors of Highlighted Person" or "Descendants of Highlighted Person." Perhaps future versions of Legacy will add these options because they would be useful, I think.
In a comment to my post, Gwynn Socolich (of the GSGenealogy blog, Gwynn is a San Diego area genea-blogger) requested a step-by-step of "how to Tag all of your ancestors in Legacy" so here is the process I used:
1) Starting with myself as the highlighted person in the "Family" view, as shown below:
2) I clicked on the "Help" link in the top menu, and in the Search box put "Tags" and from the list of Help articles I selected "Tagging Records" as shown below:
3) The Help paragraphs for this topic told me two things - that I need to "turn the tagging option on" using the General tab on the Options > Customize menu screen. That was the KEY clue to be able to do the task at hand. The screen is shown below, and the check box to "Enable tagging options" is in the lower left-hand corner:
4) After clicking "Save" in the above screen, I went back to my Family view screen and now Tags 1, 2 and 3 (the default tags) are shown next to highlighted person (me) and his spouse (my wife). Tag Number 2 is in Red in the screen below for some reason (perhaps because I tagged myself earlier?). I right-clicked on Tag #2 and the screen for "Advanced Tagging" appeared. I chose myself as the highlighted person, chose to "Tag" rather than "Untag," typed "Ancestors" into the Tag 2 description, and clicked on the "Ancestors" button on the screen:
5) After clicking on the "Ancestors" button above, another screen appeared and here I could choose how many generations back I desired, could pick "Direct Line Ancestors," "Entire Ancestor Line" (which includes anyone linked in any way to an ancestor) and/or "Include Multiple Parents." This second screen is shown below:
While this seems very complicated when written down in a step-by-step sequence as above, it is really pretty easy to accomplish.
