Can EasyGenie forms use cursive fonts?

Can EasyGenie forms use cursive fonts?

This question popped up after we posted some samples of EasyGenie charts made with professional calligraphy. While the default text entry font for our fillable is Helvetica 10 or 12 point text, which is easier to read, we understand that our customers may want more aesthetically pleasing options.  Regrettably, the software to design fillable PDFs doesn't support user font choices. An additional issue that arises is whether other fonts can be displayed and printed from customer's Windows PC or Mac without requiring additional downloads.  Further, because cursive letters tend to be wider, this means a choice between smaller fonts that may be hard...

Before we show the review below, there's a backstory to the Genealogy Kids Kit that's worth sharing.  Many family historians, myself included, were bitten by the genealogy bug as children. It often starts with simple questions. Why do we have this last name? Where was grandma born? Why do we celebrate certain events? Why do we eat special foods in our family?

10-generation UNFOLDED genealogy pedigree charts available now!

Ten-generation UNFOLDED pedigree charts are now available! The 10-generation pedigree charts are the biggest EasyGenie genealogy charts we sell, not only in terms of the number of generations covered (10 generations/1,024 numbered spaces), but also the sheer size of the paper - each sheet is nearly 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall!  It's worth noting that our ten-generation pedigree charts have a unique feature you won't find anywhere else: cells for up to 16 children of the primary couple. The unfolded charts are great special projects such as framed genealogy charts, wall posters, or gifts for family members and close...
