The short version, is that you are not able to print out the dynamic tree. The tree is not bound to a page, and can be scrolled and moved in any direction, preventing it from being printed to a single page.

Even if you're experienced with genealogy and organize your tree information on a website such as WikiTree or Ancestry.com you might want to print out one of these when you're going to a family reunion, party, or visiting a grandparent. It's a great way to "troll" for new information. It can also be handy for parents and teachers looking for activities for children.

It is a shame that we can't do better.  Do we have anyone in our group who knows enough about computer programming stuff that they could make a format that would enable us to save an already extended Dynamic Tree in some sort of format (a PDF or something) that we could take to a printer's (like Staples, or Office Depot or something) to have them print it out in large, wall-sized form?

It certainly seems like it would be a worthy project to look into.  I am certain that 90% + of the users would find that something they would be interested in using at some point or another!

Your best option for a family tree of more than just a few generations is to download a gedcom, import it into a desk-top genealogy program, and print from there.

Printing a chart, such as a pedigree chart or wall chart, should not be a problem from your program. The narrative, including sources, will go into the notes page for the person it applies to. Narrative reports, if they include notes, will need clean-up to look good.
