Step 5.

Now simply add your family’s names by typing each into the text box. You will find lots of options here, but I nomally just use the font and size options. Once you have written a name, you will see it appear on the family tree. Now you can change the font and size to suit your needs. And once you are happy with the font and size, you can move the name by holding the left mouse button over it and drag it to the position you would like it to go.
