I would like a report showing only the descendants of a chosen individual.
My everything report shows all the descendants of all the earliest ancestors of the chosen individual.
Is it possible to show only the descendants of this individual?

That's sadly funny. 5 years of development, and Behold can't do that.

On the Organize -> Numbering page, in the "Order Individuals / Within Families" drop down box, I can add an option that says "Only Descendants". This shouldn't be too difficult to implement, since that is the same as "Up to Ancestors" but stopping at the selected family instead of continuing up all their ancestors.

Thanks for pointing that out. I'll try to get it in before the next release.

I've now added the ability to show just Descendants of the selected families into version 0.99.18 of Behold. There is a "D" button on the toolbar to quickly select this option.
