I have managed to create one it’s not exactly how I wanted it to be but it will do

I have TICA active registered Bengals, unlike with Dogs where you have the Kennel Club that has a data base that you can trace back pedigrees and buy 5 generation certificates (although if you don’t want to pay you can access the information and create your own) with Cats there are various bodies operating pedigree schemes, TICA is the largest and most popular, they are based in America and I have an account and have to print out the documents from my account, they don’t produce generational certificates and breeders like myself have to create their own, it’s certainly not forgery! all my cats have a unique TICA number and we have purchased the best blood lines and spent a considerable amount of money in the process

That annoyed me that it should have been simpler than it was and even now it’s done done exactly how I wanted, I have made the table and filled it in but it’s to large and can’t find how I can resize it, when I print it, it prints without the lines around boxes

You may find the outlines aren't printing becuase they're only visible as an aid to you knowing they're there in the first place. Try adding some line weight to them (the setting may be referred to as a stroke depending on which software you're using).

Richard I legit feel terrible for giving you gooseberry fool now, I've been thinking about this all morning while out walking the dog :fp:

I'd be happy to help you make a nice looking certificate using my DESIN SKILLZ in exchange for a small donation to my 3 peaks thing (who knows, you may already be one of the mysterious anonymous benefactors) as it's for animals and seems appropriate.

I can make a basic table based thing like you're describing with a pdf as the final output. This would have editable fields in all the places you'd need to put in details, so you could retype as and when you need to.

Sound good?

Don’t trust him. He’ll sneak in a subtle watermark that only appears once printed, saying “this certificate is a sham”.

The morally righteous proles will never understand the justification for a bit of new money white collar fraud; just let your simple minds rest. This is perfectly fine as long as your don't get caught and the only way that would happen was if you were to post about your crimes and ask for help in committing them in an open and public forum. We all know no upper middles would ever be so stupid.

Seems legit, don't be too hard on richard, he is incredibly polite given how much grilling he gets.

Hope your venture is successful Richard. I wish I had room for extra cats (or even one).

You don't get pedigree certificates for giant day geckos, of which I've bred about 15. They either have deformities and eventually die or they are fine and sit around for another 10 years.

I hadn't known that you actually own geckos, Gecko! :o .

I have had my eponymous pets since 2013, but I had leopard geckos when I was a teenager.

I sold most of them or they didn't live very long, some got ill, some just dropped dead for no reason. I have two left (including the mother who is all wrinkly and one daughter), unfortunately one developed gout and tumour which I tried to remove but she didn't make it. Lizards don't tend well to home surgery.

He's the Nigella of the forum. He plays on his Richardness and everyone else plays along. I hope no one is being serious when they give him stick because he has proven more than a few times he's a good guy. Like when he sent that Zelda guide to someone for a reasonable price and didn't take the piss.

Getting gooseberry fool for being rich is just part of the package of being rich. I do also wonder if he changed his name to Richard to really try and rub it in people's faces.
