How can that be?
My current GEDCOM doesn't have that much personal data at all:

This report displays the individuals several times if they appears in several places in your tree.
For example, if you have two cousins that have wed, theirs commons ancestors will appear in the two branches.
More of that, if you ask for the descendants of any individuals, you will have the complete path repeated on each ancestor.
So be careful with the options you choose.

As a result, a diagram is unnecessarily bloated and also very confusing.
The connections are definitely difficult to see if I interpret your answer correctly.

The result is not confused, because you have always separated lines. (See the picture in the report presentation).
You only see there is connection because you have the same individual several times in the report.

The best way to see connections is the graph display. every individual is represented only one time in this graph.
And you can see all the individuals of your genealogy.
By the way, I have never tried to see the graph with such a huge genealogy.

This is certainly more of a test case and not (or rarely?) For reality!
My current genealogy software (older version 1.xx) creates the diagram within 6 minutes on a weaker computer (laptop) on the display.
This representation is actually very sluggish and some other lists to be displayed (etc.) also work sluggishly.
In the meantime, I am not allowed to select some menu items (too large amount of data? - because they worked before!) Because they no longer work.
A close relative of mine is very interested in family and has already organized several family meetings for individual ancestral lines. Sometimes up to 240 participants came from all over the world!
The longest descendant diagram she had plotted was over 32 meters long! The participants were enthusiastic and asked about the software.
Unfortunately I can NOT recommend it any more!

Sorry to say that Ancestris is not the best software for printing tree.
You have lots several possible combination but we don't have all the possibilities.
What is your software ?

In 2003, after Ray Dee Pollmann (Mormon, Vice President of the Zions Bank) wrote to me from the USA, I installed and tested around 50 genealogy software programs very quickly (I had absolutely no clue about genealogy).
The only software I really liked!) Was Ages! 1.31.
Current version (1.53 = 1.5.3), although I licensed version 2.x and thus financially supported it.
When I read about 'strategic partners' in the pre-announcements for V2.x, I wrote off this software!
Nevertheless: This genealogy software is very underestimated!

The all in one report from Ages! is effectively impressive.

Yes, definitely!
It just lacks the possibility of presetting, not even the number of ancestor generations can be specified!
Unfortunately, this leads to unnecessarily long waiting times when creating this diagram, because only AFTER that I can reduce the number of ancestor generations.
The setting options that Ancestris offers me point in the right direction!
Just as I (consciously!) Misuse data fields for entries, I also misuse this diagram form to graphically represent common relationships (even between several people).
Unfortunately, it requires some preliminary work!

OpenJDK11 (Haiku Port) has been updated to 11.0.9.11-1!
Now Ancestris11 starts under Hauku64Bit with OpenJDK8 and OpenJDK11 without an error message!

I have answered :

The Memory size management is a bug in the last version of Ancestris.
This should be corrected tomorrow.
Meanwhile, just save your memory settings.
When Ancestris relaunch, close it and open again.
The memory size should be taken in account.
This is not related to the Java port.
