 Hi Barry, 

Thanks for answering ;) 

So the svg is here https://www.dropbox.com/s/ggok7wijxk8hoat/ana-UPGMA.svg 
I can also provide the originel shp (the one coresponding to the blue stuff) 

It seems that Darcy is a dead-end software… French research… No global view… Public funding and no control… Very sad cus it could have been great, and I was about to add in my package a export function to it… anyway… 

Thanks a lot
