I am making a book that includes a number of fairly complexfamily genealogies, to be used by regular people not familiar with GenoPro. (See example below.) 

I have received the comment that on some, it's hard tofigure which offspring are descended from which spouse, etc. Is there, 1) a wayto use color or something to clarify this? or 2) something I can tell thatclarifies how to interpret the chart in that regard?

You can use combinations of colour and size for individuals, family lines and child/parent lines. See the Properties > Display menu for each item, or use the toolbars.

On GenoPro I would space the families out but a book needs the compact version you show. Could possibly be made a bit more obvious but it would probably need more pages, which can also be difficult to follow.
I have used colours as you suggest. Choose a parent and change the gender background to a distinctive colour.
For the child open the display tab and change quadrants of the gender background; I set top left for father's colour and top right for mother
