Empty Notes

With gramps 4.0.3 (distribution version of ubuntu 14.04) I'm getting empty notes when I go to edit them. This is the error that is being cast on the command line:

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gramps/gui/widgets/undoableentry.py:115: Warning: g_value_get_int: assertion 'G_VALUE_HOLDS_INT (value)' failed
  Gtk.Entry.set_text(self, text)

  Any idea what might be going on? Thanks.

  Cheers,
   Christian

FYI: note that "family.db > family.txt" should be on the same line as db_dump.

Gramps id numbers over 9999

My database has over 10000 individuals.  I notice that when the id exceeded four digits, I can no longer sort individuals by id; both ascending and descending id order fails.  I am using Gramps 3.4.3-1.

Associations are single ended?

I just had cause to create some "Guardian" associations in Gramps.

I went to the children (named in the will) and hooked
them up with the named Guardians via the Associations
tab, using the will as a Citation.

A little later, I was researching the guardians,
and noted that THEIR association tab doesn't show anything.

Surely an association should be double ended?

e.g. a godchild has a godparent, but conversely the godparent has a godchild.

No page numbers in book report

Hello,

in a book report I have inserted a table of content. In the topics of 
the table of contents there are page numbers for each topic. But the 
pages in the report don't contain any page numbers.

It's the same for the alphabetical index: there are references to page 
numbers in the index but no pagenumbers in the report.

Did I miss an option to switch on the pagenumbers? Or is it a bug?

Regards

Rainer

An issue with Notes

Hello All,

I'm using GRAMPS: 4.0.3-1 from the Debian testing repos.

Yesterday, I tried to add an Event Reference Note(1) that Gramps
disallowed, complaining about a lack of data for the note and that I
should either enter data or cancel the note.  Data had been entered.
Checking the Preformatted option allowed the note to be saved, but this
stripped the data leaving the note empty.  I checked text & background
colours for any stupidity on my part, but the data really had been
removed.

The actual error message reads;

                 Cannot save note - Gramps
                     Cannot save note

No data exists for this note. Please enter data or cancel the edit.

			close

Before I file a bug report (I couldn't find one), I thought I'd ask here
for any clues.  My thinking being that it's probably me; otherwise
somebody would have already mentioned it.

(1) Further testing showed that this issue applies to notes of all
types, wherever I try to create it.

Missing feature/bug?

Having just acquired a very helpful  chapter from a book,
I wished to make a citation of it.

Logically enough, I went to the citation view.

I was ... surprised to discover that there is
no way to create a new citation from an existing
source in that view.

When you click the '+' you are offered a dialog
which will create both the source and citation therefrom.

Fast binary backups (was Re: repairing a database)

How much programming would it take to use Python multiprocessing and binary 
formats to quickly dump the contents of tables into arrays which you then 
tar up. Heck, even just lock the tables, flush them and copy the .db files 
into a timestamped subdirectory.

Sure it would be tied to a specific bdb and Gramps versions, but that's far 
secondary to the primary goal of uber-fast backups.

Standard Roles?

I note the built in drop down of Roles has "Executor"
and "Witness", both very applicable to Wills.

Is there any reason "Beneficiary" isn't there?

I know I can (and will) add it myself, I just
wondered why it isn't standard.

repairing a database

I worked in gramps for about 6 hours today. Then  at the end of the day
gramps wouldn't close (after waiting about 5 min) so I forced a termination. 
When I tried to reopen it the db was locked (which was no surprise), but
then I got a message saying the dbase was corrupted.  No problem, I thought,
run the repair.  But the repair button is not available.  When researching
what to do I found the gramps wiki with the title "Recover corrupted family
tree"
https://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Recover_corrupted_family_tree
This site described the exact errors that I'm getting, but the fix seems
outdated.  It says that I should install the "bsddb recovery tools" - but my
database is using v.5 and there is no version 5 recovery tools that I could
find on the internet.  Is there some alternative repair tool that I could
use to try and fix my data?

Importing GED Files

I am currently using Gramps version 3.4.5-1 and need to move two or three separate family trees, all held in
GED files.  How do I do it?  I have read the manual and the Command prompt route is completely “over my head”!

I am running the software on an iMac OSX v10.9.2

David.
