First of all, thank you very much for all your answers!
Second, sorry for not answering earlier, I'm swamped at the moment (work + planning the wedding, it's in 3
weeks!!) and only got to trying your suggestions this morning.
I hope you won't mind trying to answer all of your suggestions at once for the sake of mailing-list sanity :)
So, to recap :
- I tried downloading/installing/running Family Tree, it looked promising, BUT: I have a Mac so tried it in
my Parallels VM but it tries to create a directory in a folder where it apparently doesn't have the rights to
and just shuts down with an error msg... It's been too long since I actually used a Windows to try and debug
that, so I tried online, but I haven't found how to change the online version's appearance to have a tree
centered on us AND where both branches are unfolded? (might try again tomorrow)
- I tried installing the "Family Tree" add-on for Gramps, as it looked like exactly what I need but alas it
fails with my version (4.1.0-1), something about "Style Object" not being iterable (SVG export, PDF msg
is different but still about "Style")? Should I copy the full error msg?
- I've just finished installing VizGraph but I don't see any new diagrams options?
- I haven't tried any of the "filter this or that" options because I've pretty much no idea what you're
talking about and virtually no time to read through the whole doc about filters. I'm already late for work
as it is with spending 2hrs trying the above different options this morning, no breakfast, and I'm afraid
I'm getting grumpy/frustrated :(
I clearly am lost, I don't get many of the concepts that you guys are referring to, and I'm rather surprised at
how complicated all this is "just to print a tree"... :/
I'm sorry if I sound ungrateful, 'cause I'm really not, but I'm at my wits' end (yes, they're short at the moment).
I was wondering, if any of you have a working "Family Tree" add-on for gramps, would you be willing to receive
my file and try exporting it, at least to make sure it doesn't come from my file?
Or to actually just export the whole thing in SVG with a few criterias that I'd provide (believe me, there're
not that many)? I'm ready to spring for a few beers on paypal is how lost and frustrated and
