Saving Report Configuration

I would like to be able to configure a report with the centre person, 
file name etc. and then save the configuration so I can run it later 
without having to configure it again. For example I would like to run 
the web report 'Ancestral Collapsible Tree' for 8 different people with 
different file names, centre person and number of generations without 
having to configure each individually each time. Is this possible? I 
looked at the reports Books but the web reports are not include there. 
Can I edit report_options.xml to achieve this? I have tried but with no 
luck.

Fw: Can I "find and replace"?

Subject: Re: [Gramps-users] Can I "find and replace"?

Hello:

I made a GEDCOM from Gramps and opened it in Wordpad. The I did a straightforward "Find and Replace". The few words that were broken were no problem (ie: "befor e") and that went quickly. However, I couldn't tell the program to "Replace All" in the beginning because there were so very many instances of  "&nbsp;" that the program would freeze. I had to put in some hours winnowing them down before the program could go forward on its own to finish the job. I couldn't find the &nbsp; instances and replace them with nothing, so I replaced them with a space. I finished off by finding instances of two spaces and replaced them with one space. Then I reloaded the GEDCOM back into Gramps.

I DO NOT blame Gramps for these problems. I am happy and content blaming it on Legacy. I'm positive that is the case, perhaps from when I upgraded in the past to a newer version.

I have come to the conclusion, though, that I know far too little about computer programing and codes and even the jargon to use Gramps. Thanks for your suggestions, everybody.

Doug, that works perfectly, thank you. Is there a page or a part of the manual that explains *why* that works? It's not immediately clear to me.

Thanks again
Walter 


Walter, I'm embarassed I can't answer that. When I was first trying out the filter, "mouse-over" the 'Add Rule' panel displayed a message that leaving the field empty returned people with no source.  Now whenever I repeat the actions no such message appears, so it seems to be a fluke that I happened on the information in the first place.

For most filters, a blank field means that you get *all* items for that category, *not* those with no entry in the field. If you want just those entries with an empty field, usually you need to put "^$" (without the quotes) there and enable regular expressions.
In this case "^$" doesn't work and there is no option to enable regular expressions. I suspect when gramps was extended a short while ago to treat citations and sources in a more refined way, the filters for it weren't handled consistently with the other filters; but it needs a developer to comment on that.

Sorry not to offer any enlightenment.

Doug

Where can I find preference or find out version of open Gramps

Hi, being a Gramps newb, I am at a loss to figure out just which version I am
running under Ubuntu 15.04.

Currently I am running both Windows Vista and Ubuntu 15-04 - on different
machines. 
The Windows machine is running Gramps 4.1.3 while on Ubuntu, I can't be sure
:-(
This is because I initially installed whatever version I could find from the
Software Centre.

Later, because I was very curious about the source code etc, I also
installed git and then downloaded and extracted the latest (current -
default?) version from the local git repository and after a bit of
experimenting got it to compile with python 3.

The data on the Ubuntu machine is simple throw-away stuff at present, but I
am still wanting to figure out how to run different versions - in case I
play with the source on my machine & recompile.

Evidently, the recompile replaced the original version of gramps, because
anytime I call it up from the left hand bar, it warns me that it would
upgrade the database, if I proceed, and that it would be impossible to go
back - it encourages me to back up the data before I proceed, but as it is,
I can no longer access the old version of gramps :-(

I have seen various references to GRAMPSHOME, and seen some batch files and
bash scripts, but it is not at all clear to me how to apply this information
to this specific instance.
My exposure to Linux/Solaris was some time ago and was never very thorough,
so I know just enough to be fiddle incessantly with my installation, but do
not yet know or remember enough to get this off the ground.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

PS: the Ubuntu version does not include any menu bar at all - is this to be
expected??

TIA,
Arnold

Source Citation For Places

I understand the practice of not relying on web sites/pages to stay around, and therefor wanting to get the original source as opposed to the one listed on the web page. But, what about getting addresses for places? Say, for example, you wanted to get the address for a hospital. I can get this from the "Contact Us" page of their website. I can also verify this (even get the Long/Lat) in Google Maps. In this case, would you use the web site as the source and the contact us page as the citation? In general, would you as a researcher be satisfied with this citation or would you look for some other kind of document with the hospital's address on it? 

Same process, for me, would be used in regards to things like cemetaries, schools, churches, and other places that may have a web site.

Relationship Calculator in 4.1.3

Hello,

Using version 4.1.3 of Gramps with Python v3.4 and I'm having issues
with the Relationship Calculator.  I can open it and select an
individual to perform the calculation, but the result part of the window
is at about 1 or 2 pixels high, and cannot be expanded as nothing is
'grabable' to perform the necessary operation, so that I can read the
result.

It's been some time since I used the Relationship Calculator, so can't
say whether the problem has existed in previous versions or is related
to recent GTK lib changes.

I'm hoping there's an easy fix.

Gedcom import error

I'm  trying to import a gedcom from RootsMagic 7 into Gramps 4.1.3-1 on

After I close the error message I can see it's imported about 20 
people.  This happens with every gedcom I'm trying to import generated 
by RootsMagic 7.  I didn't have any problems that last time I did this 
back in the winter.
I tried making a gedcom from Family Tree Maker 2012 and it imports fine 
with out this error.

Since my main db is in RM7 I would prefer to do the export from it. Is 
there something I can do to fix this error?

Thanks,
Kim

Creation of filters disabled in 4.1.3

A bug (#8643) introduced during upgrading (?from 3.4 to 4.1 
or later) makes it impossible to create anything but the 
simplest filters, depriving gramps 4.1.3 of one of its most 
powerful tools.
It's been resolved and the solution incorporated in the 
upcoming gramps 4.2, but that leaves 4.1.3 (and earlier 4.1 
versions) users high and dry until 4.2 is released.

Could devs please provide a patch for 4.1.3?

Many thanks,

Doug

So far, I only had the issue with Churches. Several of my documents just
say "Parish Church of XYZ". Also, I normally don't remember the
corresponding saint and just want to find the church of village XYZ. Is
St. Paul or St. Sebastian the church of village XYZ?

Places in 4.2: Hide "Title" everywhere, search for or show hierarchy string

Hi all,

after playing around with the current git version of 4.2, I found two
issues that are connected with the hiding and the not filling of the
title field of a place.

By default, the place title is now generated automatically from the
hierarchy. Consequently, the title field is hidden in the place editor.
However, the title field is still shown or used in the filter of the
places, the place selection dialogue, etc. Thus, I would suggest to hide
the title field and the connected functionality completely in case the
title is auto-generated.

Instead, I would like to have the possibility to search within the
hierarchy. For example, imagine three villages, each with a church
(without a specific name). I would have the following places ("<"
indicates next level in hierarchy):

Church < Village A
Church < Village B
Church < Village C

In this case, only the auto-generated title is unique. Currently, when I
search for Church in the place selection dialogue of an event, I get
three-times "Church" without the means to see which one is which. If I
search for "Village B", I don't have a way to select the corresponding
Church.

What do you think would be a good way to handle this issue? It's
certainly not that urgent.

Thanks a lot for your work!

Sebastian
