Python quit unexpectedly on startup Mac

Hi all,

I'm trying to start gramps for the second time after trying it out a little yesterday when the error
occurred. Now it doesn't want to start at al! Tried deleting and reinstalling it. I'm on latest Mac OS and
gramps. 

Is this the right place for this question? Am I making a rookie mistake? Can anybody help?

Cheers, 

David

Event_Types_Management

Hello,

I am trying to clean up my database and more particularly the events.
This raises two questions:
1) How to manage the hierarchical view in the Event Editor? I.e. I want 
to create a type of Event as "Military", and a sub-types ("Battle", 
"Prisoner"). When I create a new event, it is automatically placed under 
"Personalised".
(I know that the wiki does not recommend to create to many type of events)

2) Trying to look for some events types, I used the filter gramplet. 
Nevertheless, in the filter drop list, not all events types are 
available (i.e. "Personalised" are not available). So, I need to create 
a customized filter, to look for event type, and there, all events types 
are available. Is it a bug?

Using Gramps GrampsAIO32-4.1.3-1 on Windows Vista.
Thanks in advance for your answers.

Chris.

Census Gramplet Data Entry Challenges

I am having trouble entering data using the Census Gramplet.

I am trying to add data from a 1940 US census record. Because the 1940 census has many columns, the gramplet’s data entry table is much wider than my window, so I have to scroll to edit most of the cells.

When I scroll to a column of interest and click a cell to select it, the table view repositions to the first column. To open the cell for editing, I have to scroll back to it. Then when I click the cell again to open it for editing, the table view repositions to the first column. To see what I’m typing into the cell, I have to scroll back to it.

This means that for every cell that’s off to the right, I have to scroll to it three times. Once to select it, once to open it for editing, and once to see what I’m typing. And I am unable to double-click on the cell to select it and open it in one gesture, because the table moves between the first and second clicks.

I have tried tabbing to a cell and pressing my enter key to open it for editing, but that poses a similar challenge: The table view does not move to display the selected cell. So again, I have to scroll to it to see what I am typing.

Am I missing something? Is there some way to enter census data that does not involve scrolling three times to edit a single cell?

My setup: Mac OS X Yosemite. Problems occur on two different MacBooks. Gramps 4.1.2-1 on one computer, 4.1.3 on the other. Census gramplet installed today. Census gramplet version 1.0.28.

Cheers,
Dale

Place changes (latest video)

I set the date preferences, and it solved all of the problem I had
previously. Thank you so much.

However, I notice that in cases where I have an event place with no
date, it does not provide for a default.

For instance, if the province of Napoli was in...

Kingdom of Naples before 1816
Kingdom of the Two Sicilies from 1816 to 1861
Kingdom of Italy from 1861 to 1946
Italian Republic after 1946

That covers all of history. But no country appears in cases where a
person had an event in a municipality of Napoli with no date. It will
only name the municipality and province without the country (e.g.
"Bouonopane, Napoli") I would prefer it to just default to "Italy."

The other alternative is to enter approximate dates, which involves
presumption and guesswork. Any advice?

Crash when trying to produce Statistic report

Enno,

Sorry, I misread your post, so missed some answers you requested.

I did run Gramps in console mode as requested, but I didn't see any error messages, but whether any were added
to the report I do not know. I admit I do not know the purpose of console mode, so I was just following instructions.

I have not done a database check yet, as apart from importing a GEDCOM file, I have added nothing, so data
should be as clean as the import routine made it. If there is any error, then the import routine needs
looking at too.

I am unable to submit a bug report, as the system says I have wrong password, and despite asking for it to be
reset, I am still waiting!

Crash when trying to produce statistics report.

Enno,

I understand what you are saying, but faulty data should not cause program to crash ever! 

The only data in my tree was put there by the GEDCOM import routine, which did not report any problems other
than some 6 people had wrong sex applied, hardly problematical.

It seems to me that the data extraction part of this report is not robust enough and is not doing enough checks
on the data as it is being extracted. Any errors that exist should be caught and reported as an error, with a
recommendation if necessary for the user to do a database consistency check.

I repeat, the program should not crash without warning.

Any hint or code snippet how to do this?

Many thanks!

Fan Charts Production Problem - re-submission

My previous post on this subject included an attachment that was too 
large. I have amended it to a low quality Jpeg, which still illustrates 
the problem.
Original post read:

Following my failure to print a fan chart direct from Gramps (see 
previous post), I discovered the way to produce a PDF of the required 
chart, which I COULD print to my satisfaction.

However, there seems to be a problem when determining the Font size to 
use for generations 2 to 4. Whilst the later generations have an 
appropriate font size, the offending generations have fonts that are too 
large to fit, so overlap each other. (See Attached JPG)

Place changes (latest video)

I watched the latest video which explained how places in Gramps can
reflect the boundary/administrative changes for a place over time. It
is really an excellent idea.

I did go through and make the changes to my places list. However, I
discovered that the "before" and "after" method does not work as it
did in the video. Rather, it only works for "from x to y." This means
that I will have to go through and for every locality change it to
contain a place holder date (e.g. "from 1 to 4 March 1790" or "from
1790 to 2100") just to make it work. That will be quite a bit of extra
work.

Also, it does not seem to easily account for a place which has merely
changed names. Perhaps they should have found a way to attach the date
to the supra-jurisdiction, rather than its members.

The places don't seem to show up in the hierarchy in both places
either. For instance "Quebec" doesn't appear under the drop down for
Canada, but it does for New France. This part hasn't been an issue for
printed reports. In those the names show up just fine at the right
times.

Problem producing statistics report

Jerome,

I did that, and I see a report_options.XML files has been produced. I 
have attached it, under the assumption this is what you wanted. If it 
isn't, let me know.

Problem producing Statistics Report

Everytime I try to produce a Graphical Statistics Report 
(Report/Graphical Reports/statistics), using the default settings, a 
'Gathering Statics' dialog box opens and program immediately crashes.

My database is quite large, consisting of 13179 people, but don't know 
if this is cause.
