After updating Gramps 5.1.2 to 5.1.3 my database is locked. ,I don’t now how to unlock it because if I close the dialogue where it says that the databse is locked, whole Gramps is blocked (everything light grey) nothing reacts with clicking on. I have to close it with the taskmanager.
Do you have any idea how to unlock my database?
Welcome to the Discourse forum!
There’s a good thread discussing locked Trees & exiting cleanly.
The following quoted paragraph takes you directly to the specific section … but it is worth reading the whole thread.
Thanks for your welcome and very fast answer!
I read the whole thread but it didn’t help.
With Alt-F4 I’m able to “unlock” Gramps itself and I can than close it normaly but I don’t have access to my database. If I try to manage Family Trees to unlock the databse, Gramps itself locks.
Don’t close the dialogue. Select the locked database and try to open it.
You’ll get the following:
select “break lock”
that helped! With the dialogue open which says that the database is locked I pressed Alt+F4. Than the window “Manage Family Tree” opened und with double click on my Tree there was another dialogue where I could choose to unlock it.
Thanks a lott to both of you for your help.
Thanks for the feedback. The other thread has been amended to quote @SNoiraud about not close the dialog.
