Copy/paste or CSV export children data

Recently, I had found myself wanting to copy/paste or export to text or CSV file the children from a given set of parents.

For example


(I hope I’ve copy/pasted the screenshots in to the body of this message, in the above space! but then it said “Sorry, new users can only put one embedded media item in a post.”)

I’ve tried any which way I could think of, but I’m either missing something or being a bit thick. I can’t seem to select the data and copy/paste, or find a way to export it to any sort of file, or even print. Am I missing something? I can (and am at the moment) doing a Windows Prt Scr screen dump, then cropping the image to size, but that graphics has a higher payload than text, and the text in teh screen dump image can’t easily be manipulated like text.

Is there a way to export the 4 columns of data either by exporting to a file, or by copy/paste.

GRAMPS: GrampsAIO64-5.1.2-1
Python: 3.6.4 (default, Jan 23 2018, 13:17:37) …
BSDDB: 6.1.0 (6, 0, 30)
sqlite: 3.21.0 (2.6.0)
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Thanks for any suggestions

The “numbers of images per posting” limit is there because of bot spammers. It will ease up for you shortly.

I don’t think a copy&paste works for this children gramplet.

One solution:

  1. Create a custom filter children of <person>
  2. Select the custom filter in the sidebar and filter the view
  3. Family Trees > Export View (save it as CSV)

Alternately, it you just want to provide this family info to someone in a compact, low bandwidth form…
You could generate a Reports => Text Reports => Descendant Report…

Copy&Paste works from the various Report outputs.

The following was a 2 generation (self & children generations; includes spouses), de Villiers numbered descendant report in RTF format (plain text mangles the Unicode glyphs like ń) using the example.gramps tree.
