Hourglass Graph's Max Ancestor Generations

[Gramps v5.1.6 - Win10]

The “Max Ancestor Generations” for Hourglass Graph seems to be limited to a maximum of 15.

Is it possible to increase it to 20 (and beyond)>


You will need to hack the code gramps\plugins\graph\gvhourglass.py

Change lines 372 and 377 and changing the 15 to your new value.

Thank you, that works great!

Another question on the Hourglass Graph – I noticed that the partner/spouse of the “Center Person” is not included in the graphs. Is this by design or did I miss some report option setting that would enable such inclusion?

If you notice, the spouses are not included in the descendant lines. They are in-laws. And the chart are the ancestors/descendants of the center person. The spouse would have a different chart. Definitely in the ancestor lines but possibly in the descendant lines as well.

A Family chart/report would include more family information.
