Could a macOS and a Windows user post a window capture of the Import dialog (drilled down to the Example CSV and back up to the breadcrumb containing “example”) folder in a standard install of Gramps and with the Example folder clicked and the context menu showing?
For Linux (Fedora), the final image (I will add the post-process hightlighting of the breadcrumbs and context menu option) looks like this:
The File Chooser and path to example files (including Example.gramps and its media path) are 2 of the biggest OS fork differences that users need to know about in the wiki. It would good to have dialogs for all three supported OSes on that wiki page.
I do not have access to my Windows box at the moment.
On my Mac, I don’t have a gramps folder underneath usr/share/doc. I’m using the application bundle installed from a dmg file; I did not build from source.
When I open the import dialog, it’s pointing to the “Backup path” that I put in my Preferences (not to the “Family Tree Database path”.) I don’t recall what the original path was before I changed my preferences.
Here are the file locations for the example.gramps file (but please drill down to the example/csv/ folder then navigate via breadcrumbs to the “gramps” directory and show the context menu for the “example” folder) under all 3 OSes:
Follow these steps to bring the external file “example.gramps” into a family tree database:
on Linux, /usr/share/doc/gramps/example/gramps/. If the file is named example.gramps.gz, rename it to example.gramps and gramps will recognize it. You can copy this file to a temporary location or import it directly from this directory.
on MS-Windows v5.1.5 AIO, C:\Program Files\GrampsAIO64-5.1.5\share\doc\gramps\example\gramps (On MS-Windows, ensure you can see hidden files; see User Directory:MS Windows)
on Apple macOS, the example database is located inside the application bundle at /Applications/Gramps.app/Contents/Resources/share/doc/gramps/example/gramps/
It is very close. Could you drill the breadcrumbs down to share/doc/gramps/example/csv/ then click on the share/doc/gramps breadcrumb to pop back up 2 levels? It leaves the deepest path showing in Breadcrumbs. But that MIGHT not be the case in Windows.
Have you added the c:, d:, and GrampsAIO64-5.1.5 bookmarks manually? There aren’t a similar bookmarks in the Linux or macOS.
Which reminds that I don’t know where the GTK File Chooser’s bookmark customizations are stored. Nor how to reset them to defaults. More things to research.
