It’s easy in the graphview view to see where are the dead end lines
here is an example:
The layout of the provided example there is not familiar to me, and for the differentiation it uses colour, which I would prefer to avoid. In any case, as I heavily rely on Charts > Pedigree, I would find useful some indication of “No child” in Charts > Pedigree, presumably based on some event type or tag I would have to add.
If already available please point me to where I can learn how to use it, if not already available will consideration be given to such a feature?
Options might include thickening the outline on the ‘outside’ border for a “No child” individual, or changing the “+” for death in those cases to say " ¤", or appending " ¤" to the display for date of death, or adding say “No child” under the “*” and “+” symbols.
Thanks emyoulation. (I’m afraid I have so far found Discourse highly counterintuitive and difficult to use.) I’ll visit SourceForge and “View entire thread”.
I see a “Number of Marriages” attribute is standard (ie not Custom) but don’t see “Number of children” (yet), though I could presumably set up a “Number of children” attribute and have that as the trigger. However, there is still the main issue, I think, of how GRAMPS would ‘sense’ that that attribute is 0 and accordingly affect the Pedigree view screen?
(Separately, if GRAMPS did respond to a custom attribute for this, would there not be a risk of it failing if the custom attribute was named “#Children” or “Numero de Niñas/Niños” etc?)
I’ve now read the relevant archive (special thanks for your second link, or I might never have found the right place). Interesting. I already often add a dummy child, of Given name “sine prole”, where age and marital status might lead to expectation of a child, but am not keen on adding even more dummy children and then marking the lot as Private so they don’t appear in Text reports. And in Pedigree view it could still mean scrolling sideways for these dummies to become visible.
There is no Help button on the main screen (there is, now, an FAQ option, but that is not the same as documentation)
“New” at the top of the screen is used in different senses (both for “recent” and “Start your post”). Having read some posts (in particular ‘New’ ones, I had no idea that “+ New Topic” ( no tooltip) was a button to be pressed to start a thread. - And if already happening to be in a thread even “+New Topic” is not visible.
“Help” in the Discourse burger menu is for GRAMPS .
I think my post ended up with a suitable tag (ie “Help”) but (a) I don’t recall adding it, (b) don’t recall being asked for a tag and (c) don’t yet know how to add one
The tooltips on the layout guide were slow to pop up and when I gave more time I happened to choose one (extreme right) that seems to have no tooltip anyway.
To quote I selected some text , clicked on where I saw “Quote” and C&P’d - but no formatting has been added to distinguish the quote from what I wrote (though it’s clearly possible).
I still don’t know how, conveniently, to refer to a specific ‘answer’ (part of a thread) - ie I see no permalink (I have since!).
Maybe other irritations that I’ve either forgotten and/or since adjusted to.
PS I can’t drag the edit screen out of the way of what is underneath it.
I’ve found the entry you mention for People View (wish I could configure the Family screen from there too!) but I doubt calculated would help because I’d like to ‘flag’ " No child" rather than “No child yet”.
It was because of issues like translation that I doubted the facility yet exists, as I think the Attribute route would require a ‘fixed’ (non-Custom) option, so ‘the system’ would know what to look for as the trigger.
Anyway, many thanks and I will mark this as Solved because the archive link you pointed me to has answered my question - no, it does not exist and no, consideration won’t be given.
