Plugin name: People separated less than <N> degrees of <person> [Rule]
Description: Filter rule that matches relatives by degrees of separation
Authors: Matthias Kemmer
Add Rule → Relationship filters has two identical lines:
People separated less than <N> degrees of <person>
Neither offers the option “Include partners”, and both include spouses as well as blood relations.
I noticed I had the same issue. I looked at the plugin’s files in my user directory and noticed that they did not include the code for the checkbox. So I downloaded the files from GitHub (which do have the code) and replaced the ones in my user directory. Now the checkbox appears, but the plugin manager says it is only version 1.0.0 and an update is available. Indeed the code that I downloaded has version 1.0.0. I don’t know where 1.1.8 cam from or why it did not include the checkbox.
Please would you include an option to include the parents of the siblings who are ancestors of each subject of the rule. The current addon gives a disconnected graph when the result of the filter is input into a report (such as Graphs → Relationship graph).
I want the filter to give me the same people as output by the deep connections gamplet, so that I can share the path between two people but with more detail than the deep connections gramplet gives.
I can get the result I want but it requires four auxiliary filters to achieve this.
Also I’d prefer if both inputs to the addon were filters because it’s more flexible than hard-wired IDs.
