== Download not working ==
Hi On the [ PseudonymTree.gramps] when I attempt to download [ gz File:GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz] I only get an empty file and checking the wiki filesystem only shows a zero-byte file? Please upload a new version or send to me, or possibly convert it to a "zip" file for the windows users? Also, a lot of what you have done in this file should be added/merged to the example.gramps which has the same purpose and is included with each release of Gramps, eg raise a feature request to merge the two files?<br />
Sam888 ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 02:29, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
<hr />
That's odd as the .gz file lists & downloads as 9kb on my phone & PC. I did something unusual for the hotlinks. (Maybe that is why you're seeing a zero byte file if you choose Download while right-clicking the link?) The links forward to the file management wiki page instead of being a download link for the file itself. (It took a bit of searching to discover how to correctly override the linking of the image too!)
Please note that the gzip (GNU zip) format is native to the .gpkg & .Gramps formats as written during backup in Gramps. Using the ZIP format would make it incompatible with Gramps.<div style="background:lightcyan">
FinallyOnce the template content is cloned, Edit the page. Paste the raw '''[[:Category:Tutorials|Tutorials]]''' outline for your new '''[[:Category:How_do_I...|How Do I see ...]]''' article above the example'''See also''' section.gramps and this file as being at cross-purposes & not suitable for mergingThis "raw Tutorial outline" might be simply pasting in a copy of a useful thread from one of the Gramps maillists or the Discourse forum.
Example.gramps contains records VALID for actual genealogical use & real-world testing. (Since it is also used for unresolved bug reports & automated testing, changing this now 'standardized' Reference File might invalidate those key processes. Mods to the example.gramps probably ought to pass through a new 'standards' verification & approval.) ---
The Pseudo tree is specifically incompatible with real-world use. It is an abstraction modelFinding a ''[[Gramps_Glossary|Gramps Glossary]] term'' to link may be easier than choosing the best introductory section in the wiki. <small>&#91;&#91;Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active Person]] &#91;&#91;Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]]<br /small>Bamaustin Glossary terms (like [[User talk:BamaustinGramps_Glossary#active_person|talkActive Person]]above) 10:46, 23 February 2020 are normally lowercase and use an underscore between words. They have a brief description and may already have the introductory text and practical tutorial linked. You can fall back to the Letter index (UTClike using '[[Gramps_Glossary#P|P]]' with [[Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]] above)if you don't know the exact entry.
== Rollback on user manual ==Since most of these ''How do I...''m rolling back several edits you made tutorials are likely to the past user manual and the current user manual to nonexistent categories. I'll protect the older non-English user manuals from change. Please only edit the current user manual and if you notice that the old user manual can be editedhave been prompted by a MailList discussion, drop me a note, pleaseset of example 'See also' link are included for reference. <br />Sam888 ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 02:48, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
IPointing the ''m sorry to see those rollbacks. The categories were already in use for other pages in those languages. These changes merely consolidated all (except 4 admin locked pages) non-English pages falling into the maillist archived thread'Documentation' category. It harmonized them into link to the subcategory listings for each language. This still left the obsolete manual pages cluttering original message that inspired the category but we've been discussing options tutorial give proper credit for addressing that. (There is value in keeping the old versions on idea &amp; reveals the wiki. Offloading them would break the 'Help' in legacy versions of Gramps. Also, some of the old documentation illustrates changes in approach & gives timeline context to evolving features.) Will follow-up in emailbackground discussion.<br />Bamaustin ([[User talk:Bamaustin|talk]]) 11:01, 23 February 2020 (UTC)

I believe this tool was probably created to parse imported data. And the source program transferred a Place without an ID *''Filenames'' or structured Hierarchy... just a chunk of variable format text. It might even be from a vCard instead of another genealogy program. <code>Filenames</code>
We*<tt>'ll probably have to look at the code and hope they included comments about what deficiency inspired them to build the tool. 'Replaceable text''</tt>
It is an early enough tool that it was built by Don. The code indicates that there was a Place format change ... from a collated comma separated field into a distinct hierarchy form. *{{man label|Labels}} for buttons and other portions of the graphical interface
