The auto-expand for print concern might be addressed with a change to the print.css stylesheet.
I am tracking down documentation on that possibility in the MediaWiki support pages.
== Download not working ==Hi On the [ PseudonymTree.gramps] when I attempt to download [https://gramps<! 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 {{DEFAULTSORT:How do I.gpkg & .Gramps formats as written during backup in Gramps. Using the ZIP format would make it incompatible with category location|noreplace}}[[Category:Tutorial]][[Category:WikiContributors]][[Category:Addon]]
Finally, I see the example.gramps and this file as being at cross-purposes & not suitable for merging.
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.) <div style="background:lightcyan">

It is an abstraction model.<br />Bamaustin ( Paste the raw '''[[User talk:BamaustinCategory:Tutorials|talkTutorials]]) 10''' outline for your new '''[[:46, 23 February 2020 (UTC)Category:How_do_I...|How Do I...]]''' article above the '''See also''' section. This "raw Tutorial outline" might be simply pasting in a copy of a useful thread from one of the Gramps maillists or the Discourse forum.
== Rollback on user manual ==I'm rolling back several edits you made 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 edited, drop me a note, please. <br />Sam888 ([[User talk:Sam888|talk]]) 02:48, 23 February 2020 (UTC)---
IFinding a '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 'Documentation[[Gramps_Glossary|Gramps Glossary]] term'' category. It harmonized them into to link may be easier than choosing the subcategory listings for each language. This still left the obsolete manual pages cluttering the category but we've been discussing options for addressing that. (There is value best introductory section in keeping the old versions on the wiki. Offloading them would break the 'Help' in legacy versions of Gramps. Also, some of the old documentation illustrates changes in approach <small>&#91;&#91;Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active Person]] &#91;& gives timeline context to evolving features.) Will follow-up in email.#91;Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]]<br /small>Bamaustin Glossary terms (like [[User talk:BamaustinGramps_Glossary#active_person|talkActive Person]]above) 11:01, 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.
==This an unnecessary redirect category pageSince most of these ''How do I.==This an unnecessary redirect category page..'' tutorials are likely to have been prompted by a MailList discussion, a set of example 'See also' link are included for reference.
The category "How do I" is an unreferenced category Pointing the ''maillist archived thread'' link to the original message that inspired the tutorial give proper credit for "How do Ithe idea &amp; reveals the background discussion..."
Can we clean out unused categories Pointing another link to eliminate clutter in a good search phrase for the Category index?archive allows similar discussions to be explored.

The answer is yes to cleaning Then clean out the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard cluttering up, but please use the "What links here" link to determine that your tutorial and make sure the linked pages point to the correct page a final revision.

I was attempting to use the [[QueryGramplet|Query Gramplet]] but could not find as it is [ Unstable and not listed] in the addon list. I ended up attempting to manually install it from the link on the [[:5.1_Addons]] page, should a note be added to its page about this? Haven't tested yet but did manage to install and take a screenshot. Wonder why it is not listed for download? <br />

I believe this tool was probably created to parse imported data.

We'll probably have to look *<pre>Commands you type at the code and hope they included comments about what deficiency inspired them to build the tool. command line</pre>
It is an early enough tool that it was built by Don. The *''Filenames'' or <code indicates that there was a Place format change ... from a collated comma separated field into a distinct hierarchy form. >Filenames</code>
