Display formatting

Many of the graphical reports allow you to customize the information on the display. Variable substitutions are used to substitute personal or marriage information for a particular symbol.

$n Displays the person's name in the form of FirstName LastName
$N Displays the person's name in the form of LastName, FirstName
$i Displays the GRAMPS ID associated with the person.
$b Displays the person's date of birth
$B Displays the person's place of birth
$d Displays the person's date of death
$D Displays the person's place of death
*s Displays the name of the person's spouse in the form of FirstName LastName
$S Displays the name of the person's spouse in the form of LastName, FirstName.
$m Displays the marriage date of the person and the spouse.
$M Displays the place associated with the marriage of the person and the spouse.

Conditional printing

'{' and '}' have been added to help define what prints. It is based on these rules:

no variables within closing prints everything.
variables inside and none have information in the database.

ie. '{d. $d $D}' when the person is alive

Nothing prints inside
variables inside and at least one has information in the database. everything prints
