The column width reset issue also occurs in the Gnome and Windows
versions. Remember that the 2.1 version is Beta at this point and
there's still a lot of little things that will probably get fixed
along the path to release. My biggest issue is the search filter
doesn't work for me in Places. Works great in People though. I've
had a tough time getting my mind around the "event focused" of the 2.1
Gramps but I am becoming comfortable with it - just a bunch of work
getting my database compliant. A while back Alex told us that gramps
would add the event description when importing a gedcom. My
experience to this point is that it seems to address a small
percentage of my events. So to try everything out, I manually enter
most of them.
