Hi all Grampers
Today I was trying to tidy up notes on files in the "notes" tab and discovered a note with no 'Preview'. So I used the "Filter" tab to locate the reference this was attached to. Well not quite so easy!
Using GRAMPS: 3.2.0-1
Python: 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Apr 16 2010, 13:09:56...
The Note was attached to a Source Note (In this case a Online Web site - so heaps of records where associated). Clicking on the 'Reference' tab gave me the 'Source' tab, then clicked on the 'reference' tab within that showed me 50 +/- records with the same source. So how do I find which one this note is attached to?
So I took the ID No. in this case N0183, went to 'People' tab and entered the Note number in the Note: filter. The result was "Active object not visible" was shown on the bottom left corner info bar, then a person ID came up and their name. Well this was a lead but I still had no data in the main screen at all, I had to use the person ID No. in the filter to get to where I needed to be!
This showed that only 2 events occurred with this Person; Birth and a Marriage in my case. Not much to locate where this rogue note was assigned to.
My Question is, Could this have been made any simpler? It seems that the other notes and locations were much easier to get to! If I'm correct then this rogue source note would have appeared on all files?
Has anyone else found that the custom filter is not working either?
