Hi, Benny.

I looked at the Complete Individual Report on the online manual and forgot about it. I just when back and looked again at  http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Gramps_3.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports#Complete_Individual_Report says  it "provides individual summaries similar to that of the Individual Summary Report." but there is nothing saying what Individual Summary includes, so I probably just kept looking the first time.

I just ran the Complete Individual Report and like what it does.....kinda sorta. It looks like it has all of the people sorted by the order in which they were entered into the database with no obvious way to sort them by surname and family except to save the report as a text file then manually sort each page. That would take forever with almost 600 people in the database.


Dave,

Thanks for following up on this. This suggest two things that you can do to help:

1) Edit the Complete Individual Report wiki page to better reflect what it does and provide more detail so the next person will have a better clue.

2) Make a Feature Request at http://www.gramps-project.org/bugs/my_view_page.php with improvements, such as sorting by surname, birthdate, etc. You can post the feature request URL back here if you want, too, so that future generations can follow up on the results.

Thanks!

-Doug

I don't understand why it has to be that much extra work. One of my friends
is using a Windows program (don't remember which program) that does what it
calls (I Think) an Individual Report, which includes the Events, parents,
spouses, and children of each person, notes and attached jpegs.

    
What is much extra work? The Complete Individual Report of Gramps does
the same. You open it from the plugins directory, set the options, and
click run.
Not all jpegs are there, only the default, you could do a feature
request to add things.
In version 3.2 it will be possible to group events nicely in the output report.

Is there a way to do a Text Report like the Detailed Descendant Report that
picks up everyone in the database? The Detailed Descendant Report requires a
"Home Person" be selected and then only picks up descendants of that person.


It would be hard to have some order in what you propose. The following
is possible:

--> an individual detailed report, with filter on all the people in
the database. You would see the children, but then need to go to the
page of child to continue

--> a book report where you combine descendant reports of several
'root' people of your database into one report. You could however just
as well export to eg odt format, and then copy/paste several of those
reports together.
