Hello All,

    Does anyone know a simple way to remove multiple attributes from a database?
    I am thinking of the "Merged Gramps ID" added by default when importing a shared file. It would be nice if there was an option on whether or not this is added. I have over 2000 people with this attribute and it will be a long job to edit each person to remove this.
    Any help, or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
Ken.



I did something similar by exporting my tree to XML, decompressing the file, editing it to remove unwanted attributes, then importing to a new tree. I would be interested to know of a better method.

The there is a feature request to enhance the SetAttribute tool to do this.

It is assigned to Doug, but I think he has forgotten about it.
