In the interests of transparency:
I made two other changes, related to per-family tree options, which do not
seem to have been mentioned in this thread:
(1) I changed the default filename for reports to contain the family tree
name followed by an abbreviation of the report name. This default is only
used if the user has not already chosen a specific name for the report.
Having reverted the movement of the report-options file, this means that if
you choose a specific name for a report for ANY database, then that name
will be used for the output file for that report for all databases. Hence,
this will only affect users who have not chosen a file name for a report.
Again, I think this is helpful to separate out the same report for different
(2) I implemented the paths.website-directory (in gramps.ini) in line with
paths.report-directory. paths.website-directory was declared, but not set
and used properly. These two directories are ONLY used when the user does no
specify a particular name for a report. If a name is specified by the user,
then that full pathname was and is always used for the report.
paths.website-directory now works exactly the same as
paths.report-directory. It is only altered and used when the last element in
the path is the default name.
I don't think these changes relate to the examples discussed in this thread,
and I think that they will affect very few users. Since they don't impact
the database directory at all - they only relate to data that is already in
the various options files, do you want me to revert these too?
I would certainly like to keep these changes, because whenever there is more
than one family tree, it becomes very difficult to remember which file
contains which report, and it is all too easy to accidentally overwrite a
report with another report for a different tree.
