export to .gramps xml.
Unzip the .gramps file, and open in ascii text editor (wordpad, gedit, kate, ...)


Search for the + character, and how it typically occurs. Probably here it will be
+"</description>

as it is at the end of an event description.
So search on that string, and replace with the same string without the +
Save, import in a new empty family tree.

My database has a sizable tree contributed by a relative in
which all the individuals are marked with a cross, e.g.
"Burnett, Jane +" for some reason. I want to tidy up the
database and get rid of these crosses.
I've removed them from Persons by exporting the data as CSV,
editing and re-importing.
However, all the Event Descriptions still have the crosses,
e.g. "Birth of Burnett, Jane +" because the events were not
exported to csv.
What I'd like to do is delete all these Event Descriptions
and allow the Extract Event Description tool to re-form
them. Is there any way of doing this or another way of
achieving the same result? Deleting them individually would
be a mammoth task.
