Bulk edit/convert places?

Michel Vuijlsteke
Hi,

My places (mostly in Belgium) all have consistent names, e.g.
  • Alfons Biebuycklaan 24, Gentbrugge, Oost-Vlaanderen, België
  • Annonciadenstraat, Gent, Oost-Vlaanderen, België
  • Boesinghe Straat n° 15, Ieper, West-Vlaanderen, België
  • Jandrain, Brabant, België
  • Lodelinsart, Charleroi, Henegouwen, België
So each item in a comma-separated list is always enclosed by the next item. 

Is there a way to somehow automatically convert this into a correct place tree?

Try the generate place hierarchy tool attached to this feature request:

8323: Need tool to update place titles
https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=8323

Make a backup first.  Only run it on a backup of your data.
