Format issues Detailed Ancestral text report

Richard Troxel
I ran a report today for one branch of the family and discovered a formatting problem. The endnote annotation which follows a numbered principal does not appear in superscript format, rather in normal text format. The following before and after editing examples illustrate the issue. The annotation in question is highlighted in yellow. The remaining annotations within the report, excluding all numbered principals, all seem fine to me. This is easy to fix on a one by one basis, but I had to make over one hundred corrections in this small report.

What version of Gramps?  What is the output format (OpenDocument Text, or something else)?

Because in Gramps 5.0.2 with Detailed Ancestral Report 1.0 on Linux exporting to OpenDocument Text and opening with Libre Office 6.1.5, it appears  to work just fine.

I ran the report on the home person in the example database (for just 3 generations) in both RTF & ODT formats using Gramps 5.0.1-1 on Windows. But those had superscripts in the place described.

Could you create a new Tree, import the example file and see if the problem persists with Reports:Text Reports:Detailed Ancestral Report...? 

If so, there may be an options interaction.  

Question for other users. Options for the Report are extensive -- 7 tabs worth! Is there a file holding these options that could be transferred?

My bad, Gramps 5.1.0, Linux Mint 19, Cinnamon O/S. With exporting to Open Document Text and opening with Libre Office 6.0.7.3. There are many variables in this report as Brian has pointed out. On the chance that it is a variable causing the problem, I will experiment with different configurations to see it that does the trick. I will report back with my findings unless someone else finds the issue first.

I didn't post the link to the example file instructions. Here it is:

Regarding the options...
I suspect that the ability to save the options & restore them would be a need of a pro genealogist wanting to use Gramps for production use. A user might come up with a style effective for print (on different page sizes for US, & Europe), another for web reference, large print for vision impaired, and so forth.

Or say that you put out a family book with custom sections for each tree branch, cousin or sib. 5 years from now, you might want to re-output a section to include the recent family events. The ideal would be restore an archived copy of the report formatting & just re-print. (Although it might be necessary to rollback to the same Rev of Gramps and import the XML updates.)

It would be sufficient to know what file to archive/restore with the project. Adding an interface would be be more work than value.

Re: Format issues Detailed Ancestral text rep

OK, thanks everyone for the input. I have installed the example tree and run 3 reports from the example tree and 3 more from my tree... All reports were formatted as designed. I don't know what happened to the report that was badly formatted... maybe gremlins? Sorry for the alarm (p.s. the new test reports were run with no changes in the report options from the first report - the mystery thickens).
