ID Generation

Michael Marciel

Hi

 

New to this list.  Is there any way to remove the leading zeros for the individuals or family  when exporting the list to GEDCOM ?

 

To begin a new life, start with forgiveness

Re: ID Generation

Dave Scheipers
Try setting the format to one digit.

Menu >> Edit >> Preferences >> ID Formats tab. Change the %04d to %01d

Then run Menu >> Tools >> Family Tree Processing >> Reorder Gramps IDs

This tool should actually be named Reformat Gramps IDs. It sets the
IDs to the format set in Preferences. It does not re-sequence the
numbers after records have been deleted or merged.

And please, make a gramps xml backup before running any Tool gramplet,
especially tools that do batch editing. It is always much easier to
import a backup into a new empty database than it is to undo something
that does not go as expected.

I hope this is what you were looking for, Dave
