Issue using filters when exporting gedcom file.

Erik P. Olsen
I have tried to set up a filter for exporting a subset of my family tree. I want to pick
one person and then export a gedcom file containing this person and all his/her
ancestors. I thought it would be rather straight forward and created the filter
"Ancestors of <person>" and selected the person in question to be included, but the
subsequent export contain what looks like the entire family tree.

Did I run into a bug or was the filter too primitive.

Any help is highly appreciated.

I just tried it, and it worked like a charm.  When exporting, remember to
specify the correct Person Filter!!

(We've all made that mistake before...)

So "Ancestors of <person>" wasn't the correct Person Filter, then which one was?

Here's what I did, in three steps:

Thanks, Ron. That was exactly what I did. In my case it showed 106 people out of 2314, but
when I checked the ged file it contained all 2314 persons. However, after changing active
person and using the standard filter for ancestors of the active person I got 106 persons
only. So I definitely believe that this is a bug.
