This section describes the Quick Views as part of the different reports available in Gramps.

Quick Views

Fig. 13.8.2 Quick View context menu on the People Category - Person (List) View
Fig. 13.8.3 Quick View Report - People view - Same Surname - example popup window, showing right-click context menu

Quick Views are report windows available via the context menu of the most of the category views and some of the edit dialogs.

These quick views are generate reports based on the first selected record and have no options to confuse the process. However, like the main views, the user defined formats selected in the Display tab of the Preferences will carry through in these reports.

Quick View reports are static. The contents of these floating windows will not update as the object focus changes nor when the record data is edited. If you want a more dynamic version of the Report, a QuickView Gramplet can be added to the sidebar or bottombar. The report will be regenerated as the object focus shifts. The Configure toolbar tool (or View menu "Configure... option) will have a Quick View tab to select the Object type and report being displayed.


Clipboarding Quick View data

Use the context menu (Right-click) option for Select All to highlight QuickView content that is not contained in a formatted table. Then use the context menu again to Copy the selected content to the OS Clipboard.

For Quick Views that have lists of records in tabular format, copy QuickView Table row data to the OS Clipboard by using the Context menu (Right-click) option within a table row to choose the Copy all menu option. If the QuickView has multiple tables, they must be copied individually.

Location

The Quick Views can be difficult to locate. The directly accessible interface is via context menus rather than by icons, menu items or being explicitly listed in dialogs. And the indirect access is even more transparent: it is from hotlinks or context menus in gramplets or dialogs.

The following built-in QuickView reports are available via context menus per category:

The following built-in "Miscellaneous" QuickView reports are available indirectly: via context menus in gramplets and dialogs:

QuickView Add-ons

Sort the Add-ons list table on the Type column and scroll to the Quickview grouping.

As of 2022, the available add-on Quickviews (in the People category view) include:

Quick View Gramplet

Configurable to show the Quick View you want to see.

Available for use from the Dashboard and each of the category view sidebars and bottombars.

See: Gramplets > Quick View

Making your own Quick view

You can create your own Quick view, even with limited programming/coding knowledge.

Many users want to produce a view quickly for their specific needs, but are hindered by the fact they do not want to learn python fully, nor the intricacies of a complicated program like Gramps.

These views are short textual reports that the user can register with Gramps, so they automatically appear in the context menu's.

Accompanying this, the simple database access and simple document interface's have been constructed, so as to hide as much complexity as possible.

See the Quick Views Coding page to make your own.
