Gramps_4.2_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters|the wiki manual on Filters]].When creating custom filters, always make sure you have the Filter sidebar visible so you can test them before use: either click on the Filter tab on the right, or click on ' Add a Gramplet' and select 'Filter'. To test, select the custom filter you made; then click Find.
You create a custom filter by taking the following steps:
Click on '''Editor''' in the top bar to display the drop-down list The last item is the '''Filter Editor''' for your current View Click on the '''Filter Editor''' Click on ''''+'''' to start creating a new filter Give your filter a '''name''' Click on ''''+'''' to see the filter rules available to you in your current View Select an appropriate '''rule'''
Add further rules as needed Set the necessary '''Option''' '''OK ''' '''Close ''' ''[Note that custom filters or changes only take effect after Closing the Filters window]''
There are rules to allow you to use filters defined for another View. In this way you can build up complex filtering involving several Views.
