When creating custom filters, always make sure you have the [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Gramplets#Filter|Filter Gramplet]] in the [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Main_Window#Bottombar_and_Sidebar|sidebar]] visible. This allows testing the filter on real data before putting the filter in general use. Test each filter individually... don't set up a 2nd stage filter until the 1st stage has been tested. To test: in the Filter tab of the sidebar, select the custom filter you made; then click the {{man button|Find}} button.
You create '''Create a custom filter by taking with the following steps: '''
* {{man button| {{icon|stock_add}}}}&nbsp;{{man tooltip|Add a new filter}}
* Click on {{man label|Filter Editor}} {{man button| {{icon|stock_add}}}}&nbsp;{{man tooltip|Add a new filter}} to start creating a new filter
* Give your filter a unique '''name'''
* Click on {{man label|Define Filter : Rule List}} {{man button| {{icon|stock_add}}}}&nbsp;{{man tooltip|Add another rule to the filter}} to see the filter rules (limited to those available in the current View)
* Select an appropriate filtering '''rule'''
* Add further rules as needed
* Set Select the appropriate {{man label|Define Filter : Options}} pop-up menu item to define how the rules interact (. ''The [[man menu|All rules must apply}} option is selected by default.'' This is only necessary when there are multiple rules).
* Click on the {{man label|Define Filter}} {{man button| OK}}
* Click on the {{man label|Filter Editor}} {{man button| Close}} ''[Note that new custom filters (or changes ) only take effect after Closing closing the Filters window]Filter Editor.''
