Thanks for your edit, you need to know that the "theme" tab in preferences does not come with a default Gramps installation , it is something called an addon or plugin not sure you can see it Addon:Themes. The user manual should only reflect a stock standard Gramps without addons. GulliblePangolin (talk) 04:40, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Sanitizing sample data

I noted your enhancement suggestion 11601 for sanitizing/anonymizing sample Trees submitted in association with a bug report.

It piqued my curiosity. So I did some searching.

It appears that there are several Python libraries to support redaction activities. (Chloe McAteer's Revolutionising Redaction- My Final Year Project posting was interesting reading.) However, the top Search results all seemed to target redacting PDFs rather than database samples.

Maybe we just need more sample Trees?

When I built a sample database for a student reporting system, I used cartoon characters... they proved more memorable when writing an example about reporting on interactions between multiple students. I could leverage the established comicstrip relationships: a bullying example report example with Popeye, Bluto, Olive Oyl, Sweet pea, & Poopdeck Pappy required far less explanation than one with generic names.

For charting & filter testing in Gramps however, the relationship were more complex than familiar cartoon families. So I built a Tree where the names were based on the Relationship to the Home Person and IDs were based on Genealogical Numbering Systems.

Third party addon

my apologies, I will stop

my apologies, I was blundering around trying to add some details regarding Database Differences Report and get the Help link in the current version connected to something. I will stop making changes.

Sorry I'm not trying to discourage you I'm only stopping you from placing third party addons in the user manual the correct thing would be to fix the addon code for help link to point to the correct page. I see that anothe person has reversed your edit for the same reason in the past with the "theme" addon. --Adamvazquez (talk) 00:45, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
