Thumbnail Generator Tool in progress

The Thumbnail Generator Tool regenerates thumbnails for images attached to objects.


Once this addon has been installed:

  • Select Menu Tools > Utilities -> Thumbnail Generator Tool...
There is no confirmation bailout

Despite the horizontal ellipsis ("…") at the end of this menu selection, no additional dialog appears before the action begins

  • No confirmation (preemptive cancel) opportunity.
  • No options are offered.

The thumbnails will be regenerated in four passes:

  • Generating thumbnails for person references
  • Generating thumbnails for family references
  • Generating thumbnails for event references
  • Generating thumbnails for place references
