    Wow, lots of fixes! Thanks.

    Seems to work fine on OSX 10.10 Yosemite, too. However, all of the icons have doubled in size since this update or possibly another recent update that I missed. The icons are larger on screen but they are scaled up 22px images. At least, this is what is happening on a Retina MacBook.

    These oversized icons cause some UI problems/conflicts but Gramps appears to be working fine otherwise. I’m guessing this a problem with GTK+ on OSX.

    Can I download Gramps to a thumb drive. I have a couple of presentation

    May someone help me…

    Installed Gramps; deleted the previous version after making back-ups; followed instructions and found that it worked with the larger datasets, but not with smaller ones which all broke down.
    Afterwards I tried the bigger datasets again, which broke down as well. Errors were created, files were locked and ultimately nothing worked; original files were corrupted.
    What can I do?

    When will there be a version for 64 bit, windows 8.1

    Updated to 4.1.1-1 from an older version. Adapted my place names to the
    new “wrapping” scheme. bit of work, but it found a few bugs, and made me think hard. had no real problems. OSX 10.9.5

    in der deutsch übersetzten Benutzeroberfläche (Mac), in der “Personen”-Ansicht lann man sich ja am unteren Rand Gramplets mit weiterführenden Informationen zu einer in der Liste angeklickten Person anzeigen lassen. Hier sei der nützliche “Verwandte”-Tab erwähnt, in dem allerdings statt der Anzeige von “Mutter” leider fehlerhaft “Muter” angezeigt wird.
    Mein erster Versuch diesen Fehler selbst zu korrigieren schlug fehl, die entsprechende Datei muß irgendwie kompliert werden, oder so.

    Ansonsten bin ich von dem Programm begeistert. Gerade ein halbes Tausend an Ahnen erfasst und mit entsprechenden Informationen angereichert und bisher keinerlei Probleme dabei feststellen können. Einzig, daß ein kompletter grafischer Stammbaum (über 12 generationen) jetzt in lesbarer Schriftgröße gute 6 meter lang wird, erscheint dann doch etwas sinnbefreit 😉

    Kann da nicht ein Entwickler mal eine Möglichkeit programmieren, die eine optimierte und platsparendere Ausgabe berechnet?-)
