Overview

The Chapter People - Picked item adds person entries to a chapter for multiple people selected by ID number or via the [Picklist...] button. For other ways to add people to a chapter, see the Chapter People help page.

The Chapter People - Picked item provides the same functionality as using multiple Chapter Person items, with the following differences:

  • Chapter Person items have a higher selection priority than the Chapter People - Picked item.
  • The Chapter People - Picked item includes a list of people option.

Properties

Title

The Title property identifies the User Item in the User Items list. The title does not appear in the chapter.

Enabled

See Enabled in the Common Properties section of the User Items help page.

Page Break Before

If Page Break Before is checked, Gedcom Publisher will add page-break-before: always to the CSS styles for the first person in the group, and many e-book readers will begin the content for the first person on a new page. Unfortunately, some e-book readers do not honor the page-break-before property.

Gedcom Publisher always adds page-break-before: always to the CSS styles for the second and subsequent people in the group.

People

Add one or more people to the People list. A person entry for each person in the list will be added to the chapter in the sequence shown in the list. Drag and drop items to change the sequence, or use the arrow buttons beneath the list.

Embedded List of People

You may include a list of people who are selected by this Chapter People item. The list is rendered before the person entry for the first person in the output. The list is intended as a directory of the ensuing people.

The bult-in list capability is more convenient to use than a separate List of People item because the embedded list will automatically include the correct people without re-specifying a filter and it provides an option to sort the list in the same sequence as the person entries.

Include List of People

If Include List of People is checked, the output will include a List of People that contains the people selected by this item. Use the remaining properties to configure the list.

List Sequence

By default, the List of People will be in the same sequence as the people appear in the chapter. You may alter the sequence in the list by choosing another option from the List Sequence pull-down menu.

Column Items

The Column Items list defines the columns in the list. The default items are Name and Lifespan. See the Column Items section on the List of People page for more information.

Date Format

The Date Format pull-down menu controls the format of dates rendered by Person Field items in the Column Items. See the Date Format section on the List of People page for more information.

Lifespan Format

The Lifespan Format determines the format of any lifespans that appear in the list. See the Lifespan Format section on the List of People page for more information.
