Overview

The Chapter People - Filtered item adds person entries to a chapter for people who pass its People Filter. For other ways to add people to a chapter, see the Chapter People help page.

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.

Sort People

The Sort People property determines the sequence of people included via this item. The default value is "By birth". The other options are "By birth (descending)", "By ID#" and "By name".

People Filter

Add filter terms to the People Filter to select the people you want to include in this item's output.

If you leave the filter empty, the Chapter People - Filtered item will select everyone who has not been selected by a previous Chapter People item.

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.

Include Generation Headings in List

Headings will only appear if the list is sorted in the same sequence as the people in the chapter, and only if the chapter includes generation headings between generations.

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.
