{{man notetip|This pluginaddon|is more of a proof-of-concept than a fully featured pluginaddon. This plugin addon is still useful given the limitations specified below.<br>Source code for Gramps 3.4 available here:}}
[[Image:FilteredDescendantReport.png|thumb|right|400px|Sample Filtered Descendant Report Dialog]]
The {{man label|Filtered Descendant Report}} is directly based on the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_6#Detailed_Descendant_Report|Detailed Descendant Report]]}}. As such, it includes all the options (which make sense) in addition to some new ones. Because multiple family branches can be included, the Henry and d'Aboville numbering systems options were removed (considering that people common to more than one branch will get the number assigned to them when they are first found).
The main difference is that a filter can be used to determine who to include in the report (so that you can have several family branches) instead of basing all the descendants from a single person. The key is to find at least one common person to all the rules in the filter. If at least one common person is found, the generations can be aligned so that it doesn't matter if the head of each branch is in the same generation.
{{man warn|'''CAVEAT'''|the only supported output file format currently is ''OpenDocument Text Enhanced''. Running the plugin with any other output format will cause an error (because the other format backends haven't been updated to support the needed enhancements).}}
{{man warn|'''CAVEAT'''|this is a second version, and as such has much missing that people might want. One obvious one is support for ALL backend report formats, not just ODF. Also, not currently possible to get the photo date to put into the caption. Also, no translation for messages (everything is currently English-only). This version is being released for Gramps v3.3 and to see if there is any interest outside myself :-{&#x007b;}, and possibly to get my enhancement changes into the core if they seem useful.}}
== Differences ==
6) Caption Format
This option (on the new Caption tab) specifies what should be in photo captions. For full details on what can be specified, see the [[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_2|Substitution Values]] wiki page.
7) Image cropping
