Gedcom files that are posted on sites which check for DNA matches only require birth/marriage/death information. Right now RM adds all events to a gedcom. I'd like to see a filter that allows the user to select which events to include in the gedcom export, or at the very least, an option to select BMD events only.
Event filter for GEDCOM export

If such custom profiles were introduced users could define which events were included in each profile.

For me, that would mean editing and unchecking about 80 fact types for a Gedcom export. Then I would have to re-edit and check those boxes again when I want a more inclusive Gedcom. As you say, quite laborious.
I would urge the developers to design a fact type filter that can be accessed from the file export page, not the fact type list page. The same filter could be accessible when creating HTML files, printing family group sheets, printing narrative reports or any other report that requires a selection of fact types in the report. The "Include when:" options could then be eliminated from the fact type list options.

Confirming this is on the enhancement request list.
