Typographical conventions in the Gramps Wiki Manual: {{man button|∨}} (''Down Arrowhead'' button)
Gramps is an Open Source software package, which means you are free to make copies and distribute it to anyone you like. It's developed and maintained by a worldwide team of volunteers whose goal is to make Gramps powerful, yet easy to use.
 
__FORCETOC__
== Why use Gramps? ==
Gramps has all these capabilities and more. Notably, it allows you to integrate bits and pieces of data as they arise from your research and to put them in one place -- your computer. You can then use your computer to manipulate, correlate, and analyze your data, rather than messing with reams of paper.
 <onlyincludespan id="Typographical conventions">== Typographical conventions in the Gramps Wiki Manual ==</span><onlyinclude>In this book, some words are marked with special typography:
*Applications
*<tt>''Replaceable text''</tt>
*{{man label|Labels}} for buttons and other portions of the graphical interface. A trailing &#x25B4; and &#x25BE; in a column header indicates the sort order for table column. &#x25C2; more headers or tabs &#x25B8; *{{man tooltip|Hint text}} for hover or roll-over hints (aka Tooltips) that identify elements of the graphical interface
*Menu selections look like this: {{Man menu|Menu -> Submenu -> Menu Item}}(Spaces should enclose the <code>-></code> to make webpage auto-translation recognize menu words.) Gramplet pop-up menus are marked with a {{man button|&or;}} (''Down Arrowhead'' button).
