Mainly because the Gramps project has been around for a long time (big ball of string comes to mind) and with volunteers they do what interest them only. Apart from that I can say that it looks to have been slowly improving with each release see the following issues [https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=8888 8888], [https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=9042 9042], [https://gramps-project.org/bugs/view.php?id=10919 10919] the last one which has been closed (possibly accidentally as not all of it has been done!) and the associated issues. See https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=GEPS_034:_Improve_usability#Improve_Help_and_Documentations_in_Gramps also.

:: Understood and thanks for the link, just a little frustrated, so much outdated stuff here! I'll keep chipping away at it at least from the wiki side. [[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 02:09, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
word 'view' has a different meaning in Gramps and may confuse readers. see https:// www. gramps- project.org/ wiki/ index. php/Gramps_Glossary#view It best to reserve it for referring to the central pane of the GUI for each Navigator category. The variants within a navigator Category are view modes.
Plugin manager should be called a dialog or a window instead of a view. I was going to change the term but it looks like you have some ongoing work happening on the page. Didn't want to accidentally revert some of your changes.

I'm aware of the meaning of "view" as I've been using Gramps for a while but I'm guessing in this case most readers are intelligent enough to discern the difference, but if you feel different it is a wiki so go for it and I won't revert any edit you make, but keep in mind I've not introduced the word view I've only moved it up the page have a look at the page before I started the [https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Plugin_Manager_Plugin&diff=74007&oldid=74006 edits]. I'll move on as I see plenty of other outdated pages that need some attention :) [[User:Gioto|Gioto]] ([[User talk:Gioto|talk]]) 08:53, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
::Thank you. I spent some time reviewing the wiki for explicit guidelines. The visual Guide to the Gramps interface seems to reserve 'window' for the main application window. Views are for the center pane cetegories, alternative view layouts are view mode plugins (whether add-on or built-in) So it's now consistent & ready for new expansions. ::::As I said I'll move on as I see plenty of other outdated pages that need some attention :) Good luck!!
