This appendix lists keybindings (also known as Keyboard shortcuts) you can use on the Gramps dialogs, so as to avoid the use of the mouse.

Some keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously. Keyboard shortcuts may depend on the keyboard layout (localisation) and on your computers operating systems.
