Keyboard shortcuts can make your life easier.
The keybindings as available in GRAMPS, can be found in the User's Manual.
Speed up searching
If you are on a list view in GRAMPS, you can search an entry by simply typing the beginning letters.
- In the person view, if you want person Duchatel.
- Solution: Click on the list view (clicking on a person will do). Now type Du, and the list view will jump to people with the last name starting with Du.
Note: The same can be achieved with the key combination
CTRL+F, on the list view.
