Selecting the {{man button|Directory}} button gives you a {{man label|Select media directory}} editor where you can fill in the required path.

* The Third-party Addon {{man label|[[Addon:MediaMerge|Merge Media]]}} that searches your database for media file entries that are pointing to the same actual file and when found, they can be merged together.

[[Category:How do I...]]
<div style="background:lightcyan">
Paste the raw '''[[:Category:Tutorials|Tutorials]]''' outline for the '''[[:Category:How_do_I...|How Do I...]]''' article above the '''See also''' section. This might start with pasting in a copy of a useful thread from one of the Gramps maillists.
Saving this file as a 'work in progress' will insert the code behind this reference template. (Preview only show the results, not the markup formatting control.) You can use the appended special formatting example template to pre-populate a virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard.  Snip pieces to paste special formatting to enhance the outline.
Adding a ''feature documentation'' link pointing to the introduction of the interface element in the wiki will relieve you of the burden explaining how to find the feature.
Finding a ''[[Gramps_Glossary|Gramps Glossary]] term'' to link may be easier than choosing the best introductory section in the wiki.
  <small>&#91;&#91;Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active Person]]
  &#91;&#91;Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]]</small>
Glossary terms (like [[Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active Person]] above) are normally lowercase and use an underscore between words. They have a brief description and may already have the introductory text and practical tutorial linked. You can fall back to the Letter index (like using '[[Gramps_Glossary#P|P]]' with [[Gramps_Glossary#P|Primary Object]] above) if you don't know the exact entry.
Since most of these ''How do I...'' tutorials are likely to have been prompted by a MailList discussion, a set of example 'See also' link are included for reference.
Pointing the ''maillist archived thread'' link to the original message that inspired the tutorial give proper credit for the idea &amp; reveals the background discussion.
Pointing another link to a good search phrase for the archive allows similar discussions to be explored.
Once the tutorial Preview is satisfactory, save a revision of the document. Then clean out the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard cluttering up your tutorial and save a final revision.
To remove the virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard, simply delete everything from the beginning of this section to the bottom of the document. It is all disposable.
If the Copy&amp;Paste clipboard is needed again, simply paste the following line at the end of the Edit box, Save a revision, &amp; edit again.(Previewing isn't enough... a revision must be saved.)
<pre>  {{subst:Template:How_do_I}}</pre>
Other wiki [[:Category:Templates|Templates]] can be used as virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboards in the same way.
