From GRAMPS 3.0.x, the manual is no longer distributed with GRAMPS, and only available online, so you need an internet connection to be able to read the manual. It is is available from within GRAMPS by pressing F1, or through the help menu, and provides in depth instructions on the use of GRAMPS.

GRAMPS 3.1.x Manual

The 3.1.x Manual is at the moment only available in wiki format.

NOTE: As at 23 January 2009, these pages have simply been 'rolled over' from the 3.0 manuals, with search/replace to make the titles and references to 3.1. Only after translators and developers have completed more work will they be better representations of version 3.1...

Note that for distribution reasons, all edits to this manual must be dual-license: as GPL and GNU Free Documentation License.

The aim is to be also able to create a distributable manual. See Manual Generation 3.0 for ideas on how to do this.

The motivation for a wiki manual is that it is editable by all users and allows cross linking to normal wiki content, greatly improving the quality of the manuals. It does make translating the manual harder. Ideas are welcome to improve this.
