To add or edit a person: add the most universal ways of Adding a Person... via the Add menu or the keybinding
== To add or edit a person ==
The [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Navigation#Add|{{man menu|Add}} menu]] for each [[Gramps_Glossary#category|Category]] [[Gramps_Glossary#view|View]] includes the option to add a [[Gramps_Glossary#person|Person]]. A [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Keybindings#Common_keybindings|keybinding]] for adding a Person is also supported in all categories views. There are multiple ways to add a new person to your family tree. Many have an implied context which saves a step in grafting the Person into a Tree. (e.g., adding a Person from within the Family context of the Relationships or Charts views automatically inserts the new Person into the Family. You don't have to create the Person as a separate action, then subsequently find and drag the new Person into that Family.) We will cover some of them the different workflows as we proceed.
===Add a new person===

The simplest most obvious way to enter insert a person in your tree is to add them from the {{icon|peop}}{{man label|People}} View. While you are in the {{icon|peop}}{{man label|People}} View, click the Toolbar {{man button|+}} button.
