People expect to start a family tree and the icons actual wording the on tool tip is "Manage databases" which is never mentioned on the page here!

People expect to start a family tree and the icons actual wording the on tool tip is "Manage databases" which is never mentioned on the page here! This was pointed out when I introduced a friend to Gramps last week, initially caused a bit of confusion when you tell a beginner to click on the family tree icon and they expect the tooltip to match! --Daleathan (talk) 23:10, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
