===New Event tab pages===
The central part of the window displays tabs containing different categories of information. Click on a tab to view or edit its contents. The tabs provide the following information categories of the event data:

====Source Citations====

:The {{man label|Sources Citations}} tab lets you view and edit sources relevant to an event. The central part of the window lists all such source references stored in the database. The buttons {{man button|+ , Edit , and -}} let you add, modify, and remove a source reference associated with an event. Note that the {{man button|Edit}} and {{man button|-}} buttons become available only when a source reference is selected from the list.

====Notes====

{{man tip|Tip|If a tab label is in '''boldface''' type, this means it contains data. If not, it has no data.}}

{{-}}

== Editing event references ==

Event references connect a Event to a person and allow you to provide additional information about the event.

When adding event references to a {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Events|Edit Person]]'s Events}} tab, the {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Event_Reference_Editor_dialog|Event Reference Editor]]}} dialog appears.

{{-}}
===Event Reference Editor dialog===

{{man tip| Tip |Information in this dialog is specific to the particular reference. A single event can be referenced many times, and all such references will have in common the overall event information. This dialog lets you provide reference-specific data, such as relevant role, attribute to further specify and document the reference.}}

[[File:EventReferenceEditor-dialog-default-50.png|right|thumb|450px|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Event Reference Editor - dialog - default]]

The {{man label|New Citation}} dialog includes two sections, {{man label|Reference Information}} and {{man label|Shared Information}}.

== Editing information about media objects ==

To add or edit media data, switch to the {{man label|Media}} Category View and select the desired entry in the list of media. Double-click on that entry or click {{man button|Edit}} on the toolbar to invoke the following {{man label|New Media}} editor dialog.

===New Media dialog===
[[File:NewMediaEditor-dialog-example-50.png|right|thumb|450px|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} New Media Editor - dialog - example showing Media properties]]

The top section presents a thumbnail preview of the media object if available, along with a summary of its properties (ID, Date, Path and object type) that you can view and edit. You can type this information directly into the corresponding fields. For the Date, you can also enter information by clicking the {{man button|Invoke date editor}} button to invoke the '''{{man label|Date selection}}''' dialog.

* A descriptive {{man label|Title:}} for this media object.
* The {{man label|ID:}} is an unique record to identify the media object, leave blank to have it generated by Gramps.
** Privacy toggle for this media object {{man label|Record is public}}(default) or {{man label|Record is private}}
* {{man label|Date:}} a date associated with the media object eg: for a picture it could be the date it was taken.
** {{man button|Invoke date editor}} button to invoke the '''{{man label|Date selection}}''' dialog.
* {{man label|Path:}} of the media object on your computer. Gramps does not store the media internally, it only stores the path! Set the [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#Preferences|Relative Path]] in the Preferences > General tab's {{man label|Base path for relative media paths:}} entry to avoid retyping the common base directory where all your media is stored. The [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Tools#Media_Manager|Media Manager]] tool can help managing paths of a collection of media objects.
** {{man button|Open File Browser to select a media file on your computer.}} button.
* {{man button|Edit the Tag list}} button.

The bottom part of the window has {{man button|Help}}, {{man button|Cancel}} and {{man button|OK}} buttons. Clicking {{man button|OK}} will apply all the changes made in all tabs and close the dialog window. Clicking the {{man button|Cancel}} button will close the window without applying any changes. Pressing the {{man button|Help}} button will bring you here.

{{man note|Note|Every media object is referred to by its Path. The user is responsible for keeping track of the object files. Gramps will only reference and display the contents, not manage the files themselves.}}

{{man note|1=Note|2=Clicking {{man button|OK}} will immediately save changes to the database (write on disk). All changes are immediate.}}

===New Media tab pages ===
{{man tip|Tip|If a tab label is in '''boldface''' type, this means it contains data. If not, it has no data.}}

The tabs represent the following categories of media data:

====Source Citations====
{{stub}}

====Attributes====

The {{man label|Attributes}} tab lets you view and edit particular information about the media object that can be expressed as Attributes. The bottom part displays the list of all such attributes stored in the database. The top part shows the details of the currently selected attribute in the list (if any). The buttons {{man button|+}} , {{man button|Edit}} , and {{man button|-}} let you add, modify, or remove an attribute. Note that the {{man button|Edit}} and {{man button|-}} buttons become available only when an attribute is selected from the list.

====Notes====

The {{man label|Note}} tab provides a place to record various information about the source that does not fit neatly into other categories. This area is particularly useful for recording information that does not naturally fit into the "Parameter/Value" pairs available to Attributes. To add a note or modify existing notes simply edit the text in the text entry field.

====References====

The {{man label|References}} tab indicates any database records that refer to a given media object. The list can be ordered according to any of its column headings: {{man label|Type}} , {{man label|ID}} , or {{man label|Name}}. Double-clicking an entry allows you to view and edit the corresponding record.

{{man note|1=Note|2=Only primary objects can be shown in the {{man label|References}} tab: Person, Family, Event, Source, or Place. The secondary objects such as Names and Attributes, although able to refer the media object, will only show up through their primary objects to which they belong.}}

===New Source tab pages===
The tabs provide the following information categories of source data:

====Notes====

:The {{man label|Notes}} tab provides a place to record notes or comments about the source. To add a note or modify existing notes simply edit the text in the text entry field. Only primary objects can be shown in the {{man label|References}} tab: Person, Family, Event, Place, or Media object. Secondary objects such as Names and Attributes can only be accessed through the primary objects to which they belong.

====Gallery====

:The {{man label|Gallery}} tab lets you store and display photos and other media objects associated with a given source (for example, a photo of a birth certificate). The central part of the window lists all such objects and gives you a thumbnail preview of image files. Other objects such as audio files, movie files, etc., are represented by a generic Gramps icon. The buttons {{man button|+}} , {{man button|Select}} , {{man button|Edit}} , and {{man button|-}} let you add a new image, add a reference to an existing image, modify an existing image, and remove a media object's link to the relationship. Note that the {{man button|Edit}} and {{man button|-}} buttons become available only when a media object is selected from the list.

====Attributes====

:The {{man label|Attributes}} tab displays "Key/Value" pairs that may be associated with the source. These are similar to the "Attributes" used for other types of Gramps records. The difference between these Key/Value pairs and Attributes is that Attributes may have source references and notes, while Key/Value data may not.

:The central part of the window lists all existing Key/Value pairs. The buttons {{man button|+}} and {{man button|-}} let you add and remove pairs. To modify the text of Key or Value, first select the desired entry. Then click in either the Key or Value cell of that entry and type your text.

== Editing source citations ==

Citations connect a Source to another object and allow you to provide additional information about the source. Citations can be attached to a large number of objects,
* [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Editing_information_about_people|People and various information about people]] (such as their name, address etc),
* [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Editing_information_about_relationships|Relationships (Families) and various information about relationships]],
* [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Editing_information_about_events|Events and various information about events]],
* [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Editing_information_about_media_objects|Media objects and attributes of media objects]],
* [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Editing_information_about_places|Places and various information about places]],
* [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Editing_information_about_repositories|Addresses of repositories]].

For each object, a common set of buttons are provided:
* {{icon|stock_add}} {{man button|+}} (Create and add a new citation and a new source). This brings up an empty Citation dialog.
* {{icon|share}} {{man button|Add}} (Add an existing citation or source). This brings up the Source or Citation selection dialog box.
* {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}} (Edit the selected citation). This brings up the Citation dialog pre-populated with the Citation and source information.
* {{icon|stock_remove}} {{man button|-}} (Remove the existing citation). This removes the citation from the object. It does not delete the citation itself, which could then be connected to another object.

Note that the {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}} and {{icon|stock_remove}} {{man button|-}} buttons become available only when a citation has been selected.

=== Select Source or Citation selector===

[[File:SelectSourceOrCitation-SelectorDialog-example-50.png|thumb|450px|right|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Select Source or Citation - Selector Dialog - example]]

When {{icon|stock_add}} {{man button|Add}} adding an existing citation or source, the {{man label|Select Source or Citation}} dialog appears

This allows either an existing source or an existing citation (along with its associated source) to be selected. Click on the disclosure triangle alongside a source to see the citations associated with that source. For example, if one of your sources were a book, then the citations would normally refer to a page (or pages) within the book. If you already have a citation that refer to the particular page of the book, then you could select that citation which would then be shared. On the other hand, if this object needs to refer to a new page, then you would select the source and in the subsequent dialog enter the new page.

Use the search field to {{man button|Find}} a source or citation based on one of the following:
* '''Source: Title or Citation: Volume/Page contains'''(default)
* Source: Title or Citation: Volume/Page does not contain
* ID contains
* ID does not contain
* Last Change contains
* Last Change does not contain

Once you have selected a citation or a source, or if you had chosen the {{icon|stock_add}} {{man button|+}} or {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}} buttons, then the {{man label|New Citation}} dialog appears.

The {{man label|New Citation}} dialog includes one section called {{man label|Citation information}}.
{{-}}
====Citation information====
The {{man label|Citation information}} section indicates the details associated with the particular reference to this Source: {{man label|Confidence}}, {{man label|Volume/Page}}, {{man label|Date}}, and {{man label|Notes}}. You can choose the Confidence level from the {{man label|Confidence}} drop-down menu. The remaining details can be typed in the corresponding text entry fields.

*{{man label|Date:}} Date associated with this source reference. Typically used to store the date that the data was entered into the original source document (not the date when the event occurred).
*{{man label|ID:}}
*{{man label|Volume/Page}}: Specific location with in the information referenced. For a published work, this could include the volume of a multi-volume work and the page number(s). For a periodical, it could include volume, issue, and page numbers. For a newspaper, it could include a column number and page number. For an unpublished source, this could be a sheet number, page number, frame number, etc. A census record might have a line number or dwelling and family numbers in addition to the page number.
*{{man label|Confidence}}: Conveys the submitter's quantitative evaluation of the credibility of a piece of information, based upon its supporting evidence. It is not intended to eliminate the receiver's need to evaluate the evidence for themselves.
**Very Low = Unreliable evidence or estimated data.
**Low = Questionable reliability of evidence (interviews, census, oral genealogies, or potential for bias for example, an autobiography).
**High = Secondary evidence, data officially recorded sometime after event.
**Very High = Direct and primary evidence used, or by dominance of the evidence.

;A warning icon {{icon|stock_warn}} is displayed if the citation is shared.

=====Citation information section tab pages=====
The tabs provide the following information categories of citation data:

======Note======

The {{man label|Note}} tab provides a place to record notes or comments about the citation. The central part of the window lists all notes for this citation, and gives you a preview of the beginning of the note. The buttons {{icon|stock_add}} {{man button|+}}, {{icon|share}} {{man button|Add}}, {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}}, {{icon|stock_remove}} {{man button|-}}, {{icon|stock_go_up}} {{man button|Up}} and {{icon|stock_go_down}} {{man button|Down}} let you add a new note, share the selected note, edit the selected note, remove the selected note and move the selected note up or down the list of notes. Note that the {{icon|share}} {{man button|Add}}, {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}}, {{icon|stock_remove}} {{man button|-}}, {{icon|stock_go_up}} {{man button|Up}} and {{icon|stock_go_down}} {{man button|Down}} buttons become available only when a media object is selected from the list. Removing a note only removes the note from this citation, it does not delete the note itself. Please refer to [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Editing_information_about_notes|details on editing notes]].

======Gallery======

The {{man label|Gallery}} tab lets you store and display photos and other media objects associated with a given citation (for example, a photo of a page of a book or a page of a census). The central part of the window lists all such objects and gives you a thumbnail preview of image files. Other objects such as audio files, movie files, etc., are represented by a generic Gramps icon. The buttons {{icon|stock_add}} {{man button|+}}, {{icon|share}} {{man button|Add}}, {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}} and {{icon|stock_remove}} {{man button|-}} let you add a new image, add a reference to an existing image, modify an existing image, and remove a media object's link to the citation. Note that the {{man button|Edit}} and {{man button|-}} buttons become available only when a media object is selected from the list. Please refer to [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Editing_media_object_references|details on editing media references]].

======Attributes======

The {{man label|Attributes}} tab displays "Key/Value" pairs that may be associated with the citation. These are similar to the "Attributes" used for other types of Gramps records. The difference between these Key/Value pairs and Attributes is that Attributes may have source citations and notes, while Key/Value data may not.

The central part of the window lists all existing Key/Value pairs. The buttons {{icon|stock_add}} {{man button|+}} and {{icon|stock_remove}} {{man button|-}} let you add and remove pairs. To modify the text of Key or Value, first select the desired entry. Then press the {{icon|stock_edit}} {{man button|Edit}} button to select the Key, or click in either the Key or Value cell of that entry and type your text. When you are done, click outside the cell to exit editing mode.

======References======

The {{man label|References}} tab lists all the database records that refer to this source, if any. The list can be ordered by any of its column headings: {{man label|Type}} , {{man label|ID}} , or {{man label|Name}}. Double-clicking an entry allows you to view and edit the record.

==== Note tab ====

The {{man label|Note}} tab is the place for adding notes to one of your people, sources, etc. The tab allows you to order your notes in the order you want to see them. As on the other tabs, you can add new notes, share existing notes with the object you are working on and remove notes from this object (this does ''not'' remove the note from the family tree. It is present in the note view afterward).

The Note tab has the following elements
:* A toolbar to apply styles to your notes. You can select and apply one of the toolbuttons, or set the values as you want and start typing.
::* Italic : common function known from text editors
::* Bold : common function known from text editors
::* Underline : common function known from text editors
::* Undo : Undoes last action.
::* Redo : Re-applies last action.
::* Font selection drop down list: a basic font selector showing all fonts installed on your operating system.

{{man tip|Important|If you want to revert to a previous version of a note after you save it, there is an Undo/Redo feature for notes (just like other items). Go to {{man menu|menu -> Redo, Undo, or Undo History}}.}}

:* A context menu on the textview.
:: The most important entry in this context menu is the spell selection. You are offered a selection of installed languages on your system with spell checking enabled.

:* The text view where you can write your note

:* Some properties of your note
::* {{man label|Preformatted}} checkbox: Notes in Gramps are considered flowed for beautiful presentation in the reports. In this setting, newlines and white spaces will be automatically ignored so as to form complete paragraphs, which are defined by an empty line between two textblocks. When {{man label|Preformatted}} is checked, Gramps will assume the whitespace and enters you used in the notes are important. Use this for tables, literal transcripts, ... . Use monospace font to keep preformatting. Try not to use preformatted if you do not need it, the reports you create will be more beautiful.
::* {{man button|Make public/private}} Privacy on the other objects, you can indicate a note as private so as to make sure you can remove this note from all output Gramps creates with one easy click.
::* {{man label|ID:}} a unique id for the note. If left blank an automatic id will be chosen according to the settings in the preferences
::* {{man label|Type:}} (<code>General</code> default) The note type. You can add your own value by typing it
::* {{man label|Tags:}} Select a Tag for the note: Complete, Todo etc... You can add your own Tags by typing it

{{man tip|HTML links|If you add links to webpages with the full address in a note, the link will turn blue and underlined when you hover your mouse over the text. Clicking the link opens the webpage in your default browser.}}

===== Link Editor =====
[[File:NoteLinkingHints.png|thumb|right|235px|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Notes Editor - Linking text]]{{man tip| 1=When the Link button does not respond |2=A block of Note text must be highlighted for the Link Editor to be active.

=== Note markup and preformat in reports ===

Markup like '''bold''', color, <u>underline</u>, ... can be added to notes. A note can be preformatted or not. It depends on the output type how this markup will appear. Here an overview is given of what you can expect.

* '''Pdf''' and '''direct print''' (to printer or to file) fully support the markup and the preformatted setting
* '''ascii''' print removes all markup from the notes for obvious reasons
* '''LaTeX''' output interprets the markup to its best of possibilities. LaTeX is not well suited as a typesetting language to add custom style. That would break the benefits LaTex offers. Hence, the following is done:
:* '''bold''', <u>underline</u> and ''italic'' is supported
:* fontsize is mapped to the size indicators of LaTeX in a fuzzy manner
:* mono fonts are shown as a mono spaced font
:* color and font is not supported
:* preformatted is handled correctly
* '''Narrative Web'''. Many people use the Narrative Web report as an easy way to work with their data. This report is trying to respect markup in the notes. This is an interpreted translation, it is not one-to-one.
* '''ODF''' output does not support markup at the moment.
* '''RTF''' output does not support markup at the moment.
* '''html''' output does not support markup at the moment.

{{man tip|Note markup and preformat in reports|Use markup in notes only in those cases it adds to the information stored. '''Gramps is not a text editor.'''}}
