* At this point the tool window with three main panes and some buttons should be visible.
** The top pane will contain a list of the results of the search. If nothing appears here, then none of your families have unsorted children. Selecting a family from this list updates the data in the lower panes. It is also possible to sort this list for ID, Father, or Mother, using the header of the list.
** The {{man label|Current Sort}} pane (lower left pane side) will show the original unmodified list of children with their birth dates, if any. This cannot be changed.** The {{man label|Proposed Sort}} pane (lower right pane side) will show the proposed changes to the children sort. If the user wants to make additional changes, they can be made directly in the pane. Adjusting the sort manually can be done by selecting a child and using either the {{man button|Up}} or {{man button|Down}} buttons below the pane. When you are satisfied with the changes, if any, you can use the {{man button|Accept}} button to save the proposed sort order to the database.
* Many times, the user will not feel a need to make manual changes, the proposed sort order if acceptable. The tool offers two buttons that allow the user to accept some or all of the listed families.
** The {{man button|Accept All *}} button will accept all the families that have a '*' next to them. In these families all the children have valid birth dates so that sorting can be done unambiguously. When this button is used, a progress bar appears so that with large databases Gramps doesn't seem to be frozen.
