* {{man label|Matches}} status. This small status block is located on the left side of the Gramplet, just below the 'Title' label. It indicates the number of matching places found when searching the local Places list or the GeoNames database. The status also indicates where the matches were found, either 'Local', or 'GeoNames'.
* {{man label|Search result places}} list. This area lists the found matches. The user should select the correct match for the place under investigation, and either press the {{man button|Select}} or double-click, press 'Enter' or 'Space' to move to the result/edit screen.
:: There are two columns in this list, the names, and the 'Types' columns. The names are comma separated places in the hierarchy, as found in the local database, or in GeoNames. The 'Type' column in the Places view shows the Gramps Type, when showing places from the local database, and shows [https://www.geonames.org/export/codes.html GeoNames types Feature Codes] that includes a Feature class letter followed by a colon, then a type) when showing results from the GeoNames search.

If you check this setting, '[[Gramps_Glossary#administrative_division|Administrative Divisions]]' (countries, states, regions etc.) will be returned for a GeoNames search.
