This appendix lists keybindings (also known as ''Keyboard shortcuts'' or ''hotkeys'') that can be used in the Gramps dialogs as an alternative to using the mouse.
  
Some keybindings require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keybindings require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously. Keybindings may depend on the keyboard layout (localisation) and on your computer’s operating systems.

This appendix lists keybindings (also known as Keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys) that can be used in the Gramps dialogs as an alternative to using the mouse.

Some keybindings require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keybindings require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously.
