→What causes the extra (Custom) Types?
The '''Type Cleanup Tool''' searches your database for records that contain "custom" Types, provides a filtered list allowing those records to be edited, and an option to delete or rename the custom type. Custom Types are recognized by Gramps but the various reports that Gramps can generate and other applications may not recognize or handle them.
==What causes the extra (Custom) Types?==
Custom types are created by some importers, or other addons (Forms, for example) to supplement the standard Gramps types. They are also created directly by the user
if he types directly in the type selector combo box with a value not already present.
