How should Gramps ID be added?
==How should Gramps ID be added?==
Under "G" or "I"? Gramps ID [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#ID_Formats]] [[User:GulliblePangolin|GulliblePangolin]] ([[User talk:GulliblePangolin|talk]]) 00:12, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
Under 'ID', I would expect. The word 'Gramps' before ID was a later refinement to the Keybindings page. It was added because that page covered both Gramps and OS keyboard shortcuts. So the ambiguity of whether the ID was OS-related or Gramps-related had to be addressed.
The Gramps Glossary ought to be GRAMPS only terminology... so the ID glossary term doesn't need the additional level of disambiguation. (Some of the terms should be moved from the Gramps Glossary to the [[Genealogy_Glossary|Genealogy Glossary]]
The messy part is that there are separate ID sets for each category's objects. And that the system allows custom IDs via import or manual entry. See [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Tools#Reorder_Gramps_ID|reorder Gramps ID]] or [[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Reports_-_part_5#Graphs|non-standard IDs]]
I'd probably only link the 'ID' in the Keybindings page instead of 'Gramps ID' compound term. That would implicitly reinforce that the important element is the 'ID' and the Gramps is only a disambiguation.
