How do I add twins/triplets/etc?: Rules for finding Twins
Take for example, the twins Thomas and Peter. When you create the Birth event for Thomas, make the {{man label|Description}} say "twin births of Thomas and Peter". Then add a reference to that same event to Peter's event list, either by ''[ drag and drop]'', or by using the {{man button|Share an existing event}} button. Then set the shared Role to Primary. {{man tip|Manually set Roles for shared Events|It is important to set the {{man label|Role}} for shared events. When adding a new Event to a Person, Gramps assumes the person will play a primary Role and guesses that by default. However, the Role cannot be guessed for shared Events and defaults to "''Unknown''".}}
Now when you view the event list for either Thomas or Peter, you will see the {{man label|Description}} reminding you that they are twins. And as you add details (such as birth date or place) to the birth event for either of them, those details will automatically display for the other as well.
You can search for shared births by using a custom filter with the Events [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Events_Category_2|General rules]] ''Events with the particular type'' (where the type is ''birth'') in combination with ''Events with a reference count of <count>'' (where count is greater than 1) and where all rules apply. You can also use the '''Families with twins''' rule in a Family custom filter.
