POSIX - style systems: MacOS terminology
=== Mac OS X MacOS ===
On Apple Macs running OS X, filenames starting with "." do not show up in Finder. To simplify access to the Gramps user directory, open a terminal window using the Terminal application and type:
ln -s ~/.gramps ~/Documents/Gramps
which will make Finder show the directory as a folder in your Documents folder named "Gramps". (You can replace "Gramps" with whatever name you wish, but use a / before any spaces.) Alternatively you can simply click on [ {{man menu|Go -> 'Go to Folder...'}}] in the Finder, and type
in the resulting macOS {{man label|Go to the Folder}} dialog box.
====MacOS Application Package====
The [[Mac OS X:Application package]] uses a different, more MacOS-standard default location for the directory:
/Users/'''''<~username>'''''/Library/Application Support/gramps
