Adding a child from the Family View: be more explicit in steps to populate a Family dialog with 'Existing' people
[[File:FamilyEditor-dialog-example-50.png|right|thumb|450px| Family Editor from Family view]]
If you wish to add a child to an existing family from the Family View, find the Family in the displayed list. You may either select the family by clicking on the {{icon|stock_edit}}{{man button|Edit}} button in the toolbar, or double-clicking on the family in the list. This will display the Edit Family form for this person. At this point, you may add the child.
If you wish to add a child to a new family (a family that does not yet exist in the database), click on the {{icon|stock_add}}{{man button|Add}} button on the toolbar. This will bring up an Edit Family form. On this form, you may add new parents and childrenwith the {{icon|stock_add}}{{man button|Add a new person as the father/mother}} buttons at the right of the labels for either parent or the {{icon|stock_add}}{{man button|Create a new person and add the child to the family}} button in toolbar below the Children tab.
To add an existing person to a blank spot, use the use the {{icon|share}}Share button in the appropriate section of the Family Editor dialog.
{{man tip| 1=Adding existing Persons more efficiently|2=To add existing Persons, you ''could'' use the {{icon|share}}Share buttons to find and select each, one by one. But when adding more than one existing person to a Family, it is more efficient to switch to the People view after using the {{icon|stock_add}}{{man button|Add a new family}} button in the Family View [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Main_Window#Toolbar|toolbar]]. You can find and drag each Person to the appropriate spot in the New Family dialog. This saves the time that the People Selector would need to populate the list for '''''each''''' added person. <br /><br />Using [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Navigation#Using_the_Clipboard|clipboard]] or the [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Gramplets#Session_Log|Session Log]] history can also use [ drag and drop] to improve the efficiency of adding recently accessed Persons.}}
