[[File:Graph-View-addon-example-51.png|450px|thumb|right|Graph View - addon - In action showing both ancestors and descendant trees (Gramps 5.1.x version)]]
'''Graph View''' is an interactive {{icon|ance}} {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Charts_Category|Charts]]}} category view addon that presents a navigable ancestors and descendant tree using the current active person as a starting point. Clicking another person in the family tree will make that person the active person and will redraw the family tree based on them. 
== Usage ==
* {{man button|'''⏎''' (Go to active person)}}
* {{man button|Go to bookmark}} button - Center view on selected bookmark - also shows "Bookmarks for current graph:" (who are being display) and "Other Bookmarks:" (who are not being displayed) - along with two buttons to "Add active person" to bookmarks and "Edit" the bookmarks.
* {{man button|🔍 Search...}} - typing shows "Persons from current graph:" (who are being display) and "Other persons from the database:" (who are not being displayed) as well as any saved bookmarks. You can use <{{man button|Ctrl+F> }} to make search entry active.
* {{man button|Generations}} - setting to change the generations shown for Ancestor 3 generations by default and Descendants 10 generations by default.
* {{man button|Spacing}} - changes the vertical(5 default) and horizontal(2 default) spacing between the generations.
* {{man button|All connected}} - Show all connected persons limited by generation restrictions. Works slow, so don't set large generation values. ( Limited to 1000 persons, if your family tree has more than that you get the {{man label|Incomplete graph}} warning and only the first 1000 connected persons are drawn.)
==== On main Gramps Toolbar ====
On the main Gramps Toolbar you also have:
* {{man button|'''⎙'''(Print)}} button that does not print but instead allows you to save the currently displayed Graph into a dot format file for a later printing. This will save a .gv file and a svg file. You must select a .gv file. ([ Gramps Print -SVG does not show photo])
* {{man button|* (Configure Options)}} button with option shown in the next section.
