The '''Type Cleanup Tool''' searches your database for records that contain "custom" Types, provides a filtered list allowing those records to be edited, and an option to delete or rename the custom type. Custom Types are recognized by Gramps but the various reports that Gramps can generate and other applications may not recognize or handle them.
==What causes the extra (Custom) Types?==
Custom types are created automatically by some importers, or other addons ([[
Form_Addons|Forms]], for example) to supplement the standard Gramps types.
They are also created manually by the user. Typing directly into the Type selector combo box allows the pattern matching to select from the built-in list. But entering a value not already present in that list will create a Custom Type and insert it into the Custom submenu.
