GenTle provides functionality for creating and editing of family trees and enables to enter information for persons and events. You can add a person, enter a lot of information about this person and create relations to another persons. You can do it in GenTle's main window.
To add a person, you can use appropriate tool-bar button, menu item or just use shortcut Alt-P. Individual Record dialog appears. It consists of several tabs; I will mention them in short.
General tab. Here you can specify general information about a person like name, surname, gender, death status etc.
Events tab. Here you can gather all events related to person. I will describe works with events later.
Personal Info tab. Here you can specify a lot of personal information with date and place related to this information.
Association tab. Here you can specify associations to other persons.
Duplication tab. Here you can specify that a person is duplicate of another person.
External ID tab. Specify IDs of persons from another systems here.
Evidence and Enrichment tabs. This tabs gather citations of resource where the person is mentioned.
Changed tab. Here you can specify changes done to the person's record.
If you are finished with editing information about person, press Ok button on Individual Record dialog. Dialog is closed and cursor changes its shape. This means you are expected to select location of persons rectangle. Do so and press left mouse button. Person's rectangle appears on canvas displaying some information about person. Color of rectangle depends on gender of a person you have specified. These colors are configurable (see section Settings for more information). Name of a person and date of birth and death will be also shown in person's rectangle, if specified. You can move person's rectangle by moving mouse whilst holding left button pressed. To edit person's data, double-click the person's rectangle with left mouse button.
