Most GeneWeb commands are accessible through a keyboard shortcut. Note that some browsers may take precedence over GeneWeb and have their own shortcuts taking precedence over those of GeneWeb. Sometimes, the lowercase shortcut is superseeded, but the uppercase one remains active.

As for typing, uppercase is obtained by pressing simultaneously a letter and the Maj key. Le letter A is obtained by holding the keys Maj + a.

Raccourcis claviers

These shortcuts, defined in GeneWeb version 5.02 may not be active anymore with version 7.xx. To be verified!!

Note that Alt + A is equivalent to Alt + Maj + r.

  • Alt + R: Search for a path between individuals.
  • Alt + U: Update submenu.
    • Alt + F: Update family (only first relation).

    • Alt + A: Add family (mariage).

To allow for these direct shortcuts, one must have the cursor positioned in the empty box at the upper right (to the left of ?) as is the case when opening an personal page. Alt + Z positions the cursor on this box if it is not already there. positioning the mouse over this box will display a help menu.

These shortcuts are adjusted for the AZERTY keyboard layout, if they do not work to your liking with your browser, you may edit the file js_perso_accesskey.txt in folder gw/etc/templm/.
