Doug:

I also agree with Peter and Nick!  So I would like to see it changed as well...

Nick in a personal email to me this morning, said that he is not having any free time for Gramps lately.  I would assume to do the Navigation Type change, but I guess that Nick should really speak for himself though!

The Navigation Type thing will that allow the gramplets to be in categories to separate their purpose or what they would be best to display them?

For example, I do not believe that the bottom bar gramplets should be allowed nowhere except for the bottom bar!

My gramplet, Image Metadata Gramplet, should only be allowed to be in the sidebar on the Media View...

Sincerely yours,
Rob G. Healey

Nick,

Should I add the Gramplet Navigation Type while I'm in there? Or have
you already started that?
