Could the Help:Glossary  webpage link be added to the Learning_How_to_Use_WikiTree section of the Help:How_to_Use_WikiTree webpage?

If there is a Gossary of Icons, that would be incredibly helpful to be able to find too!  There are a lot of feature subtleties that I may have missed since I don't know the feature name to search in the Help .

(Like.... I haven't discovered the difference between the red and blue right-pointing-triangles in the pedigree view )
Red and Blue right-pointing arrows simply mean if you click on one you will be taken to the next generation back on the family tree. Red for female line, blue for male line.
Thanks Shirley. I appreciate the clarity.

The 'disconnect' from viewing the results (a pedigree containing about 16 people with dates & places) from clicking one icon, clicking 'back' in the browser, re-expanding the ANCESTORS, scrolling back to the find the same ancestor, clicking the other icon, & then reviewing the results (another pedigree grouping) is too much stuff to keep track of.

These are just a example of why a visual guide would be helpful.  Your reply was concise but I doubt anyone will be able to find it if searching these forums.

Another example is that there appearing to be multiple 'descendant chart' icons .There is a left and right facing version. But I noticed 1 has the parent along the top to one side of the branching.  The other is centered.  Would that indicate descendants will be represented differently? Or maybe it's just artistic license in the icon design.
