Download and Install Grapevine
The website where you can download grapevine is below:
S T E P 2
Navigate to the Installation Folder
Once you've installed the program, navigate to the installation folder. If you've left it as default, it will be something like: C:\Program Files\Grapevine, but if you installed it on a 64-bit system, it would be in Program Files(x86) instead. This is the folder where your new menus will go.

Replace Your Grapevine Menu File
Next, go back up to the original Grapevine Menu file located in the Installation folder (that
you've navigated to in the above step). In the installation folder, you will see a file named:
Grapevine Menus.gvm. This file is a collection of menu items - all of the things that you pick from
when you add anything to a character sheet.
S T E P 4
Replace Your Stock RTF Templates
Templates control what the result looks like when you use Grapevine to produce any kind of output,
whether that output is a Vampire Character sheet, a sign-in sheet for the game (listing of characters and XP),
or a report on which characters have what merits and flaws. We have included several of our customized
RTF templates to replace the "stock" ones that come with Grapevine. These replacements are specifically
optimized for viewing on mobile devices (like iPhone or Android).
