ACOM, PLEASE address the inexplicable lack of text formatting (to include hyperlinking) in various aspects of your online software program. This anachronistic deficiency has been acknowledged ( http://boards.ancestry.com/topics.ancestry.membertree.member... ) yet uncorrected for YEARS.

PLEASE !

(Forum members, please consider adding your voice to this petition for basic text formatting capability)

Are you talking about Ancestry.com formatting in a particular site area? Or about user-input formatting?

Where on the site?

When adding a note to a profile on someone's tree, there isn't even any paragraph spacing possible. I've deleted my own carefully formatted notes when I've seen the mess they become once they are saved to the tree.

Ancestry are terribly keen for all their members to "connect" to each other but why bother when any note/text ends up being incomprehensible with the sentences all run together.

You have my vote.

Include in this petition the size limitation of the profile descriptions. Right now you are limited to 256 characters. I frequently like to make my notes longer, and I have to append the notes as comments, or attached stories, which is clumsy.

I agree. It's very hard to read those un formatted notes. I've put extra lines and carriage returns in them w/out realizing that they aren't retained and the text just streams in the window.
