I'm confident the items you outline would be helpful for you and many others doing their genealogy research on FTM.
For one, I would have more basic suggestions. Such as having a program that does not crash after a short period of work.
Like many other users have previously documented on this Board, I have had numerous problems with every version from 2008 forward to 2012.
While each of the versions had problems that varied from the others, the result was always constant crashes that greatly hinder meaningful research.
Now, w/2012 I get one of three results after a short period of work; the program simply closes (crashes), a pop-up appears saying the program is out of memory, or red lines appear on the input form. The 2nd & 3rd in the list requires an immediate closing of the program or it will crash.
These happen after about 15 minutes of input or navigation.
I'm about past the point that I want to do much research because entering the data becomes an lengthy and frustrating experience.
So while all the thoughts and ideas expressed in this thread and elsewhere on this board are probably nice improvements to users, there are some users who would wish for a stable program that allows for enthusiastic research and data entry.
