Suggestions for "Review Hint" Screen

Classification: Query
I am constantly having unexpected or undesired results from the "Review Record Hint" or "Review Member Tree Hints" screen.

For example, I have a relative who married twice. I selected a marriage record for his first marriage, but the hint screen will link the source to his second marriage. I would have had to add the fact as an Alternate. And when its a source that goes directly to an Ancestry page, like a Census record, or a marriage record, I cannot edit the source and relink it to the correct marriage fact.

It would be great if it could figure it out by the spouse's name, or ideally, allow the user to pick which fact to attach the source to. Or even allowing creating a new fact on this screen, and selecting from the same list of facts that are in the 'Add Fact' list?

Another perfect example, is an occupation listed on a Census form. I can add the fact in the Overview screen, but when reviewing the census record, I can't link the source to that Occupation fact.

Or maybe I am just missing how to do some of this and need to be directed to the appropriate help section.

Thanks!
