"I have lots of complaints and enhancement requests about FTM, but I personally don't see much room for improvement in the area of settings"
Sorry silverfox, but I do see room for improvements on settings/report generation
I still think an improvement could be made so that a report/graph doesn't start generating untill the user tells it to start
As far as the settings go sometimes it is difficult to determine the exact settings that have been set ---even if you create a "template" and use that "template"
One example of an improvement could/would be to take some ideas from Legacy 7.5 in this area. That system has at least one additional feature over FTM 2012 ---You can also create settings templates, but you can call up a particular setting template and see the exact settings you have set for the template ---in FTM 2012 you can call up the "template" [which turns out to be the information in the right panel]and then you have to "guess" which of the items shown in the right panel are unique to that template/setting and which are generic to all templates/settings
I haven't had time to fully explore the templates in Legacy, but I will take some time and then I am contemplating sending in an enhancement request in this area
