I have read in a post from some family tree developer that family tree maker takes inputs from customers in decided what to offer. This seems reasonable to me when ADDING features but quite unreasonable when SUBTRACTING features. If it is working we don't tend to ask for something that is already there. Case in point, birth order of children. Some people apparently asked for being able to place the children in any order they wanted. But why did that necessitate taking away the ability to globally sort children by birth order, which is the correct way anyway.
