I'd like the see the option to change the Pedigree view to an Hourglass View, so that I can see more than one sibling.

Of course I'd like the ability to change font (and box) size, and to drag the view around the screen!

This is a good suggestion, but I think there would still be a need for the standard Pedigree view to be available.

Absolutely, no question about keeping the Pedigree view.

I'd also like to see a printable hourglass chart.

A top to bottom hourglass chart is difficult to make - and hard to follow the generation lines, but left to right is easy. Create an ancestor chart and a descendant chart for the same person. Then enlarge the canvas width of the ancestor chart and copy the descendant chart on the right side. Delete one set of the focus person/spouse boxes and join the two charts. Highlighting the focus person can make it a bit easier to follow. There is a small example chart (letter-landscape size) here, Ask if you have any questions.

Confirming enhancement requests are in our tracking system.

If you only want to see more than one sibling try the descendant view to get a picture of the family.
