I "Wish" when you are in the view of the Place list, when you select a place there you would be a link/field to show all the places that place is used..It would have to be broken down for the new Place details (I love that) currently listed. I know you can run a report and see this but just a quick link when working to clean up the place list would be nice.

I agree. You do know that the "Print" button on the Place List window takes you to the Place List report defaulted to report the events in the currently selected place? You can then generate the report, save it as a PDF or HTML or RTF or TXT and have it open by the appropriate reader in another window so that you can return to where you were in the Place List. Not quite as convenient as your wish but faster than exiting to the main menu to get to the report.

You have hit on my biggest wish and that is for a completely new Place UI incorporating all the RM Place features on one UI with an embedded map.

Whilst I am not a fan of FTM, I do admire their Place UI which contains your wish and I continue to hold out my wish for a complete makeover in RM7, you can view a quick video on how FTM handles Places through the link in my signature below.

I did not know abut the print button..I will try it..I tried to "Like" your post but I got an error message I exceeded my likes for today but this was my first. Vyger, I am not techie enough for your FTM and Place UI references but I am glad someone too wants this feature..and I hope RM7 is a way off..I just bought 6!

The Like Button does not work on the forum, you always get that same message.

If you look through Rootsmagic it has many more Place related features that FTM, my only problem is that these have become fragmented through program evolution and not so obvious to some users.

If you look at Tools > Mapping I would like to see a similar UI expanded to incorporate all Place & Place Details related management and this should include a "where used" panel.

My opinions and comparisons which are aimed at being constructive for future RM development and success are on the link below.
