When the very welcome Place Details were introduced in RM4 the one item I missed and have continued to miss is the PRINT button to report all the events associated at a Place Details. Depending on how users record their Place Details this might be all the burials in a particular grave, all the events in a particular Street address or all those events which took place in a particular Church.

The Proximity reporting enhancement was a welcome addition although it takes it's centre from the actual Place and not a particular latitude and longitude as I would like. The other slight problem is even if a PRINT button was introduced to report events associated with Place Details I record Street addresses with the house number as a suffix for sorting reasons so I thought the option to Multi-select all those addresses would be a good option for reporting, see the graphic. If that were made possible I could not only select all those house numbers in a particular Street but also adjoining Streets and maybe the local school.

I do, at least hope some better reporting options are introduced for Place Details in a future upgrade which I am sure will increase their popularity with users.
