I would like to see the source entries between RootsMagic and FamilySearch exactly match each other. Right now the "boxed" entry between the two is usually different sizes. If you are adding many sources, it is very easy to miss putting in a source because the two columns are not identical - rather the boxes in the columns are not identical in size. It is a little thing but it is frustrating to me. The merge screen is a great example where the boxes between the original and the requested merge are the same size and across from one another.

I'm not sure if we can make things match up completely. On the RM side it shows what the citation are for the individual facts. On the FT side it will show tags to life events. Fact and Tags are handled differently between the programs. FamilySearch needs to make some serious changes to the sourcing area on FT for us to get everything over there the way we would like.
