Similar to "Not a problem list" with the Problem Search utility, it would be great to see this used for DataClean - NameClean and PlaceClean as well. It would facilitate going through thousands of entries to find the new problems, as opposed to continually going through them all everytime the utility is run. Add "Not a problem" list to both DataClean utilities.


As for Problem Search, proper order of events does not include sort order of children by birth dates as other genealogy programs do. With 40,000 individuals, I have to resort to importing a gedcom into another gen program to do much of the problem searching for date sorting of children as well as improper capitalization, too many periods, dashes, no periods after initals, illegal characters , and other types of errors made by associates when entering data...and then make the corrections in RootsMagi, before uploading to the web, A more robust problem search utility would be appreciated for those of us with large db's.


As there is nor search tool for places, the recently added Search Everywhere has been great in referring back to notes for places that have undergone numerous name changes throughout history.
