This may be an old-nonissue but I found it to be useful in past versions of the software. I could enter a given name and a surname (either married or birth) and the program would look through the database and show all the hits on that search. Has this been discontinued?

Click the looking glass in the Toolbar to do a search, and there are five tabs - Prior, Find, NameFind, Next, and Record. The one you want is NameFind.
