When marking groups

     --> Ancestors of Highlighted Person

            --> Ancestors and descendants of ancestors

The results include spouses of descendants.  I'd like to see a check box whether to include spouses or not.


When defining a group based on a query such as the above or any other conditional item, I'd like the group to dynamically update as new people are added to the dataset or people are edited to match the queried group.


Color schemes that are based on similar conditions should also be dynamically updated.


This would require a way of naming and saving the underlying condition(s), some perhaps requiring more than one step.


Example - MyPreferredColors might be based on people belonging to one of three groups.


Setting the groups might mean 4 queries:

1. identify all ancestors of an individual (ancestor group)

2. identify all descendants of all ancestors with spouses (spouse group)

3. identify spouses of ancestors who are not also ancestors (spouse group)

4. identify all descendants of all ancestors without spouses (descendants group)


Color Spouse group = color1

Color Descendant group = color2 

Color Ancestor group = color3


You might be able to bypass the named group by attaching the logic to the color scheme settings.


Additionally, more colors would be very helpful.


Thank you
