I create and select further research Named Groups mainly by marking individuals through Data Field Selection and then making my comparisons and required edits.

 

Whilst People View is useful it has to be constantly rejigged to show the required data, I would prefer to do this in RM Explorer where all data is readily visible and can be easily edited. So I would like to see an option to restrict the scope of RM Explorer to a Named Group selection for that very purpose.

Gets my vote. RM Explorer could be a main View and Alt-R (RIN search) could work for all Views along with Group filters for applicable ones.

Goes without saying I use it a lot and have wished for the ability to create more custom tabs with their own layout akin to People View.

 

If a Details Tab, mimicking RM Explorer display, was added to the main view and the Sidebar added Death Date display as an option then it would be covered as long as adding to QuickGroups was also facilitated.

 

Its amazing how many new to Rootsmagic have not yet found RM Explorer so maybe a new tab on the main view would benefit many.
