Is there an easy way of editing place settings to remove extra commas or change a township to an abbreviation?  Also, if I make a change in a place in list of places will the changed place automatically show in all the ancestors who have the original place?

1 - You can do this:

   Search > Search and Replace > [Places} and enter what you wish to change in the two boxes


2 - Yes, if you edit a Place List entry, it will affect every fact/event referencing that Place List entry

Go to Tools>DataClean>PlaceClean to control the spacing and commas. I would use the Lists>Place List to change the place names.
