I am using RM for Mac. I would like to be able to copy the FamilySearch ID number from the People list. It would be even better if clicking on the FS ID number in the people list would open a pop-up where I could choose to view the person on FAmilySearch or copy the ID to the clipboard. 



I have over 1000 people that I have added to FamilySearch from microfilm records before the birth/marriage/death documents were available on FamilySearch. It takes too many steps to get to the person in FamilySearch from the person in RM.

There are two locations where you can copy the FamilySearch ID. 


1. Open the Edit Person screen and go to Options>Put FamilySearch ID on clipboard. You can then paste it where needed.

2. On the FamilySearch Person Tools under Share Data is the copy icon to the right of the FamilySearch panel header.


The other items are on the enhancement request list.
