Descendant view: expandable/collapsible branches

12 March 2013 - 04:18 PM

Would be nice of the Descendant view would allow me to display 4 generations, but with collpasible/expandable branches. At the moment, I display 4 generations to hide all the children and grandchildren. But then I want to focus on one branch.

So I click on a person in Generation 4, but I can't see a way to either (a) "expand their branch", (B) re-display the pedigree view, making the person in Generation 4, as the person main descendant © Navigating "down" the tree.

Clicking the Generation Number slider (a) means moving away from the person in question (B) loses focus, and it is difficult find the person you are interested in.

It is great that the Descendant View has red arrows to allow you to go "up" the tree, but it is missing a way to go "down".

Hourglass view

I'd like the see the option to change the Pedigree view to an Hourglass View, so that I can see more than one sibling.

Of course I'd like the ability to change font (and box) size, and to drag the view around the screen!

Family tab improvements

02 March 2013 - 09:18 AM

I'd like to see the Family Tab on the left:

1. Show a little more information for each individual, such as year of birth and death, and spouse.
2. Clicking a name is equivalent to "Go"
3. An "edit person" icon next to each name

Better navigation

02 March 2013 - 09:07 AM

When I have a parent selected, I want to be able to change the selected child by simplying right-clicking on the parent, and chosing the displayed child from a drop-down menu. (Likewise selected the parent's sibling, or other spouses). At the moment, I have to:
  • Move over to the family tab (if it is not selected)
  • Move down to Spouses and Children, and select my father's brother
  • Move up to the Go button. But now I lose my grandson, so I have to
  • Click the red arrow to the left of my father's brother.

Alternatively in the Pedigree view, I'd like to see "Hover icons" next to each name that shows pop-ups when I move the cursor over them, for:
  • Selecting Spouse and children
  • Selecting Parents and siblings
  • Showing the Person details

Pedigree navigation

26 February 2013 - 05:31 PM

Is there an easier way navigate a Pedigree tree? I'm showing the following with the paternal grandfather hightlighted:

**Grandfather**
		 Father
					 Grandmother
Grandson
					 Grandfather
		 Mother
					 Grandmother

Now, I want to change the display to show the father's brother, and his children. But I have to move the mouse to four(!) other areas of the screen:
  • Move over to the family tab (if it is not selected)
  • Move down to Spouses and Children, and select my father's brother
  • Move up to the Go button. But now I lose my grandson, so I have to
  • Click the red arrow to the left of my father's brother.
It would be much better if I could keep the cursor on the paternal grandfather, right-click, and choose the father's brother from the pop-up menu. And likewise other family members.
