Oh, I will agree with that. UFT used a number for places, and it was so fast
to just type in the number. Having to go to the Detail field, hit Shift F2,
find the place in the list, and then choose ok is so time consuming when you
are doing it several hundred times. Since I am doing cemetery pictures, it
would be so nice to hit Alt+F3 and have the cemetery filled in, then I could
put in my sort date, save and move on. It would be nice if we could have a
third event automatically added when we add a new person as well. So we
could do birth, death, and say burial. It would also be nice from that
screen to be able to set the role as well. Would save opening the tag, and
setting the role after the tag had been created.
