Checking Relationship. (ENH)

When I have added new names to my tree I like to check what my exact relationship is to them. I also like to check relationships between different people on my tree At the moment the only way is to scroll down bit by bit, a long winded method. Could we not have a facility where you can enter two names and find the relationship.

Presumably you know about the method of selecting one name then hovering over the second to see the relationship?

But as you say this is cumbersome. A means to enter two names would be helpful.

Can I suggest you add the tla ENH: (Enhancement) in front of you heading. This way your suggestion will show up a bit more clearly amongst the other stuff on here and might get noticed by GR staff.

Hello Inspector
I have altered the heading. I hope I have done what you suggested and I hope it might work.
