I agree with the idea that some indicaion of the direct line would be nice, particularly when looking at other trees to which one has been given access.

I don't like the capitalisation idea though and would prefer some coloured item to indicate the direct line.

The Tree DOES have colour - blue for males pink for females.....! It is the colour of the shoulders of the male or female silhouette in each individual's box when you view your tree.

wasn't that done in the changes last year??

But so many people complained that it was removed??

Although I no longer have a tree on here, I do think that some colour could be injected into the tree ie Pink for female and Blue for male relatives.

I wonder if it would be possible to have the surnames of all direct relatives put in capital letters, as it would be much easier to move around the tree. I keep trying to do this myself, but the capitals do not seem to stay on the tree. Many thanks.
