Tree problems - adding relations to a person

Adding relations to a person such as siblings, spouse or child.
This is still very difficult because the details text box is a fixed screen box and not a floating box (like the tree dashboard) which can be moved about by holding the left hand mouse tab down.

The computer screens in GR office are the large 21" so when it come the standard laptop and even the tablet some of the features don't work the same way.

To save the info one has to reduce the image to 90%

It is especially difficult if when trying to add a sibling or child where there are several partners. They are all listed under the details so in some cases the list is not even visible on the page.

Having reported the problem and have sent in snipped images of the various boxes I find it incomprehensible that after all this time it has still not been rectified.

Well thats my rant for the day Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Edit: Told suggestion not clear sorryo -
Change them to a floating text box

It IS a suggestion, but perhaps need to be re-worded a little.

.......This is still very difficult because the details text box is a fixed screen box and not a floating box (like the tree dashboard) which can be moved about by holding the left hand mouse tab down.

or in other words....

Please change the detail text box to be a floating rather than a fixed screen box as this should alleviate the problem with adding relations when using certain laptops or tablets with limited screen size because the functions are not always visible on screen..... etc etc
