Accidentally I have found gender errors in the tree -  two or three individuals  with females names are marked as males. Of course this is my errors...
Possible, there is way of searching for such errors by means of Problem Spotter?

GenoProX will have a better Problem Spotter, with the option to ignore certain problems.  Without this improvement, the 'gender errors' may create a lot of false positives.

At the moment, the focus is GenoProX so we may have a demo ASAP.  I just finished a complex undo/redo module to be connected with the collaboration.  I am starting the network collaboration.

This would definitely give you a lot of false positives, for example, my son's name is Sasha, but a lot of people have used that name for girls. It's one of the Russian Diminutives for Alexander, so there are a few 'Sasha's' in my file. There are a lot of names like this, Nikita is another one - again used as a girls' name (English speaking people seem to think that any name that ends in an 'a' is a girls name) - and Nikita is a Russian boys' name. 

I think it would serve better if you do a search on any names you're concerned about and check those, it might be better, and far less work for everyone with all the false positives I can imagine...

Alternately, the error checker has a function which tells you if two same-sex people have a genetic child, whereas this is technically possible (ie: IVF, with one of the donors being one of the parents), it's certainly going to be the exception, rather than the rule.

That brings me to one thing I did want to mention - it would be great if the error checker included the ability to mark something as 'checked as OK' or similar so that it doesn't continue to show up every time the error checker is used.

There's so much excitement to be read about in history - even just your own...

Except 'Sasha' there is else Russian Diminutive - 'Shura' (for boy and for girl)  Smile.
But we can not use 'Sasha' or 'Shura' in official  Russian documents ...
And in GenoPro we must write:
for boy - Alexander (Александр),
for girl - Alexandra (Александра).
