This is something that I would have loved to see done several versions ago, but I'm guessing that there were reasons why it hasn't been done up to this point.

Clicking on a row in the list of a family's children should select that person in the GenoMap. Sometimes, especially in large trees and families with large numbers of children, children can end up widely separated from their parents.

I love the suggestion.  I was thinking of adding it to GenoPro 2016, however I am a bit afraid of the side effects.  One thing I want to add in the future is an icon "locate" which will find and select the best object related to another object.  This will be useful with the Problem Spotter for a record which has no visible component, such as a birth record.  Typically a birth record (which is hidden) is associated with an individual (which may appear on one or many GenoMap).

I love the idea of the "Locate" icon too... and if you're afraid of the side effects of the original idea, I'm not sure I want to know what they are... but my curiosity has always won out in the past. Smile While we're talking about finding things, having a "replace" option in the text search would be very nice. Normally it's not something that would be necessary in a genealogy program because of the nature of the data, but being able to correct all instances of a misspelled family name without repeated "Paste" operations would probably make life easier for a few of us... although I'm hoping I have found and corrected all such errors in my genealogies.

Edit: Another related thing that occurs to me: If the children get linked in the family properties, it seems to me to make sense to hyperlink the list of children in the individual properties too... I guess the question there is, are the side effects going to be better or worse if you do both? Smile

Definitly would like to see this option. Sometimes you need to scroll alng so many brothers and sisters before you get to the right one. And they all have families of there own so its quit a teadious thing to do. Please look into this
