As I've been using the 2016 version and the Problem Spotter, one thing that comes to mind as being extremely useful is having the X and Y coordinates of the object visible in the Problem Spotter window. Yes, position information is accessible by selecting a problem object, but only for the object selected. This would be particularly useful in cases of overlapping family lines, when the problem is several shorter families overlapping one long family line... because the easier fix in this situation is likely to be moving the single long line. As I'm typing this, the subject matter is sounding familiar; apologies if I've already raised this issue, but I guess that just indicates how frequently such issues come up for me. I routinely deal with genograms containing thousands of individuals, so overlap errors were by far the largest category I had to deal with when I first installed 2016. Now it's birth order... and birth order display problems are impossible to resolve in many cases without making the genogram look awful.

Another situation in which this is useful is when rearranging a large and complex genogram to eliminate display errors, in particular "child above" or "parent below" family line problems. I have started at the top and am working my way down generation by generation, but I'm halfway down now and errors are starting to creep back into what I've already done. If I had position information available in the Problem Spotter list view, I could see at a glance which errors are where, because I have a vertical gap of approximately 5000 units between what I've fixed and what I still have yet to do. For a genogram this large and complex, it was the only way to do this.
