Author If a family line is completely hidden by another one, Problem Spotter doesn't catch it

I found this one by accident when I was fixing overlapping family issues in that big project I've been mentioning in my other bug reports. Apparently, if a shorter family line is completely covered by a longer family line on the same Y co-ordinate, Problem Spotter doesn't report it. Screenshots showing Problem Spotter's problem count and highlighted family lines follow; I gave each family line a different colour, and the only difference between the two screenshots is the Z position of the shorter family line (which I left selected when it was behind, to indicate that it is still present).

Note that the Problem Spotter's indicator is present in the first case, and absent in the second. I hope I'm not driving the developers crazy with these; just trying to help make the program better. Smile

The goal of the Problem Spotter was to find common problems without having to allocate too much development time.  I already have several ideas to improve the Problem Spotter of GenoProX.

I'm guessing that finding the completely-hidden family lines is a bigger job, then. Besides, a partially-overlapping family line is a bigger problem, especially if the family is moved, because then child lines might get re-routed as a result of the overlap, if the overlapping families share a spouse. I've dealt with my share of those before I had the Problem Spotter to help me find them. Smile
