I just had an idea re: family line visual properties. I suspect (from what I have read elsewhere here) that GenoProX will support changing visual properties of multiple lines at once. I thought that maybe an option could be added to streamline this process further. What about a checkbox (because users might not always want it enabled) to automatically change parent and child (biological only) connectors to the colour of the family line (poss. unspecified / marriage only) when that is changed?

An alternative would be to make it easier to select vertical lines in groups. As it is now, the only way to select vertical lines is to click on them directly (requiring somewhat more precision than some of us have on some days) or to enclose both ends of the line in the selected area (which also selects the individual attached, 99.99% of the time). I would love to be able to select vertical lines the same way as horizontal lines, by just including the centre point in the selection area.

On a related note, speaking of selections, I think I've already mentioned this elsewhere, but the priority order for selecting objects really needs to be according to what's on top, regardless of what kind of object it is. I've lost track of the number of times I've tried to select an individual, only to select an unrelated family line crossing behind it.
