3. The use of a find button to quickly enter duplicate place names (I still miss this with UFT).<<
I believe this feature does exist in the current version of TMG.
Put your cursor on the the first name of the place you would like to enter and hit the F2 key.The place list will popup.Begin to type the name of the place you want to enter and the highlight will move to that place.Hit the 'Enter' key and the entry will be made.
It works in a bit different manner than UFT but I think it is certainily as easy and quick to use.It has the advantage in that the place list will show 'detail, city, county, state, country' or 'city, county, state, country' or 'county, state, country' depending on which field the cursor was in when the F2 key was hit.
