FTM2012 - Places hint

While cleaning up my place names, to get them into the new hierarchical format, I was having screen issues. Moving from place to place, the screen would jump all around before I could get to where I wanted to go.

As it turns out, I was trying to get around too quickly. What I discovered is that IF I select the 'next' place first, then expand that location, for example, the screen worked quickly and smoothly.

For example: I want to look at my locations in California. In the past, I would just scroll down to USA and immediately click on the Right Pointing arrow to the left of USA. BUT if I first Select (hi-light) USA, THEN click on the Arrow, it works smoothly.

 I had not been selecting USA first.

After clicking on the Arrow, to expand California, again, it works much smoother.

I am showing that arrow above. Selecting California, then the arrow works.

Lesson Learned: Select First, then expand.
