Subject:PAF 5 GEDCOM import question

I am in the process of evaluating PAF 5, and the following "feature" looks buggy to me:

I would expect that after importing the GEDCOM file, a list of all the imported "Places" would appear in the drop-down arrow box for reuse. Though, this list is empty.

By creating a new empty PAF file, and populating it with new individuals, the places are now added to the list. By opening again the first database, only the places types in the second one will appear.

Question: Is there any way to teach PAF5 to recognise placed imported from a GEDCOM file ?

Thanks in advance,
