Display of Descendancy list

Swedish has a very precise way of identifying specific ancestors. The possessive is denoted by "s" without an apostrophe. "Mor" is mother, and "far" is father. Your maternal grandfather then is your "morfar" and his paternal grandfather would be your morfars farfar.

I used the descendancy list for my mormors far. There were 12 children in the family. I clicked the < for child 10 (mormor) and got a list of her children. Fine. I then clicked < for child 11, and got a list of her children. But the children of child 10 disappeared from the screen. It would be nice to see the cousins on the same screen, if possible.

I wonder if the programmers would consider something like the Windows Explorer type of tree, where a folder (<) stays open unless you close it. That would save a lot of clicking.
