Re: Should I Purchase UFT 3? New user

Bob F,
I, like others, are keeping an eye out for an alternative if our fears for UFT come true. After you have had a chance to really get into TMG, and find out what it's limitations are for you, could you tell us what features you like, don't like, and really miss? It would help to know what features of UFT (or Roots IV or V) that you used, so we could know how well your expience would map to our situation.
One feature that I use a lot in UFT that is missing in TMG is the predefined roles, any of which can be made into the principal role. TMG suggests only one role should be the pricipal one, and, while you can probably define special cases as they come up, it would be a real pain to have to do that repeatedly. (The prime example is a census event, where the head of household is not my ancestor and I want to make my ancestor or nearest relative "principal" so it will print on my usual reports. This also holds for other events where my ancestor or relative was not the main character of the event, such as a minor beneficiary of a will.)
