I was one of the testers for the new screen since before it was even part of the Billion Graves site and I love just about everything on the new transcription screen . . . there are a few glitches, but you can click on the Feedback button (along left edge) and report these. Sometimes things seem to work better on the US graves, than on the foreign entries - but as I said you can report them.
Auto capitalizations is great; carrying forward the last name is great; being able to tab for the dates is great; having the foreign characters readily available for the names is great (although I would like it if they were ordered so that the Capital was next to the lower case, rather than all capitals and then all lower cases). I love being able to personalize the short version to include just those fields that I normally enter. I like being able to click on previously entered headstones to merge them into the one I'm working on . . . although it seems BG will only accept ONE merge per headstone, even though there may be 3 matches. I like the bigger picture of the stone, and being able to filter to be able to get a better view of some of the bad stones.
I also use the CTRL function of Saving, Next Image, Add an Individual and Open Military Input - and find that using the keyboard instead of the mouse for these really speeds things up.
I have reported a number of glitches and some of them have been corrected already. And I'm also happy the marriage date has been moved - that was a nice improvement. I didn't like it where it was, but had not suggested that change . . . so I'm glad someone else did.
All in all, I think it is a great improvement . . . can always use some tweaking, but that is to be expected.
Kudos to the BG staff on their hard work!
