What do ‘I’ want…..



a better GUI and navigation framework




characters shared between projects with ‘versions’


maintained as appropriate for various projects [835.1]




links to ontology (term coordination)




character state images in columns versus rows (instant visibility)




layers in MX over MorphBank images for placing notations




transfer of metadata from MorphBank (taxon, views, etc.)




batch coding (adding uniform states, or deleting states)





permanence
