Need Horizontal Pedigree View, Need to improve current view when zoomed out.

When I look at the family tree of a DNA match, there is no way to get a quick look at their ancestry.  A horizontal pedigree view is essential for this.  And, when I zoom out to see the most tree displayed and to look at surnames, you show me only the first names!! Really?  It has been like this for so long and you still haven't fixed it.  Please get this fixed!! -Trina Haines

 NOT HELPFUL:

family tree 

 title=undefined

I made the very same suggestion here months ago, and have had several responses agreeing with me since then, but mine never got a response from MyHeritage like yours did.

 Perhaps there are other threads with the very same request as well.

Dear Mr. Wampler, 

Thank you for your message and your suggestions. 

I will make sure to forward your concerns to our developement team for further consideration. 

Please remember that our software handles very complex databases and provides many genealogy tools. Every service and feature that is released goes through months of testing.
 
Feature requests are prioritized according to how many users write to support about them and how much resources and time they require of the development team. Some features that might seem minor may actually be related to the infrastructure and require major changes that effect many other features.
 
However, I would like to assure you that both our DNA and developement teams are constantly working on improving our services and implementing new features. 
Meanwhile I would like to reccomend taking advantage of our "Ancestral Surnames" tool that you can learn more about >here<
 
In case you will have further suggestions or questions, please write us directly to support@myheritage.com.
 
Kind regards,
Masha
MyHeritage Team

MyHeritage is useless to me as long as it does not have a horizontal pedigree view like the Legacy genealogy program. Possibly their software could be used to create one for My Heritage since they now own Legacy! Did get Ancestry.com to do it and other sites.

This would be really helpful. It's so hard to look for surnames that I might share with a match when I'm trying to view their tree, especially if it's a large one. I've contacted customer service and asked about adding a pedigree view and the response I got was them telling my how to print my tree in pedigree view! This one tweak would make this site so much more usable.
