Thank you, Paula!

(We didn't formally announce this: the automatic place name suggestions now appear when creating a new profile, adding or editing a marriage location, and other places. And, perhaps even better for many of us, the style note that pops-up about using place name suggestions can now be permanently dismissed.)

I noticed both of these but assumed I'd just been too busy to notice them before, so thanks for those two improvements, they are both very helpful.
I'm used to enter rather detailed place names, and Firefox's auto-completion enables me to to do this by entering a few letters. Now, that auto-completion doesn't work anymore, so I have to type the entire place name every time, or copy/paste it from somewhere else.

I understand that for many, the Auto Place Name Suggestion (APNS?) is a good thing, but I certainly don't feel that way. I thought it was a good compromise as long as the New Profile screen enabled me to use the browser auto-completion, while the Edit Profile screen had the APNS. Now I'm just frustrated by the whole thing.
Hi Leif. You should be able to disable them completely.
