I am searching a bit for the proper terminology. People Mode, person tab, notes portion on bottom part of the viewed page. Ordinarily if there is more text than that you can see in the viewing section, there will be a slide bar on the right that you can move (either up or down) with the mouse in order to see the text beyond the window. This is a common feature in all text editors or viewers and not unique to FTM.
However in both FTM 2011 and 2012, this slide bar is sometimes missing. If missing, the only thing one can do is to plant the cursor somewhere in the text window and use the keyboard up & down arrows and/or the PgUp and PgDn keys.
No big deal, but it is another annoying bug that has not been fixed even in the new version.
Maybe I am the only one experiencing this or maybe there is some secret method to overcome this that I don't know about.
