Suggested improvements for FTM 2012

Classification: Query
From a new user - so if there is already a way to do these, please enlighten:

1) Let me see in my list of hints all hints, even if I have already merged them into my tree. I understand that if my tree were uploaded to the site (it is not) there is a way to view already accepted hints. I'd like to do that in FTM 2012 too.

2) In an source listing for an imported piece of information, name the merged trees something other than "Public Member Tree". If I have more than one listed as a source on the Person detail, I'd like to be able to see easily what the name of the Public Tree was (without having to open the source and go out to the web to view the name of the tree).

3) Allow an import of the source from a member's tree, and source it that way. For example, if a member has already found the 1850 census image and has used it as a source for a Name datum, let me click to see that source and merge it into my tree. As it stands, merging that data just lists the source as from a Public Member Tree; if I could examine their source within the FTM software, I could more quickly see if I wanted to use the data or not, and if so, bring in the compelling source of information.

4) Let me tag a tree to ignore, but I want to be sure I could go back and untag it if I want (or view the ones I've tagged as ignore.) As it is, if I click the "Ignore Record" symbol next to the Merge button, it's gone forever. Some day I might want to go back and look at that tree after all.

Thanks! Fantastic software and website...
