ENHANCEMENT REQUEST: Move Index Options from Tools to Index Button Bar

I made this request today:

http://ancestry.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_er4cyPjj5BJKIZf

There is a button bar at the top of the Index on the Family Tab of the People Workspace. It has two buttons:

1 - Go to Home person
2 - Select choice of columns for dates

There is then a section of choices for the index under Main Menu > Tools > Options > Names tab, which gives options for how names are to be presented or included in the index, giving choices for using married names for women, treatemnt of aka names, whether to use titles or not.

I request the Options at Tools > Options be moved to a button on the Index button bar. This button should "light up" if a choice is made there. It is "hidden" and out of the way for beginners - and choices made there can be forgotten. Having this option in the button bar is more convenient and would be more findable for more people who might miss these options altogether in the Tools > Options area. Having it "light up" would put a person on notice that they have selected one of those options.

I turn married names for women on and off repeatedly during a work session. It would be more convenient to have that option in the button bar than drill down through menus to find it.
