  6. Save a single article

    I have been reading for a couple of years that you hope to make it possible to save a single article instead of a whole page but I haven’t seen any progress in providing this, are you actually going to provide this option? it is why I let my subscription lapse, I would rejoin if this was sorted.

    The Search Facility does not find words searched. I have had to individually search papers to find what I am looking for. The text I have looking for is in the papers but does not get found on a search.

  10. clear option to upgrade when renewing sub

    allow for renewal upgrade through your account to ensure archive is not lost. At present only option is auto renew, but I don’t feel secure that that click leads to option of upgrade? It’s not clear as presented.

  11. Stop the Stupid Drop Down Panels

    I am paying to do research at the British Newspaper Archive. It's not a video game nor an entertainment for me.

    I do not need to have a drop down panel repeatedly appearing, (especially over the menu bar), and suggesting that I "Search the archive"!

    It's a nuisance! Or, do the people at the British Newspaper Archive not have the intelligence to realize it? It is not much better than to have some library worker interrupt people who are reading a book, "Would you like a book to read?" That idiot would be tossed out of a job, very soon;…

  17. defalut search to a region

    The ability to default the search to a region or county before starting a search. Lots of ancestors did not move around that much so why search the whole country

  18. Show how many matches from a search

    When you do a search, you get ten results on the page and at the bottom links to four pages. But you have no idea if there is one more page or a hundred more pages.

    It would be good to have an idea how many matches there are.

    Also to be able to navigate direct to one of those pages especially when leaving a search overnight.
