That request or enhancement, has been on the "to do" list for years and years. On the one hand, and to their credit, the "development" group has likely changed personnel at least once during the time this request has been made. Therefore, a thorough understanding of the reason for the request was at best lacking .... I think they've got it now.
On the other hand, this same development team has Softdent version 17 on their sights, so don't look for that enhancement to show up anytime soon.
There is a workaround .... the details are listed elsewhere on this site.
