Ok I think this might be a pretty cool idea.How about Once an alibi checks our as fake or real it gets put by the persons name so we don't have to write it down or go and look again after we bring all thw suspects out. Or you could make it so once you determine if someone is a suspect or not it goes into two different lists a fake alibi list or real alibi list. or even a third list if you can't determine weather that person is real or fake because they clam up on you. Or how about if you don't like any of thos two ideas the link to the fake persons name changes color if they are found out to be fake.

I think if we wanted a notepad, we could use Notepad, and Ben wouldn't need to do a thing.

But summarizing the attributes and evidence for each character on the case status screen is just an efficient time-saving feature. It doesn't reduce the skill because the information is already available, it just avoids having to click 22 times for 11 suspects.

But being organized in your notes is where it's significant

I agree with ctown28. But gosens also has a point. And then there is the case file, all the information is there, but it takes a lot of clicking to get to it, that could be easier I guess. But what would realy make taking notes easier without changing the need to take them, is if new suspects would just be added to the bottom of the list.

I use notepad to insert suspects in the same order as the list.

BTW, there seems to have been some new code re the back button - now it takes new information into account (e.g. if you check someone's alibi and press back, the option to check their alibi isn't there any more).

I'm going to agree with ctown on this one. I like the info the way it is. It's a challenge now, and part of the fun is travelling around, I think.

I have another idea. Why not include, next to alibi, hall of recs. info. Like: Bartender(Fake, Court for Robbery)

Including Hall of Recs info somewhere is a good idea I think. If an agent passes a case on to another detective, they get all the case notes except for that. (Unless there's a reason that's desirable?)

Also I think it would be realistic for a detective to keep a summary list of whose alibis are fake or unproven visible on the case file page without having to click to open each person. I do keep notes, myself, but this seems reasonable to me. Whereas for hair, handedness, and body type, it seems reasonable to have to go back to the individual's file - even though I am no big fan of clicking. The clicking is worse when trying to ask questions of someone, I think. Ask the tailor about the thread. Then the specific person. Not right? Well, I want to ask again, of course! Even better would be for the person you already asked about to disappear as an option. Although one could argue that would oversimplify, I know - keep notes...

i keep notes myself but i agree like client is always bold after questioning it should not be bold anymore that way you know that you already questioned the client, just like new disappears after you have questioned then client should not be in bold after questioning (it still says client though).

it says CLIENT, in bold white letters so you know which one is your client, not to know whether or not you've questioned him/her

It makes it easier when you go back to check an alibi, leave, come back for more questions (Do you suspect Marvin Guessing?)--and finding them dead. It stinks when that happens.
