Re: All relatives diagram
I agree it's odd that if you want to select someone's second
marriage as the root you have to browse for it, rather than having
it offered automatically as one of the options.
For the quickest way in the Focus window, instead of selecting Alfie click on the bar below his second partnership, where it says Married: followed by date and place (if you have the marriage date and place recorded). This selects the appropriate family record, which is automatically displayed in the 'Select Root for ... Diagram' box. Alternatively use the Records window Families tab to select the appropriate family record.
By the way, V7 has introduced this extra step when creating a diagram, by displaying the 'Select Root for ... Diagram' window. But if you don't want it you can turn off this extra stage by using Tools>Preferences>Diagrams and ticking Enable One-Click Diagram Display from Toolbar. This then gets you back to the way things worked in V6, so you can use whatever method you used in V6.
