Managing Profiles

I struggled with Profiles in getting them in the order I wanted them in and always having my Transmit profiles at the top of the list.
I took to adding a number starting with 01 thru xx for my Global profiles that had transmitter profiles.  and R01 thru Rxx for my receive only profiles that I also build a transmit profile for that said turn the TX power to zero (0) and the mike all the way down.  I know FRS inhibits the transmitter out of band but it pays to be careful. 
The sort is alpha and fixed the only special characters allow are $ - and _ .  So by starting with 01 instead of 1 it put is first and 02 second etc...  The R for my receive only profiles starts the at the bottom of the list.   

As for FRS and Ideas 
1: it would help if I could have just edited the name of the Profile as I was I had to load it, rename it , save it then delete the old one. 
2: allow a few additional special characters like : or # or *  
3: Make the profile manager dialog box work so when you grab the corner and try to enlarge the box it actually opens up the viewing area so you see the whole list and all the way across...

Some nice ideas Dan.

Hopefully, the long-awaited profile and persistence documentation should not be too long coming.
