Default D3N Complaints and HELP

OK now that we have that out-of-the-way this is a complaint /begging for help thread!

If there is anyone out there who might consider themselves an expert in this particular piece of Kenwood programming ... then I am all ears.

So far this is what I believe to be true of this particular piece of software:
1) absolutely SLOW
2) everything has to be duplicated first by creating a personality then you can create a channel within a zone based on the personality
3) Maneuvering around and trying to find the things that we are used to being able to find easily is 100% counter intuitive and dumb
4) I will have to manually type in every single channel in every single site because Kenwood in their infinite wisdom has decided there’s no freaking reason for us to be able to import from A previous software install like KPG-141D etc
5) And last but not least we have to pay extra for the ability to use the Kenwood technology that makes the radio worth having a.k.a. wideband for ham operators and trunking.

Anyway now that I am done ranting and raving I need some guidance with:
A) is there a way to more easily program in talk groups without having to create a personality and then create a channel was in a zone?
B) does anyone have any suggestions on the best method of creating scan lists?

Keep in mind I am going to kind of need some step-by-step instructions if you have the ability to do so and most of what I have complained about has been based on NXDN Trunking.

Don't know about slow like D1, but I have a topic on how to import from 111 or 141. If you have LTR you have to do that manually.
