Great Software but could use some minor improvements (#´ ω ` # )

I use the software extensively at work and it works terrific; just as advertised! The fact that the software starts up when I login is terrific, but I kinda wish it would just minimize or hide away to the menu bar instead of just opening mid screen upon login. I would love to see phenics added to the application, such as Furigana phonetics for the Japanese language. Wonderful application and worth the investment, just wish a few more additions were made 💛
