Make the Time Slider tool usable during an edit session!!!  Currently you have to stop editing to use the Time Slider, which makes the feature unusable while performing feature collection off of satellite and aerial imagery.  Also, the message stating "the time slider cannot be enabled during an edit session" only pops up if you already have the toolbar displayed before starting and edit session.  Clicking the time slider button during an edit session does nothing, no message.

Also, it would be nice if the slider jumped to the next available image for the current display, similar to the way Google Earth's time bar works.  Currently you have to sort thru all the blank step intervals which is kind of annoying.

After further review of the Time Slider tool we have also noticed that mensuration does not work when used on older images displayed using the tool.  The mensuration tool appears to work, but it is actually taking the measurement based on the "top" image displayed by the selected mosaic method.  The image viewed using the Time Slider is not used for the measurement.  Fixing this would be another much needed improvement in the tool.
