It would be nice if, when warping imagery in georeferencing tools, one could graphically manipulate GCPs after they are added in order to fine-tune them, rather than having to delete the point and add a new one.

Also, it would be nice to be able to right-click in the link table and zoom to, flash, or otherwise highlight the location of the point in question, similar to functionality in other parts of the ArcMap interface.

Lastly, if you could either resize the link table window to grab a screenshot, or better yet, output a report which shows all links, residual error and RMSE for the collection of points, this would be great since reporting the accuracy of your warp is important.

I also find it annoying that the control points are numbered in the Link Table but are not numbered in the map, which makes it near impossible (short of clicking each point to see which one is highlighted) to find a bad control point to delete it.
As part of that, be able to delete the control point graphically.

FYI, control points are highlighted when you click in the link table; they turn yellow. It’s sometimes hard to see, though.

I agree, and it's the same problem in the Spatial Adjustment Tool. First you have the link table where you can see the errors for each Point, but when you have adjusted the points you would like to keep the errors in order to know the quality of the adjustment.

Now, you have to make a screenshot of the link table before the adjustment and save it in Word document or similar...
