I noticed that when title Dr. is included with name then ordinance cards are printed with just a name box, not Given Name and Surname boxes when printing temple ordinance cards. When title is removed then Given name and Surname boxes are created. This could be a glitch in system or by design. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just keep the Dr. title and then the title would not be printed on the ordinance card. As is now, I must remove Dr. designation in title and then add it back, or put as another custom fact. I think it is respectful to keep titles, especially when it is meaningful to submitters. This could be a programming fix, if needed.

I believe titles should be used very sparingly within FamilySearch programs and processes. As a general rule, the person's name in their profile should be the birth one and only individuals of the nobility / royalty have a title from birth.
In spite of some of them being ministers of the church, I would never add a "Rev." as a title to these relatives, because - like "Dr." - it is a title only acquired much later in life.
In summary, I believe the simple solution in nearly all such cases is to not add a title to the main name.0
