Since the WT 2.0.7, the family names have slashes. This may have something to do with the imported GEDCOM, because there are no slashes in the demo version.

Yes. This was a deliberate change. It allows you to see the data without using the edit form.

If we displayed the "formatted" name, it would be a duplicate of the name in the title.

We should see it from the user's perspective. Unimportant information should not be in the foreground. It would be very important to see at a glance what other names a person has. E.g. if women have married several times, all previous names should be immediately visible. Nobles are also known by different names. Adoptive names, Vulgo names, religious names, ... should not be hidden either.

It is not a good thing if you have to click somewhere first to get this information.

The slashes seem to me like when I buy a Tesla and put its technical data on the body.
