I've created a couple of my own source templates based on copies of the standard ones. They work fine for making citations, but when I looked back at the Source Template list I found that there were four of one and five of the other. Any idea on what would cause the duplicates, and how I can get rid of them?

When you drag and drop a person with a citation using a custom source template to another database that already has the same template, RM is not yet smart enough to recognize that the templates are identical and copies the template over from the originating database to the target as though it is a new and different template. I believe the requested fix is in the tracking list. Is it possible you have used DnD or GEDCOM transfers from such databases?

Confirming fix for source template duplication is in our tracking system.
