For some reason I am getting a massive amount of duplicate sources and duplicate source templates, especially in my File#5 that is a combination of Files#3 & 4.  One of my most used sources has 380 duplicates in the File#5.  It would take me hours to Merge just that one source.  Auto-Merge is the only available Merge in Source Templates and it didn't do anything, so the duplicates are just sitting there.  Could you provide a faster way to merge duplicate sources?  Could you stop RM from making duplicate sources?  (It seems like the more I use a source, the more duplicates are made, especially when Drag and Drop is used.)  The same for duplicate Source Templates?

Confirming issue is noted in the tracking system. This is only happening with custom source templates and not the default source templates.

You may get some relief from the following SQLite scripts while waiting for a solution from RootsMagic:
