Hello, a RootsMagic helpful person:

 

I somehow accidentally created a profile (actually a handful of them) that wrongly has two different sets of parents on the top of a profile or duplicates of one set of parents.  Is there a way, preferably an easy way, to remove the wrong sets or duplicated parents?

Right-click on the child and choose <Unlink> and then <From Parents>
-OR-
Highlight the child and then choose <Edit> from top menu and <Unlink>, then <From Parents>

Why are these questions even being asked?  There is a help file/F1 in the software that will answer a lot of those simple questions.

Hi Advanced Member:

 

I am sure you were not trying to insult me.  I also do not have a mouse and cannot right click.  I looked up using F1 how to remove duplicate parents shown in an individuals profile and not shown on the pedigree.  There was no answer.  Perhaps you know how to do this from the profile setting?

Hello,

 

Thank-you.  Someone on another RootsMagic 7.0 forum pointed out if I highlighted a person's name then clicked on spouses or parents in the upper left hand I could delete the duplicates or wrong sets of parents or spouses.  Marvelous time saver.

Thanks,

Sandra
