I used a fact for one person and shared it among several others. But this is the wrong person and I would like to apply the fact to the correct person. I realize I could delete the fact and start over, but is there a way to save myself the time?

There isn't an option to transfer or copy a fact. You'll have to enter a new fact on the correct person. Memorize and paste any sources before deleting the fact for the other person.

You could learn how to use SQLite and, with some knowledge about the RootsMagic database structure, change the OwnerID of the fact from the current person to the new person. A very small number of keystrokes after some (much?) longer period spent learning what you need to know.
