On the latest version 7 of Roots Magic (7.6.1.0) an error that occurs occasionally is when I memorize a source from one person and then go to paste it into a fact on another person, instead of pasting the source I memorized it pastes another copy of the source listed just above where I am pasting the source. ie. If I memorize source A and then go to another person who already has source B and C listed, when I paste my memorized source A instead of getting source A I get another copy of source C. Some of the correct detail text is pasted, but the source itself is wrong (not the one I memorized).

 

This is a serious problem, especially if one doesn't notice the error until a lot of sources have been pasted to various people.

After a fresh restart of RootsMagic go to File>Database Tools and run all options there in consecutive order.  Then make sure on the Citation Manager screen that you have the correct source highlighted before clicking on Memorize.
