I just noticed several cases of phantom citations in my database (v. There will be a check mark under the person source heading and the source block text will be in bold font but when you open the citation manager there will be nothing there and clicking various makes nothing happen. The "Edit Person" window thinks there's a citation but none is found. Has anyone else seen this?

There are no blank sources or anything like that in my source list.

There are priors on this subject on these threads from Jan and Jul and a SQLite query to fix it. That's a good discovery on the cause of the offsetting of citation numbers on the website.
