Also, can you combine places.  Like if you have two places that were spelled different, if you delete the bad one it wipes out that misspelled place in your database I assume, so then you edit it to spell it correctly but now you two...

You can also use Search&Replace on Places


Going by your comment regarding having to type almost all the Place to see what you want in the predictive list; this predictive list is derived from Places you have already entered yourself so it would sound like you have many similar textual entries. I would suggest going to Lists > Place List and merging your duplicates first and keeping your Place resource clean and absent from duplication, also from the Place List you can edit the Places to whatever personal format you choose.


This is mostly documented in the Help File, click on it and in the Contents select Working with Places to learn more about how to manage your Places, personally I believe accurate locations are one of the most important research elements so well worth the effort to have a concise understandable list without duplication.

That worked.

Go to Tools>DataClean>PlaceClean and under "Add or Remove Country" select "Remove this country from places" then enter the name. 


When you are in the place field click on the globe icon to bring up the place list and you can see the complete listing under what you began to type. 

When I click on placeclean it says "cannot find placedb.dat"

If it exists, where is it?


Also, when you start to type a place, a drop down menu lists some possible places but only so many of them.  Often you have to type almost the whole place before it pops up the next batch of possible places.  Why not show ALL the possibles on the pop up.
