editing place list
Posted 23 June 2004 - 09:47 AM
I have several places listed and would like to be able to combine them all at the same time to one listing instead of doing one at a time.
for example ;
Portsmouth Newport Co Rhode Island
Portsmouth, Newport County, Rhode Island
Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Isand
Portsmouth, Newport, Ri
Portsmouth, Rhode Island
I would like to click on all of them and change them to one format.

Edit the one you want to retain first, just highlight the place name and press [Ctrl]-[c] to copy it to the clipboard.
Open each of the others one at a time, highlight the place name and press the [Ctrl]-[v] key combination to paste the clipboard contents in there.
With an automatic merge??
Would you want "St Lukes Church Cemetery, Jamestown, Smith, PA"
to merge with "St Lukes Church Chapel, Jamestown Smith, PA"?
Someone got burried in the first and someone got married in the latter,
-- On second thought, they are nearly the same thing

Alfred, at times I would agree with you about your example being the same.
