I always used sources without any problem (unless I accidently created an already existing source but last night somehow completely new sources started to show as duplicities. They are all from the same book but page and web link are different. I did not find a way how to get rid of it without the need to rename the source. In the end I decided to remove all the affected links altogether and try to fill them again later to see if it helps. But even though they are now not part of any person or relation, they stayed in the database as you can see on the screenshot. I have made hunderds if not thousands of such sources (including several dozens yesterday) so I do not think I made anything in a different way than before. Do you have any idea what could have happened? Could there be some limit of new sources that I have reached or another technical reason? While trying to solve it I noticed I was still using an old version of GenoPro but even after the upgrade to GP 2020, the problem stays.






Another partly related issue I found while looking how to solve the previous problem is that if you have a space at the end of the source title (in this case "Matrika SOAPr Oráčov 30 "), it saves the source but you cannot open it again. It opens the last source in the list (the one created first) without the space instead so you can never correct the "spaced" source. Again, even though I removed the source from the person, it stayed in the database being effectively untouchable.

Thank you for any suggestions. Until I solve it I cannot add any more sources because of potential accumulating of problems in the database. I really love GenoPro and never had any problem with it before.

Have you tried the menu item Consolidate Sources and Citations?

With the Table Layout, you may select multiple sources, right-click and pick the menu item Consolidate Sources and Citations which will merge all selected sources into a single source.  If you don't like the result, you may also press the Undo button (Ctrl+Z).

Thank you. It was not the solution but somehow the problem stopped anyway after the Ctrl+Z. :-)

So, unfortunately, it was only a temporary relief and everything started again. After creating several sources without problem, all new sources now choose an already created source with the same name and make themselves a "copy" of it, even though the content is different. :-(
