IFor some time now I have duplicate places in my gno-file. I am aware that you introduce them when you paste parts of a genogram into another genogram but as soon as I discovered that I ook precautions by removing the place names and after pasting the data type them again (I do not know if this is also true for sources ?). But sometimes a duplicate was introduced out of the blue.

I would like to know how I can remove the duplicates. I have over 400 genomaps, 91,000 persons and links, so I do not fancy to do it by hand. Especially if soon after that new duplicates will pop up.

Personally I don't think I would bother deleting places before pasting as it is reasonably straight forward to remove duplicates.

I would use Table Layout/Places and Locations... to decide which of the duplicates to keep, based on which had the most or most accurate data.  I would then rename the one(s) to delete by say adding an X to the place name. 

Then use the Table Layout/Delete (at the bottom) / Delete Places and Locations...  Choose the first place to delete. GenoPro then asks for the place to replace the deleted one so choose accordingly and GenoPro will substitute the selected place for the deleted one in each object refering to it.  Repeat for all duplicate places.

This seems easier than deleting and re-inserting place info in each pasted object.

Thanks. I will try.

But the reason why there are duplicates does't become clear. I tried to include a snapshot of the screen in my original post but that does not seem to work for reasons unknown to me. So now I attach it as places.jpeg.

In my experience, the duplication of places is because the records are a little different from a genogram to another. Just a little difference! Even a single space. These differences may relate to each of the fields in the tab.
In my opinion no need to delete anything. It sufficient unify places.
To unify the places exists the function "Consolidate Places":
From Table Layout / Places and Locations ...
- Select all duplicate Places (with CTRL + left-click)
- Then right-click on the exact place considered
- Left-click on "Consolidate Places".
See image. The differences are highlighted in red.




Got it? excuse my english.

Thanks vlepore. I followed your instrutions and within minues the duplicates were gone.

As for copying from one genomap to another, the duplicates were exact duplicates, So no leading or trailing spaces or any other difference. But I saw that the problem occurs most with place records with pictures. I will look into that and try to find out what is happening.
