I'm manually identifying and deleting duplicates and it's quite hard to remember which one to delete when the items are closed and I'm looking at a list of 4 or 5 almost identical versions of each reference. When the items are open, I can scroll through and choose the master copy, add codes so I know I have all my data... and then I want to be able to delete the other references that I no longer need. This would be a really helpful function ... please and thank you.

PS I'm not sure what the 'notification' box below is meant to do, but I've had some responses to my posts yet no emails received to tell me that I've had a response

Hi Ruth,

If I understood this correctly, you are manually "deleting" items that are duplicates, this is because you have already coded many items, so you want to manually merge the coding information and choose the master accordingly. Fair enough, this is a very sensible approach in your situation. What you would like, is the ability to "delete" a document from within the "document details" window.
Yes, this is possible, and we will try to add this ability with the next update.

I would also like to add the ability to mark items as duplicates in the same "document details" window, but this will need some more care and attention so I don't expect to be able to have it ready for the next minor upgrade.

Thanks for sharing your wish list!

Sergio

PS this forum is quite 'moody', the notification emails do work for me, but in some circumstances they don't, or they even cause other problems. We are working on a major upgrade for the whole site, with new, much improved forums. If all will go according to plan the upgrade should happen in early Autumn, so we are not going spend too much time trying to fix the current (doomed) forum installation.
