Re: PAF 5 mess - double almost everyone in file!

I am having the same problem with several of my .paf files. The problem is, I did have backups and after I fixed everything, the names doubled up again. Match/merge doesn't find them and neither does making a list of duplicate individuals or possible problem reports. But, when I try to print a ancestor chart in PAF Companion, the problems show up, i.e., it will say something like "John Doe in generation 1 is his own grandfather in generation 3. Can't print chart." It seems to be some kind of bug and it is driving me crazy! I am trying to print everything out for Christmas gifts and I am stuck. Please help.
