You do not have to go to each individual to clean up your place records.

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP including all librbay files etc.

Just go to "View - Place List - By All Places" and you will have a listing of all places in alpha order. If you double click on one of them the "Place Record" appears and you make your changes there. This will change all of the places in the project that use that place.

If you have duplicates, they are apparent when you scroll down the list. While you are in the place record, you can click on the "Find" radio button in the lower right corner of the place record, identify the place and select the place to be combined etc.

DO NOT REMOVE THE PLACE YOU COMBINED UNLESS YOU HAVE ONLY ONE PROJECT AS IT MAY BE USED IN THE OTHER PROJECT.

If you have more that one project, you must combine duplicate places in all of your projects before you delete the duplicates.

I would suggest that you use the lowest numbered place as the surviving place in all of your projects. When you are combining in the last project, you can then delete the hihger numbered duplicate places.

BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP including all librbay files etc.
