'Ghost' entries
« on: October 22, 2018, 09:33:07 »
I added parents for a person in a pedigree. Then I realised that I had made a mistake and the record I found could not be for this person. So I 'deleted' the two parents. The problem is only the names disappeared and boxes remain empty on my family tree. What do I need to do to get rid of them?

Hi,

Thanks for your message.

If you are talking about the empty grey box after the person has been deleted, it is not actually a person. It is just a placeholder. Nothing exists in your file. So you already got rid of them.

If you want to delete both parents, you can delete the family box in the same way, if not information is useful in the family entity.

Best regards,
Frederic

Okay but it appears in the display and looks rather ugly. I am guessing when I go to print they will appear too making a mess of the final product.
