People Search in Ancestris + Duplicate search don't 'correspond' yet?

Again and again I accidentally discover duplicates (or several entries of a family) that cannot be found by 'simple' comparison (I really like the duplicate search window in Ancestris!).
Without a joker (or something like that) it doesn't work!
Integrated consideration of short source entries (which could also be used for task planning - no, should) would be very, very helpful!

Manual definition of individuals marked for fusion is in the to do list.
With this evolution, you should be able to take two arbitrary individuals and merge them.

Thank you very much for your effort!

There are also cases in which I have assigned ONE pair of parents to several people (= 'children') - 2, 3, rarely 4), because I assume that they are identical, i.e. siblings).
Sometimes they're "just" cousins.
I am very often right, even though colleagues sometimes assume that I am bold.
So when I'm sure I want to right click in the appropriate Person box on the diagram and be able to select "Mark to Merge (1st + 2nd Person)". After that comes the Ancestris dialog for it, which I already like so much!
