Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.
Printing a Duplicates List and some other options
A lot of people overlook the fact that you can print the possible duplicates list. The reason it is overlooked is that the print option is BEFORE you actually run the Find Duplicates routine.
Go to TOOLS > MERGE DUPLICATES > FIND DUPLICATES
This is where the Print option is. If you click PRINT it will run the routine and then give you option to print the report. Most people will click CONTINUE and then find that they can't print a report from the Merge screen.
Another thing that is overlooked is that on this same screen (where Continue and Print are) there is an OPTIONS button. There are some powerful options here :) You can restrict the Find Duplicates routine to your current search list, you can restrict it to tagged individuals and you can tag the output from running the Find Duplicates routine.
