Duplicate documents
I have merged several collections of notes from several different sources into one Ultra Recall database.

There are some duplicates in this database, but it is hard to find them amongst so many entries.

I have constructed a search which just searches for documents where the 'Item Text' exists. This gives me a sorted list of all items wherever they are in the hierarchy, form this I can look at items with similar titles and see if they are the same.

I do not wish to to just delete duplicates since their position in the hierarchy gives contextual information, what I would like to do is to make them all clones. Delete all but one of the copies but replace each deleted copy with a clone of the remaining duplicate.

The problem is getting back from the sorted list to the original position of the duplicate. Is there any easy way to do this? Am I missing something here?

Select and copy the item to clone/link to, then select the item to delete. In the Item Parents pane (Ctrl+6), double-click on one to go to that parent, with that child selected in the Child Items pane. In the tree of Child Items pane, delete the duplicate item and then paste to link to the item to clone.

That works, almost. When I double click on the item in the item parents panel the item's parent is opened but the item is not selected.

It should be selected in the Child Items pane, if you have v5.1.0.2 or later installed (Help | About | Install Info).
