Finding Duplicates

You can check your library for duplicates at any time by clicking Find Duplicates under the Organize tab. Any reference identified as a duplicate will have a yellow background. You can quickly select the Duplicates checkbox for all the references with the yellow background or select them individually then click on Delete.
