Hi Cheri, hi Linda,

thanks.
I must have been blind, so I am not looking down on this tab. I am always
looking in the upper section of this tab.

Best regards

Ulrich

Ulrich - The cursor must be in the box for the defining event, not on the
identifier. Then you can delete. You can also simply select the defining
event text string in the box about 1/2 way down the page and delete it. The
"..." is to the immediate right of this text box. The label for the box is

For Selected Identifier: Defining Event

That is where you need cursor placement to either (1) right click & delete,
OR (2) select the text and delete, or (3) click on the "..." and change the
defining event to a different one.

Hi Linda,

when I right click on the name and select delete then I delete the
identifier and not only the link to the event.
What do you mean with "..." ? I can't find it.
Can you tell me in which window you do that? I have made all these inputs
and assignings in the individuals view -> identifier tab.

Ulrich
